So does anyone remember the days when we were counting down the days to leave?
Well, i’m happy to report that things have changed drastically since then. Most of us no longer address the number of days we have left anymore. We just keep holding tightly on to every second that we have left together. It’s hard to imagine life out of UM’s School of Communication/ Hecht dorm walls again.
At this very moment, everyone sits silently either blogging, surfing the web, or just trying to wake up before we go finish up editing our videos for the rest of the day. Christina, Kristy, and I are working on Zenglen’s video and it is coming out amazing. Today we’re going to put the final touches to it and try to improve it as best as we can. We’re all very excited to show it to everyone once it’s complete. You should see us in the Mac labs. Whenever something comes out right we just sit there and smile… occasionally we’ll yell, “We got this!”. It keeps us determined to keep going and do our absolute best.
Last night in the dorms we ordered Mexican food. Actually, I ordered chicken tenders from there so i’m not sure you can consider that Mexican. Oh well. Then later before going to bed, Melissa and I had our daily “before we go to bed” conversation. We reminiced about all the things we used to love when we were little and we realized that there was this annoying green light at the ceiling of our dorm room. We laughed endlessly.
Until, of course, we heard an extremely obnoxious noise. It sounded like chairs upstairs being pulled back and forth across the floor. Not for one minute, not for two, but an extended period of time. “The boys,” I thought. So after running up there and finding the boys running around laughing their heads off [at the fact that they kept us from sleeping] , we finally got some rest.
And, here I am the next morning. Chartwells in my stomach. Ready to get back to work!
