Hooray for Ice Day!01.31.2011
Last year we all rejoiced when we had a snow day. This year, something even more epic and unheard of has happened. Today, the University of Dayton canceled school on account of ice! It sounds strange, but I think the ice is actually more treacherous than the snow. Generally falling in snow doesnÂt really cause too much damage as it is a fluffy substance. Ice, however, is quite less forgiving. If you watch my video blog from this morning you'll understand my firsthand experience of this fact. IÂd normally like to think that my very powerful blog plea had something to do with convincing the administration that a cancellation would be in our best interests, but seeing as how I didnÂt upload it until this morning after we had already been awarded the day off, I canÂt really take too much credit. I can say ÂThanks UD!Â though, and write this blog about what IÂm doing instead of going to classes.
After forcing myself out of bed at 10 am I proceeded to make coffee for Emily and me. I kind of lost count of how many cups I actually drank but I think itÂs somewhere around 3. I also read my French homework and worked on editing Musical Revue. I figured that today would be the perfect opportunity to learn how to use Final Cut and IÂve actually gotten quite a bit done. IÂm taking a break now to watch ÂGold Diggers of 1933Â for my American History as Film class and then IÂll get back to the real work.
I have to say that this ice day could not have come at a better time. I was starting to feel the stress of the semester and having today off from classes and meetings made me a lot calmer and more productive. So now IÂm off to enjoy this day, Âiced inÂ with my roommates with coffee, movies, and warm blankets for comfort.
If youÂre affected by the weather, stay safe and warm! Also, IÂd love to hear what you all are doing today so leave me some comments!
