Game Night

Game Night

While many students might be spending their Friday night doing other things, me and my group of brothers decided last night would be spent better just relaxing and playing some board games.

Of course no game night is complete without Risk… I’m not allowed to play with them anymore, I am 20-0-2 (one of my brothers flipped the board and another decided a tidal wave destroyed Africa and Australia) in college.

The other game we love is Settlers of Catan. A game that is a bit more fair for everyone, I am only 6-2.

The Buzzer Does Not Favor Loyola

The Buzzer Does Not Favor Loyola

Since 2009, I have never seen Loyola win at the buzzer. But I have seen many close games. However I have never seen anything as heartbreaking as what the men from the Loyola Basketball team had to face this year.

Not one or even two buzzer beater losses but eight. And of the rest of the losses 5 more were lost in the last 2 minutes of the game.

I look forward to the future and hope that this was due to a very young team being that they are the 3rd youngest in the NCAA.

The future is bright. Onward to Victory LOYOLA U!

World of Color

World of Color

Disneyland in itself is a special experience, but Disney’s show, “World of Color” is among the best I have ever seen. There is truly no way to explain the chills that you feel when the show starts.

Screens of water display the best moments of your favorite Disney movies while water canons send columns of water as high as fifty feet. Lasers streak across the lake which is covered in fog and the park is lit up in beautiful colors.

The show is truly one of a kind! Imagine the fountains of Billagio being combined with color and the best of Disney.

A masterpiece is created! Disney’s World of Color

Timothy Doolin’s Day Off

Timothy Doolin’s Day Off

Today I was given a class assignment to go to a museum and write about a sculpture in one of the exhibits. And upon seeing this interesting item, I could not resit posting about it.

I missed my classes to go to the art institute (which is free to Loyola Students) I was going to see it all not just some weird horse head cup and leave. No, I wanted to check out what the rest of the museum had to offer.

First was the modern wing…

Call me simple minded but I’m sorry this is a canvas with scribbles on it. But this is infinitely better than the next one we saw.

I get it! Technology will all loose connection some day and we will need to respect art.

And my personal favorite.

Seriously? I wish I knew this is all it took to get into the Art Institute.

We didn’t only stay in the modern wing, we ventured to see some classic paintings like the one below.

While the new Picasso exhibit was quite awesome, this is one of my favorites. The American Gothic and the surrealism section is always a great stop to add smiles before heading to see all the blood and guts that was the Renaissance. While beautiful, these artworks are quite gruesome.

Finally we ended with the most famous works in the museum. The Monet’s and pointillism that will always remind me of that scene from Ferris Bullers day off.

 

 

 

Its Just a Game Right?

Its Just a Game Right?

It has been a while since I last blogged and I would like to explain a bit about the reason.

It is actually quite simple, I am way too competitive and have taken up playing intramural basketball!

New train cars have been added to the CTA. While this may just seem minute to most people I was quite thrilled to see the change.

Coming from Southern California I came to Chicago with very little previous knowledge of how public transportation works. I was much more acquainted with the traffic jammed free ways of LA and Orange County. To put it simply LA’s public transportation is horrible. But I’ve found Chicago’s public┬átransportation system easy to navigate and generally, awesome. It’s so nice to know I’ve got Chicago at my finger tips.

Hockey is Back

Hockey is Back


It is that time of the year! HOCKEY SEASON! Unfortunately it took much longer than it should have to get here, but hockey is back. Better yet, the Hawks started the season off in the best way possible… undefeated.

One of the best things about Loyola is is our proximity to downtown Chicago! It’s fairly easy to head to the United center to catch a game.

I am looking forward to a great season LETS GO HAWKS!!!

Onward To Victory LOYOLA U

Onward To Victory LOYOLA U

Loyola Basketball is almost wear they should be! While people have made jokes about the team’s performance for years, the team is about to turn a corner.

After a Victory against the DePaul Blue Demons the Ramblers are looking good.

They have the potential to take it to the next level. Personally, I think within the next 3 years you will be seeing them in the NCAA tournament. As the ramblers will only be loosing two players from the roster this year.

Coach Porter Moser is leading this young team in the right direction with players like Devon Turk who is averaging 10 points per game as a Freshman.

I look forward to the future!

I forgot to mention, I am in charge of the student section so please join me in supporting the ramblers as they literally win our hearts.
