As I outlined Sunday, I did a lot of traveling yesterday. From one bed to another, it took 29 hours. By the time I reached my bed here in Calgary, it was about 3 in the morning, which is why I did not post yesterday.
I have handed in my last assignment before the Christmas break today! *Insert generic celebratory onomatopoeia here*
Today also marks the end of my first successful week of daily blogging! I think that’s a personal record, if you don’t include Tumblr. I don’t.
You know what I just realized right now while writing this? I’m listening to music on my laptop and my earbuds are in my ears, but they aren’t plugged in. I’m just listening to the music on the speakers with pointless earbuds on.
Okay I fixed that.
I’m still finding my footing, but I’d say it’s been a great first week! As of last night, I have had 10 likes on my blog and fourteen followers (some who are just spam and one who is me, but they all count). So thank you for reading this if you are (or will be) one of the people who like what I’m doing on here.
I did some thinking and I came up with a posting schedule for the different kinds of posts I’ll be putting up here. I have something different for every day of the week, and–like yesterday–I may put two up in a day on occasion. I’ll reveal what type of posts each day is going to have as I go along this week. For Fridays, I’m going to be doing something I call Weeklies! Basically, I summarize my week with a few things I love from that week.
Here are today’s Weeklies:
– Arrow Midseason Finale
It cut the head off of the other shows with season finales and overshadowed it’s own crossover with Flash, just saying.
– Any Other World by MIKA
– Interstellar (2014, Dir. Christopher Nolan)
Filmed just outside my hometown. My sister was an extra but I don’t think she actually shows up in the final film. At least she got to meet Matthew McConaughey.
– IT guys
True life savers, each and every one.
– My sparkly shirt from TopShop
I can’t find it on the website, so I must’ve gotten it on sale. I probably wouldn’t pay full price for such a shiny shirt anyway.
It’s the only thing keeping me sane when I think back to my unfinished bedroom at home. (I also have plans for the garden shed. Don’t tell my dad, he still thinks he’ll keep the lawnmower in there.)
That’s all for today! Come back tomorrow to see what kind of posts I will put up on Saturdays!
My dorm room is pretty standard. I have a fixed bed, desk, wardrobe, and shelves. I’m lucky enough to have a small en-suite and the building itself only opened last year so I am the second person to occupy this space. It’s about half the size of last year’s dorm, including the en-suite (last year’s had none). The desk doesn’t wobble and I can’t hear the footsteps of my neighbours, so I’d say it’s a good room. But when it comes to decorating, I have to think about a lot of things.
All of my decorations need to be easily brought back to Canada with me. University housing has some sort of vendetta against blue tac, so I can’t use that. Too much paper on the walls will be considered a fire hazard and will get me in trouble. To top it all off, my room is really small.
But I did not let any of that get in the way!
