Well, hey there, Internet. How are you today?
Not gonna lie, I'm still in lazy mode. I've been working on my paper off and on all day, but mostly I've been watching the 16 and Pregnant marathon on MTV. That show is one of those reality train wrecks that I can't help but kind of love. I always feel kind of sorry for the girls, because obviously they weren't planning on getting pregnant. Some of them were even using protection, but it just didn't work. On top of all of that, there's always someone on the show who is trying to make things difficult for them. It might be her parents or the guy's parents or the guy himself or a friend, but I'm pretty sure I've never seen an episode where everyone was supportive.
But in the end, when the girl is in labor and her family/friends/boyfriend/fiance/husband/whoever are all there cheering her on and finally the baby comes out and she sees it for the first time, I always get a little teary.
Is that pathetic? I feel a bit ridiculous admitting that other people seeing their baby for the first time gets me misty-eyed. But it's just such a nice moment! Even though it totally wasn't their plan, they're just so happy to see their baby and there's just so much love in the room.
(I also really like when the grandparents see the baby and get teary. That's nice.)
Pretty much, today has been another successful day of procrastination for me. Yes, I wrote two more pages of my paper. I also did some cleaning around Brad's apartment and took a shower and ate some food.
I haven't been in my dorm room for more than ten or fifteen minutes since Thursday, I think. Which is kind of odd, because usually I spend most of my time there. But this weekend I've been living out of Brad's apartment. It's kind of cool. I like it.
Well, I'm running out of things to ramble about. So...um...more tomorrow?
