Fort Fun!

And so the craziness of finals week continues.

As stress levels rise and classes are finished, people search for more ways to misplace their time. Because really, who can study with undivided attention for a whole day? 
Not me, that's for sure!

Today, instead of doing our work, we built a fort in Peter and Z's room.

And promptly dubbed it "The Woman Cave". 
The boys were a little sore. 

We decorated it, complete with Peter's raccoon hat warning boys to "Keep out!", a quilt (made by Alex's grandmother) to add a little color, and a strand of hearts along the top for fun.

In the end, though, we crossed off the "NO" in our sign.
We were, after all, in a boys' room and it wouldn't be fair to make an exclusive fort that they couldn't use! 

Huzzah for lazy Mondays.

Gettin' Crazy at Finals Week.

Well, we're coming up on Finals week, and campus is pretty much dead.
Everyone is inside studying, we have a "22 hours of quiet" policy in the dorms, and the only time people leave their rooms is to eat.

We need an outlet somewhere.

If touching wet paint in an area that says "Freshly Painted- Do Not Touch!" is the craziest I can get this week, I'll do it.

I take my thrills where I can get them.

I Volunteer as Tribute!

Way back when Avatar first came out (can you believe it's been 3 years already!?), 
I imagined what it'd be like to look like a Na'vi.
Avatar makers were abundant on the internet,  and so of course I put my picture in and out came this completely alien-looking blue thing with only a slight resemblance to myself. Apparently Na'vi have much larger eyes, much more rectangular noses, and let's not get me started on the colors! 

Anyways, this past week I've had the chance to redeem my Na'vi self.

My InterVarsity fellowship is hosting a Hunger Games tomorrow (can I get a whoot whoot?) to raise money for Summer Conference and Missions scholarships. The concept is very simple: there are 26 tributes (we have a District 13) who fight viciously to the death with nerf guns, PVC pipe swords, and tennis balls.
And of course we can't forget the district themes! The overall theme is "hit movies", and (you might have guessed it with my random intro) my district's theme is AVATAR! 

My mentor is crazy.
Cray-cray in an amazing and fabulous way. 
He's a mentor for all the tributes who live in the same area of the dorms that I do, the "Sunsprout" community, and he went all out with promos. 

Not only do we have fierce profile pictures,

and amazing cover photos with the rest of our Sunsprout tributes, 

we have a ridiculously awesome promo video. 

We even speak Na'vi, thanks to my district partner who learned it and speaks fluently! 

So, if you're out there and would like to sponsor us tributes, or even just root for us from afar, I hope that you'll be reminded of us tomorrow and send encouraging thoughts our way! 

May The Odds Be Ever In Our Favor!
