CIAO! It’s Niketa aka Flik from the Mouseketeers. It should be known that I am super tired. Why am I super tired? Well when I first started at Baylor and I was a tiny wittle freshman, I was a psychology major.
For some reason, I thought that would work out. NEWS FLASH…. It SUCKED. Turns out, you should have some sort of affinity for people in the field of psychology so like yeah. So then I was all like, “I love GOD, I SHOULD BE A RELIGION MAJOR, but then I took Interpreting the Old Testament, that was cool depressing. I didn’t know that a class about God could come straight from hell. After floating around in Limbo, better known as being unmotivated undecided, I decided that I AM GOOD AT TALKIN’ , LET ME BE A COMMUNICATIONS MAJOR. Comm Studies and I are lowkey a match made in heaven [lowkey insert heart-eyes emoji]. Unfortunately, all my flip-floppin, frog-hoppin between majors has left me in quite the predicament because I have a lot of ground to make up, so for the time in forever (NOTHING’S IN MY WAYYYYYY), I am taking 18 whole hours. I also have one whole job, and one whole band enrollment, and that my friends is why I am super tired.
Fortunately for me, I have a really awesome new roommate who walks on my back sometimes when she doesn’t thing she is going to break it. I also have the greatest sisters in the world who all make sure that I balance all of my really sad work with really happy fun. I also got my eyebrows done, that doesn’t really go with the rest of this blog post, but yes. I LOVE GINNIFER GOODWIN. My teacher said I don’t do conclusions too good. Bye.
Hey :D This is Marina aka Paprika from the Spice Girls (SP 2014)! A lot of new exciting things are going on in my life right now! The past weekend we had our first home game against Lamar. Baylor won 66 to 31!
Here is a picture of Alina and me during the game! <3
One of my favorite things at games is at the end when we play That Good Old Baylor Line while the Football team sings along. Its memories like these that I will take with me wherever I may roam…
Some other new things in my life are that I’m living with Katie! (Juniper from SP 2014) It’s one of the best things about this year- living with my best friend. ALSO when you walk out our backdoor you can see Edge Field where we have practice for band which is very convenient. She likes to make fries and wings a lot, which is my favorite part! <3
During Preseason for band we had a min-con together. Min-con is where vets from band introduce a group of freshman to Waco. We took them to local restaurants and taught them all the essentials of the Golden Wave Band!
Here is a picture of our Min-Con, or what they liked to call it “Chill-Con” at lunch one day!
ALSO! The most exciting news is that my parents moved to KELLER TEXAS! If you don’t already know I’m from Alaska so this is a big change! I’m really excited that they’re closer now and will be able to come see us perform at games!
Here is a picture of their new house!
Heyyyy there! My name is Megan, and I am really excited for this Fall semester! I love my classes, and I am excited for the fun times that lie ahead with my sisters! I cannot wait until the SMU game this Friday that will kickstart football season! It’s going to be great! This past week has been hectic with school starting, but I am still enjoying my time heere at Baylor. I cannot believe that I am a Junior this year! That means that I am half way through my college career! CRAZYYYYYYY! Anyway, here is a picture of all the girls in Bonesquad!
Until next time!
Hey y’all, my name is Eugenie Schieve, and I’m a junior environmental studies major! I crossed in 2013 with the Spice Girls, and I’m also a member of BONESQUAD. Preseason was the best preseason yet! Things have running smoothly this year as we prepare for our first home game against Lamar on September 12th. TBS and KKPsi have been hard at work introducing new traditions that will hopefully continue for years to come! On Tuesday morning, we greeted the band with breakfast tacos from none other than FUEGO! We even started a photo contest for the band. The results were spectacular!
On Saturday, we had Noche! This was our second Noche at McLane Stadium, and it was just as fun (but still super hot)! The directors were able to give us a nice long break, and we had the pleasure of touring the Baylor locker room, while we cooled off! I even got to show off my awesome guns inside the locker room! Clearly service has its rewards :)
Now that I’m an upperclassmen, I'm seeing the vast amount of work that is required for the band to function and succeed. I’m so thankful that TBS and leadership allow me to play a greater role than ever before in the band. I will never forget the memories I have made with my brothers, sisters, and friends.
The week continued with even more workshops, and some really late nights, also some sidesplitting laughs, and heart-warming moments. Come Thursday I was had the privilege to go to champs with Heather and some good friends from the Southwest district and play a couple wicked games of miniature golf, and laser tag (of which I failed miserably at, but had loads of fun). We didn’t keep score, but I did get one hole-in-one so I count that as a win!
Next in line came elections! Whew those were quite an experience! The southwest district had a very informational and productive caucus into the wee hours of the night, followed by an early morning of elections and committee reports. Which was exciting because Iota got into the national minutes as the second for the acceptance of the national constitution! We then an intense election of officers, where I was able to see our dear district councilor Erika Pope elected and installed as National Vice President for Communication and Recognition. This was so special for the entire southwest district and it was so cool to be there while it happened.
The dance was then so much fun! I really enjoyed spending time with my southwest district friends, and I was even taught some steppin moves!
Overall it was an awesome experience and I value it so much! I huge shout out to Heather for making this possible! I love being a member of Tau Beta Sigma, and I am so excited to start out the year at Baylor with my sisters! And hopefully take all of them with me to Orlando, Florida National Convention 2017!!!
