“The End Of An Era”

All my other roommates had seen every episode, so I thought hey, I’ll make use of my summer by watching all 10 seasons of Friends. People this is 238 episodes in 75 days and I can now proudly say that I have seen every episode of the show, including every gag reel and special feature.
It’s a funny thing really. I never thought I’d be one of those people. One of those people who refers to these characters as if they are an actual person who is apart of their life. I’d be hanging out with Trevor and something he said would remind me of an episode. I’d say, “Last week Ross did this… or Chandler said this…” It was so fun to watch these characters grow and to watch these relationships between them evolve. I have to admit that I cried during The Last One, realizing that I didn’t want the story to end. I wanted to see so badly what was going to happen next.

Now having seen them all I have to say that I feel quite knowledgeable about the show and the characters. I can now refer to specific scenes and quotes, and laugh about all my favorite moments.  I love friends and I am so glad that I spent my summer with them.

I feel like there is more that I should say about this topic… but for now that’s all I’ve got.

The One Where They’re Up All Night

This is why I try to never workout late at night. Despite the fact that we only got 5 minutes into the warm-up before Trevor got another caffeine headache, my body was so energized that I COULD NOT sleep once I got back to my apartment.

First I called Trevor to tell him goodnight.

Then I took a shower. (Both normal parts of my bedtime routine.)

Next I went on facebook for a little while thinking I would sleep after that.

The problem with that was, I wasn’t feeling tired AT ALL. I was actually really hungry.

Maybe I should finished the disc of Friends I started earlier today…

Still wide awake.

By this time it was almost 2 in the morning and after exploring pinterest for a while I thought reading 15 pages on Fmylife.com would be a good idea.

Not a good idea.

This only made matters worse because now I was LQTM (Laughing Quitely To Myself) in an empty apartment.

By this time I was really really super hungry, and despite my better judgement I went to taco bell at 3am.

I left the apartment building surprised to see so many people also awake at this hour and I wasn’t exactly comfortable with it.

I got my #8 and sat in the living room to watch the next disc of Friends thinking I would surely fall asleep there.

At 5:30am I was still awake.

I laid on the couch… forcing myself not to get up, in fear that maybe I would become even less tired.

I did not touch the TV… I did not touch the hall light… I just laid there.

“Fall asleep, Mary.” I thought to myself. “You have no choice now. NO, you will NOT watch another disc of Friends, the sun might be up by the time that’s over.”

So I tried to close my eyes. What I thought was 2 minutes went by and I looked at my phone.

It was 9:04. “Thank goodness! I slept for 3 hours!”

Ok let’s try to do that again. Maybe I could sleep all day.

Open my eyes… 9:47 … close my eyes

Open my eyes… 10:18 … close my eyes

10:50 Gargi left the apartment… close my eyes

11:20 Gargi returns, asks me questions. I’m up, there is nothing I can do about this now.

Go back to bed. I’m still not sleepy.

Now I’m blogging about it.

A Little Productivity

So I realized that I’ve been so into my new pinterest thing that I have not been blogging. To make up for lost time I’ll update you on what you’ve missed.
Finals went well, on the day of my last one (Art History) Trevor and Corey and I went to the Rangers game. Due to lightning we got to move to any seats that we wanted! We got super close, it was awesome only paying $10 and getting to sit in $75 seats. When lightning comes you can guess what came next- rain, and LOTS of it.

The rain was crazy and let me tell you, the clouds outside... were menecing.

The game was called of in the middle of the 4th. Even so, we had a great time. We ate at Bone Daddy’s afterwords and mmm I love that pulled pork with mac cheese. YUM! After words we went bowling and Mike came too.
I did well on my grades: 2 A’s and 3 B’s. I’m glad it’s done so I have a bit of a break before summer 1 startes up in June.
I was productive in cleaning and organizing my room this week. I used my container store gift card from Trevor’s mom to get a few things I needed.

I got a bin for my bags so now they aren't just stcked up on top of my art stuff.

I got this cute magnetic strip to hold more photos!

After organizing and cleaning I also updated some things in my room. Like my corkboard and my picture line.

Missing Florida, I put up some of my favorite pics from the vacations in the years past. And I also added in some new things as well. Like Trevor and I with our ice cream and invitations for the weddings coming up.

Before, this large poster frame held a black and white poster I bought when I moved into Kerr. Now, it holds a new poster I painted on brown paper that I got for free. And I also updated some of the pictures below

So there is a little tid bit into my first week of summer. More to come.

Tangled Elephants

Haha Gotcha didn’t I?
Today Trevor said he wanted to stop by because he had something to give me… He surprised me with the Dvd “Tangled” and I was so excited! I told him the moment I saw a sign that it was coming out that I was going to ask for it for my birthday. “Why would you have to wait all the way till your birthday?” he asked. “Well I’m not just going to buy it. lol” Anyway, I was very happy that he came in the pouring rain just to bring it to me at my apartment. That was so sweet and thoughtful of him.

Later on tonight, the girls and I went to the movies and saw “Water for Elephants” for some roommate bonding time. I finished the book just before it came out and I was pleased with the movie. Of course it wasn’t as good as the book because they left some parts out, but still it was good. I knew when I saw the preview I was going to love the cimematography, art direction, costume design and the animals, but it was a bit graphic for my taste. I didn’t really enjoy seeing the violent parts, as I never do, because then I have those images in my head. So I might just fall asleep tonight watching Tangled.
