Talk about an exciting week.
Because it was going to be my fathers 50th birthday that week I decided to go to the supermarket to get him a card. I had told the cashier that I didn’t need a bag thinking I could just carry it out. While I was leaving I realized there was a huge crowd directly outside the door – hiding from the rain (the last time I checked it was clear outside.) So I went back inside, grabbed a bag, pushed my way through the crowd and tried making my way to my car.
I was wearing sandals, good thing because the water was up to my ankles (I was walking ‘uphill’.) By the time I reached my 2nd destination, Radioshack, i had to ring out my hair and my shirt before walking in. Of course since it just started raining everyone looked at me as if I had just taken a shower fully clothed and decided it was a good time to run to the store.
To make a long story short, upon entering my dorm room I realized that big hole over my bed (conveniently not over my roommates – you can tell who made it to the dorm first on move in day) leaks. All over my bed and everything underneath. The school liked to call it a ‘flood’ (although I can’t say it was THAT bad – my roommate’s stuff was untouched)
After a lot of phone calls and emotional PMSing they moved me into the storage room in the ‘jock’ building which is notorious for smelling like a locker room. I had to move all of my stuff from the 2nd floor of my building, across the campus to the 2nd floor where the storage room is – by myself (I can’t carry much – there’s a reason why my boyfriend came to help move me in.)
I was not happy.
A few days later, with my moms help and a lot more phone calls I’m back in my original building, the ceiling and roof are both fixed AND i finally have internet!
So, I plan on blogging a lot more. (:
So you should expect to hear from me sometime this week. Maybe tomorrow.
P.S. sorry for the rant – a few of you were asking about me and I didn’t want to write this more than once so i figured BLOG.
Oh! And I’m thinking about posting some essays I write for school on here – what do you guys think about that? I’m taking some really interesting classes this semester: Elements of Reasoning, 19th Century Landscape Paintings, The Meaning of Life, Intro to Visual Arts & Feminist Art and Culture.
