April 27 – A College (sort-of) Weekend

Comments off 363 Views0


I am so insanely exhausted right now, but I wanted to get a blog post up before I start my day. I will start back from the other day:
.
Friday:
Drove over to Albany and got there around 9:30p. Everyone showed up roughly around the same time which was pretty damn perfect. So nice to see most of my friends from college that I haven’t seen for almost 2 years. We ended up playing a few hours of flippong that night (which did include some 16s of Red Dog for laughs), then bummed in the hot tub until 4a. I will admit that I have lost my college drinking tolerance, but as is expected I suppose.
.
Saturday:
Woke up around 10a and got a start on the day. We did breakfast as a house and then jumped over to the park. It is official…if Katie offers you directions, just ignore her =). Ended up taking a drive through the ghetto of Albany and finally found the park about 40 minutes later. O well, driving adventures are always fun. Dan and Tom ended up teaching us to play “KanJam” which was quite fun although I sucked horribly at it.

After a few hours of that and enjoying the nice weather, we headed home to grab some lunch. Along the way we found a garage sale and decided to peruse. Actually found some ridiculous stuff (batman mask, jaiger cowboy hat, a VHS board game, etc) and used all the stripper bills in my pocket to buy useless crap. Got home an hour later, at some food, played another game of flippong, then headed out for dinner/laser tag.
.
Laser tag was a blast, especially while drunk and sloppy (and no, I did not do any of the driving to, nor from, laser tag, lol). Got some food over at Chilis, then headed back for more drinking games and hot tub. Officially, one of the better ways to spend a weekend.
.
Sunday:
Did breakfast as a house then we all jumped out around 1p. I decided to go visit my friend up at UVM because it had been awhile and I wanted to break up my drive (would be 3hrs to UVM, and then 2.5hr from UVM to my place in NH). The drive up to UVM was actually kind of nice, very back roads, and I also got to take a ferry to cross some randomly river. Wish I had my camera for it as it was very scenic, but O well.

Got up there around 4p and headed out to get dinner at RiRa’s (some Irish place in their downtown area). Picked up two 24’s and headed up to play some drinking games. Played some basic Kings, and I also invented a drinking version of Crazy Pineapple. Very cool drinking people I will say, as one had some great music and they were all intelligent and laid back.
.
Monday:
Woke up way late at 1p and left to go over to NH. Was a quick 2.5hr drive which felt good. Just chilled for the night as I was super tired (and still am). A certain someone has been texting me for hours every night and messing up my beauty sleep schedule =). Finally got caught up on all of my emails and PMs, and ended up getting a full work week, lol. And on that note, I need a nap before coaching starts. Hope all is well!
