Tennis Club, Anyone?

Hey there fellow Hawks. Alright, so let’s dive right in. The main highlight of the week was the School House Rock Dance, sponsored by the Intercultural Student Services. The dance was a blast and I had so much fun watching all the cultures come together on the dance floor with the live band. I loved all the songs they played even though I wasn’t born in the 50’s, which is what I think they were playing.eric

I love going to events like The School House Rock Dance, because they help take my mind of all the readings and homework I have to do. All the stress I build up during the week I let loose at school events. Hopefully there’s at least one every week of the year. I’m going to need it. This week I also went to the Student Life Lounge to play a quick game of ping-pong with freshman, Amanda Woods. That game was so intense. Balls were flying everywhere. I’m pretty sure the people there were annoyed with our competitiveness. I suck at ping pong but it’s the only thing that’s as close to tennis at UHCL. This got me thinking afterwards that I should organize a tennis club. Who knew UHCL had tennis courts, because I didn’t until a couple days ago. I’ll let you guys know how that goes next week. I feel like now that UHCL is a four-year institution, we should start having some sports clubs at least. Maybe in the future they’ll turn in actual teams.

The Student Org Expo was another event that was going on during school this past week. There was so many organizations involving different cultures and so much diversity. “The university does an excellent job of allowing people to be comfortable with who they are and their unique nationality,” said Helen Nguyen, a fellow freshman.

I love being part opingpongf a university that embraces everyone’s culture. At the expo I also signed up to become a volunteer leader. I really want to be involved in the university. I went to most of the booths at the expo. They really know how to lure in people with all the treats and items they hand out. Hopefully next year there will be a tennis club, and I will be the founder. As a freshman, I have so many questions, but I don’t always ask because I feel that the question is too stupid. I’m starting to learn that if you have a question, ask it before something goes wrong. I’m not very good at math, so whenever I have a question I go to the Math Center. They’re very resourceful and help with any questions you may have. Has anyone else been feeling stressed? Well that’s college for you. I feel like when I graduate from UHCL I’m going to have a full head of gray hairs and a fat belly. Because when I study all I do is eat! Eat! Eat! Anyone else like that? I did try to burn some fat at the gym which I finally had a chance to go to. One of my fellow Hawkmates Samantha Ali (which is also a freshman) showed me where to sign up to use the gym. I was not expecting her to be a super human. She can lift, bro. She’s got super strength. I know who I’m calling for back up whenever I need it. I’ll be calling Super Sam. The Fitness Zone is a fun place to burn carbs (that way you can eat more). I was very sore the next day after going but it motivates me to get that body all the ladies want a man to have. This wraps up my second blog and I’ll see you next week again feel free to leave comments or suggestions.
