Apparently a pretty severe thunderstorm ripped through a ‘region’ that’s a few hours away from where I am. They had heavy rain, thunder, and lightning. Enough lightning to spark wildfires, but thankfully those are all contained. The storm was last night, I’m pretty sure my city is getting some effects of that storm, it’s been pretty dreary here for the past two days, and right now. I want a thunderstorm, I’ve always LOVED them since I was a little kid…but I wouldn’t want any severe damages to occur from it though! Although I wouldn’t mind losing power for a little while…(sometimes power outages can be fun….if they’re in the evening or something..) But it’s supposed to go back to full sun and warmer temperatures by tomorrow, so it’s all good.
There’s been crazy construction off of my street for the past week or so…I don’t even understand what the heck they’re even building.. I can hear Maroon 5 blasting from the construction workers’ radio. Speaking of Maroon 5…can I say, Adam Levine is B-E-A-UTIFUL. I don’t think I even realized it to the full extent until I saw a few episodes of ‘The Voice’. But yeah, it’s so noisy here from all the drilling and whatever else they’re doing.
UBC.…..move in day is in 23 days…crazy stuff. Absolutely crazy. The new Totem Houses..which I can now actually PRONOUNCE PROPERLY : həm’ləsəm’ (hum-le-some) and q’ələχən (cul-le-hon). And these two houses together will accommodate about 566 students, and they are all single rooms! We still haven’t received our housing assignments yet…mid-august…grr… I don’t think I can wait any longer! I need to buy stuff for my dorm room…and it’d be nice to know whether I have a single or a shared room..[EDIT]: Housing assignments will be released on August 15th (APPARENTLY)
