Yesterday, while looking at my daily student emails I came across an email that really caught my attention. The email was sent from the student community email regarding the Spring Fling. It has been a long time since we have been able to participate in activities in person such as trivia nights and movie nights at the Loma Theater. Reading this email made me really happy because I felt like it was another step closer to “normal life”. The thought of us coming together for another week-long event is heartwarming.
One of the events being held that really caught my attention was Giant Chess at the east side of Fidel. One of my favorite tv shows that I watched last year while staying at home was The Queen’s Gambit. The Queen’s Gambit quickly became a fan favorite and anywhere I went I would hear someone talk about it. If you haven’t watched The Queen’s Gambit, it is literally a show all about chess. That show renewed my interest in chess and since then I have been playing a lot of chess in my free time.
Another event that really caught my attention was Laser Tag at the library. There isn’t much information on these events yet so it is left up to imagination. I imagined being in the library with laser guns wearing neon vests, while the lights in the library were dimmed. Another one of my favorite shows is Community and each season on the show the community college would have school wide paintball fights. Seeing how much chaos was created from the paintball fights made me think about how laser tag in the library would go. I’m sure it would be a lot less chaotic.
There are a lot of other fun activities planned for that week so make sure to check it out if you haven’t already! Since Socorro County just turned Turquoise the SGA is going to try to plan some more events. Besides the activities planned during Spring Fling week, there have also been a couple of announcements regarding movie nights at the Loma Theater. I’m very excited to see what other new events are announced over the remainder of the semester!
