Friday Fun! (Busy Week, Happy Halloween)
Oh boy what a busy week it’s been! It was great to get to see Team Unicorn last Saturday night, even though not all of us could be there. The pizza was yummy, and Kristi’s apple cake was absolutely scrumptious! We played Apples to Apples, and it was great to see how well (or not well) we all knew each other. On Sunday E and I took our friend Nina out for her birthday to an excellent Thai restaurant. All of the food was simply amazing. My appetizer was this goat cheese, walnut, and grape pate. It was to die for. Then for my main course I had lemongrass tofu with jasmine rice. And our drinks! They were so fabulous. My first one was a gin drink and came with this cucumber garnish. Then after that we all had blackberry sours. I think I may have found my new favorite girly drink, haha.
The beginning of my week was full of grad school. I finally went to a full session of class healthy enough to participate. That was good! Then I had a big paper to write, which was what most of my time was spent on. Last night, I went out for live music and karaoke with my friends. Nina and I sang Poker Face, and it was awesome. I have 1 paper, 2 projects, 2 handouts to design for my students, 1 cataloging assignment, and TAing online until the second week of December between me and graduation. I can’t wait! But I’ll definitely be busy in the meantime.
I hope you all have super happy Halloweens, no matter how you decide to celebrate.
