Superheroes + Other tidbits

Good news! 

I finally caved this morning and bought a new camera charger!

That's not the best news. I mean, it was $30. I so missed my camera.

Because of that, I've got some random events to recap.


1. I can't remember why I decided to take this,  but that is my favorite pastry at my favorite coffee shop, studying for one of my favorite classes. (That's an almond butter croissant, by the way. It makes me believe in miracles.)

2. My roommate Jess made us some delicious spaghetti. FALSE! They are cupcakes. It was probably the tastiest April Fool's prank ever.


3. We went to a karaoke bar to celebrate the boy's birthday! I did not expect him to get up and sing. It was wonderfully entertaining.



4. Katie dropped her earring down our sink, so we attempted to save it. No. We suck. So Thomas had to do it, and he succeeded! And Katie has both earrings.



5. Meet Nemo. He is a butterfly with a broken wing that my roommate brought back from the daycare she works at. He likes to eat strawberries and perch on her foot while she walks around.


6. The roommates and I trekked over to the campus church center for a "Women's appreciation dinner" hosted by various boys. It was lots of fun. They fed us pasta and chocolate and performed magic tricks. The order is finally restored to the planet.


7. This one's a long story, but let's just say it involved a drunk, confused kid, five cops and sleep deprivation. All is well, but it's our fault that most of the people on our floor woke up to pounding on their doors.


8. And finally, last night was the belated birthday party for Tom! It was superhero themed. He created an owl costume for me, Katie was "Super Tired" because she ran a 6 mile race thing that morning, Jess was "Super Jess," courtesy of the children at her daycare, and Tom was Clash.

Katie and me, being domestic.

As you can see, we dueled. I was the villain.


Tom got a bunch of candy from the roommates.

Despite the sneak attack, he still lost the battle. Note the "pin the tail on the superhero" to the right.

Me, Katie and Jess. I love you Katie, please don't hurt me!
And after all that, we are inching our way to finals and summer. What?? When exactly did that happen? Did I sleep through March or something?

Happy Sunday!

Addiction

I have one week left at the newspaper. This year, at least.
I am officially next year's editor, as well.

I think this year has aged me a good decade. Soon I'll post about what I've learned over the past year (and it has been a big year, in more ways than one.) But for right now, I have other things to discuss. Important things.

Things I love right now:

1. Green tea. That would be the addiction mentioned in the post title. It wakes me up and makes me think really fast. And talk really fast. It's kind of fun.

2. Buying myself flowers as a "Congratulations, I can't believe you survived this year" present. 

3. Purple Essie nail polish in "To buy or Not to Buy." It makes me think of spring time.


AND now back to my scheduled Sunday night duties. Have a good week, everyone!

Absentee.

Hello there!

I have been M.I.A. for a bit around this here blog.

Well, there a few reasons for this:

1.) I lost my camera charger. So WHEN I find it, there will be lots of old pictures to put up. They will be all mismatched, but that's okay.

2.) The past few weeks have been horrendous. As will the next two weeks. But after that, things finally settle down. At least for a short while.

So, in short, I will be posting a few things here and there, but after all this nonsense I will be back! [Hopefully with photos.]

If only.

Happy almost finals time, everyone! If you have them, that is. If not, happy almost tax day!

To hell and back.

Hello, and happy April!

I'm a big fan of April. You're so close to summer, but you still have some time left with your friends (for us college folk.) But it's also not quite may, so you're not quite into finals season yet.

SIDE NOTE: AS I WRITE THIS, THERE IS A SCREAMING BIRD IN THE TREE RIGHT BY ME. IT'S ACTUALLY SCREAMING. IT NOW HAS THE ATTENTION OF THE ENTIRE QUAD. PLEASE BE OKAY, LITTLE GUY!

Anyway. So this past week was absolutely, without a doubt, one of the hardest weeks I have ever lived through. Ever. One of those weeks that forces you to sit online for two hours finding inspirational quotes.

I liked this one, btw. I wrote it in huge letters on my dry erase board:

"Success is not final, failure is not fatal. It is the courage to continue that counts."
Word, Churchill. Word.

To give you an idea, one the many things I survived was a major project that was due yesterday. And by major, I mean it took our group an hour and fifteen minutes to present–we even had to rush it–and we started working on it in early February. Killer. But that's done, and I am THRILLED.

Also, I got a new haircut! With bangs!



So...that made me happy. Every year, around the first of April, without fail, I chop my hair. Every. Single. Year.

So now a question for all of you: I am not the best at relaxing. Absolutely cannot do it. How do you unwind after a horrific week? 

Happy Spring!

:)
