I still need to buy a nice pullover sweater for winter. And some thick (but comfy somehow) pants.
In the off-chance that our apartment heater doesn’t keep my apt. mate and I sufficiently warm for winter, the strategy that I’ve devised is nothing short of a stroke of pure genius. So you guys know how I technically live on on-campus housing right? That means that while I do pay a highway robbery-esque amount for rent, I don’t have to pay for any bills. At all. So my strategy for a warm winter (at least when I’m not outside) involves permanently keeping the heater on—but not only that, I also intend to (as I said, only if the heater is not sufficient—I’m being purposefully careful here so people don’t get the wrong idea about me!)…keep the oven on!
Just turn the oven to 400+ degrees fahrenheit then go back to my room and chill—hopefully not literally, though (kek)
So the only real problems that I foresee are:
- "but kevin, only the kitchen gets hot from that"
- "you’re pretty forgetful, what if you forget to turn off the oven"
- "…what a waste of energy…"
So I’ve thought long and hard about these drawbacks and I th
I’ve also realized that unless I’m studying, sleeping, or it’s super early in the morning, I tend to avoid absolute silence. I don’t know why, maybe it’s cause it makes me realize how alone I am when my apt. mate’s not around (which is often—dunno where the guy goes, maybe to eat 燒賣 with his cool chinese friends). For the last few months when I shower I’d either have a podcast or music playing from my phone, which I’ll leave near the sink. For these last few days I’ve brought my laptop to bed and fell asleep while watching/listening to dota streams. When I cook in the kitchen I’ll have a podcast playing. When I take out the trash I’ll have music playing from my phone in my pocket. I think these are solutions to not only keep me entertained and my mind preoccupied, but they also keep me from feeling too lonely.
Prince Fox said he’s set to release another track this week—I can’t wait! Lately I’ve been listening to a lot of “Future-” music. Like future bass, future house, future pop, future tropical house (LOL)…along with deep house, nu disco, chill trap, tropical house and a bunch of others…but I still don’t even know what these terms mean. Anyway I think I’ve been thoroughly indoctrinated into the EDM fold (except I still think a lot of the bigger artists are whateverssss). All of the artists I like seem to want to play at the U Street Music Hall in Washington DC…too bad I won’t have a free weekend at all this semester to go see them. GG
1st wave of midterms hit in a bit more than a week-gotta keep chugging! I’ll have fall break to look forward to after that! For those of you that don’t know (and I don’t know if this is common amongst schools), Duke students get a seemingly random (to me anyway) two days off during mid October. So this year we get October 13-14 off. That means more time to study for the midterm I’m gonna have right when fall break ends!!! Y-a-y…
