April 27, 2018 – Holy Holi, Batman (OOTD #274)

What’s this? Haven’t I already done an OOTD post for April 27?

That would be correct! I have. This, then, is part 2 — the sequel, if you will.

April 27 was a massively busy day for me, but all in a good way. It was one of the last days of classes, meaning that a lot of my remaining schoolwork wasn’t due until finals week and could theoretically be put off until later.  Needless to say, I took advantage of this.

It was also a Friday, which, this semester,  I ended at about 2pm, meaning most of my afternoon was pretty open.The first thing I did after my classes let out was get a new ID card to replace the one I lost a week ago. I’m still surprised it never turned up. Meanwhile, my missing shoes are also still MIA.

There was a “sustainability festival” going on on South Quad, and since it was a beautiful day, I decided to stop by. My decision was also influenced by the fact that they were offering free plant seeds, which, if you’ve been following my slow descent into plant madness over the last few months, you’ll know I was very excited for. I now have a pot of 4 o’ clocks in my dorm room waiting to sprout.

After that, some student organization (can’t remember which, oops) was putting on their version of the Indian Festival of Colors, Holi. That’s were all of my pictures here are from, and why I decided to bother with a part 2 to my April 27 blog. They were too nice to just throw at the tail end of another OOTD or Saturday Musings post.

Later that evening, there were some food trucks on South Quad offering free food, so you know I was all over that. And later still, the Chainsmokers were giving a concert in the Joyce Center that I got last-second tickets for from a kid who was no longer able to go. Being totally honest, the concert was probably one of the lamest I’ve ever been to (they barely sang! They had practically no instruments! I mean I know that’s how EDM works but I guess I’m just not a fan), but it was also cheap, so I can’t totally complain.

It was a very nice way to wrap up the school year. I mean, it wasn’t a true wrap up — I still had half a week of classes and an entire week of finals still to stagger through — but I was able to pretend for an afternoon that I was at college for the purpose of having fun.

Thanks for reading, and I’ll see you in the next one with more updates on my life at Notre Dame! Don’t forget to check me out on Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook, BloglovinTwitter, and Tumblr! For business inquiries, shoot me an email at lensembledujour@gmail.com!
