2010-09-14 - New Frat Fam

My frat little brother got his own little brother last night! I’m sure he’s gonna do great.

(L-R: Me, Kevin, Rachel)

Breakfast at Tiffany’s performed by Instrumental at the 2010 Kappa Kappa Psi and Tau Beta Sigma Southeast District Convention on April 10, 2010 at the University of Florida Hilton.

It’s been a while since I made a post and I’m at a good stopping point with everything else.

I haven’t had much time lately to read any books. My list is starting to get long. I’m hoping that once I wrap up most of the website projects I can get back to reading. That or I’ll have to give up some of the daily news reading/scanning that I do. I have been able to play a decent amount of games though. I finished Dragon Age: Origins, Mass Effect 2 and I’ve been playing Star Trek Online.

Website Design
These past few weeks most of my attention has been focused on the websites I maintain. I finally put the final touches on my professional site. I also finished the majority of the theme work on this site and I did a quick build out of another website. The last website will be getting a facelift this weekend.

Business Research Project
I’m starting to gather my research for a business project. I’ve started bookmarking interesting articles and links in Safari. But I’m going to need to take it to the next level soon and hit up the UF Libraries. I’ve actually never been inside one of the UF Libraries, so it should be an interesting experience.

Psi & Sigma A Cappella
Last semester, I finally got the A Cappella group off the ground and started. This semester it’s really starting to take off. It’s taken up a lot of my time (and some money) and I feel that the investments that the people in the group have made are about to really pay off. Our first (and main) performance is just over a month away. I can’t wait.

Blogging, Writing, etc…
I’ve got a lot of ideas swimming around in my head. I’ve been writing some of them down but haven’t had a lot of time to expand upon them. Maybe Saturday I’ll sit at the computer and hammer out some rough drafts, hopefully around five to seven of them.’,’It’s been a while since I made a post and I’m at a good stopping point with everything else.

2008-12-26 - Smile Friday
This is a picture of me and my big brother (the blonde) and my big sister (the brunette). These two wonderful ladies helped me through my pledge process (we’re a co-ed frat).

Older brothers won 5-3.

We had to even up the teams a bit.

I did pretty well. I fielded most of the kick off returns to get us in good position.

I had defended one pass playing back as the safety.

I had about four rushes for about 30 yards and a touchdown.

And I caught one pass for 10 yards.

Also threw up some good blocks playing in the TE/Slot Receiver spots.

Now time to get ready for the Christmas party!

Well I’m about to wrap things up at work and go pick up some stuff for tonight.

Pledge Bowl – Our chapter has an annual football game between the brothers. The last two classes and their trainer line up on one side and the rest of the brotherhood lines up on the other. I didn’t get to play last year but I’m excited for this year even if my little brother is on the other team.

Christmas Party – We don’t have an official formal for our frat and our joint banquet is in the Spring semester. So this is our formal event for the Fall. It’s a classy affair with egg nog and apple cider, cookies, sodas and other fun stuff. I just need to get home right after Pledge Bowl and clean up and get some stuff.

After the disasters that were Wednesday and Thursday, this Friday is shaping up very nicely.

GPOYW: Ritual Edition. Cat, Jess and I went down to the University of South Florida to attend their initiation. We grabbed a picture of us in front of their Big Ass Psi.
