Today is the day on my blog where I'm just going to give you little snippets, little anecdotes, little insights as to what is going on in my life today. Here we go.
Earlier in the summer, I completely cleared out my room and rearranged the furniture because it had become incredibly claustrophobic after a large, relatively empty residence hall room. After this, my older dog, Winnie, became accustomed to sleeping on my floor. This was fine up until she decided to start gnawing her leg off (well, not really, but she gets stressed and bites her leg and it's gross.) So, we have to put medicine on it and that medicine happens to smell like spoiled milk. Honestly. For weeks I thought I had SOMEHOW lost a glass of milk in some corner of my room. Upon figuring out what it was, I sort of had to ban her from my room or else I would honestly feel ill. And now, she still sometimes comes to the door and tries to push it open like she used to. Every now and then I just head her sort of crash into the door and then saunter off. It crushed my soul, but also makes me less nauseous. And the point of this story was to tell you that it just happened again. Sad times.
I am currently watching Casablanca for my second time ever, first time in years. I definitely have to be in certain moods for old films, but when I am in the right mood, god, do I love them. This film is just so charming and beautiful.
Sunday is the day I am finally going to let myself officially pack, as it means that I am two weeks from departing. Therefore the next three days will be spent mentally packing and trying to decide what I will and won't need abroad. Essentially what this means is that when I walk into my room, I do a brief inventory of everything I own and contemplate my attachment to it. It's strange.
To the person who asked yesterday what I intend to study, it will probably be either film or journalism/media. Both things obviously very prevalent in my life as it is, so why not turn them into a career path? Or something.
Editing video from when I went to the fake Stonehenge. This is the first video I have ever made with the intention of being similar to a Thoughts From Places video. I find it slightly annoying that any video where you share thoughts and go places is considered a TfP video these days because, let's be honest, people were making videos from places with thoughts long before John and Hank put a name to it. However, this video has the same format as one of their videos, so I would say it was inspired by them. It's the only one that I have thought of them while editing, though.
My best friend is currently studying abroad in Florence, Italy. As I mentioned yesterday, I was looking at American universities in London. My first pick has a study abroad program in Florence and I just didn't think anything of it until I talked to her today, sent her the website and found out that it is the same school she is at. Typical. The whole world of universities and we look at the exact same one. One mind.
Currently, I am craving eggrolls and mozzarella sticks. The closest Chinese food place is right next to the closest places that sells mozzarella sticks. As in, they share a parking lot that is only for the two places. It's meant to be, right? That wouldn't be too unhealthy...right? I'm gross.
Introduced Liam to Dream Street. For those of you unaware as to what Dream Street is...I'll let you YouTube that. He was totally into it (lie), wanted to hear more (lie) and said that if he had known about them when he was their age, he'd "totally want to be a part of it" (truth). If you read this blog and would like to comment on his channel that you'll find him down on Dream Street. Well. I wouldn't complain.
I am currently trying to sell some of my things that have been sitting around, not getting the attention they deserve. I have a video here showing them and I bid you to email me at kayleyhyde@gmail if you're interested. I don't mean to sound like I'm selling things or anything, I just figured asking people who watch my videos was a cooler way to get rid of nice things, rather than putting them up for random people on eBay. If you disagree, that's cool, you just don't have to watch the video or buy anything :P Also, bear in mind that while the prices are sort of high, most of them are at least, usually more, than $25 more on eBay or anything like that. Since typing this I've made two sales, so wonderful!
I got the eggrolls and mozzarella sticks. Only ate one of the mozzarella sticks, so I don't feel too ashamed in myself. Or at least that's what I'll tell the internet.
This will haunt your dreams. You've been warned.
This plan would have worked between if I hadn't spent the last five or six hours in a skype call. Oops. Um. Guess I'll see you tomorrow! x
Days till London: 17.
