if you think its ok, its probably too loud.

I am sitting in the JFSB trying to work on a study guide for my Infant Development class, but instead of being able to focus on my reading, I find myself listening to the music that is somehow audible, lyrics and all, through the headphones of the guy sitting 5 feet away from me. I’m sure for him music helps him focus, but for me it’s a huge distraction. I’d much rather listen to music than do this study guide, so when I can hear his music, that’s exactly what I am going to do. I can’t help it. I’ll bet that if this guy turns his music down just a few notches, I will no longer be able to hear it, but he still will. Makes everyone happy.
Let me also just say that this is not the first time, or the first place, this has occurred. I've even heard music unusually loud in the library. Not in the no-shhh zone. Definitely in the shhh zone.
So word of advice to you music studiers: please just turn it down!
Alright, back to it ironic that he just turned his music off??

so this is the new year.

2010. Welcome.
This year is going to be a great one, I already know it. Here are just a few great things that I have to look forward to (and yes, i did steal this idea from my roomie, thanks Leah!):
1. Arts Semester
I started the actual program for my major (Elementary Education with an Early Childhood Emphasis) this semester and I get to take awesome classes like dance and drama. its going to be so much fun!
2. Washington D.C.

My brother and sister-in-law live there, so a trip sometime this year is gonna happen.
3. Paris.

My roommates and I are going to Paris, as soon as I get a job (anyone know of any openings?! I’m desperate!).
4. Ghana

This summer I am going to teach in an underprivileged preschool in Ghana. I’ll be living with a native and working (without pay) for 5 weeks, then my family is going to come and we’re going to do some sight-seeing.
5. The gap between my best friend and I is going to shrink from one thousand miles to ZERO. :)
And although I will be doing a lot of travelling this year, I still feel like these lyrics are currently my theme song. If they were true I could do so much more.
"I wish the world was flat like the old days
Then I could travel just by folding a map
No more airplanes, or speedtrains, or freeways
There'd be no distance that can hold us back"
-Death Cab for Cutie
