What I learned this year - or the various adventures of Apartment 4

This morning I wrote my (hopefully) last exam of my undergraduate degree.

As the year comes to an end, I’ve decided to make a list of the things I’ve learnt over the course of this year. Here goes:

  1. Even (or especially) when procrastinating, living with your friends is hella fun.
  2. Try as she might, Kristen will never learn how to teleport us to school.
  3. What happens in the edit suites stays in the edit suites - true friendship is surviving being stuck in a small cubicle with a temperamental computer and a tight deadline.
  4. Powdered donuts can get me through anything.
  5. Wednesday nights are fierce. ANTM and girls night.
  6. Hummus should not be used in the bedroom.
  7. That night in San Quinn was unforgettable.
  8. If you make a giant vat of chili on the weekend, you have food all week!
  9. How to push myself to max sushi capacity. Also, how to make sushi.
  10. M&M brownies in a box are the best kind of brownies, in a box.
  11. There are few problems that can’t be solved by Hagen Daas.
  12. It’s very hard to fashion an erect penis on a sugar cookie man with just icing.
  13. Journalism sucks. Wait, I already knew that. This year I learned that certain things, like docs and fun archaeology articles aren’t so bad.
  14. Testes? Testicles? It’s interchangeable.
  15. Everyone should have an slogan. Like Kristen, Canada’s Open Person.
  16. How to dance like no one’s watching.
  17. You can eat grilled cheese three to four days a week, two meals a day.
  18. Every day is a Tea Party.
  19. Science isn’t as scary as I thought.
  20. It’s very difficult to walk down four flights of stairs in heels when drunk.
  21. It is possible to live for a year with only three walls.
  22. I look damn hot in a grad cap, unlike the majority of people. Unfortunately, without the hat I look like a smirking fool holding fake flowers.
  23. Museums are awesome.
  24. How to make egg salad. And heart shaped scones. And a million cookies.
  25. I have the best friends in the world, and I owe the survival of this year and the three before that to them.

And now…. what four BJ students are really good for….

    Hehe, nice post, babe. The picture of the Borat cookie killed me. Good times.

    I’m glad you’ve had far better roommate experiences than I have!! Hahah.

    I like that you at least tried #12!

    Oh, and I have yet to master #16… except, you know, when I’m at home in the bathroom with the stereo blasting and really no one is watching… yah, except for then!

    In my experience, marzipan is much better for penises on gingerbread/cookie men. You could probably fashion it out of just-melted chocolate too, if you were making politically correct, black cookie men.

    I highly agree with the last photo. Yummy boobs!

    Boobs, Seb? Whose are you looking at? :P

    You can’t see the cleavage…? Last photo…?

    I’m more than happy to look at it some more and direct you to the boobs in question…
