November 16 ----
Waaah it's been less than a week and I'm posting again! So this week was actually pretty eventful I think. Well, at least the weekend was. Wednesday and Thursday were spent p-setting and playing badminton. The week was kind of chill, so I even had time to go running twice. Jesus christ I am so out of shape, but determined to stop my freshman 15 in it's tracks! Anyway, on friday night we went to the z-center for a bit and played against some pretty boss people (I swear it sounds like we play badminton a lot more than we actually do.) Afterwards we were pretty freaking tired, but Maseeh was having a party so I dragged myself out of Simmons and walked with Weiwei there where we met Chan and his Korean friend who was visiting. The dance floor was dark with clumps of people just standing around. The only people who were dancing was a girl in the back facing a wall and a stripper on a table. I think it might've been a cross-dressing guy. Right after him some girl got up and basically ripped off her bra, then danced around holding her boobs. That was our cue to leave. Before we made it out the door, some guy told us we should've been there for the professional stripper (because she was soooo good) which meant that the people currently stripping were students. Lmao, it was kind of hilarious since it was a dorm not a frat.

I'm currently stuck in some mad traffic on the way back to Cambridge, so I figured now's the perfect time to blog about my week off! Actually, it's because I already slept for almost four hours and can't sleep anymore haha. Anyway, Wednesday was technically the last day of classes, but i hopped on a bus as soon as classes were over on Tuesday. I thought I was going to miss my bus so I made Kevin and Chan semi-run with me to the station (whilst pulling my luggage for me). In the end I made it no problem, and settled down for a long ride. Left Cambridge at 4 pm, and after some bus-train-car shenanigans, finally arrived home at around 1 am. It felt so indescribably good to be home! Had the best sleep ever in my own bed, followed by the best shower ever. Then I drove (I LOVE DRIVING) to pick up mara and go visit the high school! Talked to a slew of teachers, including my old math teacher who told us she had to deactivate her Facebook because of some inappropriate pictures…whoops. Also tracked down Mr. V who was at the powderpuff football game and learned from him that my last creation in his class (the giant clay sculpture of birds nesting in my head) blew up into smithereens in the kiln. It was pretty distressing since I spent so much of my time on that, but at the same time oddly relieving since that meant that I didn't need to glaze it! My emotions were so conflicted. V saw it as some sort of metaphorical representation showing my cutting of ties with them. Anyway, we met up with Nicole too and went to grab some Coppola's pizza for lunch. MAN, they do pizza right in a big way. When I left for college I honestly didn't really think I'd be homesick in anyway, but I guess I didn't notice how much I missed it all until I finally got home. Anyway, we caught with each other's lives, but I had to send them home since I had a s&k scheduled with Emma! That stands for sit & knit by the way. Yes, we are young women and enjoy knitting. I finally cast off the scarf that I started making in sophomore year. We calculated that to be one sixth of my life spent on knitting that scarf. How sad. Anyway, we talked, laughed, and swapped some good college stories. My mom's home-cooked dinner was absolutely delicious! Even though I'm currently experiencing the college 10, I still stuffed my face. I'll work it off later…At around 9, I hopped in my car and picked up Schendt, Nolan, Nicole and Matt for some RED MANGO. Spoiler alert, it was closed. My precious white peach would have to wait :( Instead, Nolan thought it'd be a great idea for us to go to the swamp. I thought it was an awful idea, but for some reason I ended up driving there anyway. Holy Jesus the road was narrow and deserted. Everyone kept saying that it was the kind of place where people get killed. Thanks a lot. Eventually Nolan got the message that I wanted to get out of there, so he directed me onto another road which was somehow sketchier than the last. He even admitted to me that sometimes he bikes along that road and thinks he's going to die. Great. We eventually ended up at the Diner, where I split a happy waitress and effectively ate my second dinner. Sarah showed up halfway through and afterwards we headed to Nolan's where we learned a new card game called Yuker.

So I'm currently sitting at an Asian party finishing up this post. Sorry everything seems so choppy and random, my memory is jumping all over the place. Anyway, today is New Year's Eve! I can hardly believe the year is over, but it's definitely been a great one filled with good friends, both old and new. Should be heading over to Nolan's soon to rush in the new year with everyone, here's to another great year! :)
