her firefly stare
Well nothing beyond interesting has been going on. Work school, all the same old stuff. Last weekend I worked the worst shift of my life on Friday, as I'm sure everyone has already heard me bitch about enough. Saturday I saw valencia and houston calls with Anna Laura, I met her in my theater topics class and we started talking. She was wearing a TRS hoodie so I assumed she liked good music, which was true, and invited her to come. Got to see Alexa after only FOREVER so that was awesome. Afterwards I met Amsa and her friends in the city for a late dinner. They had lots of trouble parking and whatnot so it ended up being even later and we went to a different place to eat. It ended up being really good though and worked out great. It was a nice night. |
Sunday I decided to do something for myself. I got up in the morning, got ready, and went down to dupont alone for brunch. It was so nice to just relax and not worry about anything. I went to The Front Page and sat at the bar. I made friends with the bartender who lives right chinatown right near McCormicks actually, had unlimited mimosas and a fabulous buffet brunch. After that I walked down the street to Joy of Motion dance studio where they offer drop in dance classes. I took a beginners ballet class. Although the difficulty of the class was ridiculously easy, my technique is very rusty so it's good practice right now. After I walked around the outdoor farmers market and went to whole foods. A very lovely day!
Well this week nothing too interesting. Work and class, Ashley and I went to dinner on Tuesday at chophouse and got an awesome discount from Tyson, our old chef who is now chef there. Friday was very fun though! Kathleen came into the city and we venture to, where else? Chinatown for dinner. Everything was packed because of the game but after walking around for a while we settled on waiting for a table at Clyde's. Luckily within 5 minutes people get up at the bar and we grab their spots. We got AWESOME burgers and drinks. This begins Kathleen's dominating me in finishing her drinks all night. Haha. We also got 2 free shots from some guys who were nice, a little creepy, but basically harmless. Sweet deal.
After that we headed to GB because I knew we'd get the hook up there. Kathleen again surpassed me by an entire drink this time, crazy. Francis came over and joined us which was cool, I haven't seen her in so long! Then Rob, the manager there, bought our entire check. ;-) I'm pretty sure he likes me, not to sound cocky, but he's been overly friendly lately and then as soon as my friend or whoever come he runs away. Haha.
Next we headed to Rocket Bar. We were drunk by now and taking is slow. We got bar seats and hung out. Kathleen got hit on hardcore by a guy that works with her dad, that sounds a lot creepier than it actually was! He's young and cute don't worry haha. Then Eric and Jacob come over, of course when I'm talking to her guy's friend. Shortly after they arrived though they start kicking everyone out. We then decide to try to get into Jackey's or Szcheuan. Oh so back story on these places, they're chinese food places that secretly serve liquor all night but you need to have an in or know the code to get into them haha, love sketchy chinatown. So we fail at both so decide to go eat downstairs at Jackey's and try to get upstairs. We fail though and Eric orders cold jellyfish. Weird. Well then we call it a night and part ways.
Saturday I was lazy before going to host at McCormick's, yea host. They conned me into that one. Not really, I just can't say no to them. That was loads of fun, especially because it was the one night we were actually busy. After I got food and a drink at GB and went home.
Today I met Carla and her roommate Erin at The Front Page for brunch again. It was good to see her! After I went to ballet class again. The technique is starting to come back to me. Then I went to silver spring, I was going to wash my car but it was such a long line that I just went to DSW and got new shoes! Nice.
Now I'm exhausted and unwinding. So Eric and I have been trying to find time to get together now and all. We have tentative plans for Tuesday night. I'm really excited to finally see if this can happen. However, I have a sort of date, well getting drinks after work thing, on Wednesday night too, with someone else. But I'm excited about this too. Of course, this all makes me nervous. And typical, there is no one at all for months and two dates in one week. I'm jinxed I think. I don't want to mess anything up with either until I can fully assess both situations. Ah wish me luck!!
