Not to get all nostalgic on you, but we’re sad to say that this school year is coming to a close. We’ve taken our finals, submitted our papers, and shoved all of our belongings in trash bags to take home for the summer. (Hannah moved out yesterday, and she owned roughly 80% of our room so 434 is looking especially empty today.) The end of the year feels bittersweet.
It’s sweet because finals are ending and we don’t have to hide in the darkest corners of the library for hours on end to write papers and make flashcards until we forget what sunlight feels like. In our newly-found free time we’ve mostly been finding romantic comedies to watch, planning to lambaste them, but ultimately falling into a comatose silence while we watch them then wonder after why we did that in the first place. We’ve been specializing in the Miles Teller RomCom genre, which is surprisingly extensive. That Awkward Moment and The Spectacular Now are just a few mediocre movies that you can add to your list.
It’s bitter because Hannah, Natalia and I will no longer be sharing a room. (Thank god we all live in the same town.) We’ll miss dining hall breakfasts and the endless supplies of chocolate chip cookies. But most of all, we’ll be bummed because this blog will be taking a break for the summer, to return when we come back to school in the fall.
So, for our last post for a while, we’ve compiled a “Best Of” list for this year, our sophomore years in college. Please enjoy.
That time we jumped out of a plane:
That time we practiced jumping out of a plane:
That time we played real-life MarioKart. (I’d like to point out that we were on our way to see the One Direction movie, a decision we’re only mildly ashamed of.)
That time Hannah travelled all the way to London but was just as goofy as she is here:
That time we learned to ski:
That time Andie looked like this, (featuring Meg doing homework):
That time we learned how to vacuum for ourselves, like big people:
That time Hannah looked like a teletubby:
That time Andie looked like Strega Nona
So that’s it for us for a while, friends! Hannah and I are working on some cool things this summer. She’s starting a novel, and we’re going to be writing a screenplay together. We’ll also be working on re-vamping this site, so make sure you check us out again in the fall. We’ll have some cool stuff for you, we promise.
And above all, thanks so much for reading. (Special thanks to Andie for letting me post a bunch of goofy pictures of her.)
