Tuesdays Are Awesome

Tuesdays are the days I delete all the random files on my computer, the days I browse the internet and read all of my favorite websites, and think about life.

TUESDAY REALIZATIONS:

  • Being a college professor would be great. I talked to my don about this, and basically I would graduate from SLC and then go to Grad School at Mill's College and then teach psychology or educational theory (if such a thing exists). I also considered being a high school teacher, which would be equally awesome, but I don't know how I'd deal with obstinate teenagers. This would take additional training and work (extensive reading of "The Art of War") but if I could handle high school, I'd totally do it, because there is something crazy and gritty about public high schools that I would love to be a part of. 
  • Homes can be messy. While browsing "interior design" on Tumblr, I became frustrated when I realized that every single home pictured on the site was SPOTLESS. Empty floors, white walls, too clean. Last week I visited a friend's dorm room in Dudley Lawrence and it was by far one of the best furnished rooms I have ever seen. And what I liked MOST was that it had a "lived in" feel. It was homey without being messy-gross. It was charming and comfortable and classy. I considered redecorating my own room, but a) my money is for food only and b) my room is a temporary living space. By the time I move in, it will be time to move out. Luckily, I don't spend a lot of time in my room anyway, but it's probably because it's empty, poorly furnished, and littered with empty cardboard boxes. 
  • The Pub is my second home. Since my room is a pretty depressing place to spend my time, I've been spending most of my time in The Pub (a dining option on campus [it isn't really a pub, its kind of like Subway. Kind of.]). I order a sandwich and do homework and often end up inventing dance moves with Lil Snuggz of Cleveland. 
  • I have a lot of lines to memorize. I am in a play called "Vilna's Got A Golem". It's kind of like "Inglorious Basterds" meets "The Three Strooges". And my sister will be visiting SLC when it goes up.  So I must know all of my lines, or else she will make fun of me and tell Mom and Dad that Connor truly is "First Born, Second Best." 
LOOK ITS MY CHOREOGRAPHER/LOVER?
Yup. True life.

BLAHG: Authors and Eye Twitching

Hola chicos.

Again, bored out of my brain. There is no way out, so I'm going to blog.

Things That Bother Me:
  • When people ask me what I'm reading. Whenever I ask this, I immediately regret it because no matter what they say, I am not interested. HOWEVER, I am going to tell you that I read a great book (A Sense of Direction by Gideon Lewis-Kraus) and I loved it and HOT DIGGITY DOG my psych teacher e-mailed him and now he's coming to talk to our class TOMORROW. Can't handle it. My school is awesome. That is all. 
  • My left eye is twitching. I looked up causes of eye-twitching online and honestly the entire Sarah Lawrence student body should have the same problem. 
"Anyone can have an eye twitch from time to time without an identifiable cause, such as a disease or condition. Occasionally, a cause for eye twitching can be identified. In those cases, eyelid spasms may be associated with or prolonged by 
      • Alcohol
      • Caffeine
      • Fatigue
      • Irritation of the eye surface or inner eyelids
      • Lack of sleep
      • Physical exertion
      • Smoking
      • Stress"
From "http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/eye-twitching/MY00102/DSECTION=causes

  • Scalloped potatoes in Bates looked good, tasted poor. So I buried them in salad (I am typing this in Bates, and I want to take a photo of myself holding up my plate, but I am worried that everyone in this room is going to judge me hardcore). 
  • Trying to look natural. Notice the potatoes beneath the more edible leafy greens. 
  •  Bit into a potato on accident. Upset. 
  • Eye twitching. RJFHASDJGAJGVA
Things That Are Awesome: 
  • Ned. Grad student who is a good friend of mine. He just sat down to eat dinner with me.
"First time I threw up my mom yelled at me for ruining the carpet. So she handed me a bucket and told me to clean it up." - Ned
  • Cloud Nine. I'm in a play. It is probably why I am not getting sleep. But I get to play three characters, one of which is a four year old girl. I am surprised at how easy it is to play this part. 

  • EYE TWITCHING IS NOT AWESOME BUT IT IS HAPPENING NOW.
I have to go to rehearsal. And eat. So peace out.
