Forum Chatter: Opening Ceremony, College Necessities And Sick JamsChrissa Hardy

Forum users, I feel like you’re constantly cracking an egg of knowledge on me. And I love you for that! The chatter I’ve seen the last few days has surrounded the incredible Opening Ceremony of the London Olympics, tips and support for those entering college as freshman in the fall and sick jams that you’re listening to!

1.) So let’s talk London, ya’ll. I’ll be honest, I thought parts of the history portion were a little trippy and strange. However, those moments were quickly forgotten during the breathtaking-ly gorgeous rise of the rings with the rain of hot, dripping metal. I also thoroughly enjoyed the cyclists with the glowing wings (hey there, flying bike!) and of course, the passing of the torch that concluded with the lighting of the Olympic cauldron.

My pals in the forum shared the following list of their favorite moments:

-British Literature portion

-Arctic Monkeys

-Mr. Bean and the Queen skydiving

-Sir Paul McCartney

-The Corgis featured in the Daniel Craig/Queen segment

This conversation is ongoing and is not specific to the Opening Ceremony. The thread is called “Olympic Fever” so feel free to share your favorite Olympic moments as they happen over the next two weeks.

2.) Now, for those of you entering college this fall, GET EXCITED. The college experience (especially if you get to live on-campus) is such a blast. You are officially an adult now and you basically get to live on your own and learn how to be responsible. The list of necessities that the school sends you  may not include the following items (but trust me, you’ll need them):

-Shower flops (Spend $2 and get a pair from Old Navy. Do NOT head into the shower with bare feet. YUCKSVILLE)

-Antibacterial wipes (You will most-likely be sharing a tiny room with one or two other people. AKA- Things get messy, right quick)

-Eye mask (In a room with others, someone is always awake. Block out the light of the desk lamp belonging to your roomie and get that precious shut-eye your brain deserves.

3.) The thread “What are you listening to RIGHT THIS VERY SECOND?” is a lot of fun. I’m going to be 100% honest here and tell you that, right now, I’m listening to “Lucky” by Britney Spears. So…….there’s that.
