Saturday was one of those days when I literally locked myself in my room and forced myself to study. As a result of very, very little human contact yesterday, this happened:
The only words I’ve said out loud today are “is this Kindergarten Cop?” So…how’s your Saturday been?

Four words. All day. Is it sad that I’m almost proud of that achievement?
OH, I almost forgot! During one of my (many) study breaks that day I watched an episode of Mankind. Tori, who I don’t even have to link to since we talk about her so much <3, has practically live-tweeted the past few episodes and it seemed awesome. So I took a look, and you can too here if you’re a history nerd like us 😀
Anyways, I woke up today (Sunday) with a huge cloud over my head: cabin fever. I had to get out. Now. No more studying at home. I looked outside just as it started to pour, so that immediately made me want to get back under the covers, but no. I wouldn’t.
My roommate Cara and I finally decided to do something I haven’t done since I was in Argentina: study in a coffee shop. OMGIKNOW, but it’s a scary world out there, man.
So we ventured over to the nearest (crowded) Starbucks, grabbed some hot chocolate, and popped down to
do homework people watch. I almost forgot how much fun people-watching was. We had a prime location: bar stools right in front of a window looking out over an intersection.
- a LOT of people got their Christmas trees today
- you really shouldn’t wear reindeer antler headbands in public
- hey, I know her! *wave*
- that guy in the red hat is suuuper cute
- do people actually meet other people in coffee shops? I wish that would happen to me. I’d make my life so much easier
- they need a fireplace in here
- oh, look at those cute rain boots!
- you don’t get much studying done when you’re staring out a window
So that was my day. I hope you all had a nice weekend! Happy December!!
(And yes, one of the side effects of cabin fever is weird blog posts like this one. I’m going to click Publish before I have a chance to talk myself out of it)
