I’m exporting pictures from Lightroom and flickr is their next stop, I promise. And for once I don’t have a million other things to do so hopefully I can actually do it and not just say it. AARGH.
I love my new dorm, it’s super social and friendly. :) Everyone is really nice and easy to talk to. Which is part of why I’ve been so bad at sitting down to actually update you all.
Move in crew was exhausting and there was this really great/awkward/hilarious moment where this girl unlocked her door and her roommate had moved in the day before and said roommate was curled up in bed with a guy. So this girl’s parents are there and a handful of kids from move in crew and the roommate + guy are totally passed out. I didn’t look too closely, but Marc swore up and down that the girl was naked under her blankets. I bet they had a nice little chat when she woke up.
Classes seem alright so far. My Extinction professor is Rob Scott, and on the syllabus he asked to be called Professor Scott or Dr. Scott, and of course this scene from Rocky Horror was all I could think of. I also have a lot of wackadoodle writing assignments for that class, including a short paper about the movie X-Men: First Class and its views on evolution, group editing/creation of a Wikipedia page, and a short piece of fiction written in a certain style.
My roommate has an identical twin (which I knew), but I got to meet her a few days ago when they went home for Rosh Hashanah. So my roommate is Emily, and her twin is Jessica, and we had a floor meeting that night that she came, so they both went to the floor meeting. Jessica has slightly shorter hair, so Emily (a different Emily who lives down the hall from us) asked “Emily” if she had cut her hair, and then mid-sentence looks over and notices the real Emily sitting next to her and she does a double take with a hilarious expression on her face. I was almost crying, I was laughing so hard.
And then they did the twin thing to me, too. I came back to the room and one of them is sitting at Emily’s desk, and I didn’t think it was Emily, but I wasn’t sure, and then I noticed the hair and I was like, “Wait, you’re not Emily.” So they didn’t fool me. It’s gonna be really bad if their hair is ever the same length though.
