  • A Week Off Work

    by Nick Rush | Jul 07, 2017
    <p>I&rsquo;m not going to lie, this Fourth of July holiday week has been different for me. This time in previous years I was always practicing for football, excluding last year because I was working since I had graduated. Let me start from the beginning of the week.</p> <p>As a Conference Assistant during the summer at MU, I help with camps that come here. We didn&rsquo;t have any over the break so I was able to go home and spend it with family. Well, that&rsquo;s what I thought I was going to do. Here is everything in a nutshell: from the 30<sup>th</sup> until the 4<sup>th</sup> I was in town spending time with my family and friends. I was with my family during the day, and I was with my friends at night. My parents and I just hung around the house or we went and worked out. My friends and I did mostly the same; we all went to a friend&rsquo;s house. My sister and I recorded a video of her singing while I played the guitar, so that was kind of cool.</p> <p>Here is the semi-interesting part. Instead of staying in town on the 4<sup>th</sup>, I went to Muncie where my roommate and another friend were. Before I left for Muncie, I decided I was going to take a pitstop in Avon to have dinner with an old friend. After 3 hours of driving and stopping for dinner, I finally made it there. As soon as I got my stuff inside his house, we took off to our firework-watching destination. We met with my roommate&rsquo;s old high school friend and just threw a football around until the fireworks started. Once they were over, we shot off fireworks of our own. I met some cool people, shot off some cool fireworks, and watched some all in the same night.</p> <p>This is the most interesting part, which kind of contradicts my title &ndash; oops &ndash; my coworkers and I had to come back to work on the 6<sup>th</sup>. However, we received an email saying the power will be off on the 6<sup>th</sup> and no one is supposed to come to campus to work&hellip; except for us. We worked until the hallways were pitch black and you couldn&rsquo;t see the face of someone 10 feet in front of you and the staircases were pitch black. The power in my room finally came back on around 10:45pm and my room almost instantly dropped five degrees. Working in the dark was definitely interesting to say the least.</p> <p>Now it&rsquo;s time to get back to the swing of things working various hours during the week and going to play baseball on the weekend. I will leave you with some news, by the time I post next I will no longer be 19 years old!!</p> <img src="/images/default-source/social-media-and-official-blogs/nickrushe902d0922d02625b9ff6ff0000763cab.jpg?sfvrsn=3b00b262_2" data-displaymode="Original" alt="NickRush" title="NickRush" /><br /> <p><em>Nick Rush &rsquo;20 is studying Sports Management and plans on minoring in another business area.
