I love my friends (because we are awful to each other)

Like, I cannot express how much I love my friends and how awesome and hilarious and ridiculous they all are. Whenever we hangout, especially in a big group, things are always crazy fun. Oh man, I still laugh when I think about all of the embarrassing things we did to Jerry last Friday night, lol.

Our group decided to go to Sushi Thai last Friday since Mikey got out of work later than expected, so we couldn't go to the new Indian place in Macon like we had originally planned. This was totally fine because we all were down for sushi and had a blast the last time we went to Sushi Thai the previous month. This time, we were surprised by how packed it was and by the lively atmosphere since there was a live singer performing at the open upstairs portion of the restaurant.

We had a cute waitress named Gwen, who graciously put up with our ridiculousness as we decided on what to order and made fun of each other. Most of the guys had ordered a beer, and things just got funnier afterwards when another waiter came by to deliver the drinks since Gwen wasn't old enough to do so.

Because it was so busy, we didn't get our food for a while (we didn't even get our soup or salads until most of the food started arriving!), which just meant that we roasted each other even more as we waited for everyone to get their food, lol. The best part was when Jerry said that he didn't want to touch his chopsticks because his hands were sticky, and I was just like "Yaoi hands" like it was the answer to everything, because we always joke about how big his hands are that they eclipse the sun, lmao. He made this face at me, which was when I realized that our waitress was still at our table talking to one of our friends, so I was trying to say sorry, but I had already taken a bite of my pad thai, so it was hard to say anything. Alec saw the whole exchange and started laughing, which made Harnish want to know what happened, so I had to explain yaoi hands to both him and Harrison, and the whole table died when they heard about what I just said about Jerry, lol.

During one of the times when Gwen stopped by our table, we told her about how Jerry was a Sheriff who had a reputation for slamming people in the jail, so she thought that we were talking about this when he threatened to give us his hands throughout the night whenever we picked on him. It wasn't until we were wrapping up and paying for our meals that Mikey spilled the beans and asked her if she knew what yaoi hands were, and she straight up ran into the nearest corner of the restaurant and laughed into her hands for the longest time! XD

The best part was probably right when we were about to leave, because Harnish had told Gwen that it was Jerry's birthday, and he wanted her to get as many workers as possible to sing happy birthday for him. Harrison heard his evil plan and went along with it after beating him up after she walked away, lol.

The thing is, apparently Harnish and Jerry were both in band together when we were all in high school together, and it was a band thing where they would all wish Jerry a happy birthday everyday. That's why when Harnish found out that Jerry was coming to eat dinner with us, he and Harrison started saying happy birthday to him, which annoyed him a lot, lol.

So when another waitress stopped by our table by the end of the night and asked us who the birthday boy was, we all paused for a second and immediately pointed towards Jerry because we are assholes, lololol. They then asked us who the birthday boy was, so we told them to sing to Jerbear instead of Jerry because that was his embarrassing nickname that Mikey told us when he first introduced him to us, lol.

We found out that our waitress actually sang opera from the waitress we had the last time we came to Sushi Thai, so while a group of workers sang happy birthday to Jerry, we would randomly hear Gwen singing in opera, which somehow made everything even more hilarious. And then, right when we were finally leaving our table, one of the waiters who sang happy birthday said, "I hope you have a happy birthday Jerbear!" We died laughing again, lol.

Lol, it sounds like we just embarrassed Jerry all night, but we all roasted each other throughout the night. David was acting really weird throughout the whole night, which was both amusing and odd, lol. Jerry's was just the most eventful and memorable though. Regardless, Harrison said that he's not friends with us anymore, lol. We're too embarrassing for him, lmao.

A smaller group of us went out to eat at Genghis Grill in Macon last night, which was fun. It was nowhere as embarrassing as it was last week though, lol. However, because Alec was still hungry, we ended up going to the Publix a couple of stores down from Genghis Grill and bought a pack of muffins and ended up huddled up on the only bunch outside of Publix and eating them in 50 degree weather as we talked and goofed off for a while.

I'm definitely glad that I've gotten closer to a lot of my friends that I've met or met again in college and that their friends that they brought along are also really cool and friendly.

Lol, we had originally planned on getting sushi together at least once a month, so I wonder what ridiculousness we'll have in store for March.

(Also, we plan on going out to eat in a big group with Jerry again and telling every place we go to that it's his birthday, because we love him so much, lol.)

Cover Lover 48

Ugh, there's so much homework I need to do before I go to class next week. I've got to answer this week's discussion post, answer the case study questions, read the court cases, catch up on my textbooks reading, and catch up on my other required book reading because I have to write a paper on it in two weeks. Not to mention, I have my first accounting test today and need to take my midterm for my online class sometime this week. And I'm hosting my sister's wedding shower on Sunday. D:

Why do I do this to myself? I had more then enough time to get caught up with my homework this past month! What did I do instead? Read fanfics! Ugh.

On another note, check out these cool covers. I think most of these came out last year, but I'm still in love with them.

January in Retrospect

I definitely watched a lot of movies this month. In my defense, it was with friends and family, lol. I'm glad I was able to read at least one book before classes start, because I've been swamped with homework since the first day of classes. February is going to be even tougher since my online class is finished at the end of the month, which means lots of projects and papers due before it all.

I read:
  • Cinder by Marissa Meyer
  • Glitches by Marissa Meyer

I watched:
  • Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods (2013)
  • Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection 'F' (2015)
  • Yuri!!! On Ice (2016)
  • The Giver (2014)
  • The Emperor's New Groove (2000)
  • Home (2015)
  • Voltron: Legendary Defender Season Two (2017)

My only free weekend and I'm still doing homework last minute

The past couple of weekends have been busy because I've been hanging out with friends or doing wedding stuff with my sis and her fiance. This is the only weekend for next month or two where I am free to do whatever I want before being bogged down with case studies and exams, and instead of catching up on homework like I should, since I've been slacking off because of everything happening over the weekends, what am I doing? Everything but homework, lol.

I finished watching the second season of Voltron: Legendary Defender, and it was so good. The first season really set up the plot and showcased the characters and their difficulties getting along, and it was great. It had just the right amount of humor, action, suspense, and a cliffhanger that left you burning for more. Overall, a great introductory season for a reboot.

The second season was even better. It was darker, more mature as the characters learned from the consequences of their failed plan and realized just how tough their enemy is. There was a lot of plot and backstory for some of the characters, which was great (I ship Klance as much as the next fan, but I am not opposed to Sheith anymore at this point), but I wished that there was more characterization for some of the other characters as well. The action was even more intense, and the comedy was still hilarious and amusing. Pretty much, I didn't want the season to end, because that just meant waiting even longer for the next season to come out. Plus, that cliffhanger! UGH. Why you gotta do that???

I pretty much started reading Voltron fanfics right after I finished the series, because I needed some happy fluffy fics where everything was fine (or was going to be fine, lol). That's why, instead of catching up on lots of reading for classes, I ended up reading 60k fanfics, lol.

I don't know why I do these things to myself. I'm just screwing myself over in the long run. -__-" At least I finished the discussion post for my online class an hour ago. Not like it's due tomorrow or something, lol.

Back to the grind...

School started back again earlier this week. I have night classes on Monday and Tuesday and an online class that I haven't really checked up on yet. It's so sad that I'm already slacking off. -__-" I just want to graduate already. 

I've already almost fallen asleep in both of my classes already, lol. 

Plus, the next few months are going to be stressful because Shelle and Kyle's wedding is in March, and there's so much to do if you're in the wedding party. I'm also helping host the wedding shower, so that's been a headache because of Kyle's dad and stepmom being so fucking difficult. 

Now I've got to worry about finding good wedding shower invitations and how to print them cheaply since I'm just a poor college student. 

We've been working out extra hard this week, and it really shows. We did 236 pushups on Monday, 420 jump squats on Tuesday, 170 bicep curls and 170 tricep extensions yesterday, and 240 burpees today along with warmup exercises and challenges after all of these main workouts. Tomorrow is leg day again, so I'm not sure what we're doing yet. All I know is that my legs are still recovering from Tuesday's jump squats. D:

Since school just started though, I've been hanging out with David a lot since we have a lot of free time. Obviously that's going to change soon once we both get swamped down with homework and tests, but it's nice to just chill together in bed. Naps with the bae is the best!

I found out that Shanice is planning on moving to Atlanta next week, so we're trying to get together one last down here tomorrow night so that before she leaves. I haven't seen her in months! I meant to reach out to her for the past couple of weeks during the break, but I kept on forgetting, and so many plans kept on popping up. Now I feel bad for not hanging out with her especially because she couldn't go on the cruise with us last month. :/

But yeah, that's what's been up lately. I want to watch so many shows and read so many books and fanfics before school gets really busy, so I feel like I don't remember to blog as much anymore, lol. I'll try to do better. :)
