The Return of the Reshalls!

Is The Force with Us? The Battle of a Lifetime Written By: Matt Hurt

This year’s GDI week promises to be one of the best. I do not know about all of you, but when I first saw the great pandemic that was humans v zombies I noticed something of great importance. People had bought a lot of Nerf guns. And the thing that I thought was interesting is this, “exactly how often do college kids get to play with Nerf guns?” The answer is not as often as we ought to. I also guessed that at a certain point people would start to put activities together to utilize this vast quantity of resources. We now have that activity. The Star Wars B a t t l e f ro n t c o n t e s t o n t h e

Thursday of GDI week promises to be an battle of epic proportions. This intense contest will pit the various residence living groups against one another in a heroic contest. Veterans from humans v zombies still have their trigger fingers fresh and I know that I am not the only one looking forward to the chaos that will ensue that fabled day. So gather up your arms and fight, fight for the honor of the residence halls, and because when will you honestly get the next chance to have an epic Star Wars themed Nerf gun fight?

The Social Scene with Jose Written By: Jose

Show up to classes, do your homework, do well on your exams. These are the things that help you stay in college and earn your degree.  Ten years from now, what do you think you will remember?  Will you reminisce about finishing that homework assignment?  Look through pictures of your exams?  Revisit old powerpoints?  Think about what you want out of this experience.  This is the only time in your life that it will be this easy to meet new people, try new things, create big experiences.  That’s right CREATE big experiences.  Many people sit back and wait for someone else to make the effort.  Stop waiting for someone else to invite you to go somewhere.  Get out and meet some new people.  Meet them at Bob’s, meet them at the bike racks, meet them at the mailboxes.  It doesn’t matter where you go, smile and strike up a conversation.  Will everyone respond? 

No. That should not stop you.  There are over 10,000 students on campus.  I will bet that at least 10 percent of people will be nice, smile back, and even have a conversation.  That’s more than 1,000 people!!!  What’s that you say?  You are not good at meeting people?  You are kind of shy?  Start with a smile and some eye contact.  Look people in the eye and smile.  I do it all day every day and get lots of smiles.  Sometimes they even say hi.  So what are you waiting for?  Get out of your comfort zone and go meet some people.  Before you know, you will be creating big experiences.

One who does not welcome guests at home will meet very few hosts when he goes out. - Chinese proverb.

Cut Off T-Shirts? Good or Bad? Written By: Matt Hurt

I think in these trying times people have been liable to forget some of the true menaces of our world. Sure there are problems with hunger and disease, war and poverty throughout the world, but I am talking about issues closer to home. That’s right folks; the scourge of cut-off tshirts. I try to go to the gym a couple times a week, and no matter what time of day or what it is every other guy there will be wearing a cut-off t-shirt. And I don’t just mean with the sleeves off, I mean shirts that barely qualify as shirts. Don’t get me wrong, I am super proud of your side-abs too, I can tell you have been giving a 110% every day at the gym and if you keep up what you are doing for another five years you might be proud enough to take the whole thing off – good for you! And you know

what? Your pectorals look way better when I can see roughly 40% of them – all the time. And I know there is the old saying “you can always look away” but here’s the thing. When everyone and their mom is doing something it is kind of hard to not catch a glimpse out of your eye. Maybe you are afraid of getting your regular t-shirts all sweaty? Maybe you don’t have any clean clothes left? Maybe the communists did it? Honestly I do not know. But I am pretty sure some of you out there who do it like it. And that is just wrong. You can wear a regular old ratty t-shirt that actually covers up your body at the gym and it does not get in the way. Try it, you might even like it better. And remember every time you wear one of those out in public a kitten gets run over, and that is just messed up.

Votary - One who is devoted, given, or addicted to some particular pursuit, subject, study, or way of life.
