Chicago native thinks her gen-eds are boring, likes Tucson weather and has seen yellow snow

WILDCAT: Of all the majors you could choose, why something hard like molecular and cellular biology?

ORTIZ: Because I'm going into pre-med. It is one of the few majors that has all the requirements for pre-med.

WILDCAT: I have friends in that major and all they ever do is study. They can never do anything because they are studying. Seriously, they do it nonstop. I hope you don't spend all your time studying too.

ORTIZ: Not right now because I'm taking all my gen-eds and they aren't that hard.

WILDCAT: Are they fun and exciting or just a pain in the ass?

ORTIZ: Yeah, they are pretty much a pain in the ass. They are so boring and all about nothing.

WILDCAT: I took some absolutely horrible ones last year. I'd either not be there, or when I was there, I'd be sleeping. So why did you decide to come to UA?

ORTIZ: I'm from Chicago and I wanted to come to some nice weather.

WILDCAT: Nice weather? It's freezing.

ORTIZ: I have this sweater on, but I'm sweating and want to take it off.

WILDCAT: What do you think it is in Chicago right now?

ORTIZ: My mom told me they got 8 inches of snow last night, so I'm pretty glad that I'm here.

WILDCAT: Ever seen yellow snow?

ORTIZ: Yeah I had a dog so

WILDCAT: So it wasn't yellow snow caused by you?

ORTIZ: No.

WILDCAT: It would have made a better story if it was. So, how well do you think I'm doing so far with this On The Spot?

ORTIZ: You are doing pretty good.

WILDCAT: You think so? The girl that is supposed to be doing this is just too busy and I have to be out here in this freezing weather.
