ETA: This is a scene from The House I Live In, a film on the American drug war and its effects on communities of color, education, the class disparity and the prison industrial complex. I cannot recommend this film highly enough.

Day 269: September 28, 2014
I woke up at 9 to do my laundry and homework. I spent all day doing the homework I should have finished the day before, but that’s okay. Sundays are dull. Shruti and I discovered we were both super bored of doing homework alone so we went to Fruizen and then did homework separately but together in my room. We ordered The Bowl Thai food with Robin and Ben for dinner which made our day slightly better as well.
At 8 pm, I texted Bailey and we went on a long walk to take a break from work. We talked a long time, it was really lovely. I just met her this past Saturday (very early in the morning) but we are both so open about ourselves that I think we have already become good friends. I hope so, anyway. I really like her.
Day 268: September 27, 2014
I wore my favorite dress today.
I slept in until 11. Jessica and I finished the rough draft for our thermo project, and later in the evening she drove us to a modern dance performance called “Stardust” at CSULB. It was superb, and covered a full range of emotions. I wasn’t expecting it to hit me as hard as it did.
When we got back to school, I went to Jay’s Place and had a nice conversation with Wai Sing and Christian. Then I went to bed early, around midnight.
These books had a huge influence on me when I was young.

The origins of these photos have been lost. I read an article about this young painter yesterday, which explained that she is autistic and uses these paintings in order to better express herself.
She may be my favorite painter on the planet.

Day 267: Friday, September 26, 2014
I have become a selfie queen. But at the same time I look forward to the day when I don’t have oodles of selfies on my phone. It makes me feel so vain..
Today was pretty good. I had a lunch meeting with the PRISM officers and the OID, and we picked out dates for all the events we are going to have this semester. Woohoo! That means a movie night, a sex talk night, a game night, and other cool events.
The rest of the afternoon was spent being interviewed by Hannah for a research project, and working on my digital design lab. Jessica and I finished before dinner! It was the fastest lab yet. I was pretty stoked.
After that, I started making a study guide for psychology, since we have an exam next Thursday and we have had absolutely no homework in that class. But work was boring on a Friday night, so a few of us began drinking casually while working in the lounge. I got pretty bored of work at one point, so I went to Atwood to hang out with my friends. In the end, we met Kanak at Case, and we used certain substances and watched Superbad. Afterwards, we stayed up til 3:30 making a bucket list with the most controversial topics on it. It was a lot of fun! I met a frosh that might help me fill something on my bucket list. Oh my. Nights like this are the best.

Day 266: September 25, 2014
Today was okay. I was pretty tired since I stayed up late the night before. French class always perks me up though. I’m glad I ended up taking it, even though we have an assignment every day. I spent the evening working on my thermo assignment. But for the first time I was able to do half of the problems on my own. I was pretty satisfied about that. I didn’t finish the assignment until 10 30 after being in Platt for more than 4 hours, but I was happy with my work.
After that, I went to FMM (Friday Midnight Movie at my dorm). It was this super over-the-top action/thriller called Wanted. It made everyone in the lounge laugh. It was a good time, but I was falling asleep so I went to bed at around 1:30.
Day 265: Wednesday, September 24, 2014
This was a loooong day. All I remember is that I went to class, had a PRISM meeting (it went pretty well!), and did STEMS homework until 2:30 in the morning. I couldn’t quite finish but I did the best I could. Wednesdays seem to follow this same pattern..
I’m trying out the new social network called Ello.
You can find me with @niklii.
If you’d like an invitation, shoot me a PM.
Hope all is well! xoxo
