Listen, I’m reeeeally messy. I keep the kitchen and living room and other such common areas clean, I assure you. But my room.
Don’t get me started on my room.
Okay, I’m started on my room. I think my brain has a one-track mind, like a rhinoceros stampeding the water hole. When I get back from class, I have to move on to the next thing. That means my coat gets thrown on my bed, and I take my shoes off and leave them sitting in the middle of the floor, then my backpack gets similarly abandoned.
Every time I stop and try to clean my room, I feel like I need to be studying, or doing something worthwhile. I’m not really the kind of person who requires a completely clean space to function. I definitely like a clean space, but it’s not enough to talk myself into cleaning.
On breaks and things, I actually like cleaning things up, especially in my room at home. But my next biggest problem is that I have too much stuff and very little organizational skills. At least when it comes to stuff. I swear I can organize notes like a champ.
And, in my defense, I didn’t get a chance to unpack my laundry and things from Thanksgiving break (I’ve been living out of laundry bags), and I will be leaving in less than a week. Why take it all out when it’s just going home?!
In more important news, here’s a sneak peak of Christmas at the Zoo!

All right, folks, here’s what’s been happening.
My Thanksgiving break was fabulous. The burn mark on my index finger that was sustained during the Great Roll Tragedy ’10 has scabbed and peeled off. There is no word yet on if I will have a cool scar or not. I will keep you updated.
I haven’t unpacked from Thanksgiving break yet. Clusters week was like being at Wal-Mart on Black Friday at 2 AM, only prolonged and with more jabs at my self-esteem. Luckily, I made out like a bandit with one of my grades. It was like buy one get one free iPhones on Blackboard.
After clusters, I met up with my friend Mark to play more Halo: Reach. We almost saved Reach from total annihilation from the alien Covenant army. Then I had to leave.
(Spoiler alert, again: Everybody dies anyway.)
The rest of the weekend was spent lazing around and watching the snow. Saturday night, my roommate Kass invited us to go with her parents and her 2 and a half year old niece to see Christmas at the Indianapolis Zoo! There weren’t that many animals out, of course (in fact, it’s really insane that people were out in the cold!), but we saw a few troopers. The best part was when we walked up to an empty enclosure, and suddenly a grizzly bear sauntered out from behind a rock and stared at us. He was all “You kids get offa’ my lawn!”
THEN. THEEEN. They had a dolphin holiday show!!! I’ve never seen dolphins in real life before (except for off in the distance while at the beach), so I was unnecessarily excited about this.
Basically, the zoo is awesome with Christmas lights, but don’t forget those chemical hand warmer pouches. They are essential.
This is a Pudgy Kitty. This will be me in a week.
