The Last Week or So....

So this week has been officially insane. There are two groups I'm really involved in on campus, Student Alumni Association and the Traditions Committee. Well both of these groups had our biggest activities of the year this week! For SAA it was A-Day (which is actually a week long) and for Traditions we had the Robins Awards and the Blue Carpet Ball. I was crazy busy and crazy stressed, but it was well worth it, it was so fun and everything went really well!

Street painting! Such fun :)

Best friends! We love SAA!

The beautiful Robins Awards!

Our fantastic committe

To add to the amazingness (yes, that's now a word) of the week, one of my lifelong dreams was fulfilled! Jon Schmidt came to perform at the Blue Carpet Ball. (no, that's not the dream, I'd seen him multiple times before) So Erin and I went in to our 'green room' for the night where our pizza and everything was. We're at the table and we look over in the corner and who's there? Jon Schmidt. That's right. He shared our green room, ate the cold pizza, and all that good stuff. So we sit down and he just starts talking! We sat, ate pizza and talked to Jon Schmidt for like 15 minutes! No joke those were probably some of the best 15 minutes of my life. We talked mostly about music and piano, but it was fantastic. If you don't realize the amazingness of this man, go here. This is his newest song, Taylor Swift's "Love Story" combined with Coldplay's "Viva La Vida." It's incredible! This man is the one who kept me playing the piano. I truly truly admire him and am so greatful for my experience Saturday night!


  1. Thanks for sharing the Jon Schmidt video, I hadn't seen that one yet. He is so awesome. What a fun opportunity for you to meet him and talk with him. I'll have to let Ambrielle watch it so she can be inspired to keep at the piano also. :)

  2. Great blog, FYI I am a friend of erins.
