So I was at my school’s convocation yesterday. I didn’t know what to expect out of it, but I had a feeling it was going to be just a bunch of random administrators whom I’ve never seen before give a speech about the future. Imagine my surprise when the President of my college announced the first speaker: Hunter alumnus Ned Vizzini. But who knew that he graduated from my school? It came as a complete shock to me.
I immediately recognized the name. It’s hard not to recognize it when his book, It’s Kind of a Funny Story, is so popular. It’s one of those books that you just can’t forget picking up. I know I read it a long time ago, but I’m even more positive that I enjoyed it. During his speech, Vizinni announced that It’s Kind of a Funny Story was adapted into a film and is out for release soon on October 8th 2010.

I hope it will be awesome – no wait. it will be awesome haa. I’m hoping I will get a little cash at Christmas time. I’m just going to save all my money from now until then, so I should be okay Im sure I will buy bagfuls of useless crap while I’m there. If it’s glittery or rainbow coloured, I will buy it D:
Oh no! You missed it?!! Just for you: http://i56.tinypic.com/2n66mg9.png Haha
I love wood flooring, I’ve wanted it for ages but my mother insists it’s cold and my ‘cat will get cold sitting on it’ D: I’ve tried to explain I will have a big rug that the cat can sit on if she wants to, but she still insists carpet is better! Wood is better with cats as if they bring mud in on their feet (or smelly stuff as my cat does) then its way easier to get rid of than letting it sink into carpet… :S
