Music Monday: The Beatles

So I’ve been inspired by my lack of being able to not spend money to become a hipster. I feel like shopping and, life in general, would be so much cheaper if I became one! …Except when I shop at Whole Foods…. To embark on my new hipster lifestyle, I’ve decided to start listening to The Beatles.

Now, I know what you’re thinking. “But everyone likes The Beatles.” Which is true, but I feel like it’s a hipster thing to do to like something everyone else likes just to be a hipster. It makes sense in my mind…. They also make perfect study music so they’ve been getting me through the day. Now I have “Eleanor Rigby” on repeat. It’s my favorite song of theirs.

RA of the Universe

So last week at our weekly RA staff meeting, I was bestowed with the honors of being RA of the Week and RA of the Month. So, basically, this makes me RA of the universe. To celebrate my new reign, I decided to get snacks and drinks for my residents and held an impromptu event in my room.

Since I’m now royalty, I decided to treat myself to caviar from Whole Foods. I was expecting it to taste bitter and terrible but it was actually quite delicious. So I spent all Friday night doing homework, listening to Lana Del Rey, and eating caviar. If that’s not luxurious, I don’t know what is.

Spring Break Is Over

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!

True Life: I’m Addicted to Whole Foods

Lately the weather has been a little crappy and I haven’t liked it one bit. Not only has it been awkwardly cold, it has also been rainy, snowy, drizzly, and just about any other weather term ending in “-y.” That being said, I keep treating every possible bad weather alert like an approaching apocalypse and, in my crazy mind, have been hoarding food in my room.

Now whenever I get a winter weather warning on my phone, I use it as an excuse to go to Whole Foods. Hey, you can’t take any chances when there’s snow on the way because you never know if you’ll get snowed in and can’t get to food! I’ve stocked up on water, tortilla chips, honey, pomegranates, and, my newest obsession, Voss water. Voss is water from Norway so it makes me feel pretentious when I drink it. So, yes, this is the current state of my life, hoarding Norwegian water.

New World

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:

Whole Foods Love

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!
