Fall in Athens

Athens, OH 26 October 2017

Week 9 is in the books. We have not had many fall-like days so far this semester, so shorts and t-shirts to class have changed to coats and jeans in a matter of days.

So far, this semester has gone pretty smoothly. I feel like I have understood my core classes pretty well and I have started scheduling for next semester already.

In addition to the core classes, I am taking my first non-STEM related class since high school, Philosophy. I tell you what, it’s quite a change to go from equations and math in every step to a class that involves no numbers at all. It has made me use a different part of my brain than I have used in a while, and I think this has benefited me.

As the last little bit of the true fall weather comes to a close, it is only fitting that Halloween is this weekend. Like I said before, this is my first fall in Athens so I have never gotten to experience the well-renowned Ohio University “HallOUween”, and I am excited to see what it is all about. To make the weekend even bigger, Ohio State plays in the biggest game of the year on Saturday afternoon, so a win would make the celebration that much sweeter.
