Speaking My Mind

-Weekend Blog!

Graduation is in less than two weeks, and my life has been a little hectic in an exciting way. This past weekend I spent my days drinking and snacking at alumni events and other University gatherings with my friends and my girlfriend, hence why I did not get to make a Sunday post this Sunday. I was recovering from all the fun.

I’ve been enjoying my last days as an undergraduate though because I’ve been celebrating with people that I care about and I also have more exciting activities planned up until graduation (I have three commencements to attend), and even after. Thus, my regular blogging schedule may continue to be a little erratic until late May or the beginning of June.

Since I didn’t get to post on Sunday because of the senioritis excitement, I will at least detail the festivities I participated in.

Thursday:

My girlfriend and I went on a spontaneous date! We greatly enjoy BYOB sushi places, which is what we did at a local place. The drug store near us surprisingly had alcohol (this is a novelty experience in NJ where only liquor stores carry alcohol), and we got a wine that was less than $5! Neither of us had ever found and purchased a wine that cheap (except maybe when I was in Europe) it wasn’t bad wine at all. It easily could have been at least a $10 wine.

Anyway, it was great because we at sushi and got drunk on cheap wine. Then when we were leaving, we heard live music at a bar and so we popped in. It was a male guitarist who had a great voice. We got Moscow mules, which is my favorite mixed drink at the moment, and had a great time listening to the musician at a pretty hipster place.

We’ve been to that bar before because it’s also a liquor store, and last time we did BYOB sushi locally, we got a $25 bottle of wine there. That was the most I’ve spent on wine, but it was well worth it. That bottle was from Spain and it was simply divine.

Friday:

Thursday was an alumni event at a local bar with beer tasting, tapas, and a buffet! I got to try some craft beer and my favorite one was a key lime pie-flavored beer that I don’t remember the name of, but it was fantastic. It really did taste like a key lime pie! If you like fruity beers, such as I do, I recommend trying it if a bar near you offers it. It’s a nice flavor without being very sweet. Below is the outfit I wore as well as a picture of my girlfriend and me! She recently chopped off her hair and I’m hoping she will write a blog post about it. I would like to share it here! If anyone is interested in collaborating, let me know!

Saturday:

Saturday was crazy all day because my University has a huge street fair. It was really fun and I got two new plants!

The one above is a succulent that I liked because it looks like a tree! The one below looks like a moss but it’s a fern.

There was supposed to be another alumni event afterward, but unfortunately, it got rained out. Instead, my friends, my girlfriend, and I went barhopping! While this was awesome, I ended up spending much more money than I would have had the alumni event been going on (it was $5 open bar with beer and wine for 3.5 hours).

The alumni event that canceled was going to be a 90s party, hence why I’m wearing a Rugrats shirt and a choker. I was also wearing a 90’s color-ed lipstick which was a burgundy color called Sin. Sin was a color that was part of the Rocky Horror Show collection that Sephora released a couple of years ago that I desperately wanted, but unfortunately, they ran out of stock. At least I got to have the color, just not in the Rocky Horror Show tube!

Sunday:

I went wild on Saturday with my friends and my girlfriend, which I never do anymore. I’ve become an elderly woman and I’m okay with that. But yeah…we got home late and went to bed even later so I slept in until 1:30pm. Yeah, P.M.!!!! I haven’t done that since my frat party days two years ago, and I don’t miss that life at all.

Anyway, after waking up at 1:30pm and getting ready for the sliver of the day that was remaining, I helped my girlfriend move out of her dorm and then we got into a huge fight. It was a constructive fight, and by that I mean it was about a topic that is important in order to continue to grow together. By the end of the night, we had resolved things and now we’re great! We have a plan now to work on an area of our relationship that I’d like to improve, so I’m excited about that.

After all that, we went to a ceremony at my University where there is cake at the end! The event was disappointing, and the reception was even more disappointing, but I took a picture of the senior cake, which is pictured above.

That was my weekend!

This coming weekend will be more low-key because I will be primarily working on moving out of my apartment. I am thrilled to move out, and lately I haven’t been dreading moving back in with my parents. I’m looking forward to the comforts of home and to my room and I don’t plan to live there forever, but I will live there for awhile until I figure out my next moves!

How was your past weekend? Do you have any upcoming weekend plans?
