Winter Break Obsessions

So over Winter break I haven’t been doing much but working and watching a lot of TV shows. My roommate keeps getting me addicted to different shows and it is really bad, because that’s all I do now. Here are the three latest shows that I can not stop watching!

#1. Parks and Recreation
This show is based in Indiana and is about a local parks department and the crazy things they go through. At first I was not super interested in it, but now it just keeps getting funnier and funnier. I finally caught up to where they are currently. I can not wait until new episodes air!

#2. Walking Dead
Every time the Walking Dead is on TV my Twitter feed blows up. A lot of people I know watch it so I thought I would start. I’m not really into the whole zombie thing but I thought I would give it a try with this show. Now I am officially addicted to this show. It is pretty intense but I like it a lot. I have not caught up with this show yet. I am dog sitting right now and watching this show in a house by yourself kind of freaks me out.

#3. Greek
Greek is an old show, but my roommate has got me addicted to this as well. I like this show because I can relate to it! It reminds me a lot of Greek life at Butler to a certain extent. We are not as crazy as them, but some of the things are what I love about Greek life! This show has six seasons so it may take me a while to finish it!

Obviously when I get back to school it will take me longer to finish shows considering I will have to be studying and doing other things besides watching TV, but until then I will try and watch as much as possible!

Blizzard 2012

Yesterday afternoon everyone started getting warnings on their phones and on TV that we would be under a blizzard warning. Typically I don’t take these very seriously because half of the time it never happens.

This morning when I woke up at 8 AM to get ready for work the roads did not look to bad, but after getting called off of work and seeing outside get relatively worse I realized that we would be getting a ton of snow. Currently it almost seems like a whiteout because the wind is so strong that the snow is blowing everywhere. The only thing that makes me happy about this blizzard is that I do not have to work!

Outside my window, it may not look that bad, but the snow is blowing everywhere and still falling!

Unfortunately I am not like every other kid. I hate snow, unless it involves snowboarding. I would rather this just be a ton of rain. For now though it seems that most of Indianapolis is basically shut down. We are currently on an orange alert from the mayor meaning that employers should send employees home and also that only emergency vehicles are being asked to be on the roads.

While this blizzard continues, which by the way we are expected to get 10-15 inches (Bloomington which is about an hour away already has 11.5 inches) I will be laying in my bed all day and watching Parks and Recreation. I have started this a couple days ago and have all most caught up, so I guess that is the plus with this blizzard.
