S4S & The Power of Words

Good morning everyone! Another day here at Riddle. I hope your Monday wasn’t too bad! I actually had an unusually busy Monday yesterday. I had two meetings in the morning, my calculus class, and then two more meetings and an event to go to. I’m not complaining, it did keep me busy.

One of the meetings I went to yesterday was for Society 4 S.P.A.C.E. We are having our final meeting of the semester tomorrow! I can’t believe it is time for the final meeting! This semester has flown by! Anyway, I go to see the new research lab S4S has. It is SO much bigger than the tiny one we had in Canaveral Hall. We moved up to the big leagues! We are now in COAS! It is a super nice lab and I can’t wait to see it all come together.

One of the main reasons I had a meeting with the president yesterday is because…

I am happy to announce that I will be taking over as President of Society 4 S.P.A.C.E!

I have known for a couple of weeks now, but now that it is out there, I am so happy I can announce it! I could have only dreamed of becoming the president of S4S down the road, but here it is in my lap for the taking! I will be taking December to not only prepare for the coming Spring semester but I will be taking the time to completely revamp S4S. I am so excited!

Last night, my COM 122 teacher hosted an event in the IC center: “The Power of Words: Political Correctness.” She told all of her classes about it and if we went and stayed for an hour (which we all did) we would get 25 points extra credit. I had no idea what I was getting into but it was actually pretty interesting. We talked about political correctness, gender identity, statistics of the population, and much more. The talk ran over an hour so I could not stay for the whole thing, but for the hour I did, it was actually really interesting!

I thought it was really cute how her mom came too! You can tell just from the look on her face that she was proud to see her daughter up there doing what she loved.

Tonight, Prof. Searcy is hosting another event “Take Back the Night: Speak Up Against Sexual and Domestic Violence.” If her students go and take a selfie and stay for an hour we get another 25 points extra credit. Tonight will be a tougher night to get through seeing that there will be actual stories people are telling but I am interested to see how the night goes.

Don’t worry! I will write about it! Hope you all have a great day!
