hello! it's been a few months since i've been on here. sorry about that. i do keep up with reading other blogs - but just haven't had the time to write a post. so i decided to compile a bunch of little anecdotes about my college life so far.
dear freshman me, why on earth did you sign up for an 8am statistics lecture? you may have been overzealous in that first year (y'all i used to wake up at 6am to prep for my 8am chem lectures), but as a sophomore... i'm a morning person, but still.
psa: hot cheetos are the bomb. coming from someone who despises cheetos...they're actually really really good.
triple checking to make sure video & microphone are turned off during live lectures < that zoom life.
surviving off pasta + chicken, cuz those are the only foods the dining hall can actually make ok. (besides breakfast. their breakfast is surprisingly amazing).
tater tot day is the best day.
my suitemate + i have a new tradition on how to spend our non-homework nights - eat pita chips, play scrabble, and * occasionally * watch love island. we're grandmas. also i hate how i've only seen two love island episodes, and i'm already so invested in that stupid stupid show. (update: i haven't seen anymore episodes + i'm proud of myself, lol.)
surprisingly, the chicken alfredo @ the dining hall is flat-out amazing. which is huge coming from me, as i do not like cheese. lol.
also been going thru sherlock with a friend thru netflix party, and apparently i'm absorbing it too much cuz now i've started talking like a british person.
left my room w/o a face mask, realized halfway down the hall, sprinted back to my room while pulling my sweatshirt over my face. ah, how i love 2020.
watched harry potter + the order of the phoenix and ate pretzels with my suitemates. it was a good night.
my suitemates + i have been going to the farmer's market every saturday morning. it's one of the highlights of week. the other day i bought a bouquet of flowers, and now i have mason jars full of yellow and pink flowers all over my room (and i stuffed some in a water bottle < college life).
ordered pizza + watched the lion king 1 1/2.
lots and lots of calling my mom + dad. and facetime calls with my best friends at other universities.
went to the local library + picked up the raven boys + blue lily, lily blue! i love reading that series during autumn. we'll see how far along i can read....so far i'm halfway thru the raven boys! and i've forgotten just how incredible this series is. update: wrote this three weeks ago. haven't been able to read any more, lol.
also suddenly this week, we got fall weather? and i'm so excited + i really hope it lasts. i've been in leggings + sweatshirts for the past five days, and i'm thriving.
put jeans on for the first time on wednesday. and sent a selfie to my mom. she was shocked lol.
also apparently there are psych books? like legit mysteries with Shawn + Gus! my dad got me one as a surprise on move-in day, and i'm loving it. the guy who wrote them actually wrote a couple episodes, so he's totally got Shawn + Gus's voices + personalities.
picnics are so much fun. especially in nice weather.
even tho ants love to climb all over me.
apparently wednesdays are jean days now.
quizlet is queen.
ordered panera + watched pride & prejudice (2005) w/ my suite mate. i love the bbc version, but i really enjoyed the keira knightley version too. :)
introduced my suite mate to a very potter musical (*cough* due to lots of content, cannot recommend. but it's hysterical. it's on youtube if you're curious ;) ). and now she'll randomly run into my room + shout "DID SOMEONE SAY DRACO MALFOY?!" and it's the best thing ever, lol.
also i discovered the x-files + now i'm obsessed. it's the perfect blend of creepy (but not horror) + murder mystery, especially for sPookY sEasOn.
anyway, hope y'all are doing well!
can't believe it's already october.
