Last Saturday I attended the bedlam basketball game where OU had an easy victory over OSU. It was a lot of fun and one of my first basketball games since working for the OU Athletic Department last year. I definitely got a headache from being seated by a group of students who started the chants for the entire student section! But it was well worth it. I looked on the Twitter handle of the OU Men's basketball team after the game, and there was a picture of the team high-fiving fans! Can you find me?

On Friday I went to see the movie Selma. I highly recommend that everyone go and watch it. It's heartbreaking but just goes to show how AMAZING the people who organized civil rights movements were. And that's the thing that I really took away from it, they were just people but they did AMAZING things. At one point in the film when someone is arguing and saying that they've done all that they can do for the movement. Martin Luther King Jr., who was played by David Oyelowo, says that he's just a preacher from Atlanta and look what he accomplished. I was blown away by the simplicity of how change only needs one person.
During this week we got to see some early signs of spring! And also a little bit of snow. Only in Oklahoma do you have a snowy mornings followed by a wonderful weekend of sun. After spending the weekend playing board games, cards and eating good food, it's due time to catch up on the homework I have been procrastinating. In one of my other classes I actually have to do blog posts as well. So this semester I'll be running two blogs and absorbing all of the tech and design information I should already know.
