Just another manic Monday

Today was… meh. Led an athletics tour (laugh all you want, I was positively fantastically mediocre), ran around, inspired some serious awesomeness before the Fall Fling (featuring the Blue Scholars, Dyno Jamz and Common Market), ran around some more, and came home.

My evening was positively exciting: two loads of dishes, three loads of laundry, a few quarts of homemade chicken stock from last night’s roast, another batch of chai, and two different kinds of soup (both of which were ultimately vetoed in favor of Thai 65 leftovers).

Also, I found out that I can quickly and effectively bribe myself out of trouble with macadamia nuts…

So today started off kind of rocky…went to my Dawg Daze volunteer shift for the Honors Open House only to find the office dark, locked and totally abandoned… I waited around for an hour, but no one else showed so I finally left… I’m super annoyed that I drove all the way up there for nothing, but whatever, it was nice being on campus, I guess.

In other news, I went to see Wicked with Levi tonight and it was super frickinamazingawesomeEPIC. I’ve been in love with the soundtrack since it was first released, didn’t really enjoy the book, and hadn’t seen the production — until tonight! Hit up Molly Moon’s in Wallingford on the way home (Mmm Theo Chocolate + Salted Caramel… I love having someone to share with!) for the perfect end to an awesome evening.

Today was… crazy (in case you couldn’t tell by the really late post). Got up, moved the hydrangeas from the front patio into the ground, ran up to the Wells-Medina nursery (they’s SO fantastic there!) and bought container plants (to replace the aforementioned hydrangeas). Hopped in the shower and drove up to school for one of the major Dawg Daze events – the first annual Rock Band competition (Beatles edition) and Late Night Breakfast + Rocky Horror Picture Show — it was totally epic. I froze my butt off (despite a blanket, sweater and Northface fleeze… ugh) but it was so worth it! 50 or so people came in costume, everyone was shouting and dancing — it was perfect =)

Ahh yes, the song lyrics are back– and quite appropriate. Today was the last day of residence hall move-in; all of the freshmen are safely tucked away in their little rooms, free to prowl the U District at all hours of the day or night – muahahaha!

Okay, I guess this is true, but come on- really? Anyway, ran around volunteering for Dawg Daze, helped out with Residence Hall check-in and got to hang out with my mentee all day (he’s pretty much, um, awesome — be jealous)

Rapunzel, Rapunzel!

Okay, not really. Gerberding Hall used to be the administration building on campus but now also houses the Graduate School.

So today was the first real day of Autumn, but it was a brilliant 86F with blue skies, a light breeze – it was GORGEOUS- so naturally, I was stuck inside at a training session. Ugh. I really have nothing against training sessions like this, but I did it last year and the program was practically identical and twice as painful as the first around.

In any case, came home and took a nap, woke up, steam-cleaned my shower, peeled blue tape off my trim and put the rest of my room back together… not sure if I’m excited for school yet or not… oops…
