Hey guys! I AM KETA and I’m incredibly lucky. Why am I incredibly lucky? Because football is my favorite thing to talk about besides Ginnifer Goodwin (who is unfortunately not one of my favorite things to talk about anymore so this is a lie and I’m a liar) and there has been so much football to talk about lately, especially being here at BAYLOR, which is home of the best football team in Texas the nation the GALAXY. Well they are actually tied with the San Francisco 49ers for that title. In fact, I’ve done a lot of thinking about the perfect football team. I would combine Baylor’s offense with the defense of the 49ers (SPECIFICALLY THE PASS RUSH because Baylor’s defense against the pass makes me queasy sometimes) and then the perfect football team would be created by Niketa Shava Henderson just like the power puff girls were created by professor Utonium. This team would strike fear into the hearts of Gary Pattersons everywhere (lowkey Baylor already does though real talk lowkey). Speaking of Gary Patterson it would be RIDCULOUS OF ME NOT TO MENTION THE FACT THAT BAYLOR BEAT TCU. That is all for today’s generic football talk. See you tomorrow for the next one. In honor of football I’ve decided to leave you here with this collage of Hannah and me at football game throughout the year! Who’s got it better than us? NOBODY (that is a 49ers saying) so SIC ‘EM.
We just had Homecoming and let me tell you I am exhausted! And Homecoming weekend also means Pigskin. There was a performance Thursday night, two on Friday, and one on Saturday. I worked the Friday night show and was able to take a break part way through to go say hi to some of our alumni that showed up. :) While talking with Tara O’Shields I got to see her new little baby boy Brodie and let me tell you he is soooo cute! And I think he already has as much Baylor clothes as I do.
I didn’t make it home that night until 12:30 and then we had the parade the next morning, which I had to start helping out with at 6:00 am! It was way to early. But the parade went great and after it was over we had a chance to relax for a while and I chose this time to take a nap in my Tuba case. If you haven’t tried this before it is amazing! Several people took selfies with me during my little nap too. Here’s one from Henry, the current Beta Alpha president and fellow tuba player.
And then the day continued!! We had practice and then headed over to the Stadium where the rest of the band did the Bear Walk for the football players (which used to be called March of the Bears) and TBS and KKPsi got everything set up for the game. YAY service!
I might have taken another nap when we got back to Allison Indoor before the food came. I was exhausted!
Then it was almost GAME TIME! We marched over to McLane and rocked the pre game show, supported the Bears, played our halftime show, supported the Bears some more, had our post-game show and marched all the way back to Allison.
After we cleaned up and got all of the uniforms put away and the Penskie loaded we were done! I was then able to go eat dinner with Sara Bitting and Zach who were in town for the game. I miss her soooo much so catching up and getting to see her again was great! Hannah and another flute player rushie came with us too and I don’t think we ever had a quiet moment the entire time. But then Sara had to leave :( I went home, went straight to bed and I am still recovering from this weekend.
Homecoming is crazy! And getting to see alumni sisters and be part of the oldest Homecoming parade is pretty freaking special. But I’m glad its only once a year. :)
Lori here to tell you how our semester is going in the world of rush events! We started the semester by going to Bahama Bucks for the annual snow cone rush event! There are several members who a have a slightttt obsession with that place (me being one of them) so of course, that’s the best place to go!
We also had a game night rush event, where we played taboo, clue, and quelf all at once, in different groups of course. I forgot how entertaining board games are! On Tuesday, we had the joint Halloween rush event which was super fantastic as always!(: Shout out to our awesome Beau and Kappa Kappa Psi VP(the ninja) for being a great partner-in-crime for planning that one. We played Halloween themed mafia which was hilarious since we had such a big group playing.
Since this weekend is homecoming, we all hope to see you at the KKPsi/TBSigma alumni mixer! Homecoming also means PIGSKIN. I am the Concessions manager for Tau Beta Sigma as well, so that meant on Tuesday I got to go buy the candy at Sams. Well, an entire pallet cart filled with stuff later, it is safe and sound in the Candy closet(: I always like seeing the weird looks other customers give me… Yes this tiny girl is going to eat this candy all by herself(;
HEY HEY HEY!!!!! My name is Megan Land(Nutmeg), and I am from ’14 Spice Girls! So… this past football game was crazy and an emotional roller coaster for me, but our bears did it once again by beating TCU 61-58!!!! WOOOOO!!! SIC ‘EM!!! I am also a part of one of the biggest sections in BUGWB known as BONESQUAD! We have nearly 40 trombones this year! Not to mention that there is about 9(chicka chickaw!) girls in Bonesquad as well!
Here we are:
Here is Eugenie(my roommate/ sis-tau who is also in Bonesquad)
Also, here is a pic of my Big Sister Kristyn and I!
Also, I am soooo excited that it’s the month of October! I kind of have an idea of what I want to be for Halloween, but here is a picture of what I was last year!
That’s all folks!
Hey hey, it’s Marina aka Paprika! This is my first blog post so I’m pretty excited! Everything here at Baylor is going great, the second rush of tests has come around. Hopefully we will defeat them like how we destroyed TCU last night WOO! SIC ‘EM BEARS! Speaking of the game below are some pictures!
Me and my big ELAINE!
Next weekend is fall break and my mom is coming to town from Oregon! Hopefully I’ll get to introduce her to some of my sisters!
HEY Y’ALL!! My name is Julianne Six and I am so excited to be a SENIOR this year! I have two of the most incredible littles ever! Their names are Zach Jones...
...and Katie Aquilone (she’s the one in the hat……oh wait, she’s the one on the left!)
I love them both so much! I’m so blessed to have them in my life, and to share my last year with them and the rest of my lovely, always photogenic sisters here in Iota! Keep on keepin' on!
Hey guys :) my name is Kristyn and I’m currently the Iota President! YAY! Lots of exciting things have been happening to me lately (like, oh, I dunno, being elected President) and I figured I might as well share them on the blog! Warning: I like pictures :)
Over the summer, my super awesome, amazing, British grandmother decided to take me to South Africa to show me where she grew up! It was probably the most amazing two weeks of my life, and I would do anything to go back. We went to many different places in South Africa-Johannesburg, Pretoria (the capital), Durban, a National Park where we went on multiple game drives, Umhlanga, Umhloti, Cape Town and more! So, here are some pictures!
Because this picture is fitting and we all know why.
Okay! So that was South Africa. It was awesome, and I really hope I can make it back one day.
In other news, many of you know I got a puppy in the Spring! His name is Maximus and he is a dachschund. I love him with all of my heart and he is the best little weenie ever. Enjoy some pictures of his cuteness :)
And cue some other random pictures because you were warned.
And I’ll just casually leave off here with this piece of magic.
Hi, my name is Jessica Hadish and I am so excited to be spending my last semester at Baylor with the Golden Wave Band! I am a member of the Color Guard and we are 20 strong this year which is huge for us. I have been so blessed to be a part of Tau Beta Sigma and had the opportunity to meet these beautiful souls. Here are some snippets from the past few games since football has taken over our lives these past few weeks.
Picture 1: Me and some of my wonderful sisters doing service after pre-game! Obviously the team did something amazing!
Picture 2: Here is the beautiful color guard and the wonderful alumni members who came to spin with us!
Hey everyone, it’s Nicky!
Since the semester has just started I hope I can get away with telling you a little bit about my summer as well! After watching my little brother Josh graduate from high school (HE’S AT BAYLOR NOW, TOO) I headed back to Waco to meet up with some fellow geology majors for field camp 2014. Baylor field camp is a five and a half week course (I got REALLY good at putting up/taking down my tent) where students learn how to make geologic maps and stratigraphic sections and everything we’d previously learned in our other classes was put to the test. The professors and graduate students leading us also taught us some handy dandy tricks to use when working in the field. Even though it was a class so we were turning in assignments and being tested on what we learned, I had a lot of fun seeing some really cool, beautiful geology and learning about the geologic history of our country.
Here are just a few pictures from our trip this summer:
Five and a half weeks, nine (chicka chickaw!) states, and countless campfires later I returned to Waco in the same lovely (but much smellier) Baylor Geology van I left in with new friends and memories I’ll always cherish. I’m so thankful for the experience. Touring the country looking at rocks with my friends? A dream come true! Now back to the reality of classes, my honors thesis, and finishing my posters for the Geological Society of America meeting in Vancouver this October. More gneiss adventures coming soon—it’s my senior year so I’ll take nothing for granite! ;) ;)
This is Katie(aka Jupiter...or is it Juniper). Summer is now over, and it is once again school time. I am really excited about this semester as classes get started up again about what will be learned, and the opportunities I will be presented with. This past week was preseason week for band and it was a lot of fun. At the end of the week we got to go to the new McLean stadium for Noche Del Oso. Its so nice and we get to sit behind the end zone. During the rehearsal Marina finally got me back for pouring water on her during our MEP, but in all honesty it was really refreshing.
Although the semester has just started things are going on. We had our first rush event at Bahama Bucks (YAY snow cones), and the homework has started to pile up but it is nothing we can't handle. We have our first football game on Sunday in the new stadium and I could not be more excited about it!! Its going to be a lot of work this semester but it will be well worth it!
My big Jules also just had a birthday!! She is now the same age as her little (love you Jules)!
I can't wait for what this semester has in store for me and my sisters.
