It was one of those strange weekends. I was supposed to study for my orgo test this weekend...and somehow I ended up with my cartilage pierced.
My friends wanted to go to Claire's to get their second holes and cartilage pierced, so I decided I'd come along to give some moral support. I know, I know--Claire's is not a good place to get your ears pierced. But it seemed to work out well enough for all of us.
Yes. All of us. Somehow I got sucked into getting my cartilage pierced. I don't know why I did it, honestly. It was such a last minute decision. I think I just wanted that rush of adrenaline that comes from doing something completely unexpected and left field.
Don't listen to people when they say getting your cartilage pierced hurts. It was nothing but a sting! I guess people do have different tolerances for pain, though, and I have heard that some people have thicker cartilage than others. I guess I got lucky.
My friends watched Moneyball this weekend. Second time I've seen it, and I still don't get it. I love Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill, but the movie was just too complicated. Maybe it's because I didn't grow up in a sports-y family...all the baseball talk in the movie sounded like Swedish.
I had an orgo test on Monday (didn't I just have one?) that I spent the day studying for. At night my friends and I went to a fashion show that was sponsored by all the Asian Student Organizations on campus.
I was looking forward to something like this:
...but it was more just girls wearing the shortest and tightest outfits possible. They weren't even fashionable, just...ugh.
We got takeout from a thai restaurant nearby called Summer Noodles. It's located right underneath the Granville El stop, so it's in a shady area. But the inside is so modern and chic. Plus, they make a mean pad thai.
Sunday & Monday
I'm combining the two because, due to getting only a few hours of sleep Sunday night, I felt like I was living through one very long day. One very long day of studying orgo, complaining that I didn't want to study anymore, and passing out on my notebook and getting ink stains all over my face.
I hope you all had more interesting weekends than I did. Here's to another week!
