The Farce Side Comedy Show of Arizona State University

One day, walking around the Memorial Union at ASU, I heard a commotion coming from downstairs. "Get down here for a free comedy show!" someone announced over a microphone. How can you pass up an invitation like that? I went down stairs and saw my very first Farce Side Comedy show.

Ever since then, I have been a huge fan. These guys are absolutely hilarious! It's like Saturday Night Live when it was still funny. hahaha.

This semester, I actually have class during their day-time performance, but every friday at the MU AfterDark, they have both stand-up comedy and improv.

Check it out!

All Nighter Because I'm Leaving on a Jet Plane

Ok, so I just had a bunch of QT's high-octane energy drink. I don't know what high-octane means, but I can assure you that it is pretty potent stuff. I feel all cracked out like I've had 3 shots of espresso!!!

But seriously, I'm actually thinking of staying up all night because tomorrow, my brother is leaving back to Washington because he's only here temporarily on leave from the Army. But it's not so bad; he works on helicopters and tends not to get shot at, unless you count his sergeants occasionally shooting evil stares at him for not being absolutely perfect in every way. It seems they have a way of being nit-picky.

Anyway, I do have a test tomorrow, and since I don't have French tomorrow due to my teacher taking a trip of her own to a family reunion, and thereby I was left with only one class tomorrow, I was thinking of just skipping school and hanging out with Joe until he has to go. However, as it turns out, the one class that I was considering not going to I actually have an exam in. That is all fine seeing as how I would end up going there later anyway for the gym and for the MU AfterDark.

All in all, pretty awesome stuff. I'll let you know what's going on...

Model United Nations Fire Alarm in the MU at ASU

Last Thursday was yet another amazing meeting for the Model United Nations of Arizona State University. Despite starting late, due to a fire alarm, we ended up getting a lot done.

We've almost sold all of our Jamba Juice cards, we have a tabling event tomorrow (which I regretfully cannot make it to due to family arrangements), and we've got a restaurant event coming up. It's pretty cool.

So far, Russell (AKA NuNu) and Isaac haven't shown very much interest in the organization. NuNu was going to participate, but after realizing that there is in fact actual work involved, he opted not to. Jonathan, however, whom I like to call Jonathan Masters (due to the fact that he got his Master's degree at age twenty), he said that he was still very interested in helping out the organization even if he's not allowed to participate. I sincerely hope that he is able to come with us. He's quite well versed in the art of Model United Nations, and this is definitely one of his passions; however, unfortunately, due to the fact that he's currently a student, it's kind of up in the air. However, if in the case that he were to take even one class (regardless of what it was) for next semester, he could most certainly come with us. Unfortunately, he's been too busy with work to attend the meetings.

That is just one of the many things going on at ASU currently, and for the sake of completeness, I will simply end this now and talk about other things at a later date. I am highly considering writing here every day like I used to (last semester), but it can be a huge commitment sometimes; so we'll see.
