For breakfast, we went to:
100 West College Avenue
State College, Pennslyvania 16801
I stole one of Cindy’s homefries. It was so delicious!
Corner Special [three buttermilk pancakes, two eggs, and your choice of bacon, ham steak or sausage] | $7.25
It was so good. The only thing I didn’t like was the eggs. They were funky tasting.
Everyone made fun of how I eat my pancakes. I usually don’t dip them with anything and eat them plain. I don’t use butter or syrup either.
But today I was a little weird and dipped them in ketchup …
No, it’s not weird at all ..
“The Original” Grilled Stickie Bun | $2.55
I shared half of this with Liliana. It was really good, really stickie. But too sweet!
We toured all over the place around campus.
Then we went to get some sweets!
119 Food Science Building
University Park, Pennsylvania 16802
Alumni Swirl [vanilla ice cream with swiss mocha chips & blueberry swirl] | $3.95
I think that was the price. I’m not a big fan of ice cream and it gave me a heart attack that it was this big! Three scoops? I was hoping for half a scoop.
Nonetheless, it was delicious. Jakob got the same flavor as me. That’s my face of fear. Ice cream coma.
We all went shopping a little bit then back to the apartment to rest up.
Then came the THONventure.
THON Opening Night … geezes. So amazing.
Inspirational. One day, this will be FTK.
I bought food at the BJC while waiting. Chicken tenders with fries and the THON Theme cup. So excited.
Breathtaking. Unbelievable. We stayed all the way until they finished the Line Dance. It was hella long but so worth it being there and being able to live it.
We road the bus back to The Corner for dinner.
New England Clam Chowder [a rich creamy soup made with Meyer Dairy cream with chopped clams, potatoes, vegetables, & bacon.] | $2.50
Mashed Potatoes with Gravy | $1.95
So good. I love The Corner Store.
We went back to the hotel and hung out sang songs and talked. It was great and getting to know them was that much better. I feel more connected to everyone on this trip.
Three different situations made me annoyed and such but in the end, it doesn’t matter. What happened has happened and all I can do is pretend everything is okay.
Day 2, check! Tomorrow we have plans to go down on the floor of THON. I’m excited. My friend is in Hospitality on the floor where she helps feed the dancers. Hopefully she’s free when I’m down there so I can give her a quick hug and hello.
Hope everyone’s weekend started out amazingly!
