Cheer- The Weather

The weather for the last two or three weeks has been something I could have never expected. It has been so nice outside, where it usually is a rainy and windy fall. I don’t know how my teachers expect me to get any work done when it’s 90 degrees and sunny outside. It makes not going to class and being a horrible student easier when it’s beautiful out and there’s tons of people hanging out outside.


Jeer- also the weather

There is also a horrible backside to this great weather– I am sweating my life away. I, like many others, were not prepared for it to stay this nice. I do not have enough tank tops and summer clothes for this. Also, my room and every single car I enter is a complete hotbox.  I hate sleeping in a hot room, like I really despise it. I would rather my room be 20 degrees and have my glass of water freeze, then wake up in the morning covered in sweat. I hate to complain about a good thing, but I yearn for the days when I can rock a sweatshirt and sweatpants.


Cheer- Le Moyne Rugby

Last week, the Koonduck Rugby Football Club(Le Moyne Rugby) played Fredonia’s rugby team right here at Le Moyne College and absolutely destroyed them. Right from the start of the game, the team dominated Fredonia and scored fast and in bunches. Jack Ball, a first year player, scored three tries (the equivalent of a touchdown) in the game and helped propel the team to victory. John Timothy and Owen McVeigh also had key plays to ensure the victory. The next home game for the team will be on Saturday October 14th. If you are interested in playing for the Men’s or Women’s team simply come down to a practice that are usually held daily at 5pm at the rugby field.


Jeer- Fall television.

Now that my favorite show Game of Thrones does not air for another two years and I have watched just about everything there is to watch on Netflix and Hulu. I am completely bored with television. I am in a show hole with no end in sight. I really need a good quality show to come out that I can watch in between football, Rick and Morty, and South Park. I refuse to watch that mistake of a show, The Big Bang Theory, and the thought about the new show starring Sheldon as a child gives me ulcers. If anyone knows of any good new t.v. show please, let me know.


Jeer- Chicken and rice

Is it me, or does the cafe only know how to make chicken and rice. I am a person who loves food, cooking and eating it– I’m all about it. So, I’m so sick of the dry wood-like chicken they serve on a seemingly daily basis with some bland ‘ol white rice. Listen, I know they work with what they have, but I mean if they served the good burgers and chicken nuggets all the time, people would complain a whole lot less.
