So I have managed to hurt myself, yet again! I was lucky enough to get my ankle caught in a moving elliptical machine. OH yeah, I’m that good. There is currently an ice pack around my ankle, courtesy of my roomie’s friend. Thank you, kind person who does not know me! I also made another visit to the doctor today, for my sad little elbow. She seems to think I have nerve damage. Yaaay me. NOT.
Anyways! I am starting to learn the advantages of any event with the word, “free” somewhere in it. Free food = more money in your pocket. Free t-shirts = longer time to not do laundry. So there has been free food this week for me, which also provides social time with new groups. It’s quite fun. Also: free movies at the Union on Thursdays. Who doesn’t like a free movie?
Also: Do not underestimate the power of the Snuggie. Yes, they look ridiculous, and yes, many people say that a robe will suffice. However, it is not my back that is cold; my arms are. Therefore, the Snuggie is a solution to my problems. It’s also very soft. Ha ha. I sound like I am trying to persuade y’all to obtain one of these. Well, I am!!! By the waaaaay… They come in a variety of colors. *cough, cough* Buy the UT Snuggie! And if your doggie is cold, well whaddaya know?! By golly, there’s one for man AND woman’s best friend! Ha ha ha. Ok, I’m done, I promise!
Last Monday we had a UTPD officer come by and give us some great safety tips, and a humorous look into some of the petty crimes that happen. No campus is perfect, but many thefts and such can be prevented just by following the rule: don’t bring along anything you’re not prepared to lose. That is, unless it is required. Common sense also plays a big role too, just sayin’.
Future Horns: Prepare yourself for class registration! It’s a wild frenzy! That’s the class I want! *click!* Sorry, your class has been filled. Since this is the second time I’ve registered, I’m a bit better at it than I was the first time around. I learned that it is important to continually check desired classed to see if they’re full, and ALWAYS have back-ups. This I did not know the first time around. It’s a rather important detail that I was not told.
Alas, it is time for me to depart! Have a fantastical week everyone! <3 you all!
I shall end on a quote from a dear friend: “I hate when I’m running through the woods and Abercrombie takes pictures of me!” ;D
