Hi lovelies! Welcome back to my weekly blog feature, My Week in Instagram. Now that I finally have my own laptop I’m in the process of catching up on my Instagram posts, among other things. I should be back on schedule in 2 weeks, so please bear with me!
These two weeks were my 7th and 8th weeks of school at Chapman. On October 13th Chapman hosted Kunal Nayyar (the actor who plays Raj on The Big Bang Theory) as their annual Fall Speaker. I *love* The Big Bang Theory so I obviously had to attend, and lucky for me one of the lovely ladies that I met during transfer orientation wanted to go so she and I had a chance to catch up for the first time since before the semester started! We got in line to see Kunal early enough that we each got a copy of his book and got to have him sign it! I really wanted to slip him one of my business cards when he was signing my book just in case he ever needs a harpist for a lavish party or something, but sadly I thought better of it and just enjoyed getting my book signed lol
This was also the time when I fell and hit the back of my head and gave myself a small concussion, and had a lovely case of vertigo to go with it! In case you missed my post about that, you can catch up here.
Kunal was an amazing guest speaker and I'm so glad that @ritanicole94 and I were able to see him. My takeaways from tonight were to remember to make time for yourself and have some fun but still work hard for what you want, to be optimistic and be humble. Oh, and kill people with kindness! @lifeatcu @kunalkarmanayyar #ChapmanU #guestspeaker #TheBigBangTheory
I got to meet Kunal and also got a signed copy of his book, "Yes, My Accent is Real ". His book looks like it should be a fun read, now I just need to have some free time so I can actually sit down and read it lol @lifeatCU @kunalkarmanayyar #ChapmanU #guestspeaker #KunalNayyar #booksigning #TheBigBangTheory #collegestudent #musicmajor #harpist #musician
Hey world, remember that conversation I had with you the other night about the weather and how I wanted some? Well, that still holds true but can you not look all dark and scary when I have no umbrella and am wearing thin little ballet flats to walk to campus in? Thanks! #weather #stormclouds #darkskies #stormy #California #southerncalifornia #socal #metrolink #collegestudent #musicmajor
Heading home from school earlier than I wanted to. I had planned to stay and see the opera performance at my school tonight, but I decided not to push it. Today was my first day back to school after falling and hitting the back of my head last weekend and getting a small concussion and terrible case of vertigo, and after trying to practice harp, going to class, and doing a shift at work today I'm ready for some sleep. Plus all this moving stuff hurts my head and makes me feel kind of dizzy at times. #collegestudent #musicmajor #harpist #musician #commuterstudent #trainride #metrolink #tired #USMCwife #marinewife #loveandwarclothing #concussion #clumsy #clumsyasfuck
