We have only been back for a few days and it has already begun. Please excuse my grammar for this post, I'm still feeling the effects of last night pretty good. I have been getting material left and right because things always seem to happen while I'm in the right place at the right time. For example, the other night I was leaving the Gables with a friend and we were approached by some kid. He seemed bit lost, probably drunk, and his friends were looking at the Gables map between South and A tower. "Excuse me," he said, "Can you tell me how to get to 32 Young Drive... are we close by?" The first thought that entered my mind was, is there another Young Drive that I don't know about? We then explained that they were at the opposite end of campus and gave the directions. Ahh, freshmen.
And in other news, last night, or today actually, was my one of my friend's 21st birthdays. This is a kid who lived next door to me freshmen year and we have had a lot of great nights together. To put it simply, I have never seen anyone so drunk in public before. We got to Scorps at about 11:50 and he was let in early. 30 minutes and something many shots later (including one tsunami - which was appropriate due to the weather) he was asked to leave... by Radar. Yes, that Radar. It was the first time I've ever been with someone who got 86ed and it was hilarious. We left just in time too because it was an adventure getting him back to our DD's car. I mean two of us had to basically carry the kid. During that time, I was recognized as the New Hampshirite by someone who checked out the summer project. I wasn't sure how many people saw that yet, but it was really funny. I think I thanked her many times for reading and I hope I didn't come off as an asshole because of the situation. You know, being that guy who has to drag his friend out of Scorps. In short if was one of those nights that can been filed under the "hilarious college adventure" tab.
Stay classy not UMassy.
(PS: hey UNH, thanks for the beach day on the first day of classes.)
