2009-11-24 I-Tunes Night
As much as we all complain about the I-House (and believe me, there can't help but be complaining when there is power drilling outside of your window Monday-Sunday before 7am...), we all benefit from the convenience of living in the same building and being able to hang out at a moment's notice. It's been awhile since I've lived in a dorm (erm, I mean "Residence Hall") setting, and I am enjoying the ability to knock on a friend's door and then spend the evening sharing music with each other.
A few weeks ago, that is just what my friends Maz, Hana, and I did. We started off by playing each other the most random songs we knew, and then quickly progressed to showing pictures from our lives back home. Who knows what goes on in the guys' side of the wing, but for entertainment that night we each took a stroll down memory lane and busted out photos from childhood, prom, the early days of college, and ones of our pets.
So many times here we get caught up in the busyness of life in Seoul that we really only know the surface story of each other. At best I know where someone is from, and if I'm lucky, what school they go to (When in doubt, ask which UC...). This was a great chance to get to know the musical tastes and a bit of the back story of some friends, and was an evening that could just have easily happened back on campus in Mac. It was yet another example of how sometimes the simplest of evenings can make for the most enjoyable ones.
