Bet you thought I’d fallen back into a blogging coma?! No such luck.
Still here, still blogging, and getting off to a good start in 2009!
I ended up coming back to campus a little early for a meeting that was Thursday morning. Which meant I had to leave the house at 4:30 AM, the day of. I got there on time and everything, thanks to a huge amount of help from my mom and sister, so all went well.
As soon as that was over, I set to crafting Tom’s Room: Mark II.
At the end of last semester, I’d had this idea to reorganize some of my room, moving stuff around and so on. I also thought it would be neat to rebuild the futon (banned to the closet by an executive decision of Ian and Rob) and use it as a couch. Or try at least. It’s a crappy futon, but Lizz said they’re better if you put memory foam on, so I might try that.
Anyways, I did all the moving, futon-building, and cleaning, I finally got it close to something I liked. Below are pictures!
So we’ll see how that works out. As I told Rob, you can never know how you feel about a given configuration until you field-test it, and right now, I’m noticing a sloping in the floor that I hadn’t before… but what’re you gonna do.
In addition to a new room, I also got a new phone! Our contracts were up, so they were not as expensive as they would normally be, which is always a plus. It was a weird moment, the phone-swap. You look down at a little lump of plastic and metal that’s been by your side more-or-less for the past two years, and you have to look into its little screen and explain why you can’t be together anymore. That’s hard to do.
See you little buddy! And then, you turn around to a new lump of little plastic and metal, and realize that it’s going to be by your side for the next two years. Some of the most important moments of my life that haven’t even happened yet, I can almost guarantee that that phone will bear witness to… and that’s a weird thought to think.
Anyways, enough phone philosophy. I mostly wanted to drop a little blip about redoing my room, and how boring Kirksville is. It will be good once there are people to see, but right now it’s just me and Lizz and a bunch of 30 Rocks we’ve both already seen.
Could be worse though.
And it beats frickin’ working.
[Oh! I almost forgot! My and Ian’s Top Albums of 2008 are both up. You can access them from the new music omnibus page! It’s not quote done yet, but it’s functional.]
