How has this semester with IM Lee Sports been going?

This semester for IMLeesSports has been hectic but fun. First time doing our own leagues so we had to deal with everything from meetings with players to aiding them on the field when injured or (refereeing) them. We were with the players from start to finish with all the games. Even the other campuses as well such as Honolulu and Kapiolani.

While Leeward Community College does not have a large cat problem there are a few feral cats that roam the outside edges of the campus ground. These cats are taken care of by different staff members who have volunteered to take on the title of feral cat caregiver by administration. These individuals use their own funds to feed, spay, and neuter the cat population.

People consider the friend zone to be an unfair place. They feel entitled to have their feelings reciprocated, and if they aren’t, life seems cruel. When the feeling of becoming intimate with a specific person no longer controls a person, the many benefits of the friend zone can be reaped.
