I don't know why I am sort of embarrassed to say it but I am obsessed with Game of Thrones. I don't want to give away any spoilers or anything but it is such an addicting show. I love the overlapping plot lines, the costumes and the English accents (even when they are a bit off). I was totally resistant to start watching it; a friend gave my roommate the first three seasons and I reluctantly let her put one episode on when there was nothing on TV. It takes some time to get into it in the beginning. We had to re-watch some episodes and look at some websites that explain how everyone is related and where they come from. Once we got the hang of it though, we were totally hooked. I am halfway through the second season and I am getting nervous to reach the end of the third. The fourth season isn't scheduled to air until early 2014 and that's still a few months away. I am thinking I may have to read the books in the mean time and see how they measure up. Normally I like to read the books before watching the show or movie, but I am glad this time I made an exception. If you are looking for something new to get into on TV and want something with plenty of episodes to watch, I highly recommend Game of Thrones.
This weekend I am going to be interviewing applicants for the class of 2018. It is absolutely crazy to think I will not even be at school anymore when these students start in the fall. I wish them the best of luck in the interview process. It feels like yesterday I was in their shoes and I am very grateful to be sitting on the other side of the table now.
