Yesterday was Valentine's Day and I spent the day with my roommate. We cooked dinner together and had a lot of fun. It was like having our very own "Galentines Day" (Parks & Rec reference). I also watched Birdman this weekend with a friend of mine. It was so refreshing to watch something so creative and original. Nowadays, I feel that every movie Hollywood produces is a sequel, remake or book adaptation. Birdman was none of those things and poked fun at a lot of those movies. It was definitely a fast-paced movie but the soundtrack throughout it used only drums, which was really awesome!
Also on Wednesday of this past week I went to my sorority house to decorate cards for the Children's Hospital. They said the cards would be delivered to both the children who had to stay in the hospital along with the nurses who work with them! A lot of girls showed up to make cards. I felt like this was a great way to celebrate Valentines Day, to show love and appreciation to people who might be overlooked.

I feel like I should mention that there's only 9 more days until my 21st birthday! The countdown to adulthood has officially begun :)
