I can’t believe how rapidly the weather keeps changing! I have been so sick for the past couple of weeks, and the weather just won’t let me shake it. Last week, there were a couple of days that were like spring. All of the snow was gone, and it was around fifty degrees. Now, it’s back to being well below freezing with what appear to be multiple tornadoes made of snow.
Every time I complain, people always ask me, “why did you choose Oswego?” since Oswego is infamous for its relentless winters. Although choosing Oswego wasn’t exactly a “choice,” I do think that Oswego has its pros that contrast with its weatherly cons. For example, making friends is typically very easy here, since the campus is so diverse. A diverse campus increases the chance that you’re going to find a person, or better yet, a group of people, that are like you.
Oswego’s campus is also relatively accepting when it comes to differences amongst people, and it can’t be denied that that is highly beneficial to any campus setting. Besides, as far as the weather is concerned, there are also pros to that! When Oswego is not undergoing winter, it is amazingly beautiful. The lake, for example, under a setting sun in the summer time is unlike anything I have ever seen, and it’s a nice place to visit and reflect. I feel confident that I am just as happy here as I would be just about anywhere else.
Then, of course, there is the hockey team! Tonight, we play Plattsburgh, which means it’s White-Out, and of course, the weather saw it fit to correlate. A lot of students, including me, are really looking forward to this game. It will definitely be interesting! I realize now that this blog is a little scattered, but it is kind of just a collage of random thoughts thrown together.
