Another cold West Texas morning. Not your typical morning, though. I awoke this morning (at 6 o'clock, no less!) to find a fresh blanket of snow covering the ground, and wind throwing tiny particles of ice through the air, stinging my face, numbing my ears. All this I experienced just by opening the front door of my Residence Hall!

I arrive at work to find a note on the dry-erase board telling everyone, "I pitty the fool who don't vote!" What a perfect way to remind me that I'm not registered to vote in this county. Ah, the life of a college student.

And the day has not yet begun. I still must venture out into the tundra this campus has become. Striving to make good grades. Hoping to make that 2.5 GPA so I can assume my role as Resident Assistan next semester here at Texas Tech University.
