So I’m a day late with my Music Monday so I decided to make a Music Tuesday today. It has been so bright and sunny out lately so I thought it would be fitting for today’s Music Tuesday to be dedicated to Beyoncé and her song in the H&M commercial “Standing On The Sun.”
Beyoncé is the new face of the swim line at H&M, which happens to be my favorite clothing store. Her commercial for the line is glorious to say the least. It involves her dancing and frolicking around on the beach. If only I looked that great on the beach. Instead, I look like a beached whale that gets awkward and gangly. But I digress.
Unfortunately I don’t wear bikinis so I can’t get any clothes from the line but I can admire from afar, in the least creepy sounding way possible.
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!

Much to my dismay, Spring Break 2013 is over. Although I didn’t do too much exciting besides homework and a bit of shopping, I’d much rather lay around my house doing homework than coming back to school and doing homework. But I’m still happy to be back! I actually arrived yesterday just so I could print all the papers I did over break and to get settled in before everyone else and, most importantly, get a good parking spot. I’m very protective over my parking spots so that means more to me than it does to most people.
When I got here yesterday, I finished some of my homework, went to Whole Foods (of course), and to get new pants at H&M. It was just so nice to get out and do something since no one was on campus yet so it was pretty boring just sitting in my room. Thankfully, people are trickling back in today so I can have some kind of human contact!
There are cars in the parking lot! People are here!
On Friday night, my faculty in residence took about 25 people from our wing in our residence hall to see the Nutcracker for free! She had snacks and food in her apartment before the performance and then I walked over with my residents to see the ballet. It was such a great performance and it was nice recognizing people I knew in the ballet.
Yesterday, as I was minding my business in my room, I got a knock at my door from some of my residents bearing gifts for me! It was so nice since I wasn’t expecting it! Aly gave me a Santa Claus sticky and wrote me a nice letter while Tammy got me a scarf and bear from Starbucks. I’m glad they thought of me enough to get me a gift!
Posing with my gifts!
I’ve decided to hop on the Music Monday trend and do a review of the new Lana Del Rey music video. To give a background, Lana’s music is kind of bleak, dull, and dreary, and I love it! Her most famous song is “Video Games,” which she performed on Saturday Night Live a little bit ago. She’s currently the spokesperson for H&M and of course I had to take a picture with her picture in the store in Chicago!
Lana and I in Chicago!
The music video for her song “Ride” takes place in a desert in Nevada. Lana plays a woman who has to sleep with different men for protection/housing. The video definitely has an interesting concept. My favorite part of it is all of the scenery and the quality of the film. It’s 10 minutes long, which makes it a little lengthy, but I was entertained the whole time. I recommend watching it if you have some spare time.
