So, you're probably wondering how life at an all-girls school like Judson located in a tiny town like Marion could be anything but boring..Think again. The local politics and goings on are pretty interesting, as are random things at Judson. Take this Monday for instance. I was on my way home from Statistics class to grab a quick lunch, and what should I get stuck behind but a parade for Obama Day. It was pretty impressive. Not only were there a ton of different marching bands, but there were also horses, police cars, buses, and pretty much whatever else could be thrown in the street. The parade was apparently supposed to start at 10am, but obviously was quite late. That's small towns for you..
Even life within the confines of Judson can be quite busy. Monday afternoon after class, my jogging buddy and I went just over 4 miles without stopping. We cut around town and used the marked road next to MMI so we could get a better distance estimate. After that, I made a quick trip home to change into dance clothes, worked a quick math study session, then on to swing dance practice..Loads of fun! Practice was quite productive. The group of swing dancers is really just a remnant of the tango group with a few additions. We all enjoyed getting together for the Tami tango performance last month and decided to get down what other ballroom dances we could learn from each other, the Internet, and YouTube. We've already tackled basic East Coast swing, the turns, a few throws, and a lot of the flips. Hopefully we can get something together for Dr. Betty's next Broadway Gala or some other upcoming event. The weekly SGA meeting followed and then I worked a little bit on my quail project. Monday went as days usually go. I didn't make it home for the evening until after 10:00 pm.
