Aggie Rings!

If ya'll didn't know already, getting an Aggie Ring is pretty much equal to or more exciting for students on campus than actual graduation day. It is a pretty big deal, and I don't think I've met anyone yet who isn't getting their aggie ring. I remember sitting in class one day and telling a friend that I thought it was stupid to spend that much money on a ring. I said that I'd rather get something useful for graduation, like a mountain bike or something. Everyone just looked at me like I was stupid and said... "Are you crazy? You're an Aggie, you've gotta get the ring!" hhahaha. I thought about it quite a bit... and then started to want one. hahaha PEER PRESSURE!

No, but it really is a cool tradition. I've met a few ole' Ags from the 50's that wear their ring everywhere. When I go to Houston to visit family, I always see people with their ring on. Tyler and I talked about it and decided that it'd be a good buy. Plus, we've earned it... so we ordered our rings!!! They come in Nov. 14. We're gonna be plannin a ring-dunk sometime around then, so get ready. (another Aggie Tradition, you've gotta dunk the ring in a gallon of beer and catch your ring between your teeth at the end, don't worry we'll be using something else besides beer! haha)
