Today I would just like to note that I have managed to have three consecutive meals in the dorm dining hall. Lunch and dinner yesterday, and lunch today. Alas, I shall break my streak, since I won't return to my dorm until after the dining hall has closed tonight, but still! Three in a row! That's a lot! I'm becoming all manage-ful of my time and such.
I just had lunch with Liz, a junior who lives down the hall from me, and Brian, also a junior, who lives somewhere in Mojo but not on my hall. He has a very badly broken leg. It was very pleasant. We spoke about the pros and cons of roommates (Liz has a single, Brian has a triple), and also about the unpleasantness of those certain persons who get too far into the frat/sorority mentality.
The Michigan 'Greek Life' slogan is "Letters Today.... Leaders Tomorrow." Yesterday I saw a kid wearing a tshirt that said "Fifths Today... Liters Tomorrow. Fuck Frats." I almost choked on my own laughter when I saw it. Yes, these things amuse me.
Yesterday in my Human Being class we had 10 minute meetings with the teacher to discuss our manifestos (don't ask). Which is all well and good. Except that the class is 3 hours long, and she took longer than 10 minutes with each person, but it still left everyone with the better part of 3 hours free. But we were not allowed to go home. So we sat around in the classroom chatting and being angry. I spent almost the entire time talking to Shlomo, Paul, Joe, and José Thomàs, so that was fun, but still. It would've been better if I had been back at the dorm, doing, say, laundry.
There is currently a loud phone conversation in my room pertaining to the fact that we don't have all the channels on our TV. Personally I could exist quite merrily without excessive TV (all I've used it for thus far is to watch the Lions games on Sundays), but alas, my opinion is not shared in this room. Not much of a TV person, me.
Yes, this was a boring blog, wasn't it? I'm sorry, I haven't anything more interesting to say, but I felt like blogging. To compensate, here's a critter for you.
'tis a pygmy marmoset. he's wee titchy small.
