The Roger statue wishes everyone good luck during midterms.

Hey Hawks!

It has been a little while since I last wrote to you. It takes a while to get someone’s attention and then have them write down my thoughts since, you know, statue hands. It has been a great semester for me, my homework has not been too bad and I am really enjoying my major. Ah, I am just kidding, I already graduated…394 years ago. I am sure our curriculums were the same, right?

I was really into languages during my time. At one point I was familiar with Latin, Hebrew, Greek, French and Dutch and I ended up learning the languages of the Native Americans. I even wrote a book describing the Native American languages in New England. It has been a while since I studied any of those languages, so I am probably a little rusty at this point.

It is hard to believe we are almost to the halfway point of the semester. I suppose time flies when you are stuck to a rock. As midterms start to stress you out, just remember to take breaks once in a while. Take a walk on the shell path or visit the Global Cafe in GHH. I have seen a lot of pumpkin spice lattes pass by D’Angelo Commons and I will not lie, I am a little jealous. I want to try one, just to see what the big hype is but alas, I am bound to this rock and my mouth does not open… sigh.

Sorry, I got sidetracked. What was I talking about? Oh, right! Midterms! How can you not be excited for them? Oh, well, even if you are not excited, I know you will do great, you are Hawks after all. Just do your best, that is all you can ask of yourself. It is okay to have a bad day or two. Do you think I aced every single test I took? Heck no, but look where I am now. You could be just like me, stuck to a rock. Okay, maybe that is not the best goal to have but I can assure you that you will still succeed even with a couple of bad days.

Until next time,
Roger
