Just a few days ago, I sat at my desk admiring all of the pretty pictures I had put up when I realized I have no pictures of my family. I then wondered what kind of person puts up prints of friends, cute animals, and scenery around the room, and forgets to bring one of family. I guess I'm just missing home. And it doesn't help that I'm skyping the people I miss. Seeing them does make me happy, but the moment I sign off, I start to miss them again.
Yesterday, a few friends and I went to Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica. That place is truly a shopper's paradise. I can't wait to keep exploring the different parts of LA. Public transportation isn't that bad...
I'm looking to buy a mini-fridge for my dorm room. Yes, I know it's late, but whatever. I think I'm getting the Haier. At 4.0 cubic feet, it's around $140. If you know of a cheaper one, or one that comes in colors other than black, white, and silver, please let me know.
Michelle left a comment on my Facebook that said she and Dennis are coming to LA this weekend! This couple of lines on my wall made my entire day. I asked Alex to come down with them. Ohhh, I'm so excited!
So I know it's bad to complain about roommates, but I just woke up not to my alarm clock, but to a conversation being held by my roommates at 9am. Now I love both of them, but do they really need to speak so loudly in the morning? I personally really enjoy quiet mornings when I'm lost in thought, undisturbed by other voices. And I'm completely disoriented in the morning, so anything I try to say would come out kind of funny anyways... Plus, there is a reason I scheduled my first class for 11am. I'm really not a morning person. That is all.
The USB cord hasn't moved since my last post. Pictures still to come later.
The UC quarter system doesn't allow us to take Columbus Day off. This means two things:
1) Michelle/Dennis/Alex can't visit.
2) For the first time in the history of my education, I have to go to school on Columbus Day.
