The Monday Catchup

Check how meta this pic is. Hint: this is a picture of me writing this exact post. Sadly, I got ketchup all over my keyboard. :(

Good news, friends. After this weekend, my liver is roughly the size, shape, and color of an Olin bean bag. Ha! Of course I kid. Just yanking your chain. Joshing you. See, alcohol has never touched these lips – neither has water. I absorb all liquid nutrients through my skin. This makes taking a dip in an ocean or lake pretty problematic, but pools are the worst. That much chlorinated water can be a real pain for “maintaining homeostasis” or something. But, if John Mayer says that my body is a wonderland, then I’m content ’til the day I die. Needless to say, this weekend was pretty uneventful on campus. Here’s what you had to say.

“The Women’s March in D.C. was an inspiring and life-changing event. I’m excited to to see activism amounting to something.”

“Carla from Top Chef is really important to me.”

“I’m just appreciating the fact that I technically have an A+ in all my classes right now.”

Right on. Wanna know a secret?  The second week of classes is basically the same as the first, so do things other than work. Here you go. This list is a gift from me to you.
