The annual Woods Factor Talent Show is this Friday, tomorrow, at 7 p.m.
A girl in my sorority, Baylie Borman approached me and asked if I would like to be in the show because they wanted more acts. I of course said YES! Then the next step was figuring out what I was talented at. After some thought I decided I wanted to do something fun, not serious, so I am going to rap and Eminem song dressed as an MnM. What do you think of that idea?
I didn't want to do it alone, so another sorority sister of mine, Melissa Williams, is going to come on stage and sing the chorus for my rap. The song I am doing is "Space Bound" by Eminem, it is on his Recovery CD. I chose this song because I already memorized the lyrics. I was a big fan during the summer between my sophomore and junior year in college when the CD came out.
Now that I have the song and the costume, I am extremely ready/nervous/excited/nervous/nervous/nervous for tomorrow, please wish me luck!
I am the second act, how nerve wracking! This is never something that I could have done as a freshman. I have gained so much confidence and skills here at the Woods just from having such a great support system.
Did I mention I was nervous?
Either way, tomorrow is EQS* weekend and the Talent Show which will prove to be a very busy and fun day for me.
Want to know more about the Talent Show? Here is a news release that I wrote about it.
I promise I will post pictures!

It has been beautiful out for the past few days here at The Woods! Spring is starting to roll in. The sun is shining, it has been warm, and everyone is enjoying time outside!
Yesterday when I was walking back to my room from class, I felt all the happiness that comes with getting outside after winter. The fraternity and sorority houses had their front doors open with music blasting, and a lot of students were outside playing catch. Everyone seems to have a little spring in their step!
At my sorority, the girls like to lay out on the lawn to get some sun. We have a small pool that we fill up when it's warm enough to dip our feet in. Sometimes we get creative, and put a tarp in the bed of a pick up and then fill it with water! Yesterday the girls were outside with their feet in the pool, and a few more were laying in the grass with the music going and a gentle breeze. Everyone welcomed the study break!
Another great thing about the beautiful weather is that there are chances to get LEAD points outside! In the fall people often go to the soccer games. This time of year, baseball is playing. It's a super fun way to earn a LEAD point. You just bring your bottle of water and a few snacks and watch the game with your friends!
Another fun way to get some LEAD points outside is through frisbee golf! I had never hear of this game before I came to The Woods, but apparently it is pretty popular. You just check out some discs from Weider Fitness Center, and there is a course than runs all over campus. The object is to throw the disc into the metal nets with the fewest tries. I've done it a few times and even though I don't have the best aim, it is a lot of fun to run around our beautiful campus with a group of friends.
Campus Activities Board also hosts some outdoor events where you can get LEAD points! Last fall they hosted an outdoor moving night and we had a concert on the dock. I really enjoy all the different types of LEAD events at The Woods, especially when I can take a break and go outside.
I love spring weather! Everyone seems a little brighter and it is great to get outdoors. We are getting ready for Spring Break here at The Woods, it is just over a week away! I'm excited to go to Disney World with my family. Then we will come back and I'm sure the rest of the semester will just fly by! Enjoy the sunshine
