So, I am sitting at Caribou Coffee in Royal Oak and there are two big burly guys behind me talking about 80’s music and one of them just admitted that his favorite movie is “Pretty in Pink”. I think that has to be the cherry on top of a very easy-going, and wonderful birthday. Yep, today is my birthday, and I am the rip-old age of 26. I am getting old! I did however receive an invitation to a college Halloween party this weekend, that I may or may not attend so I guess I am only as old as I feel. Or something.
I am actually really excited about this party because the guys in my Shakespeare seminar are throwing it and other “kids” from our class are going to be there. I love this class so much, I know I talk about it a lot but it is the first class where the majority of the people in the class are my age, as well as being complete dorks like me! We spend at least ten minutes before class and after the break discussing things like Buffy, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Star Wars. I know right?! There are only about 12 of us in the class, and we created “Shakespeare Cafe” last week when one student brought in coffee and brewed it for us, and our professor brought is scones. We are even taking a group trip to see Anonymous next Friday. You know you are in a room full of English majors when you ask where someone went, and their reply is “He took the Narnia exit”. OU, why are you making it so hard to leave in December?
