All of the liveblogging will wash this post away in a matter of seconds I’m sure. I’m gonna talk anyway, because my hands are tired from knitting and it’s a commercial break. So I’ll just type a little bit in between the predictable plot lines.
I think I have a serious shopping problem. It’s just that little rush of endorphins after I buy something, I’m hooked. I don’t even remember half the stuff I buy, because it’s online. Like today, I found this crocheted Sailor Moon doll, so I bought it. And yes it’s really cute and I’ll probs sleep with it every single night, but did I really need it? Or is there something better that I could have spent my money on? I’m sure there are things that I should be more pressed to buy, but I really really wanted it! Anyway, summer is starting in a week or so, and thankfully I’ll be working again (a lot) so it’s not as if I’ll be without money.
Plus I’ve bought some really useful things too! At least things that I think are useful..other people probably wouldn’t. I bought some summer clothes, recruitment dresses, new running shoes, a teeth whitening package! So yes, most of those are wants and not needs, but I don’t feel as if I’ve entirely wasted my money.
Last night my sorority had rooming assignments, and I got SUCH a good room, which is not typical of a first room, especially when you’re not rooming with upperclassmen, since we’re on a points system. But it happened. I got a fabulous room with people I can’t wait to live with. And honestly this is such a tsm but I cannot wait to decorate the shit out of that room. I’m thinking rope lights…it’s gonna be realallallally cute. And since I was the one who got the room because of my points, I get to pick what desk I want in the room! Which is awesome too.
Okay so last night was just a really busy night, because after rooming assignments we had this thing called Poems and Paddles, which is basically where you present your Big Sis with a paddle at the end of the year to thank her for everything she’s done for you. I’m not a very creative person, so I’m really proud of how it turned out and I think Katie liked it, so that’s all that mattered. And then after that I had to book it to the theatre to see Spring Awakening, which was absolutely amazing. It’s probably my favorite musical that I’ve seen live (only because I haven’t seen Rent live, I’ve only been in it). I liked it so much because there were seriously no parts that I disliked! Not a single one! It was beautiful.
One thing that did make me really make though, was that in the reprise of The Word Of Your Body (which is the gay scene) everyone was like continually laughing awkwardly. WHY WERE YOU LAUGHING. Like yes, there were certain parts that were built in for humor, but honestly you just watched a parallel scene that was amazingly beautiful, but now it’s suddenly so uncomfortable that you have to laugh? It makes me sad that people couldn’t see the same beauty in the reprise as they did the first time around.
Okay that’s all I have for now. But this has been my longest post I’ve written in a while, so be proud of me okay? Okay, I’ll talk to you later. Love you too. Okay bye. Wait did you hang up? No I don’t want to hang up first! No you hang up! No YOU hang up! Okay..okay..bye.
OKAY EVERYBODY. We're making a census for Potter heads on Tumblr. We're going to try to count exactly how many Potter heads are on Tumblr for 2011. All you have to do is REBLOG THIS if you are a Potter head.
And for some reason people wishing me a Merry Christmas or Happy Easter, or a joyous religiously affiliated holiday, just pisses me off. I know it’s meant well, and I really shouldn’t look into it that much, but who are you to assume anything about me or my religion? Yes, I am a Christian, but it just rubs me the wrong way. And yeah it’s different when someone knows me personally, and obviously knows what I believe or don’t believe in, but when someone at the register in Walgreens wishes me a happy Easter, I feel like they’re trying to push their religion onto me. Now if you’re wondering what I say to people during the festive month of December, I’ve always been a fan of the ambiguous ‘Happy Holidays’, but I don’t even say it that often! I think that religion is something personal that doesn’t need to be brought into everyday conversations. So from now on I’m going to leave my well-wishes in the capable hands of Chevy Chase, Jane Curtin, Jimmy Fallon and Tina Fey,
