Dinosaur Blues

So it’s getting to the end of the year which means most of my International residents are leaving soon! It’s sad but also good since winter break is soon! I can’t wait to just be able to relax and not have to worry about any assignments for about two months!

One of the perks of being an RA is that your residents give you their stuff if they leave for the semester! Yesterday I got a cool Dinosaur onesie from my resident Stuart! It’s quite possibly the best thing I’ve ever received.

I'm a dinosaur. So what?

Homework Break

So this Thanksgiving Break has consisted of me just doing homework, homework, and more homework. It’s getting to the final stretch of classes and my professors have been assigning the final assignments and projects already. Plus I have a big test coming up soon which I’ve also been nervous about/studying for.

Tomorrow I might take a break from studying since it’s Thanksgiving Day but it depends on how productive I am today. I’ve actually been doing quite well at keeping up with my homework schedule over break which is surprising because when I’m at school I can never keep up with it.

Over Achieving Boredom

So finals are coming up this week and luckily for me I only really have one actual exam and the rest are just writing final papers. Since I want to make the most of my relaxation time. So that means this weekend I have been  unnecessarily  finishing most of my papers for classes so next week I won’t have much to do.

Since I’ve been doing all of my assignments so awkwardly early, I’ve been using a lot of my free time to browse the web and see what I find. One of the things I’ve found a new pasion for are stop motion videos. They involve so much work and effort to make that it amazes me whenever I see intricate ones. This is one of my favorites:

Hopefully one day, with enough patience, I will be able to make one too.

Music Monday: Apocalypse Edition

So I was really hoping the world would end on Friday and really hoped the Mayans were right but sadly they were incorrect. I only wanted the world to end just so I could brag that I went through the apocalypse in the afterlife but I guess I won’t get to do that just yet!

Inspired by the (not so) end of the world, this week’s Music Monday choice is “Till The World Ends” by Britney Spears. The video takes place in a sewer system during the apocalypse on Dec 21 and is basically an underground nightclub. Hey, if there’s nothing else left in the world, why not dance!? That’s basically the whole plot of the video so enjoy!

Even though the world didn’t end, at least I can say I survived the apocalypse!

Almost Here

The semester is almost about to start and I’ve yet to get things organized in my room. I have everything unpacked but now it’s just a matter of actually putting them in the right spots. Things were actually more organized when I first got unpacked but now as I’ve been doing things all week, I’ve just been throwing things everywhere.

My desk is my biggest problem… I just picked up my books from the bookstore so they’re taking up most of my desk but I’ve also been using it to hold my clothes, papers, supplies, and everything else really. Since I’ll have more free time tomorrow, hopefully I’ll be able to getting around to do that.

It's not as clean as I would like it but it's getting there!
