I hope you all appreciated my rap yesterday. I hope that one day I get my rap skillz up to the calibur of the great Bill Cosby ( WHO APPARENTLY IS STARTING A RAP CAREER!?!).
I mean, we both eat ice cream the same way, so I think we’d be a perfect rapping match? Amirightoramiright?!
But meanwhile, back at the ranch!
It’s a mixed subject when it comes to decorating your dorm as a college student. “Where should I put my Che Guevara poster?” and “Where should I put my 3 foot hookah?” are two questions that might plague the students of many colleges, especially my own, where the scent of patchouli permeates the air and you can hear the pitter-patter of Birkenstocks far and wide.
All I can say is that I’m definitely not the minimalist when it comes to decorating. I’m surprised that people don’t get seizures when they see my corner of the room:
Where the magic happens, as in where I listen to my Harry Potter wizard podcasts in secret and eat most of my peanut butter stash. Please take note of the fabulous pink Slanket my mother got me that has Changed. My. Life. and modeled by RoommateWendy below:
My desk is actually where the real magic happens, as in where I watch 30 Rock reruns and color in my coloring books. Ah, the life of the college student whose schedule is miraculously easy first semester. ❤
Still confused as to why I have a smiley faced banana peel on my desk?Oh, I can explain. It’s real love.
prison dorm walls can tend to not get your fancy tickled, as hospital walls aren’t really all that majestic to look at, enter my Wall of ADHD. It’s mostly covered in postcards from my penpals (Dork!) motivational words o’ wisdom, Hilary Duff (What can I say? She’s motivating!) and my muse, Tina Fey.
Yes, that really does say “PRAISE BE TO TINA!”. I’m hell bent on meeting her, being her BFF and evah and evah and going on coffee dates with her, talking about boys, life and Tracy Morgan until we wet ourselves in laughter and /or have a pillow fight.
Welcome to Tchotchke-ville, Population: I’m too embarrassed to say:
The Infamous Quote board. When you live with 3 other girls and multitudes of other nomads, there are bound to be a ridiculous amount of stupid stuff said. Take note of my “I’m not gonna lie, peanut butter and Harry Potter are deal breakers for me” quote gem.
Outside of Tchotchkeville, there is a wonderful peaceful land called MarissaandClaire’s Utopia, where happiness and cleanliness coexist as one:
….and proof that we actually do work here at New College, not just underwater basket weaving and tree hugging! These books were for ONE paper, beeteedubs.
I hope you all enjoyed my little impromptu tour guide of my little hovel that is the place where all the magic happens in terms of me coloring for hours, pretending to study, as well as hoping that my acceptance letter to Hogwarts got lost in the mail and that I in fact am a witch.
Love love love!
