Day 2: 9 things I do every day.

Okay, so it's been...significantly more than a day since I last posted.  On with the challenge (and more about my Thanksgiving break...before Christmas, ideally):

1. Listen to NPR (Morning Edition) while waking up and slowly getting out of bed.
2. Check email (and Facebook, Twitter, Blogspot, Wordpress, Yahoo! Sports...)
3. I technically have seven things now...but walk down the hill to take RIPTA to the library.
4. Grab coffee from Dunkin' Donuts (medium French vanilla, cream and sugar).
5. Write things (papers, applications, blog posts...)
6. I'm getting the impression that I don't do much of anything ever, but does play Angry Birds count?
7. Listen to music, often while walking.
8. Perform activities required for survival (I eat and sleep normally now)!
9. Give hugs.
10. Think about life.

Yeah...that's all I have, and I had to strain to come up with anything after the first two.  Any ideas on how to diversify/spice up my life?

Day 1: 10 random facts about me

1. I love coffee ice cream.  A lot.  Green tea ice cream is a close second.
2. My body shuts down when I am cold...if studying, I tend to drift in and out of consciousness.
3. I am very easily highly amused (and laugh really loudly).
4. I am very absentminded (coincidentally, I skipped over this number while writing this).
5. I am legally blind from being born 12 weeks premature due to a condition called retinopathy of prematurity.  Also, blind jokes are my favorite (seriously).
6. I may or may not have an unhealthy obsession with Mario Kart Wii.
7. I have wanted to do public health ever since I did the Disease Detectives event from Science Olympiad my freshman year (and the rest of) high school.
8. I am a huge San Antonio Spurs fan.
9. I love travel of any kind, but especially international.
10. I think in song lyrics.

10-day challenge

I stole this idea from a friend of mine; may as well do day 1 before I head to bed.

Day 1: Ten random facts about yourself.
Day 2: Nine things you do every day.
Day 3: Eight things that annoy you.
Day 4: Seven fears/phobias.
Day 5: Six random things in your room.
Day 6: Five things you can’t live without.
Day 7: Four memories you won’t forget.
Day 8: Three words you can’t go a day without using.
Day 9: Two things you wish you could do.
Day 10: One person you can trust.

An apple a day...

will make me happy and give me much needed calories/energy/serotonin to finish this lit summary before I go to bed (at a reasonable hour, preferably before 2am).  I need to make these posts longer.  And less...stressful.  I feel bad for whoever is reading this, but I promise I will post longer, more amusing, happy things soon.  Like the blazing red leaves that I saw in a pile outside on my walk to the bus that I didn't snap a picture of!  Also will put more pictures up once I figure out this Blogger upload thing.  And make a concerted effort to blog at least once a day, even if it's just a short life update.  Except that contradicts with my "let's make these posts longer and more fun" promise.  Hmm.  I'll figure it out.  After eating my apple.

Oh, Angry Birds...

This is exactly how I feel now after beating all 195 levels of Angry Birds.  Yes, I could get three-star ranks for every level, but it just doesn't feel as satisfying, not to mention particularly necessary.  Same for when I beat Mario Kart Wii - after I unlocked every single mode and character, there was no point going back and trying to get three stars for every course.

Well, I guess I have to wait until more levels come out.  Not to mention the mighty eagle...
