Before i was in college I absolutely refused to eat leftovers of any kind. Call me spoiled or whatever you like, I just hated to eat it. Lets just say coming to college breaks down a lot of barriers. I had the opportunity to go to two different Thanksgiving dinners and I made sure to get as much food as possible to take back to my res hall. For the past two weeks I’ve had nothing but turkey, stuffing, and broccoli and cheese casserole to eat. My perspective of eating leftovers has totally changed and just about the only reason I make it through the day without spending money. My mom use to always say that I would eat her out of house and home and now I can see where she is coming from.

I just took a quiz that told my Star Wars name. Neato.
I really like how the cover of our campus newspaper, The Shorthorn, says, “Mild winter weather expected”. Oh, really? Mild? It’s FA-REEZING. I’m dreaming of Mild. Because of El Nino, it’s supposed to get warmer. Yay for that! I opened up the newspaper about 3 minutes ago and a special little piece of paper fell out. A coupon…to the bookstore. That’s right! Definitely something to hold onto. The last time a coupon fell out of The Shorthorn, my best friend, Alex, used it as wrapping paper for our office Christmas party.
The madness happened yesterday afternoon here in Davis Hall. MavElite and White Elephant are like Marco and Polo…Peas and Pods…Meat and Potatoes…Jim and Pam…special. There was an “Edward Scissorhands” DVD and a scarf being stolen like crazy. Then…there was a manicure set. I won’t say what the gender is of the young gentleman person that fought for it…but it was very good.
“Very good” is my new favorite phrase. My room mate and I were filling out an evaluation for our PolySci class and we laughed at how some of the options to describe how our professor taught was “Excellent” and “Good”…then there was “Very good”. Does anyone ever say that? Unless describing a meal? “Hey, let’s go to a movie tonight!” “Very good!” Umm..no. So yes…it’s my new favorite phrase. I’m bringing it back…like Justin.
Today was the last day of classes. I’ll really miss my FIG class. That’s one of the classes I shared with my closest friends and I LOVE my teacher, or student PAL as he’s officially known. Oh, well! Next semester brings new adventures…and professors.
