Just got back from Texas.. I saw my first roach in the airport on the way back and it was the most disgusting thing ever. I'm not good with bugs...

Aside from that, I cannot believe how big Tech's campus is. After seeing Lubbock, I'm really glad I only have to be there for 3 years. I think I'm more of a big city kind of person. I have an apartment though! Amanda and I will be in Hunter's Way. And she even brought me a "Don't Mess With Texas bumper sticker."  :)

And more updates on my attempt to Texify myself- I had chicken fried steak. It was... interesting. I also saw tumbleweeds alongside one road. Even though you guys told me they're real, I honestly didn't believe you. Haha. I think I could also get used to the weather. It was 100 or 101 on Friday and that was more comfortable than the 90 degree/ridiculously humid and hazy day I came home to.

...and people will try and tell you that Lubbock is a big city...

The heat is bearable in Lubbock, but the closer to the coast you get, the more humid it is. (duh)  I went camping this past week in Paris, Texas and it was 106 in the shade...luckily it wasn't THAT humid.

And you can laugh at me all you want when we hit winter in Lubbock.  I'm sure I'll be bundled up from head to toe and freezing still.

I'm going to run for SBA president on the platform of getting lockers. I don't know where they'd put them that wouldn't be in violation of the fire code or ADA, but I'll lobby for them nonetheless.

All the cool schools get lockers. Don't we want to be a cool school? Do we want others to sneer and say, "Oh, Tech, that school without lockers" as they take that $2,000 scholarship to Texas Wesleyan?

I say an emphatic, "NO!"

We are the students of Texas Tech University School of Law and we deserve, nay, demand, lockers. A car trunk is no place for book storage, as any serious archivist will tell you. We, as lockerless students, are forced to choose among the unsavory options of storing our books in our inhospitable cars, in our carrel where they are susceptible to thievery at the hands of unscrupulous competitors, or on our backs.

We may have one of the best bar passage rates in the state, but what good is being licensed to practice law if we are physically unable to carry out our lawyerly duties because of severe spinal compression from three years of toting casebooks on our backs that leaves us with poor posture and a tingling sensation in our extremities?

That we have gone so long without lockers is a travesty, and to go any longer would be a farce.

Stand up, people of TTUSoL, stand up! Rise against those who would make you carry your books or leave them susceptible to theft or corrosion!

We have lived without lockers long enough, and let it be known that we will not tolerate it any longer!

HERE HERE!!!!!!!  you got my vote!

I'm sure most of yall don't care, but... I met Gene Stallings!!  He's played football for the Aggies, went on to coach the Ags, 'Bama, and the Dallas Cowboys!  What a great and classy guy! 

My dad was joking with him that I would turn into a Raider and Coach Stallings replied with the utmost seriousness and a wink saying, "Oh, she'll never be a raider."  I just thought it was kinda funny.  We talked about A&M and his days playing for the Ags.  I was really impressed with him.

/attempt to liven up the thread on a dull day.

I'm leaving tomorrow for ISRAEL for 10 days...woohoo!!!  I'm very excited!

That is SO awesome!  Be safe though.  I am very jealous.  The Holy Land is a place that I really want to visit.

Would yall suggest a regular backpack that can hold a laptop, or getting a shoulder bag or what???

Wearing a "Saw 'em off" shirt or putting a decal on my car is a wee bit different than ripping a bumper sticker off of someone else's car in protest of their views.  To me, "saw em off," and other expressions like it, is a statement of a view, and does not deface anything or insult someone personally.  I guess you could disagree as to whether "saw em off" is insulting, but since it is in the realm of collegiate sports, I think those type of expressions are expected.

By the way....I got HECKLED this morning (coming out of Starbucks) for having a "W" sticker on the back of my car.  Now, I might understand if we were close to an election, but come on dude, I'm just trying to get my sugar-free-vanilla breve latte and get to work, give me a freaking BREAK! 

I can't wait to get back to Lubbock.

I didn't know you worked in Austin...

Haha!  Can you believe this happened in Dallas!?  I live near Cedar Springs and Oak Lawn, which explains a lot.  I absolutley LOVE to go in that Starbucks, or the Whole Foods, wearing my black "W" baseball hat.  Greatness. 

OH!  I DID have my Bush/Cheney 2000 bumper sticker ripped off my car in Plano once....THAT was hard to believe.

LOL!  That is unbelievable!  I don't care what side of the fence someone's on, I'm never going to deface property to express my opinion. 

Sheesh.  There's a right and a wrong way to disagree...

Chris - Yes, I would get on the waiting list for the law school lot (r21).  It can't hurt, although you probably won't get called.

As for the computer, I ordered the D620 and I like it.  I just received it yesterday! Granted, I've only loaded MS Office, and iTunes on it, but I like it a lot.  Its very portable, has 4 USB connections...

You can modify whatever you want on it, pretty much.  I got 1 GB of RAM and a 40 GB harddrive...

I'm also curious as to the cost of books...I really don't want to ask my parents for money, but I may have to.

More football talk:   :D ;D

I have high hopes for Baylor!  I hope they can turn into a contender and make the Battle on the Brazos a real battle (not that it hasn't been lately...).  I think it would also speak volumes for the talent in Texas to supply UT, A&M, Tech, and Baylor with quality players.  Morris has really turned it around there!!!  They had their first road win in the Big 12 last year against Iowa State (who we lost to).

And I fully and wholeheartly agree that the "Gig'em horns!" t-shirts were ridiculious.  I will support the 'sips when they go for Bowl play and stuff like that, but only grudgingly and only b/c half my family went to tu (hell, I almost went there!  But I'd be a pot smokin, pinko, liberal, commie if I did!   ;)  j/k)  There's a "bring back the hate" movement at A&M, but I don't think the 'hate' will return until we turn our football team around.  Our offense should be something to behold, I hope.  The combo of McGee, Lane, and Bennett looks promising.  Our receiving corp is healthy and returning!!!  Our D on the other hand...I think our secondary was ranked close to last, if not last in the league.  The only way to go is up...I hope.  Our D is my biggest concern.  We can't win against Tech, UT (even though they will have an unproven QB), or other 'standard' games unless our D improves.  We dont have the "Wreckin' Crew" anymore.

Tech's football is fun to watch.  Its not a run up the middle, mudslingin' beat the crap out of 'em offense.  Its fast, its throwing, its exciting (that will be the only time yall hear me say that).  But I don't think Leach has turned out any "reputable" QBs.  I am completely unqualified in saying this, so if you disagree chalk it up to Aggie ignorance, but it seems to me that the Tech offense just chews up and spits out QBs.  Kingsbury is a 3rd or 4th string QB somewhere, BJ whats-his-name isn't anywhere, the one after him....???  And Cody?  They are all good QBs.  Great arms great talent, but I don't think they can hack it in the NFL.

As for A&Ms past QB, Reggie McNeal...I think that was talent wasted too.

More than anything though, I just wanna beat the hell outta tu and bask in the glory of my brothers FINALLY having to wear maroon on Christmas Day...I"m sick and tired of burnt orange on me... :-\

And I also can't wait to get my section #.

Krud, I find very little to argue with in that post...unfortunately. 

Aggy, which was once a proud program, is now duking it out for the Alamo Bowl with the likes of Sand Aggy and Colorado, and even KU, Iowa State and Okie State.
*sigh*  So true...and so sad...

Aggy sports "Cut 'Em Off" stickers, featuring a Sand Aggy gun with its thumb cut off
I've never seen this...intriguing.

-- because it is a battle that determines who is merely mediocre
Ouch!  The cold hard truth hurts...


What is the state of college football in Texas coming to?  Sadly, I don't see a glorious new dawn in Aggie football...there will be bright spots, I hope, but our hire for DC doesn't give me much to hope for.

I am hyped for some Red Raider football. Now that Aggy can't hang with the big boys Texas and OU, Tech finally has a real rival.

please....Tech will never be considered in the same ranks as UT, OU, and A& matter how bad A&M sucks and how good Tech is.  A&M will always be mentioned before Tech, don't ask me why, thats just the way of Big 12 South football.  Tech has a "little man" complex because of this.

I will agree that Tech fans are the rowdiest in the Big 12...but that type of rowdy isn't always a good thing.  Throwing batteries, cokes, and goalposts at visiting fans isn't exactly a fun atmosphere for those on the receiving end.
