Movie Monday

Today I decided to switch things up and instead of doing a Music Monday post, I decided to do a Movie Monday post. Today’s movie is “Gatsby.” The movie is coming out later this year and stars Leonardo DiCaprio as the title character. It is based off of the book of the same name. The trailer came out and it looks amazing!

Something I’m looking the most forward to regarding the movie is the soundtrack. It’s supposed to feature Beyoncé doing a cover of an Amy Winehouse song, Lana Del Rey, Jay-Z, and Florence and the Machine. Jay-Z is producing the soundtrack so I can’t wait to hear it. The trailer for the movie features some of the songs from the movie and so far it all sounds amazing.

Shine Bright Like A Theta

So last week one of my residents, Aly, invited me to go to Theta formal with her and, being the upstanding gentleman that I am, I gladly obliged. She showed me what dress she was wearing so on Thursday I went to H&M with my pal Karleen to help me pick out an outfit. And even though we picked out clothes, I ended up wearing things I already had in my closet!

When I got to Theta, I was pleasantly surprised to see fellow blogger Bekah! ‘Twas a mini reunion! I knew she was a Theta but I forgot that she would be at formal so it was a great surprise. I also got to see all my other friends in the house and from my classes. I had the bad idea of thinking I was somehow going to finish my homework when I got back to campus but I ended up just going to bed and now waking up at a weird hour. But I ended up having a great time!

Bekah, me and our dates to formal!

Bowling for Days

So tonight I went bowling with my friend Karleen and, needless to say, I completely dominated. I normally throw gutters galore but tonight I successfully played one whole game without throwing a single one! My score ended up being like 83 but, since I was playing against such an amateur, I won pretty easily. ;)

We went to a place called Latitude 39 and it was really nice! It had neon lights, weird techno music, and great smelling food! So basically everything I’ve ever needed. The food there was awkwardly expensive so we got McDonald’s afterwards. I usually don’t like going off campus much on school nights but I did all my homework so I thought, “Why not!?”

I can’t wait to go again! I love playing against Karleen because she makes me feel better about how I play! Just kidding! …But seriously……

Taking the alley by storm!

April Fools

So April Fools, hands down, is my least favorite holiday. This is usually surprising to people since I’m sort of outgoing and wacky but no, it’s literally the worst thing since green beans. That being said, Google, as much as I love them, has gotten crazy with it and have created two new April Fools videos, one of which actually got me… One, which I can’t believe got me, is Google Nose which is supposedly new software that allows you to upload smells and send it to your friends via phones.

The second, which is more believable but thankfully I didn’t fall for, is Gmail Blue, which is basically Gmail but everything is blue. The thing I liked about this video is that it sort of disses Apple for creating the same product but pretending it’s different just with one little change. I guess it’s kind of funny to see such a large corporation really get into the spirit of the holiday but since I hate being tricked, I’ll like it from a distance!

I will admit both are very amusing and I’m curious to see what they come up with next year!
