Hey dudes and dudettes, I've been patiently awaiting your arrival, sorry it's a little messy we have all been getting into the swing of things (read: we've all been a little lazy [read: I... I have been slacking a little]). Anyway, come on in, this is the living room I have sat in approximately 5 times most of those while I was drinking. But that there is my All American Rejects got milk poster.
And what's this you ask? that would be our mini Michigan State basketball hoop and our board of roomie pictures. Some of these fond memories include the New Years I threw up every 30 minutes for 12 hours and me dragging Maria despite her resistance into the living room.
This is another wall of our living room with Carrie there looking seductively into your eyes and the wall of Allyssa, for those who don't know my friend Allyssa is on the MSU women's team and so to show my support I have a poster from each year signed by her... however, that bottom one she signed while intoxicated. It says something like "I <3 Tay, and the Aarons, and G-ma J and one more... Ginger Ginger Chicken Finger." That is the definition of classy.
Here is our kitchen I spend as little time as possible in. I am not gifted in the culinary department. I pretty much stick to Pizza Rolls and Taquitos. It's a good thing I have a kind of active metabolism.
Now what you have all been waiting for, MY ROOM!! I know, exciting, exciting things going on. So that is clearly the bedding I chose after all the debating. Let's see, what else, the bandana above the window is from the running of the bulls in Pamplona, my sweet sparkly lamps, some more pictures and tickets to random sporting events, the eiffel tower and whatnot. Doesn't my bed just look like the comfiest thing in the world... don't worry, you aren't imagining it, it really is.
And here is the view from my bed, that is my television where the roomies and I spend quality time watching movies and whatnot. I like to confuse people who come in my room by portraying badass with the Wanted poster and softie with the Phantom of the Opera poster. I like to keep my guests on their toes, do you feel confused? Good, that's how I roll.
Here is my desk where I do everything but homework. I actually do my homework sitting on my bed, because you know I like to have good posture. My calender actually has events on it so you are witnessing a rare event.
I know all of you (read: non-dudes) are always interested in the closet area of other non-dudes. So there it is, it is in fact color coordinated... sort of. I would say about 50% of the closet is band t-shirts. I have probably a few too many of those.
Here is a close up of above my desk. I just wanted to point this out because the board on the left is covered in concert tickets. Yes. Some would say too many, I would say not enough. Also note the middle picture on the right board, it features a bite-size Jeanette and my bite-sized best friend Alison. We were adorable.
I realized not that visible in the other picture was my sparkly pink guitar. You're welcome. Can I play you ask? I mean, it's debatable haha, I say yes, my roommates beg to differ.
I know you have all read me write about how many movies I have and here is the moment you've all been waiting for, the movie collection. Also my box sets, you can't really tell but the Twilight books are still in the plastic wrap. I'd read them all before the movie and purchased my own copies finally. Then we saw the movie and I have been too bitter since then to read the books again haha. Oh and there is my hat.
I don't really have a favorite movie row because they are in alphabetical order, courtesy of Maria.
So after all of those movies we move on to television series. I have every season of 30 Rock, Arrested Development, Desperate Housewives, Dinosaurs, Freaks and Geeks, Gilmore Girls, Heroes, How I Met Your Mother, It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, Kath & Kim, The Office, One Tree Hill, Reno 911, Samantha Who?, and Veronica Mars. Well I'm missing a few Reno 911, but I'm working on it as quickly as I can.
I am also missing a favorite book row because those are also alphabetized by Maria. This picture is missing a few because I loaned a friend both Chelsea Handler books. Anyways, I've read approximately zero pages since I've been at school that didn't involve steel structures.
I thought to end this post I would show you something you guys might remember. Looky there, my dog who goes by several names, I believe Ugly was a suggestion. Only now he's wearing a sorting hat! Also in this picture, my Wii, my shot glass collection, my Russian flask, and other random things.
