After a string of uneventful weekends, this weekend was so much fun… And right before finals, too! Who would have thought?
After work, I met some friends for dinner because I was famished after not eating much for most of the day. Then, I went with a friend to pick up pizza for the end-of-the-semester Creative Writing Club pizza party. Then, right after the club meeting, my friend Missy and I went to a dance showcase at my school. The biggest club at our school is the dance club, and they are the best because anyone can get involved and do a dance. They prepare for months for the showcase every semester, and there are multiple dances that perform. I had never been to one of their showcases before, so I was really excited. I loved watching everyone’s dances, and there was a familiar face in nearly every dance. It was evident that everyone worked really hard, and you could tell everyone was having fun with it, too!
It was a cold night, but Missy and I braved the cold… In my car. It still counts.
After the showcase, we drove around and listened to old music we love and screamed the lyrics at the top of our lungs. It turned out to be a huge destresser, and it also made for a pretty funny Snap story.
On Saturday night, since we’re all leaving for Christmas break on different days, my friends took me out to dinner for my birthday. My birthday is next Friday, but since I have a final on that day, I was looking forward to this little celebration so much! We went to a diner right in town, and the food was pretty good! Then we came back to the dorm and had some ice cream cake, and they sang “Happy Birthday.” After that we watched an episode of Bob’s Burgers. It was such a lovely time with my best friends!
Later that night, and by later I mean at about 11, I was talking to my parents on the phone. I was thinking about going home on Sunday, but my parents were baking cookies and my dad mentioned (*bribed me with*) the cookies and the possibility of coming home that night. Victoria heard me talking about cookies on the phone. As a spur-of-the-moment decision, we decided to take a road trip back to my house. We ate cookies with my parents and we all talked until about 2 in the morning with Christmas music playing all the while.
The next morning when we woke up, we went into a doughnut place in town that we had been to before, and got a half a dozen for breakfast. Victoria and I both got an Oreo doughnut, and it was divine. Especially with coffee.
We studied for most of the afternoon, and then after having dinner with my parents we had to head back to campus. The spontaneous trip was so much fun and unexpected, for some reason it got me into the Christmas spirit even more. Maybe it was driving past all those Christmas decorations on they way there and back, maybe it was just being home. Now, even more so, I’m ready for finals to be over and to go back home. Only five more days.
Also, before I sign off, today is my one year anniversary with my blog here on WordPress! I had blogged before on Blogger, but a year ago I decided that I needed a bigger change, and I’m glad that I did! However, my old Blogger is still up. The link is in my “About Me” if you really want to read some embarrassing old posts from my Freshman year of high school.
And on that note, I’ll say goodbye and good luck to all those students out there who are taking finals this week, too! We can do it, only five (or less if you’re lucky) days left!
