“It’s the weekend,” I happily thought as I laid in bed last night. Now, this doesn’t sound all too remarkable, but for me last night it was like this great relief-sparked epiphany. This feeling doesn’t come too often for me namely because A) I’ve never really liked the idea of longing for the arrival of two days of the week when you also have five perfectly good days to be happy about and B) the weekend usually doesn’t equate less work as half of it involves kung fu practce. But last night, for the first time in a while, I admit I did get that much-celebrated TGIF feeling.

Yesterday after Ryan and I finished our lab early we bummed around my place before meeting up with Greg to see Team America World Police at the Neptune. After enjoying puppet fight scenes we had dinner at Tokyo Garden (hence the tempura sushi entry below). Later that night, Greg, Val, and I went out for a drink at Flowers where the waitress wouldn’t let us have separate tabs and Greg finished my beer, haha. It was a good way to end the week.

But then there’s all the events before all that. I planning to write (actually I did write but did not post) a whole summary of the last ten days. Like going to Come Together Washington and writing about how viewing the exhibits around the arena felt like we were wading in the center of academia, or about hearing Bill Gates speak or the new sense of pride and admiration I have of this university. I was going to write about Chris’ birthday surprise dinner at Bucca di Beppo’s last Saturday and getting my laptop back from the Apple Store. Then there was section about going home last Sunday and going to mass with my relatives, remembering how involved my family (and extended family) is in the church, and talking with my Dad and a nun in the sacristy about last week’s events. Was going to write about my god-brother’s going away party where I ate some bomb pancit and flan. I think there was a section about going out with Irene, Chrysti, and Val to IHOP the other night for pumpkin pancakes and how my annual pumpkin-obsession has officially begun again. Then there was a little section about how fun it was doing our Securities project and the social engineering success we had after an evening of digging thru discarded admin paperwork. But, it got really long. The end!
