Easter weekend was great and like Spring Break, couldn’t have come at a better time. To start off the long weekend I celebrated the great weather on Thursday playing some beach volleyball at a friend’s apartment complex. I hadn’t played in a long while, since I live in Malibu for college, but it was just as fun and a great way to kick off the “break”. Thursday night I put on a pair of cowboy boots for the first time and learned how to two-step at Wild West with friends from the program. It was the first time I really felt immersed in a stereotypical Texan situation but was fun nonetheless.
Friday and Saturday were scattered with half studying/writing papers and half watching the Masters. (Who am I kidding, it was like 70% watching the Masters and typing parts of a paper every 30 minutes when there was a commercial). On Easter Sunday, which was also the final day for the Masters, I got up and went to St. Peter’s in the morning with a friend from the program for Easter Mass. Although there are a lot of other religions present in Texas it is good to have a strong Catholic base at St. Peters. After church it was time to tune in to Augusta. I had a buddy stop by to watch the final round with me and predict what would happen (not a smart thing when watching golf, it never works) but still had a good time.
Monday was a special treat. Having the Monday after Easter off is something I had never experienced but welcomed with open arms. Its odd, I have been attending Catholic/Christian school as long as I can remember but for some reason Baylor is the only school that gives that Monday as a day off. I treated it like a Friday, sort of. We had a group meeting in the morning where we got a great deal of our Organizational Behavior project done and put a dent, albeit a tiny dent, in the paper. Then came the fun part. I headed out to Twin Rivers to play golf with 3 guys from the program. You could say we were inspired after the Masters or just wanted to gear up for the GBA golf tournament on Saturday. Regardless, we didn’t need much of an excuse to play with how nice it was.
It was a great weekend that was made that way by classmates in the program. I did a ton of different things over the four and a half days and there were people in the program I could do all of them with – definitely makes life easier when you know someone will always be up for one of the activities you’re trying to do. Speaking of which – a bunch of us have an intramural softball game tonight so time to get some work done before that.
