A beautiful girl wakes up, and goes to take a shower. She returns to her room and whiffs an awful, horrible smell. Soon, she realizes this…smell…is coming from her Halloween pumpkin. The pumpkin she magnificently carved less than 48 hours earlier. She picks it up, and its rotten orange skin melts in her hands. Not because it’s in love with her, but because it is seeping pumpkin juice through the skin. It….is DEAD!
She searches her room for a bag to put it in, and settles on a sturdy paper bag with handles. She lets it sit in its doomed coffin while she finishes getting ready for class. As she leaves, she carries the bag down the hall. Suddenly, the bag becomes weightless. She looks at her feet in horror.
Pumpkin insides are everywhere. Rotten, gooey, dirty, orange mush on the floor. The paper bag is soaked through with the pumpkin’s juice. She picked up every piece of nastiness, carried it to the dumpster, washed her hands and went on with her day. And then she died.
Most of the above story is true, and happened to one Holli Gregg.
Most of you have seen the first version of my dorm tour. This is pretty much the same thing, except I cleaned up the room a little better and it’s decorated a little differently.
I’m blogging for DSU now. Basically it’s so that prospective students can read about what it’s like to be a student here, and it’ll be from a real student. Other colleges are doing this sort of thing. Kind of corny, and a little unorganized on DSU’s part, but that’s the way it goes. I should be getting paid to blog. Anyway, I’m putting this video tour up on that site, because I figured it would be beneficial to a student looking to come here. Enjoy, I guess.
Check out the video tour of my dorm room! I got inspired by Bryce‘s tours of the Philly apartment. Enjoy…!
Well, RA training is officially over. And students are officially moved in, or are moving in. I’m really excited about the whole RA staff. Training seemed to go really well and everyone meshed together pretty nicely.
Most of my residents are moved in now, and I’m looking forward to the year. (Although, I am extremely tired and am in the middle of fighting a sinus infection.) It’s always fun to meet new people and have new neighbors, etc.
I have some brand new classes and professors this year…so that brings a little anxiety into the mix. I don’t really have a job, I kind of do, but yeah, just kind of. Anyway, it’ll be nice to start off with little commitment to clubs, jobs, etc. I welcome it with open arms. I’m learning how to say “I really don’t have time to commit to that…” So, good for me. Check out the pictures from RA Training.
Today has been a day of a few “lasts” for me.
TODAY WAS THE LAST DAY…
…I will have a class period with Dr. Weinstein.
…I will buy an orange Powerade from the TC this semester.
…my residents could turn in forwarding address cards.
…I will do dishes this semester.
…I will play intramural softball with “I’m a bowling trophy”.
…I will work at KJAM.
Happy almost Cinco de Mayo!
