Free Food And Good Times

I love Fridays even though they are the longest days of my life. But the people in it makes every Friday tolerable.

I went to the CPE bright and early to do some FTK work before class. And free breakfast was given to me! Yum!! I didn’t eat it all because it was dang heavy for a morning meal but it was dang good! Bacon (which I’m not a fan of), beans (which makes you fart), potatoes (which I love), sunny side eggs (which weren’t so sunny), and veggies (which made the potatoes yummy).

Then I went to take my Guitar Test. Got an “A”! Whoop! Then went to take my Vocal Test and did HORRIBLE! My accompanist who I’ve never practiced with wouldn’t go to a lower octave for my song so I had to sing it higher. I sounded like a dying cat! Sad smile

Lunch was served at the CPE! Make your own sandwiches and broccoli soup. Broccoli soup is fattening so I was sad but it was so good and warm in my tummy!! Went to Leadership Challenge class then the FTK meeting.

Went to Habanero’s yet again! Yums! We sat there chilling and talking and it just felt nice. I really enjoy their company. Now all I have to do is learn to be nice to people so that they’ll be my friend. Winking smile

Patricia, Shayna, Andrew C., Eric S., and I hung out at Eric’s afterwards. We watched an episode of Workaholics. It was hilarious and I can’t believe I’ve never seen it.

Then we played a few games of King’s Cup that soon turned into games of Truth or Dare. WTF, right? That game sucks because I never have good questions to ask people and it makes me share too much about myself. Hopefully what we shared really does stay in that circle. Embarrassing …

Then we played Just Dance 3 on the Xbox Kinect that soon turned into the boys playing Fifa.

It was a fun night even though it was just the five of us. Sometimes that’s all that’s needed. Not wasting money on clubs or bars. Or getting knocked over because of crowds. Just a chill night with great company.

Saturday, I’m ready for you. Homework. Basketball practice. Possible Girls Night with FSA.

Happy Saturday! Smile

Life Is Always Better With Great Company

I was at school from 8am-around 6pm last night. Friday’s are my long days and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I’m surrounded by people who love doing what I love to do. They are selfless and hardworking. I’ve wonder how life would be for me after I leave them all. College hasn’t been the best of times for me but this year, even with the ups and downs, it hasn’t been that horrible and possibly my best.

Last night after the meeting that ended at around 6pm, a group of us went to Habanero’s. This is only 1/3 of the group. Tim J., Andrew C., Gary, Sarah S., and moi.

Patricia and I shared a Dosarita? I’m not too sure how to spell it but it’s a Dos mixed with Margarita. I’m not a fan of anything but beer but I was willing to give it a try. This ish was strong and was thankful when other people helped with it.

The real fun then began … with my tipsy self suggesting Laser Tag.

We played two games. First game was crazy. There were a lot of little kids who kicked our asses. And us college kids formed alliances. I was so happy to see that I got 12th place out of 27. That has to be good right? The score is horrible though. Smile with tongue out

For the second game, it was an Ironman game so it was longer. We started out having an alliance hence my name “YELLOWRNGR”. But then we all just split up and it was every man for themselves.

I got tired of running around and “saving” my life. I got 3rd place out of 14 though! I was surprised. The other people who we didn’t know were cheaters and just bleguhhh … yucky.

I was told I was 4th for the whole day. Ain’t that cool? I guess I am actually good at Laser Tag but those horrible memories always made me think I sucked. Now new memories are made and I am in love with it!

We look hardcore, no? The group minus two that went. Open-mouthed smile Sarah S., Jakob, me, Liliana, Andrew C., E. Sanchez, Marisol, and Gary.

By this time, it was POURING out but the night was still young so we ran to our cars and all headed to play BINGO! Life complete. I’ve always wanted to play bingo with a stampy thing.

Andrew C. and I’s pile of stamped stamperoonies.

2012-02-04 00.36.37

Jakob and Andrew C., went to get beer. Bloop bloop. Beer and bingo … it’s the only way to go. We decided we will be doing this when we are old and grey.Winking smile

And on the second to last game, I won!! I would have taken a picture of my winning bingo but they took it away from me. $150!! minus tax. Whoo weee!

Sad story. Last game = cover all for $500. A lady called BINGO when Andrew C.’s number was next on the monitor. So close yet so far away. Heartbreaking.

But it’s okay because we will, will, will, be back! And we are ready to win it ALL! It’s so addicting. A new high. Open-mouthed smile

Life is always better with great company. Amen.

Holocaust Museum

I went to the Holocaust Museum on November 30th. I learned a lot.

A survivor of the Holocaust came and talked to us. I feel real blessed to have heard her story, thanks to her son. Her son had cancer and just before he passed away, he begged his mum to write and tell her story so that their future grandchildren will remember it.

Sorry .. blurry picture from my camera! That’s me, Holocaust survivor (Rose?), and Kim.

It was a small museum but VERY educational. That’s what they wore when they were imprisoned in the camps.

We were told we could go out on the balcony to check out two sculputres. My friend Andy here thought this was the door to go.

He was wrong. Locked to the maxx. It’s just a funny picture/memory. Smile with tongue out

I’m not too sure what the one on the left is a sculpture of but the one on the right is a lady behind the barbed wire and she sees a butterfly on the outside. The butterfly is in color signifying freedom. It’s a really good piece.

I’m thankful for having a chance to come here and learning so much. Open-mouthed smile

Then we went to Habanero’s. That’s a lot of burritos … but it wasn’t all of it. We had the Leadership Challenge class from college as well as high school. Mmm so yummy! There was also queso and chips on the table.

All free.

Score! Smile
