Day 186: Pre-Cortaca

As some of you know, I went to a small(ish) liberal arts school in upstate New York. Our biggest claim to fame to Cortaca – our yearly rivalry game against SUNY Cortland. Now up in the northeast, we don’t celebrate college football they way they do down here with all day tailgating and celebrations. For us, Cortaca is the one time a year when we wake up bright and early for kegs & eggs, put on seventeen sweatshirts (it is upstate NY in November after all), and “watch” football. I had to put “watch” in quotes because I think comparing how we watch the game versus how these southerners watch football is a bit misleading. Our version of ‘watching’ involves chanting back and forth about how neither of our schools actually have a real mascot and then getting bored with the football aspect mid-game and leaving to get pizza.

Anyways, this weekend I’m headed off to NYC to hang out with some of my old college roommates to celebrate Cortaca in the city! My flight leaves Atlanta tonight at 8pm and I’ve spent all day trying REALLY hard to get work done. So far I’ve color-coded my research… using crayons. The work day needs to be over!

Onto my outfit! L kept teasing me that this cardigan makes me look like a bull fighter. So I couldn’t resist this silly picture below. In all seriousness, I always fly with a cardigan. I feel like planes can go from frigid to sauna-status in less than a minute, so I like to be prepared. Speaking of which, I’m actually moderately prepared for this trip because I’m actually already packed. This is a first.

Anyways, GO BOMBERS!
