The three-week COUNTDOWN!

Listen up UIC!

How are your stress levels? Mine is about to skyrocket. We need a plan to take on FINALS Week — it’s only three weeks away and that’s too short. Right now I’m buried to my neck in term projects, homework and leftovers of midterm week. So the stress is starting to pick up closely. To alleviate the stress, here’s what I did this week.

Pics of the Week:

Maxwell Street Market: Every Sunday, there's a flea market filled with vendors and mobile restaurants.


Chinatown! My friends and I went to Chinatown this past week too. =)

So when I’m stressed out, I like to play video games (Call of Duty, Grand Theft Auto, Dead Island) or watch TV shows (“Friends,” “How I Met Your Mother”). Sometimes, I also like to escape stress by playing the piano, too. Thank goodness Campus Housing has piano rooms.

I also attended our UIC ASCE meeting (American Society of Civil Engineers). The guest speaker talked about the “100 year storm.” The true definition of that term means that each day that we live, there is a 1/100 chance (1 percent) that the storm of the decade will occur. He was talking about how cities and towns do preventative measures to defend against flooding — a common issue in the Midwest region.

Learning from past mistakes- Storms of the Century.

I noticed that the show “Friends” is playing a lot on TV lately, especially Nick@Nite. As a random tribute article, I’m going to write about my Top 3 favorite episodes on the TV show “Friends.”

Top 3: “Friends” Episodes 

3. “The One Where Everyone Finds Out” (Episode 14 of Season 5)
This where the gang finds out Chandler and Monica are dating, resulting from a promiscuous photo they accidentally accused Joey of taking.

2. “The One with the Prom Video” (Episode 14 of Season 2)
After going through old videos, Rachel finds out what Ross did the night of prom back when they were high school students.

1. “The Last One” (Episode 17 of Season 10)
Do Ross and Rachel truly end up together??? Watch and find out — 52.5 million wiewers saw the most-watched episode of the series. =)


Back to watching “Friends” now! See you all next week,


TOPIC NEXT WEEK: Thanksgiving!

QUESTION OF THE WEEK: What form of caffeine do you use to stay awake to study? (I use apples and coffee.)
