So at this week’s RA staff meeting, yours truly was named RA of the Week. So basically,
in my mind, this makes me the King of my residence hall for the rest of the semester. I’ve decided to make Kim Kardashian my Queen and we’ll rule forever. I even wore purple today, the royal color, for the occasion. I also got a little bulldog stuffed animal as a prize but I have to give it to whomever wins next week.
In order to celebrate my new royal title, yesterday I invited my residents in my room to get candy and extra Red Bulls I had. I had a great turnout and I plan on banishing all of those who did not attend from the kingdom. So, in reality, I feel like Beyoncé in this video. Kate Middleton better watch out because I’m coming for her throne!
So I missed my usual Music Monday so I thought I’d make a Music Thursday! And there’s not a better way to celebrate my first Music Thursday without highlighting the video of one of my favorite artists: Lana Del Rey. Lana released the new music video to her song “Burning Desire” and of course it’s amazing. But I wouldn’t expect anything less from her.
The video features clips of the new Jaguar F-Type car since Lana has a partnership with the company as their spokesperson. It also features Lana standing on a stage and just singing, which is what I love most about the video. Sure it’s not the most exciting and riveting video, but it’s rare these days that you find a singer that can just stand and sing without all of the frills and whistles.

Today was Mardi Gras and it was a lot of fun! Unfortunately I was not able to go to New Orleans but I was able to go to the Mardi Gras event held in Resco. Last year I couldn’t go because I was busy but this year I was able to attend! There was so much food! They had Yats, candy, and King Cake. I’ve never had King Cake before so that was exciting to try and it was delicious!
There were many activities too! There was mask decorating, caricatures, and psychic readings. I was able to decorate a mask but I was too scared to go to the psychic for the fear of her telling me that I was going to die in like five minutes. Luckily, I didn’t! I ended my Mardi Gras night with photos in the photo booth and needless to say I’m surprised I didn’t break the booth with all the photos I took! I can’t wait to attend again next year!
Waiting in line for food!!

Beyoncé won the Super Bowl this year.
Instead of watching the Puppy Bowl this year, I decided to watch the real version. Only because Beyoncé was the halftime performer. I would also like to point out the fact that I correctly chose the winner of the game which means I’m on a two year win streak on choosing the winner of the Super Bowl. Maybe I should try to make money off of my talent in the future.
Now on to the performance… I thought it was great! Beyoncé looked spectacular, the song choices were great, and Destiny’s Child reunited! I was only disappointed in the fact that she did not sing a new song but the performance was still great nonetheless! She is supposed to be attending the Grammys this upcoming Sunday so hopefully she will be making a surprise performance with a brand new song! It’ll make my life complete.

So as part of my new healthy eating obsession with Whole Foods, I have decided that I can only eat things from Whole Foods. So far it hasn’t been going so well since all the food in the dining halls have been awkwardly good but I’m still trudging through! There’s always tomorrow!
Since I’m also on this healthy kick, I’ve been awkwardly obsessed with Dr. Oz and have been checking his website daily. I’m sure my healthy phase will last a couple more days until I give up completely and eat every Pop Tart in the world but for now, I’ll just keep living in my delusion!
Wonderful advice from Dr. Oz:
I’ve recently become obsessed with Whole Foods. I’ve gone there before but on Friday I decided to stock my room with groceries from there and have made a pact that I’ll only eat healthy foods forever! I’m assuming this is just a phase that’ll last two days but in the mean time, I’ll be under my own delusion!
After Spanish class on Friday I went to Whole Foods and picked up some fresh fruit, healthy drinks, cookies, chips, cookies, and popcorn. Needless to say I’ll be going back again this upcoming weekend to get more! I’m basically aiming to be the next Dr. Oz. I’ve eaten most of the food I purchased already (whoops!) so I’ll make sure I get enough that’ll last me a while when I go next time!
Some of the drinks I bought at Whole Foods!

So going into Django Unchained, I was a little nervous. I don’t normally seek out movies about slavery nor have I ever seen a movie by Quentin Tarantino so I really didn’t know what to expect. It also generated a lot of controversy over some of the content in the film so I really didn’t know what to expect! That being said, it ended up being a funny movie, despite the fact that it was almost 3 hours long.
The movie was about a slave named Django, portrayed by Jamie Foxx, who seeks revenge for being sold away from his wife and sets out to find her. He gets the help from a Bounty Hunter. I don’t want to give away too much of the plot and spoil the movie but let’s just say the rest of the movie involves a lot of explosions, swear words, and comedy. I was also extremely satisfied with the ending. I now want to watch one of Tarantino’s other famous films, Pulp Fiction, since I’ve heard so many great things about it.

Last night, as I was minding my own business about to go to bed, I decided to go online just to check on the news for the day. While I was on Twitter, all of a sudden I saw KimYe trending. KimYe is short for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West and is their celebrity couple name. And if you know anything about me, you’d know that Kanye is my favorite rapper/singer and Kim is my favorite person in existence. When I clicked on the trend, to my surprise, I found out that she is pregnant with Kanye’s child. The joy I felt was beyond words and needless to say this baby is a New Year’s miracle.
I got unnecessarily too excited about this news and started texting everyone in my phone expressing my excitement. Sure it was 1 AM but this was earth shattering news so it was urgent! Everyone I talked to was just as excited as me, or at least pretended to be. Now I will make it my number one goal to babysit this baby.

Although Beyoncé is my favorite singer, Kanye West is my favorite artist overall. I just love how creative his lyrics are and I love the creativity of his music videos. He’s also dating Kim Kardashian so that’s a plus in my book as well. My favorite song by Kanye is “Paris,” but my favorite video is “Power.”
The video is only 1 minute and 43 seconds long and is very creative. It is almost like a moving painting that starts out with a close headshot of Kanye and ends with a widened panoramic video of all of the other chaos going on in the “picture.” I love trying to focus on a new part of the painting each time I watch the video to see if I missed something the first time.
Yesterday was good for a couple of reasons. First, we had our blogger kick off party and all the bloggers got to reunite and eat and catch up. It was also good because I got, for the hundredth time, got a Facebook. I got it this time to keep up with my residents in my unit and to make a group and regularly update it. As soon as I’m friends with all of my residents I’ll make the group.
The biggest, and greatest, thing to happen yesterday was that my posters that I ordered from AllPosters came in! It’s so great because my room was so boring without them! I finally feel at home!
