Change Has Come to Akron!

Haha, not that change was needed, Patsy was an excellent President. But at the same time, I look forward to my administration and hope not to let Akron or Ohio CKI down! So I'm kinda feeling very Circle K-popular right now, and I'll try not to let it go to my head and just have this one brag-atory blog and then get to homework and you won't have to worry about me thinking I'm more important than I am. Cause at the end of the day, the post-it I put on my wall is true: "Circle K is just a college club." Something I hope I remember over the next year.

Bragging: If you think I'm too arrogant already, skip this paragraph. 09-10 Akron Club President, woop woop! Looking forward to running those meetings and excitin the populace! Got alot of recruiting to do to, and suggesting some new ideas to my great board of officers and chairs. Then you've got me appointed District President(s) Council Chair, so glad to be on the District Board! Board trainer was a blast, and I think its going to be an excellent year, and Jen had some really encouraging words for me and she's always been such a great friend :D! Then you've got Key Club DCON, and working with the Circle K Alumni Association, and apparently I'm going to be in a Circle K publication of some kind, as Patsy wrote a heart-warming (and true ;) ) article on me and Melissa took a not-so-good pic off my facebook for it. AAAAnd I won the Kiwanis scholarship, so I get to speak in front of them Thursday and look all fancy which will be fun. Woo! Go Me!

Bragging over. Let me just say this is going to be an interesting year, to say the least. I got a 90% A- on that Andrew Johnson paper, woop woop! That was the first of several final drafts (don't get me started...) so I'll be able to bring that up I expect. And I got two papers due tomorrow I need to do at work tonight (writing this to avoid doing them, lol.) As for my social calendar, David's spending the night at Akron in two weeks, and I'm going to see Secondhand Serenade and Red Jumpsuit Aparatus in concert here at EJ Thomas later this month!

So, for various reasons (I won't name names) in the past 3-4 months my life was pretty bad and depressing and from a line graph perspective, and hit an annoying low - particularly when I think back to a Myspace blog I wrote back in... I don't remember what month, November or December I think where I noted I was on top of the world and at one of the happiest points in life. And despite all this paper work, homework, and responcibility I am proud to declare I have made it out of the happiness recession! Things in life are going for me again, and I have various people and things to thank for it, and if I could in a blog I would. Oh, I can. Thank You all! The friends that read this are included in that, cause this blog is certainly some kind of interesting insight into my own thoughts.

Quote of the Day:
"Who has a button up shirt in every color, loves [a] cup of apple chai tea, solves life’s mysteries with Wikipedia, and can tell you anything you want to know about the 26th president of the United States? Most people would be shocked to hear a person of such varied interests actually exists, but anyone in the University of Akron Circle K club can tell you this is the perfect description of their friend, Andrew..."
- Patsy, describing me in a Newsletter! Patsy's the best.

Song of the Day: NOT Pussycat Dolls. Get out of my head ><;;! Because I'm going to see SHS and RJSA -- I thought I'd find some songs by them I like that I don't already know. How about "Why" by SHS.

House Perk of the Day:
I don't have to wait outside overnight to get a room in the Honors Complex like some of those other poor unfortunate souls.

I'm so excited for you Andrew! Glad to hear you made it out of the happiness recession. And as for bragging, go right ahead; you certainly deserve it! I know you'll accomplish great things this year =)
