You know what's awesome about being in college? You get to do whatever you want. For example: a few months ago people in my studio were talking about how much fun it would be to have a formal for the landscape architecture department, so one of us went ahead and planned it. Last weekend I went to a formal that a classmate completely organized and coordinated.
First off, HUGE props to her for all the work she put in. We had music, food, and a venue (Muncie Cornerstone Center for the Arts). I have no idea how she pulled this off, but we're all very grateful for her. We had a TON of fun that evening, as the photographic evidence suggests:
My date and me before the dance.
A common theme from the dance: studio love.
Even more love.
Maybe too much love?
Probably my favorite photograph from the evening: do you see the stalker?
Fun fact: I live with five other people and at no point in history have all six of us been in the same room. In an effort to remedy that, I offered to make my Muncie family a holiday meal Sunday evening. The meal was great-- my roommates latched onto the idea and everyone pitched in to make a delicious meal. All but one roommate. *sigh* We still haven't all been in the same room together!
Neither of these gentlemen is my roommate, but they were welcome nonetheless.
Setting the table. We've never eaten at the table before. Never.
We even busted out some napkins. And a center piece. That's how fancy this dinner was.
After dinner we pulled each other around the neighborhood on a lunch tray behind a truck. (Again: college = do whatever you want!) Which was doubly awesome because you ended up looking like Frosty the Snowman by the end of it. His pip was completely packed with snow.
They were really proud of themselves.
