The Oscars

Yesterday the Oscars were on so while trying to finish up on my homework, I caught glimpses of the show. Seth MacFarlane, the creator of Family Guy, was the host and from what I saw, he was slightly offensive, which is what I expected. Some of the winners included the film Argo for Best Picture and Jennifer Lawrence who won for Best Actress. She awkwardly tripped while going to accept her award but of course she handled it like a champ and very comically!

Two of my favorite moments involved Michelle Obama and Adele. The First Lady made a surprise televised appearance to present the award for Best Picture and looked spectacular! Adele sang her song “Skyfall” and definitely restored my faith in music once again. It was a good show and I can’t wait until next year’s!

Here’s Jennifer Lawrence’s hilarious press conference after the show:

Tired

Since I’ve been back for RA training, I’ve been working on my bulletin boards. I have one left to complete and I cannot think of any ideas for it! I keep brainstorming and brainstorming and have come up with nothing! Of course I would get to my last board and draw a blank!

Today for training we had to wake up by 8 and, knowing me, I had the bright idea to stay up all night until 2 AM to work on my bulletin boards. Needless to say I’m exhausted now and I had a nasty headache all day. :( But now that I’m almost done, I will be catching up on some much needed sleep! :)

Set Fire To The Rain

The weather has been awkwardly depressing lately. Not only has it been cold, it has been drizzling/raining. I’ve had to start wearing my jacket and bundling up. I guess fall is coming with a vengeance this year. I’ve been listening to Adele to prepare myself for this weather and so far it has been working.

With October just starting, I can’t help but think about how soon Halloween is. I think I also might actually dress up this year! So far I have no idea what I want to be but I’m sure I’ll think of something. I’m thinking of visiting my friends at IU for Halloween so that should be fun.

Olympics

The Olympics are going to be held in London this year and there has definitely been a lot of promotion because it is everywhere! It has been on TV, magazines, the radio, literally everywhere! It has even invaded my breakfast!

There has been Olympics stuff on my cereal!

But I’m really looking forward to a couple things involving the Olympics. First, I heard Adele is performing at either the opening or closing ceremony so I’m curious to see what kind of spectacular performance she will put on. And second, I’m looking forward to seeing if Michael Phelps will dominate again like he did in 2008.

Needless to say, it was still delicious!

I’m In a Band

Tonight, when we were bored in the Collegian office, five of us decided to make a new band called Madison and the Typesetters. We’re a newly formed punk feminist band and we’re obviously going to take the world by storm.

I’m at backup vocals and lead guitar, which kind of makes me a big deal, except for the fact that I can’t sing or play an instrument. We’re even going to make our first single, and it’s called “Bad News.”

Although I wish we actually were starting a band, I do plan on writing a song. Watch out, Adele, Andre’s coming for ya! I don’t know what it’s going to be about or what it’ll sound like but it’s going to happen.

This is probably be my next single cover. It's wacky enough to get my point across!

 

Cherishing the Warmth!

Yesterday it was so warm I was tempted to go outside without a jacket and I enjoyed it. I even went on a walk! I’ve decided to cherish the warmth when it’s warm outside because as soon as I walked outside today it was terribly cold. I just hope it will be hot outside by the time spring break rolls around, which isn’t too far away!

Today there is the election for Student Government Association President and I plan on going to vote! This is my way of making my voice count since I’m not quite old enough to vote in a real election yet. SGA is holding a “Rock The Vote” event on campus where students can vote and there will be food and activities. I can’t wait!

In more important news, I was woken up to knocks on my door by my RA at 3 in the morning telling me to go to the basement because there was a Tornado watch. I am thankful for two things. 1. That campus was concerned for our safety & 2. I went to bed early because I couldn’t fall back asleep!

That’s all for today! Feel free to leave a comment! You can see my Twitter here.

Random Song of the Day: “Set Fire To The Rain” by Adele

Getting Into the Christmas Spirit with Donkeys!

The biggest thing on campus now is how everyone is anticipating finals and the donkey. I’ll get to the donkey later.

Finals are in two weeks which actually makes me happy because it means that Christmas break is almost upon us!

I also recently bought the song “Rolling In The Deep” by Adele and I highly recommend it! I’m a big Adele fan so I might be biased but it is one of her better songs!

So the fraternity TKE every year when the students get back from Thanksgiving break plays the song “Dominick the Italian Christmas Donkey” on a continuous loop nonstop. It just so happens to be my favorite Christmas song so I don’t mind! It’s definitely been a topic of discussion in all of my classes today.

That’s all for today! Thanks for visiting my blog and feel free to leave a comment!
