Trying new things in college!
Last night, my floormates and I headed out to attend the dance/a capella performance by the Sugarplums and the Dartmouth Aires. We didn’t realize how popular the show would be…by the time we arrived, the frat was overflowing, and we weren’t able to squeeze in through the doors. 
Since we had already thrown on our obese winter jackets and trekked through the frigid night to reach Beta, it felt particularly anticlimactic to return to our dorms with nothing but frozen fingers and the memory of closed doors. 
Powered by an impromptu impulse, we walked to Hanover and hit up CVS to buy a few boxes of hair dye. While I had fiddled with the notion of dying my hair for a while now, I had definitely not considered the possibility of doing it so soon -and definitely not on a Monday night! Everything worked out though; we made a pact to work productively until 2 am; then, we’d meet each other in the hallway and start the hair-coloring extravaganza. 
Hair-dying took a lot longer than we initially anticipated, but it was a fun bonding experience! We monopolized the bathroom from 2-5 am. (Our choice of time probably wasn’t the wisest; with a 10 am class the next day, it was definitely a struggle to crawl out of bed in the morning. But regardless, no regrets! I also managed to read through two chapters of my philosophy textbook while Sarah was working on my hair, so I’d say hair-dying gave me a good incentive to stay awake and review for my upcoming philosophy final.) ^.^
The final color is supposed to be dark brown, but it’s only visible under intense sunlight. (Refer to shameless selfie above. :o ) 
Lingering thought: I wonder how my parental figures will respond….hopefully they won’t notice? hmmmm.

I went back to Skyline yesterday to give some books to someone and for some reason I felt really anxious and started sweating as I was walking down the hallways. IDK why but the new students there seem so judgmental. 

I also ran into Vinny and Ashwathi, who were on their way to meet Doran. WHAT A COINCIDENCE, RIGHT?? Then I walked home with Shaina and we discussed how she really wishes she was in our grade because we’re way more awesome than her class. ;) 

GO BLUE. WE BEAT NOTRE DAME TODAY, 41-30. 
Today’s game was our first and only night game of the season as well as the last time we pay ND. It was a blast-the enthusiasm, spirit, and energy in the Big House was incredible and so electric. Our halftime show involved a special video message from Beyonce and a great performance from the Michigan Marching Band! Also, we made a record tonight, the largest number of people in attendance at the largest stadium in the country: 115,109! I’m just so happy as there were definitely a few nervous moments, but we pulled through strong :-)

Some more highlights! Organized some of my textbooks, discovered that my laptop has an amazing battery life and bought COLORED SHARPIES OMG. I went to a Global Education Fair and came back with lots of free swag and a little overwhelmed by the plethora of study abroad and international internship opportunities. I went with some friends to see Les Mis live at the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre and it was incredible! Also, I would like to point out that Darren Criss came to the pep rally but we couldn’t go because Les Mis. I also went with some other friends to a ballroom dancing class at the Michigan Union Rogel Ballroom a few days ago, where we learned to cha cha and tango!

Five more days to go til dubai!!!! Cousins left a long time ago..just been shopping and lazing around. Also visited my dad’s childhood home in rajbhavan (where the governor of Maharashtra stays), fell sick, and learned from my dad’s colleague that the craziest thing he did in college was throw a sandal at a girl lawl
