Snowball Peace

So two nights ago it snowed quite a bit and was extremely cold. This caused someone on Facebook to organize a campus wide snowball fight on the mall. Normally I avoid snow like the plague but this was an opportunity I couldn’t miss. Though I wouldn’t be participating in throwing snow since I recently lost my gloves, I still wanted to see what the hullabaloo was about.

When I went out there, there was about 50 people throwing snow, some running around shirtless, and some just spectating. Since I’m taking Intro to Peace Studies this semester, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to use what I learned to try to promote peace to the commoners throwing snow. And much to my dismay, no one listened. But needless to say, I’ll be expecting my Nobel Peace Prize soon, please and thanks.

Sorry for the blurry picture. It's hard to get a good pic when you're dodging snowballs!

Music Monday: Pancake Cake Cakes

Yesterday, one of my very generous residents made pancakes for the unit! I never had chocolate chip pancakes before nor had I eaten pancakes in years so I was extremely excited to be able to eat some. Needless to say, I had two and they were delicious. And, unfortunately, I ate them extremely quickly because I had to rush to church and I got a stomach ache because of it. :( They were so good that I think I’ll visit IHOP sometime soon to celebrate my newfound love!

Making the pancakes!

This made me decide to make today’s music monday dedicated to Rihanna and her song “Birthday Cake.” No, my birthday isn’t any time soon but it had the work “cake” in the title so I thought it was fitting. This is one of my favorite songs and let’s just say that I sing this song at the top of my lungs when I’m alone in the car.

New Identities

So I get bored easily so one of the things I take my frustrations out on is the Starbucks on campus. Normally at Starbucks when you get a drink they ask you for a name on the cup so they can give you the correct drink on the other side of the store. So since I’ve caught on that you don’t have to provide your real name, I’ve been taking this opportunity to adopt a plethora of new identities!

My favorite go-to identities are Barack Obama and Beyoncé but there are others I use as well. It’s always so funny to hear “Venti water for Barack Obama” and it’s hilarious to see people’s reactions when they hear the name and see me walking up to get my cup. I keep running out of ideas but I can’t wait to use more identities in the upcoming weeks!

My latest identity!
