I have mixed feelings about today. Mostly good, but some are...indescribable.
Ahhhh, no, I know the word. Overwhelmed.
My story got critiqued today, where I got a lot of good feedback, but also a suggestion of a major plot revision that I don't really know how to pull off. Well, I have Friday and the weekend to come up with a solution, as well as write a Chapter 2.
|My favorite piece.|
We get back from the Institute (wow, that sounds super creepy and foreboding) at around 9:10 PM, and on our way back lightning is flickering up in the clouds (SO COOL. But very hard to capture). Maybe 10 minutes after we're back in the dorms, it starts pouring and flashing and creating huge rumbles of thunder, and I get Kevin C. to go with me outside because you don't get this kind of rain in California HEH. I love the possibility that it can be warm when it rains. ufufu =D Chicago weather man, the most interesting place to be in terms of weather and wind.
Following curfew sign-in, I head with Doris to the 5th floor lounge (not study hall this time, wow!) where there is a rowdy group of people playing a game (who would be the most likely to ______). Doris has a test tomorrow, so she couldn't stay for long, but she asked me to bring her hummus in the morning, lol. After 40 minutes of unproductivity nor excitement, Mauricio walks in with a half-empty bucket of vanilla ice cream and offers it to everyone in the room. Shravan and Aaron also walk in, with Ryan and Kat, and sometime in that period the people from the other party leave too. Someone plugs in an HDMI cable to watch The Italian Job, but everyone says to watch something else and I suggest the best TV show on Netflix: Sherlock.
We watch a single (almost 2 hour long) episode, and everyone who hasn't watched it yet gets hooked. Hehe. Getting people Sherlocked is a fantastic experience.
