Taking a little time off in...

A view of Berkeley, Oakland and San Francisco

...California. Once again, I am fall breaking in the Bay Area. Why? The sun and surf, the views... and the World Series! Yes, baseball finally got interesting enough to watch.  While the series hasn't disappointed, the weather has. Of the weather, like Mark Twain, I would say, "The coldest fall I ever spent was a fall break in San Francisco." Oh, yes... go Royals!

A picture perfect day for...

                                                                                        *Photo by AJ Tablada

that perfect Notre Dame picture. Using his new iPhone, you know, the one that's the size of an iPad, AJ Tablada '14, Sted's AR, snapped this panoramic photo from the student section of the ND Stadium when the Irish took down North Carolina. On achieving such a magnificent photo, AJ said, ""For the first time at the NC game, I was able to test the camera of this new "phablet"  (phone-tablet) of mine, the iPhone 6 Plus, and was quite impressed! Well done Tim Cook! The gold on our helmet never looked so good!" It also takes great video too! Thanks AJ!

Caught up in the...

Representing in Tallahassee 

...sun and the fun of game day, Sted's seniors, Pat Roemer and Alex Caton, along with Fr. Ralph Haag, C.S.C., Sted's rector, made the most of their time in "sunshine state" and its fair capitol, Tallahassee. Even though they may have been pilgrims in an unholy land, the detachment from Steds did much to bolster Irish hopes and spirits that day, giving free hugs, convincing smiles, and heartfelt cheers. Of the day, Caton said, "Good times and good company, talking shop behind enemy lines. While the result was less than stellar, we tailgated like gentlemen."

Oh the things that...

Waiting for words of wisdom

...the Gentlemen write on their dry erase boards! I guess that we’ll have to wait until these Stedsmen return from Fall Break to hear what the tip of the day is. Hey guys, I am sure that it's a great tip, but don’t rush back...just saying.

They're getting married!

The future Kevin and Lauren Quigley

It’s official. They're getting married! Stedsman Kevin Quigley '11, Stedsman, and Lauren Mach '11 are getting married this December in Basilica of the Sacred Heart at Notre Dame. Congratulations and best wishes to Kevin and Lauren respectively!

On her marrying into the Sted's Family, Lauren said, "The men of St. Edward's Hall are some of the most welcoming, gregarious, and all-around fun gentlemen I have had the pleasure of meeting, and I am so excited to be officially joining their ranks... PLUS my last name will finally match the last name on the arm of the St. Ed's sweatshirt I stole 5 and a half years ago!"

A rest from your labors.

Don't forget to turn off the lights.

We're half way through the Fall Semester? Where has the time gone? Well then, it's time for a break, and what better way to celebrate this milestone than with Fall Break! So, put down the books, shut down the computers, and take a break from your academic labors. What am I doing? Well, keep on reading the blog, and you might find out. To all Stedsmen, break well!
