The Wall.

16 11 2012

This is what greets me every time I walk into the kitchen, courtesy of my ten flatmates.

Well, I’ve been trying to post a picture of our wall for some time now. And here it is! Ta Da! After many failed Photoshop attempts (it’s been sick for a while now–don’t worry, we’ll go see a specialist when I get home), The Wall is being posted for public viewing. But it’s only open Monday-Friday 9am-10pm. Enjoy.

Ten things on the wall that represent our semester as flatmates:

1.) Everyone’s names, room numbers, and phone numbers. We made this on the first week in the village so we could contact each other. And no, you cannot stalk us because you won’t be able to read the numbers (one reason I needed Photoshop for this post).

2.) Phrases of the Day, such as “Are you crazy?” and “You have beautiful eyes,” in every language of the house except English.

3.) The dolphin calendar that Alex found at the pound store (like a dollar store). The only issue is that it starts on January 2013 . . .

4.) Conversion factors (1 in=2.54cm).

5.) Random articles and notes, such as “Eat all you can? So we did–and they banned us”.

6.) Orange, Thumbs-up Post-it notes, which appeared all around our kitchen with labels like “sink”, “kettle”, “spatula”, etc.

7.) A napkin that says, “Eat Me,” which was apparently not taken literally, considering it’s still there.

8.) Results from a game of Hearts between Li, Jason, Alex, and me. You can tell Alex was scoring due to the word “Sixfthhf” at the bottom. It originally said “sixth”, but he didn’t feel like there were enough “fs” in the word, due to his German-language background.

9.) The word “moist”, which Serge happens to be obsessed with for some strange reason.

10.) Some bugs taped to our wall. I didn’t say that my flatmates always make sense . . .


“If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up! Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.” ~Ecclesiastes 4:10-12
