Man what a weekend. FIrst off it was my frat big bro Toms 21st on friday night (yeah I'm his little, and I'm older...weird), in any case I took him out to the bars with a few other guys. He had a good time until I lost track of him at Duffies (a local bar) and people started buying him drinks, alot of drinks. Something like 5 shots, a jack and coke, and the better half of a pitcher of beer in about a half hour he wasnt feeling so hot so I took him home. He ended up passing out on a couch, and woke up feeling better then I thought he would. He said he had a good time so thats all good.
Saturday we had regressive dinner as a rush event. Regressive dinner is when you do everything backwards so we had desert at the VUCA, then the main dish at another hall, then appitizers back here at the house. We usually round off our rush with some goofy meal. last semester is was digressive dinner. first we started off with appitizers, then we had desert, then we got distracted and played horse shoes...you get the idea.
right after that we had to vote on who we were going to give bids to join to, and that lasted 3 hours. 3 hours of decideing who we should give a bid too based on who came to rush events, and also who meet the still slightly vag qualities that make a good brother. Frankly it could have taken even longer, but all for a good cause. We ended up writing 17 bids.
Later that night I and my bro Ben head out to a apartment party that my buddies haveing(Just for clarifaction from now on in this blog when I type bro I mean frat brother, when I type brother I mean one of my actual brothers.) well Everyone gets lit but me...I want to play cards, not drink especially since I was our DD. It comes down to me and 2 Saudi guys and I'm basicly tied for the chip lead. Its 3 30am and I just want to end the game and go home. We end up having everyone go all in on one last hand. All I got is a ace high the guy to my left has pair of queens, the other pair of 8s with the flop. They split the winnings $20, $10, and I get nota...and on top of that people are slaming the whiskey i brought all night so more then half of that is gone. Well I still had a good time, and Ben had a great time so even thou I lost the poker game it was win win.
Today was mostly about homework, oh and a wicked lake effect snow storm! It dumped about 3 inchs in about 2 hours at some points you couldnt see more then 100 feet out a window, then 15 min it would be clear with blue skies, then another squal would hit, ahh I love lake effect. I also found out my cousin Tommy is engaged, with a wedding thats suppose to be in the fall some time, that will be one hell of a party.
tonight all us frat boys got dressed up to hand out bids to who we hope will be future brothers. We ended up bidding my former roomy Niles, and since we're still good friends I was assigned to hand him his bid. Problem was that he wasnt in his room, nor at the chapel, nor at the union, nor any of his usual sunday night haunts. I eventually called his girls cell, and I got him to meet in the union at 1040. He finally got his bid, and I really hope he turns it in and becomes a brother. Niles is a hell of a guy, and a really good friend, I'm sure he'd make a fine brother in our fine fine fraturnity.
SO that was alot of rambling. I bet your all wondering how I be, well I'm pretty good. I still have to pay my tuition with my mothers life insurence ( god rest her soul), oh yeah and rent, and I have alot going on tomarrow and for the rest of the week, but I did just find out a paper I was worried about is due thurs not tues so its all gravy. I've been working out, and running nearly everyday for he last few weeks, and I think its really starting to pay off. I feel more energetic, and have alot more confidence even to the point were I have to worry about being a little bit of a ass. For the first time in a while I actually feel pretty damn content with my life. My classes are all going well. probably because of my crazy roomies. I'd be to distracked to do anything here at the house so I've been going to the library all the time, and its really paying off.
Yep life is pretty good, expect this winter crap has to quit, I'm ready for some green again, enough of this cold bs,
Until my next late night ramboling post
Keep on rock'n in the free world
