I honestly don't even know why I bothered asserting this month was going to be BAMF. I really thought, back on April 1st, that this month was going to be different. I really did, blog readers. But. We're already 24 days and only 7 blog posts in - that's not even 1 post every 3 days. So I apologize for being lazy and unmotivated to write, but only a little.
I am T-minus 49 days to graduation. Which means I am less than 49 days away from presenting and turning in my senior thesis project to a group of academic advisers and peers, and I have only just barely started. My research symposium is on Love & Attraction, so our thesis projects are required to stem out of that. Naturally, since I live in the Internet, I am doing my project on Otherness - the people who willingly choose to enter into long distance relationships and cultivate those relationships through social media such as YouTube (and how there is a stigma around that lifestyle choice if you're anyone BUT those of us who live like this). Utilizing YouTube and my friends for legit research, +10 points!
Anyway, I'm in a focus group/2 credit course for people doing nontraditional projects (ie. I want to make a video rather than write a stuffy old paper) and today was the "kick in the pants" "get going or you will suffer" day, so my head is full of ideas and methods of action, and eventually I might even solicit a few questions for you guys to answer if you wouldn't mind helping me out. I just haven't figured out exactly what I am doing yet.
Anyway, in non-boring, non-school related news, I am going to my friend Mallory's wedding tomorrow. This will be the first wedding I have attended of someone I met on YouTube, so that's pretty exciting. I'm carpooling with Kayley and am looking forward to it a lot.
Oh, haha. There is this piece of paper sitting here beside me on my desk that I wanted to tell you guys about. When I was flying home from Kansas City on Sunday, I was browsing through SkyMall and laughing at all the ridiculous items for sale.. when I found literally the best thing I have ever seen offered in this silly magazine.
"Sling Couture Fashion Face Mask".
The description says: "An FDA approved fashion facial mask for H1N1 offers the same protection as traditional masks against germs, bacteria and airborne pathogens that cause the flu, and changes a normally unsightly medical mask into a beautiful fashion statement! Sling Couture allows users to be stylish and protected when traveling. Available in 11 luxurious fabrics."
...right, because everyone wants to walk around with a disco ball over their mouth.
What do you think, guys? Is this going to be the next big fashion statement? Do you want to be stylish AND protected?
I'm falling behind in my TV shows, so I am going to go catch up on Gossip Girl now. I've been watching the new Doctor Who season as well, and am really enjoying Matt Smith and Karen Gillan; especially their chemistry together. Have any of you been watching?
To motivate me to update this more often, you guys should leave me some questions about random things you'd either like to know about me or would like my opinion on. I promise I wont let it sit for weeks and weeks like I do on Formspring. Haha.
