I just got back from volunteering with other BC students at the Vitae Foundation benefit dinner! It’s an annual pro-life event in Kansas City, and the largest that I’ve ever been to (excluding the March and Walk for Life). There were about 1,100 people who came. Incredible, huh? The foundation is responsible for lots of billboards, commercials, and other media advertisement for pro-life centers.
Dr. Ben Carson spoke. The name seemed familiar to me, but I couldn’t really remember who he was. Well, he is a neurosurgeon who came from a single-parent home and was teased for being the dummy in school. His mom only had a 3rd grade education. She expected a lot of him, and through that he became the first doctor to successfully separate siamese twins conjoined at the back of the head. I can’t do his story justice here, though, so go look him up!
The weather this week was crazy. It cooled down a bit, then was sticky-hot, then poured rain and stormed. Midwest storms are SO beautiful! Today it was gorgeous and sunny without being overly humid.
Classes are plugging along. Macroeconomics is still killing me (especially after getting the first test back). I had my first quantitative analysis test this morning, and it was easy. Hooray! Management is interesting along with developmental psych. Did you know that if unborn babies continued growing at the rate they do early in development, they would be over 200 pounds by birth? Ouch. Good thing they slow down the growing. I love how my psych professor uses video clips and interactive things to make it interesting and applicable to real life. I think if I worked really hard at it, I could be very good at accounting. It is rather logical and straightforward. And concert chorale? Epic. I’m going to have to arrange for someone to record it so I can share.
Babies are awesome.
Have you been hearing the big fuss over Pope Francis recently? I find it rather amusing that the media continues to report him as some progressive ruler who is changing “policies”. I have much more to say about his recent interviews, and will get that published soon. I’m interested to hear your thoughts.
Does any technologically savvy person out there know how to add gifs to blog posts? Or do you know of a good instructional website or article? This would be most appreciated!
