the NFL is backkkk

I spent this past weekend in Chicago and I really enjoyed it. It's so shiny,clean and new looking. About 40 of us from the GC department all departed ATL on Friday. Bryson and I almost missed our flight but luckily made it with a few minutes to spare. We got to Chi-town later afternoonish...and didn't have any obligations with school so we all just walked around and found a place to eat then went out on the town that night. Saturday we all attended the Print 09 conference. It was the largest building I had ever been in. I went on a boat tour of the architecture around the city which was amazing. Then we all went out Saturday, dancing and singing all night. Sunday more Print 09 and just like that we were heading back to Clemson.

Finally, it's here...The NFL is back. Week 1 is in the books and what a crazy week it was. Starting with games on Thursday night and ending with two Monday night games. The packers came out with a victory at the end of the game while Cutler threw 4 INTs. The game was on TV but I didn't get a chance to watch it because we were on the road back. I was watching the stats on my phone but it's certainly not the same. Rodgers had a great play fake on 3rd and 1 and threw a bomb to jennings for a TD to seal the deal. Apete looked unstoppable going well over 150 yards with two scores. He looks like he's on another level than everyone else. Tom Brady escaped a near loss to the Bills. He threw for 2 TD's in the last two minutes of the game and once again showed he is one of the best, if not the best QB in the league.

But with football comes fantasy and this is our second annual family fantasy football league. This year we all put in 20$ and there will be a nice little pay out at the end of the season. It makes all the games a lot more fun to watch. Cheyenne beat me in the first week so i'm 0-1 to start the year off :)

Back to school, tests and quizzes are already starting up, cluggg. School makes me laugh and I really do wonder what I'm doing in class sometimes and if I'm even learning anything or is more about the experience of things that I'm actually learning. I know the knowledge that is getting passed along to us is valuable, but I always feel like whatever I learn in school I don't really want to know, I'd rather choose my own curriculum. That would be nice.

That's all for tonight.
