Party Time

Happy belated Mother’s Day and welcome to a new week! When I called my mom yesterday, she and my dad were at a casino and she told me that I “used to be so cute.” What can I say? The woman tells it like it is! 😉

This month is turning out to be super busy, with some of the action already come and gone… On Thursday, Chris and I went to see Captain America: Civil War. Great humor, action, and story – Gotta love those Marvel movies. Although, I’m pretty sure many years from now, the whole world is just going to be sponsored by Marvel the way things are going. We’ll walk down Marvel Road to go to the Hulk Chipotle and order an Iron Man burrito bowl before paying with Captain American Express (see what I did there?). You heard it here first!

After a full day of class (morning class from 8:30-11:30, then afternoon class from 1:30-4:30), I was already pretty tired come movie time, but ended up going to some classmates’ parties in my apartment building afterward anyway. In retrospect, maybe I should have taken it easier because a bunch of Chris’s childhood friends came into town the next day and were ready to RAGE.


On Friday, we stayed out until 4am the next morning. On Saturday, there were boozy brunches, Kentucky-Derby-watching, and ping pong-playing to be done, followed by another night out.

In a (secretly) fortunate turn of events, just when I was ready to call it anyway around midnight/1am-ish, I wasn’t allowed into a club because of the canvas shoes I was wearing (we had been out all day, so I never got a chance to change into “evening” wear). While I’m sure we can all agree that’s a generally dick move on the part of bars/clubs everywhere, I was not torn up about it and Chris and I all too happily accepted and went home. Our friends followed not-so-shortly after at 6am!


Definitely an exhausting, but fun, weekend. Let’s just say I was pretty happy to lay around quietly for the rest of Sunday before watching some Game of Thrones and Silicon Valley at night.

And now, here I am, tackling another busy week! Apart from the usual school stuff, there are a few student events I’m attending, including a spring formal boat party on Thursday – The weather is currently forecasting rain, though, so we’ll see what happens. Chris’s family is visiting next weekend, too, so it should be another busy one (that thankfully will involve less alcohol).
