Silver Lining: Turnaround

November 3, 2010


Something very strange is happening to me.

On Tuesday, I skipped class with Cody. We spent two whole hours eating J-Dawgs and playing with nature and thinking about everything EXCEPT school. When I was laying on the grass, I made him sit like a hunchback so his shadow shaded my face, and also because I think he’d make a great Quasimodo one day, when Disney makes the obligatory sequel {inevitably named something like The Hunchback of Notre Dame: Dreams Come True}. It was WAY better than class.

Today, I took a huge bite of apple and sprayed this passerby in the face with my own projectile saliva, mixed with little bits of apple. And instead of being embarrassed, I just laughed. And laughed and laughed. Oddly enough, the boy didn’t think it was nearly as funny...

Tonight, I straggled in the door at 8:30 PM from another 12-hour day on campus {must… stop… doing that to myself…}. I have at least 6 hours of homework to do, I have to work 11 more hours by Friday, and my room looks like the epicenter of a 10.1. So, clearly, I spent the night on a fun date, and laughing with my roommates, and not getting anything done.

What happened to the old Brooke I know and love? Why am I not laying in bed at night worrying about things? Where is the responsible version of myself who feels bad if I skip a day of making my bed? Today I didn’t even look at my planner until 3 PM! This is serious people!!!

… but I’m kind of loving it.


  1. I think I am loving it too. Can I join you?

  2. tell your freshies about this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! also, even tho it is 730 am, jdawgs sounds freakin good

  3. Yep, its official you've gone crazy!

  4. I love this. I love it so much. I want to follow your lead!

  5. Should I be giving advice, like, Education is the most important blah blah blah...and Cleanliness is next to Godliness? Or should I be Hip, Hip, Hooray, Brooke's Happy today!?

    Should I be worried you're attracted to hunchbacks?
