Back To School

It’s that time of year again. Fall classes are starting up and soon the new semester will be in full swing. I don’t know about you but I have been anxiously waiting to get out of my house and back to campus. What can I say, I like my freedom here. These past few weeks have been pretty interesting from partying it up in Bar Harbor to picking out nice new Nikes while back to school shopping. I have even been getting some interesting emails about the blog with has gotten me very excited because it shows that people actually read this and that I’m not completely insane. I got one email asking me to give some free advertising for a local company. I was unsure at first but after checking out there product and learning that some employees attend UNH I decided to go along with it.

To the people at Slouchback here is your shout out. Their products are designed for dorm rooms and one is basically an inflatable top half of a couch that you can put on your doom room bed to make it double as a couch. I thought it is a pretty cool idea.

I have also gathered some tips, through my own knowledge and some helpful emails. When buying textbooks be sure to check out or before venturing to the MUB or to the DBE, you can usually find books for much cheaper prices online.

I know I wrote about this before but can be an easy way to make a few bucks or gain some important knowledge for school. Check out my feature article about them if you missed it here.

I also have some news about the blog in general. Thanks to my 12-year-old cousin and his knowledge of technology I have learned how to Bluetooth pictures from my phone to my laptop and I’m hoping that this ability will lead to many funny pictures of our beloved campus throughout the year. This could help me with my “picture of the day/week” posts, which I stopped after only 2 entries when first starting the blog.

After reviewing the current tally in the latest poll it appears that many of you wish me to drink a lot and post. And if that’s what you want then my liver will have to take one for the team. I also have a small project in the works that I never got around to last year that I’m hoping to finish sometime in the near or distant future. It also looks as if you want me to write more advice and opinion pieces and seeing as this is a blog that is already what I do during the year so keep coming back because I try to post daily (at least 5 times a week) during the semester.

Getcha popcorn ready because this is a new year at the University of Nonsensical Happenings. This years first song of the day is "Lawyers, Guns and Money" by one of my all-time favorite musicians Warren Zevon.

Stay classy, not UMassy.
