 OU, Oh Yeah! 

Submitted by Björn Deh on Mon, 02/21/2011 - 10:00

The end of our first quarter here at Ohio University is almost around the corner, and everybody starts to make their plans for the one week they have off from school: the infamous spring break. It seems as if the most popular places this year are Miami, Panama City Beach, and Las Vegas. Spring break is the time when college students are trying to drown all the accumulated knowledge of the past year within seven days. And if you have seen spring break parties from up close, it seems as if most of the students manage to do so; and since OU is the number two party school in the nation you can bet that a lot of students will keep that tradition up.(I would usually link videos here but I would have to tag them as NSFW)

My plans for spring break are a little more 'conservative.' I booked my flight home to Germany about a month ago to visit my own family who I've been missing badly the last couple of weeks. I'm really excited to see how Mini-Me has grown and how he has started to smile and 'talk.' He has already been introduced to Skype and actually managed to end our conversation by pushing remote buttons on the keyboard. I know it's just random movements, but it looks very controlled through the eyes of a proud dad!

What else is new? My college volleyball ambitions came literally to a screeching halt: I had a bike accident! Well...I wasn't actually riding the bike; I was cleaning it. I wasn't paying attention, and the next thing I remember is me stopping the back wheel by putting my index finger in between chain and gears. When I say "screeching halt" I mean the noise that I made. So I took my first trip to the Universities Health Center and really appreciated that we have to have health insurance for our stay here in Athens. I have my next appointment in two weeks, and they will see if they have to remove my finger nail. Let's just hope they don't. Good thing though that I was still able to watch sports on TV. (switching the channels was the only problem) The NBA Allstar weekend just came to an end, and everybody that knows me also knows that I'm a huge basketball fan. (some call it 'nerd,' some call it 'freak') So just to keep up the spirit of the weekend, I conclude with the following words: The game is over!

PS. If any of the students for next year are still looking for a room, just contact me. There were a few people I know who would like to sublease their room for at least one quarter.
