This week I have not had classes or work because it is URI’s spring break. I have spent my days sleeping watching netflix and hanging out with local friends. I would have to say this has been a very successful detox from stress. I have not done anywhere near the amount of homework I had wanted to do over the break but I still have tonight. You may be wondering why I didn’t say I have the weekend, I am going on a little road trip to Bethlehem Pennsylvania to visit one of Kyle’s friends at Lehigh University.
Last weekend on Friday I went to the trampoline park with Kyle, Justin D, Ben and Jacob. All of them went to high school together and I had just met Jacob that day at chipotle, Ben I met over a month ago at a party but I didn’t really know them. On Saterday it was a full day of the guys and me who went to a Chinese buffet, the pet store (where I fell in love with a Beta fish that I did not take home), the beach and then back to my room to watch Sharknato 2. (not as good as sharknato but maybe the third one will top the stellar performance of movie one.)
This weekend had to be one of the fastest friendships I have made in a while, I get to spend the road trip time with the same guys (minus JD who is building a house in Arkansis with Courtney Abbie and habitat for humanity) I a so ready, the last bit of packing will be done when my laundry comes out of the dryer, I have almost 5 hours of music offline on a spotify play list, snack food packed and all around eagerly antisipating a wonderful weekend off campus.
(I am going to put all the pictures at the end of this post.)
Yesterday was rather fun and long as days go I had a councling session where I was told I? do not need as much councling so I will only go twice a month instead of every week. I had the RA interview redo and I think it went well, possibly better than the first one so fingers crossed that I get the job. Then I decided it was time for a hair cut so I looked up cheap places to get a hair cut and got on the bus with my back pack filled to entertain me. Thank goodness because I took the wrong bus and went outbound to Providence then looped back to Wakefield where I had wanted to go. It took like two hours when it should have been less than half an hour. But I got to knit a little and read through my geology notes. I got 10.5 inches of hair cut off and feel beyond adorable now with my short spring hair cut. In the waiting room I talked to some very nice people who treated me to lunch at panera then I went on the bus back to school and watched Bridgett Jones Diaries on netflix while making Geo flash cards. It was an all in all good day.
Today I volunteered with GRRL Tec, a Rhode Island program to get highschool girls intrested in STEM careers. I moved tables and walked girls to a seminar on personal finance, then handed out their lunches. I got a free Tshirt and lunch. My breakfast buddy Elizabeth asked if I wanted to go to RISD with her and of course I did so I spent the afternoon looking at art.
Tonight I want to do a forum post for film, fold laundry, finish packing for tomorrow’s road trip, do the online chem homework and the Stats homework that will be due monday and tuesday and need to be done before I travel.
I am so excited to see Kyle, and my mom and leave campus for a few days. I may do a bonus post on Monday if the trip is good and I don’t feel like sleeping forever when I get back to school and have a 7am shift at the dining hall 😦
As a reward for reading through (or just scrolling) Here is a picture version of my week.
I am donating my hair
