Did I mention? Don't pay him any attention...


What a wonderful, almost-spring day at JMU. This campus has so many little treasures to offer its students, one just needs to open their eyes to their surroundings to fully appreciate them. Our school is superior to yours for three reasons:


1) We value the small things in life.
Yes, this is a baby motor scooter, locked to the railing outside of Top Dog,
the best dining hall on campus!



2) We have a strong sense of morality, and adhere
to the respected values of our ancestors.
Monday's issue of the Breeze, JMU's student newspaper reads
"Michael Phelps caught smoking a bong, so what?"
in which the sports-writer defends the 8-gold-medalist,
and offers anecdotes of his "friend's" usage of pot,
and even comments on the artistic design of the bong itself.


3) We take pride in our facilities and esteem
protecting our environment.

"I <3 Blow jobs" written with love on a desk in Carrier library.


Oh, JMU. How your moral standards and respect for others inspires me to be a better person.

Young and sweet, only seventeen


So, I am at the East Campus Library right now, selfishly hogging a mac, just to update the blog. I'm sure the people in line waiting for the computer are all thoroughly frustrated with me - but I'm trying to disguise my procrastination (I have a 10 page paper due in my oral literature class tomorrow...have I started? Um... that's the dumbest question ever, of COURSE I haven't) by frowning in complete concentration at the computer screen, whilst tapping ferociously on the keyboard.

Fooled ya!

I went home this weekend, and right before I left to come back to school, my sister and I have a photo session in our backyard. She's a super-amazing photographer, and I love all of her photos. I wanted an artistic-looking one for my facebook (because, as well all know, the one where I looked inedvertantly super-Asian, making a peace sign with my fingers, hair braided, and with a conductor's cap on was not working to my advantage).
This is the dialogue:
(referring to the quasi-spontaneous photoshoot)
"Caroline, can we do it someplace scenic? Can we do it on the bench?"
To this my clever sister replied, eyes lit, smile wide, "That's what she said."

Oh, how I can never pass up on a good "That's what she said" joke.

It's a new dawn, it's a new day, it's a new life.

With much encouragement from friends and several of my professors in the Media Art and Design program at my school, I've decided to start a new blog, documenting my random little life. I say new, because, like with everything else in my life, I never finish what I've started. I had to try three different e-mails to sign up for a blog on this site, because I've started so many new ones. Eesh.

Anyways, I've decided that I will never utter the phrase, "man, I wish I had my camera with me," again. This blog is dedicated to the random things that happen to me, and hopefully spark discussions with others who seem to be, like myself, a magnet for awkward/unwanted/uncomfortable/hilarious situations.

So, here's to my new blog, the absurdity of my past, and hopes that the randomness will never stop.
