I basically took no pictures this weekend. I had a few opportunities, but just didn't think about it, so I apologize in advance for the lack of pictures used in this post.
My mom came to Denton on Friday afternoon to spend some time with me. We had a yummy lunch at Mr. Chopsticks and then I showed her around Denton a little bit, and went to Walmart to pick up a few things that I needed. I showed her my dorm because she hadn't seen it yet and she even helped me decorate some more of my room! My room is now more of a shrine to Phi Mu then it already was. :]
It was so good to see my mom and spend some time with her! I spent the rest of the afternoon just hanging out and doing homework. I went and saw The Town that night with some friends from high school. The movie was pretty good overall. It was interesting, but seemed incredibly long.
I slept in late yesterday and spent most of the day doing homework. I have had a ton to do this weekend because my first round of tests are coming up in the next two weeks. In addition to the tests, I consistently have a mountain of reading to get through just because I am an English major. I ventured to a dining hall that I hadn't eaten at before because it is the only one open on the weekends. It was alright, just like the other ones are. After dinner, I decided to get out for a little while, so I took a drive down to 288 where there are a bunch of stores and restaurants. I browsed around in Old Navy for a little while. I didn't buy anything, but I definitely fell in love with a lot of their Fall pieces. I think I have been inspired for my next Wish List Wednesday!
I was feeling a little down and lonely yesterday. I think a lot of it was because there was a home football game at Mizzou. I really miss tailgating and going to the games with my friends. It's such a big and festive activity that I looked forward to every other week of Fall semester. Luckily, my good friend Chelsea called me and convinced me to go to a party with her. It was one of her sorority sister's birthdays, so I met a lot of her sisters. They all seem really nice and I had a good time. It was good to get out and meet some people!
I have just been working on homework today. My dad, stepmom, and brother came to Denton to have dinner with me and, like always, I was thankful for the company. We went to Texas Roadhouse for dinner and then they dropped me off back at my dorm. Now I am just back to doing homework and catching up on some television.
I want to wish my friends Passini and Hoban (don't worry, those are their last names) a very happy birthday! I hope you are both out celebrating right now!
Have a good week,
