"Average" Week

Well this week at ONU nothing really too exciting happened like last week. This only means that maybe next week will be.

The first football game was this weekend. ONU won!! 29-22. The game was close but exciting. The marching band played really well and cannot wait until next game for the marching band half time show. If you are a person like me who does not really understand football, but still want to have fun, I recommend sitting behind the marching band. I may be a little bias in saying that since I am dating a tuba player. However they really are a fun group of people. You can watch them sing and dance to "Baby Got Back" and sing along to the "Beer Song". 

After the game, me and some of my friends went to yet another fair, the Harding County fair. We went and saw the demolition derby! It was loud, action filled and even got see some cute future demo drivers. What I mean is they had little kids in power wheel cars driving around like they were in a real demolition derby. When it came to the real cars there was a lot more action. A few fires, some poor sportsmanship, a broken axle and the barrier was broken. Here is a short video after the first fire. You can see a few hits but can hear a little bit of how loud it was.

First small fire.
They broke the barriers!

The second fire that was a little bigger
than the other one.

I ended the weekend by going to church then going back to my friends farm and did a little more shooting. I am getting better with the rifle. I tried some of the hand guns today and really enjoyed the Smith&Wesson .38 Special Revolver. I think I will take the spent shells and come up with some crafts I can do with them. Here goes to some brain storming in between classes. 


  1. Jessica - It sounds like you had a lot of fun this weekend. I enjoy watching football, but I have never thought to sit behind the band. It is definitely a good start for ONU to get a win on their first game. It also sounds like you had a lot of fun at the demolition derby. I have never been to a derby, but I think that it would be interesting to see. Besides the noise, it would be cool to see the cars crashing into each other. Thanks for sharing this awesome experience from your weekend.

  2. Jessica- I do agree that the band did an amazing job this past weekend. So no, dating a member of the band does not make you all that bias because they were good. I enjoyed the performance and also believe the band pumped up the fans slightly. Believe it or not, I never have gone to a county fair so watching that video was interesting. I am glad you had a decently fun weekend. You may call it "average" but I cannot imagine how much stuff you do on a busy weekend because you had, at least in my mind, a above average weekend.

  3. Crafting with the used shells sounds like fun! Those pictures are intense too. Looks like they really did a number on those cars!
