Fall Break was made for Birthdays??

Fall Break was a BLAST!!! It was great to have a mini break from my studies, since as we all know it can be a bit draining at times. Even though I stayed on campus, I still managed to have a lot of fun…. So don’t always feel obligated to always leave campus

when there’s a break. Most if not all of my friends stayed on campus as well and we celebrated not 1 not 2 but 3 birthdays!!! I am obsessed with birthdays (you should have seen me on mine). I don’t know what it is or where it came from but birthdays always get me extremely excited. So luckily, three of my friends were celebrating birthdays over fall break so my friends and I had a weekend filled with activities.For birthday number one (which kind of tied in with birthday number 2 since they were on the same day) we went rollerblading in Sellwood, which is not far from the campus at all. You just hop on the RAZ that well… goes to Sellwood dinner1.jpgdirectly from campus, it’s literally as easy as that!! We ultimately wanted to go to the amusement park, but unfortunately it was closed for the fall but we still had enough fun at the skating rink. I think the last time I went rollerblading I was about ten years old, so it’s been a while. I will admit, I was a bit rusty but you really do get the hang of it after a while.

For birthdays number two and three, we went to dinner at Romano’s Macaroni Grill located downtown.. The food there is really tasty, there’s a little something for everyone if you’re kind of picky about your food but do resto2.jpgkeep in mind it is an Italian inspired restaurant, so if you don’t like pasta then you probably won’t want to check it out. But I’m always satisfied with the cuisine there and the best part… you get to color on the tables… what more could u want =)….

At the end of the night, we went over to my friend’s apartment in Roberts. She’s a junior and one of the beccabday.jpgbest parts about LC is that the small community really does govern the way in which I made friends here. I remember in high school I was solely friends with people in my own year rather than in the year before or after me. At LC it’s completely different; even though the majority of my friends are sophomores like me, I still have a large number that are freshmen, juniors and seniors. We’re all different, whether we’re from different countries, ethnicities or backgrounds, but it’s great having those different perspectives to analyze and rethink your own. My absolute favorite part of fall break was playing TABOO… I love taboo and even though my team lost on more than one occasion, I still had the most fun losing/ coming inscott.jpg second place. I was taught not to be a sore loser, and well I really am not that good at games and yet I still enjoy playing all the time.

Well I must depart until next week of course…keminiman.jpg
