The Interim Experience

posted in Javauhn Caines

Last post I talked about all the cool things several Lafayette students were doing around the world. Then I talked about how since I was working with basketball, the majority of my time was spent going to practice and in my room watching movies, some really bad and some really good ones. For example, as […]

The Home Stretch

posted in Javauhn Caines

Think about one day going to the Kentucky or even watching television and hearing the announcer describe that last turn when all the horses turn the corner and head down the final stretch. Where they have to fight through all the adversity of just having run a very long race to push through and get […]

Gobble Gobble Gobble

Probably one of the most anticipated days in the life of a college student. After months of eating the same food, which is alright but does not compare to mom’s home cooking, there is that one day where you can go back home, spend some time with family and friends and stuff your face with […]

HOMECOMING!!!!!!!!

posted in Javauhn Caines

One of the best days to experience at Lafayette College. The day when alumni come back, when the football stadium is packed on the Lafayette side, when all work gets put aside just to celebrate and see your friends who have graduated. If you couldn’t tell, I had a great homecoming weekend. Every other year […]

Home Sweet Home

posted in Javauhn Caines

After a stressful week, there isn’t a better remedy than going back home to some great home cooked food and seeing all of your friends and family. That is the enjoyment that most of the Lafayette students and I were able to enjoy this weekend. After two exams in both Physics and Calculus, the last […]
