Happy Thanksgiving!

I am thankful for family, friends, and most importantly FOOTBALL. There is nothing like relishing food, football, and sleep during this wonderful break. Thursday night, turkey and Lions-Packers. Friday night, leftover turkey and LSU-Arkansas. Saturday night, pig roast and GT-u[sic]ga. Sunday night, leftover pig roast and Falcons-Vikings. Could this break get any better?

Here are some great u[sic]ga jokes for Hate Week:
  1. A lady called the UGA police to report a car jacking. They said they were too busy right now and for her to just get the jersey number and call back later.
  2. Why were the UGA football players so upset about the library fire? Because most of the books hadn't been colored yet.
  3. Three UGA players drowned when their pickup went into the creek. They couldn't get the tailgate open.
  4. Once upon a time, three co-workers were out on a company hiking retreat. One was a rabid Notre Dame fan, another followed the University[sic] of Georgia, and the last was a Georgia Tech alum. As they climbed the mountain a fierce debate to decide which was the more passionate fan broke out. The higher they ascended the more heated the argument became until finally they reached the top and overlooked a steep cliff. The Notre Dame fan finally snapped and declared "Fine, I will PROVE that I will give ANYTHING for my school". Then he sprinted toward the abyss screaming "THIS IS FOR THE IIIRRRIIIISSSSHHHHH!!!!!!" and threw himself over the cliff! The U[sic]GA fan was astonished and rushed to the edge to see what happened. Then the Georgia Tech alum, not to be outdone, yelled "OH YEAH, well THIS is for the Yellow Jackets!" and he sprinted toward the cliff even more ferociously than the Notre Dame fan did! ...And slammed right into the U[sic]GA fan knocking him over the edge to his death.
    The moral of this story is that janitors are easily replaced.
  5. Three UGA players are riding together in a car. Who is drving? Answer: The state trooper.

"I'm a Ramblin' Wreck from Georgia Tech" was whistled by John Wayne in a movie, was the first school song sung in outer space, and was sung by the President of the United States with the Premier of the Soviet Union at the time, Nixon and Khrushchev. Lastly, it was sung by Allied forces while crossing the English Channel on the morning of D-Day in order to calm the soldiers' nerves. "Glory, Glory (to Georgia)" was sung in Athens last week.

To Hell With georgia!

"When I am sad, I stop being sad and become awesome instead. True Story."

Yes. Yes I am in tears. Who wouldn't be? I loved her. I took her on dates every Saturday. No matter the time. I stalked her online. I studied her every move. And then one weekend I let you go off to Charlottesville, Virginia alone, you betray my love. You took my heart and tossed it on the floor. What is more even humiliating, you did this with someone who isn't even in the top twenty five! And now when BCS ranks you, I hope you get left off their list. Forget you Georgia Tech football, I promise you, you won't be missed!

But I am kidding. I still got love for my Yellow Jackets, but a loss to the Cavaliers this past weekend was a definite blow. We were number 12, now what will we be?! Well, at least we're still the number 24 university in the world ( But this weekend of football has just been
depressing. As I have said previous in my last post, I went to Raleigh, North Carolina to watch the Yellow Jackets take on the Wolfpack and it was an amazing experience.
We spent a night packing over thirty people into our friend's home before heading to UNC Chapel Hill to check out their popular Franklin Street. We had a great time just roaming the streets and checking out the nightlife that Franklin Street boasts. Away games. So much fun.

So as a Peer Leader (an upperclassmen living with the freshmen in the residence halls that serve to assist them academically and socially), I have been reliving freshmen year. This is how we celebrate birthdays on my hall:
Working as a PL on the hall is a tough job. It is easier when your hall clicks but with all the things going on in everybody's lives, we can't all have the time to "click." So, here is a request to those who plan to come to Tech, HANG OUT WITH YOUR HALL. That is all.

Now, you may be wondering why I haven't spoken about the arduous classes of Georgia Tech. Well, you have to remember that I am still currently carrying out my "school-free plan." I am still a co-op for The Coca-Cola Company. Still having the time of my life. Still be AWESOME. You might be asking, "What is an awesome mechanical engineer like you Lishan do at The Coca-Cola Company?" Well, I work in the Equipment Engineering Department and I have had the chance to work with the new Freestyle dispenser that you may or may not have seen at
restaurants these days. I worked on the commercialization team for this 125-drink bad boy before that team got moved to another department. Now, I currently work with designing an experiment to test certain factors in CO2. Yeah, real nerdy things. Oh, and remember that giant tarp and light show that was on the Coke building back in May? Yeah, my idea.

But you may be wanting an update on my finger. yes, I believe it is still broken and definitely still crooked. Have you guys ever had acupuncture?
Yes, this was a lot of fun.

For next time: How to become awesome like me.

Fall Break is awesome. Unless you are a co-op.
