Guitar Hero, Buffalos, Mean Girls...Oh My!

Woohoo for Halloween! Let me tell you, this was a very fun-filled, drama packed weekend.

Friday: Christopher came to stay with me and showed up around 8:30pm. We had "girl talk," as he called it, until 12:30. We then joined my roomates for Guitar Hero 3......Most. Addicting. Game. Ever. I am terrible....TERRIBLE, but it was a riot.

Roomies on the couch....<3

Kait is so good, she doesn't even have to watch the screen...and D, well, D is a rock star.

Saturday: Deirdre, Kait and I got up and got around to go to Grand Valley. Chris left around 11:30am and so did we. We went to Kait's house for lunch with her parents and so she could grab some stuff for school. Then we jumped back in the car and head to GV for football tailgating/working in the Alumni tent. We got there at 2pm and worked until 7pm, when the game started. The tailgating for Ferris was sponsored by Buffalo Wild Wings and was a major hit! We helped clean up and then headed into the game....what a joke! We left at the end of the first quarter...the score was 28-0, GV. We decided it would be best to just pack up and go so we would have more time to transform ourselves into Mean Girls. :)

Kait, D, and I at the Alumni Tent....BRR!

It's a buffalo...check out his sweet shoes! He only tripped like 8 times...that we saw.

We got back to the apartment at about 9pm and it was a mad free-for-all of primping. We managed to get ourselves all dolled up and ready to go by about 10:15 or so and were ready to do photos. Derek, D's boyfriend, came over to take pictures and became our chauffer for the night.

Mean Girls! Just like the movie....sort of :)

I <3 my roomies!

The first party we went to was at our friends' apartment about 5 minutes away from ours, and it was....something. We obviously got there after it had been going for a while, and people were getting pretty obnoxious. We stayed for about an hour, but.....too many creepers plus too much alcohol= time to leave. We had to track down Kait because she had gone to a neighbor's for a different party, but after we found her, we all piled back into the car and headed to D's friends' house downtown. This party was a little slow and we didn't know very many people so we decided to leave and hit the bar.

It was costume night at the bar, always a good time. We immediately headed out to the dance floor and get our groove on. We saw a ton of people we knew, and they loved our costumes. However, things started to get ugly really fast... D ended up having a little too much to drink and getting in a fight with Derek. We didn't know the details, but we could tell something was up. Kait, KP and I all decided that it was time for us to head back, and when we found Derek and D again, she was crying and he was taking her home. Can you say, awkward car ride?

All-in-all, I would say the evening was a pretty good time. We had a blast getting ready together, but the parties/bar weren't quite up to our expectations. It's hard to not feel a little awkward at parties when you don't drink very much and everyone else is basically wasted. However, it's not as bad when you are in a group with those similar to you. There was a bit too much drama toward the end of the night for my liking, but overall, a good time. :)

Now, back to drudgeries....laundry and homework. Hope the week goes by quickly......REALLY looking forward to the coming weekend!

What's Happening....

Hello all! Yes, I know it's been quite a while since my last post. I have been pretty buried in school lately, so my blogging had to be put on the back burner for a while. I currently have about five weeks of class yet, and I CAN'T WAIT for this semester to be over. The combination of classes are causing me quite a bit of stress, but I am mucking my way through. I actually have an Organic Chemistry exam this morning, and I woke up at 6am to review again before I go. I'm now just doing a little relaxing to try and calm myself before I head over. I am seriously struggling in this class, again....I think I am missing that chunk of the brain that is wired for this stuff. Fortunately, I talked to Central, where I want to go for grad school, and they said not to worry about it. If I don't get a B this time around, next semester I will take Fundamental of Organic (easier hopefully) because that is all they actually require. Technically, the pressure for orgo is off, but I still put pressure on myself to do well....hopefully I can pull through this morning and rock this test. Keep your fingers crossed, por favor. :)

In other, less school related, areas of my life, IT'S HALLOWEEN WEEKEND!!! My favorite time of the year :D. This weekend is going to be a blast! Chris is coming to stay with me tonight and we are planning on hitting a costume party with my roomates. Tomorrow, Deirdre, Kait and I are headed to Grand Valley to tailgate/help in the alumni tent for the football game versus our school. We are planning on leaving at about half time and heading back here to get ready. Then it is out to another costume party at a friend's place. We are so excited.....we are going as "the plastics" from the movie Mean Girls. I am Regina so I will have a long blonde wig; it looks really classy, ahem white trash, with my black eyebrows. It's hilarious...I will post pics next week. : )

Some exciting news, at least I think so: I have a date next weekend! I should probably throw in at this point that Owen and I broke up a while back....he treated me like and obligation and an embarassment so I finally told him that I couldn't take it anymore. It was instant a ton of bricks removed from my chest....sometimes I wonder why I stay with things for so long when they are obviously so bad for me. Anywho....back to the happy news....Mom set me up on a date. Yup, sounds funny, but he is soooooo great. We have been talking for the last week or so for about an hour every night, and we have a ton in common; he is super easy to talk to. He is a new teacher at the school, just graduated from Central, and just bought a house in the area. He is super sweet and I can't wait for next weekend! He is coming out to the house and bringing his dog so we can take our pups for a walk, go quadding, have a bonfire, etc. OOO! If you can't tell, I'm excited. :D :D :D

So now you have two things to look forward of halloween and juicy tidbits about my date.....I know you are excited ;)
