Well, usually, Sunday Funday involves drinking but after our alcoholic weekend we all needed to detox. I got brunch with Kate and her roommate who also went to our high school and I’m friends with and tried to recap the night which was impossible with 3 blurry minds– it just equals one big blurry mind. I ate probably my body weight in food but I always thinks it’s validated because it’s Sunday and I’m depressed from the weekend ending, I’m hungover, and I pretend like I’m hardly going to eat the rest of the day after it. The last statement is a big lie and I end up regretting eating so much Monday but whatever. Then, Brittany, Alex and I went to the baseball game because it was so gorgeous out. Baseball games are so underrated at Penn State. I liked it a lot…Something about baseball is so relaxing and it always just makes me so happy. It was nice to do something outside and actually sober for once. Peter and Lauren joined a couple innings later and that’s when WE all tried to recap the night before. Once again, a little bit of a failure but with 5 of us it was a better attempt than with Kate and her roomie. PSU won and then it was time to eat (haaa told you) so we went to this cute place, Baby’s, downtown. It’s a 50′s type diner with the classic burger, fries, and milkshake hot items on the menu. I tried to be a little bit better than the normal there and got a veggie burger but I’m sure it wasn’t that much better. While we were eating, Alex thought of the idea of hiking Mt. Nittany. I was SO down for this because I’ve always wanted to do it and it’s something every single Penn State student has to do. Plus, the weather was so gorgeous we had to be outside. 2 other members of the “group” joined us and we all drove over to the mountain to take it on. It was hilarious seeing us all hike up this steep incline, so hungover and tired. Hey, at least we were doing something healthy together! When we finally got to the top, it was a beautiful view. It was nice to just take it all in and enjoy the nature. It’s nice to get away from everything for once. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE drinking and partying and such but it was calming to be in a quiet, relaxing place with all my friends. A bonus was forgetting about school work too. We really wanted to watch the sun set but figured one of us would probably die on the way back down in the dark so we packed it in. We all went over to shower but agreed to reconvene later that night. It’s nice this year that I hang out with my friends SO much more than last year. Last year my friends were mostly guys and I’d usually only hang out or even see them, except in passing, on the weekends. Now, we have a group text with all of us and someone usually suggests something for us to do. It makes me feel a lot less alone, actually not alone at all. Before, I would get very lonely and that’s when I would want to go home and really miss my family. I’m not like that at all now. This is the way it’s supposed to be. If you’re doing it right then you’ll not want to go home. Not because you don’t like your family or anything (I’m blessed with an awesome one) but it’s just life here is so unbelievably sweet that you don’t ever want it to end. That’s how I am now. Anyways, we just went to Jessica’s boyfriend’s (Chris) apartment because all of us are in dorms except Lauren and Jessica and their tv is broken SO we took over Chris’ apartment who is on the rugby team. They were all at the rugby house drinking so we had it all to ourselves. YES, you read that correctly- we passed up on a party for once! See, we do have SOME self control. It was definitely a nice chill night that we all needed. Can’t say I cannnnotttt wait for the weekend though.
