It’s the Sixth week of the semester. I hope your semester has been going AWESOME so far. Hope those exams are treating you well. This week I had two exams and one speech. I did pretty well on my Math Exam and I am waiting for my Physics Exam results. So far I like my Math Class but things are starting to get a bit more abstract. I really like that my classes are starting to coincide and complement each other well.
As I mentioned last week, it was my birthday, I had a good time with my friends on Friday night. We went to the Vagina Monologues. The monologues were really empowering. They were performed by different women from all over campus. I even saw Michelle Geddes; her performance was very empowering and fresh. After the monologues, my friends and I went to Lalo’s to dance the night away. It was really fun and I loved having friends from all different parts of my life there, it was a nice feeling.
After a fun night, it was time to prepare for the exams on Monday and the SHPE Jr Event. The SHPE Jr. Event gave us a chance to provide a different type of event for the SHPE Jr. Students. They had a chance to shadow some of our UIC members (Diana, Emmanuel, and Perla), talk to our chapter advisors, tour the school, and compete in a friendly competition with students from other organizations. With an event as big as this one, a lot of help was needed to make it a success. It could not have been a success without my friends (Victor, Anthony, and Janis).
On Tuesday, Valentine’s Day SHPE-UIC had a Sale in the Student Center East. Along with selling flowers and chocolate, there was a panda that was taking pictures in exchange for donations. It was successful and a lot of fun as well. There are a lot of pictures on the SHPE-UIC Facebook Page, you should check them out.
Have an AWESOME Weekend!
