[casino night and hurricane fright]

October 31st, 2012 jrspad16

I know that is a horrible title, but it’s the best I could come up with.

Last Friday night was the Family Weekend Casino Night, and I was a Black Jack dealer. It was a lot of fun; my parents came up and all my friends played at my table. It took me a few games to get the hang of dealing but after a while, I figured it out. Definitely the most embarrassing moment for me was when I told a man at my table that he had busted and was at 22, when he actual had 21. The man looked at me and said, “I hope you’re not a math major.” Good thing I like the humanities.

The next day I spent with my parents and hit up a Chipotle for the first time in a while. That’s one bad thing about Holy Cross: No Chipotle Dining Option.

After all the fun of Parents’ Weekend, I was ready to buckle up and hit the books, but then the news of Sandy spread around campus. The last three days have been very interesting. Most of Monday and all of Tuesday, Holy Cross was shut down. We didn’t have classes, and had to stay in our Residence Halls. It was one of those experiences that created a lot of memories. Like the story of how I went for my assigned nature walk in the woods for Montserrat [in shorts] before I heard how bad the hurricane was going to get. Or the story of the ecstatic upper class men who ran around campus blaring “Rock You Like a Hurricane” [one of them dressed in a banana suit]. The storm was terrible and affected many lives, so please don’t think that we were celebrating the approaching storm; we were just excited the fact that classes had been cancelled.

The last few days were exciting, but I am looking forward to getting back into the swing of things.

This was picture I took on my Nature walk for class. The hurricane was getting bad and I was soaked, but I couldn't stop myself taking pictures.
