So I Live In A Haunted Dorm Now

Standard

Wesleyannes, if you graduated before Banks started being used as a first-year hall, this post may scare you.

I LOVE BANKS.

Seriously, I’ve decided Rosemary and whatever other spirits inhabit this hall will be my friends. ย We’ll be cool.

Except for when she makes it where the completely unclogged shower won’t drain–that’s a little irking.

But we’re straight.

For real though, I have no idea if this place is haunted but I love the folklore of it.

Having lived in many an “inhabited” place, this is nothing new.

I love freaking Mama out when she comes up to my room, watching her fight off the fear is quite hilarious. ๐Ÿ™‚

So, without further adieu, here are some pictures of my room.

First of all, for your enjoyment, there is a random pencil sharpener on the second floor landing...in case you're late for class and forget to sharpen it in your room?

Outside my door, my mystery big sister left me a poster overnight :) I can't wait to meet her!

The back of my door, with my two closets...so intriguing, I know.

The rest of the wall with the TV, where my desk and sink are.

The wall opposite the door. That bed is getting a new mattress because there is a spring sticking out, and then it will be made--all match-matchy with my bed. :)

Anyway, today has been full of ups and downs.

Overall a good day, but I did have a moment.

See, it hurts my heart when I hear people who have such bright futures talking about partying themselves silly.

It’s taken away and taking away the bright futures of some people I consider/considered close.

Sometimes I can’t help but feel like a loner, ย I don’t drink, smoke, party, go clubbing, or even for the most part go out at all on nights before I have class. ย Yeah, I’m that girl. The nerd.

But hey, being a nerd got me out of high school early, and I believe it will serve me well in my future degree and eventual career.

I wanted to cry.

In the attempt to distract myself, I went through all of my old tweets.

For some reason, Twitter wouldn’t let me look before February 4, but I found this in my perusing.

My brother, the only person I really have no problem crying in front of, probably had no idea why I was crying but this was only a few days before MaeMae died.

And on top of the hilarity in the words themselves, he said it in his “cowboy” accent. ๐Ÿ™‚

Seriously, I don’t consider myself a religious scholar, but out of the mouths of babes!

I have learned more about life, death, and grief from the people under ten that live in my house than any book I’ve ever read.

The youngest cray knows. ย He knew that making me laugh was the one sure way to brighten my day.

So, in the spirit of not getting tears all over my own metaphorical sweatpants, I sucked it up, and ended up having a pretty good evening.

I hope you all are lucky enough to have experienced to or to experience in the future the wisdom of a child.

I won’t throw out my liberal theological views, but I believe Jesus knew what he was talking about when he said to believe like a child–but that’s another post. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I love you all, and I hope your day has been full of laughter.

PS-something or someone keeps making the fan make clacking noises whenever I type. ย Just going to leave you with that. ๐Ÿ™‚
