Happy New Year! First blog post of the year!
It’s so weird thinking about entering a new year! I didn’t get to know 2013 for all that long! My biggest struggle this year will be remembering to write 2014 on everything instead of 2013. Heck, I was still writing 2012 on things in December of 2013! Instead of going out on New Year’s, I just laid in bed reading. Sure it’s a nerdy way to ring in the New Year but it was relaxing nonetheless.
While watching the news I saw that Dubai set the record for World’s Largest Firework Display on New Years. I’ve always wanted to visit Dubai and I’m sure it would’ve been quite a sight to see in person. I’m not usually a fireworks person but I would’ve made an exception this time.
Now that I have time to relax on break instead of being busy during the semester, I’ve decided to invest in a good book and Netflix. The first show I decided to watch once I got Netflix was House of Cards. It’s about a Congressman who works the political system to do things for his own benefit and to get his way. I started watching it since I’m going to be living in D.C. next semester so it got me excited to start living there. It’s not an edge of your seat drama but it’s more of a “How will he get out if this one?”
While I wait on the second season to come out in February, I’ve decided to start watching the show Sherlock. It’s a modern adaptation of Sherlock Holmes and comes at an appropriate time since I’ve begun reading a collection of Sherlock Holmes short stories. It sounds nerdy, I know, but it makes me feel pretentious.
So today the residence halls officially closed which means if you’re an RA you have to inspect rooms and check out residents. But, of course I waited until the last minute to pack and empty my trash so that’s how I spent my last night on campus. I stayed up until 1 packing and dancing around my room. When I decided to take out my trash, there was seriously a mountain of trash in the trash room. I guess everyone else had the same idea as me to pack late too! I eventually fell asleep and had to wake up at 6 to check out one of my residents.
I also have breaking news in my life… I got rid of my Justin Bieber cardboard cutout. He was a great roommate but we had our differences. I will hopefully be replacing him next semester. I can’t decide if I should get a new cardboard cutout or get a plant. I’ll probably get a plant so I can perform experiments on it #strange.
The unnecessary amount of trash in the trash room.
