Our living room wound up housing Matt, his friend Amy, our good friend Ariel, Gina, and I, all of us playing some sort of musical role in my belated b-day jam session except for Amy, who had to leave. We wound up pounding through “With or Without You,” a new song, “Under My Skin,” and “House of the Rising Sun” with Gina on lead guitar, Matt on bass, Ariel on various rhythms, and myself on guitar or bass. Afterwards we adjourned to Justin&Joey’s suite in the newly constructed residence hall, which i don’t like especially much. One cool thing is they have these neat fold-a-way seats in their showers, and since i am always exhausted when i shower i think it’s pretty cool. Then we visited Michelle&Nora in the older residence hall (where Gina would have lived). Their rooms rock, because they’re on the first floor and have fifteen foot high ceilings. Gina and I think they need to buy some chandeliers from IKEA.
Afterwards we returned to our respective homes and i went on a cleaning and organizing frenzy to complete what i started when i moved in two weeks ago. Matt generally stood back and offered suggestion as to where i should put my cd rack. The result is double the open floor space that we had before, and a convenient place for me to put my shoes. And now i’m blogging… definitely feels just like home.
