Happy Easter weekend all! Hope you got a day or two off of your obligations to relax and enjoy the company of loved ones.
I have an exciting weekend planned and I can’t wait! One of my best friends is in town and we’ve got lots to do!
Got my free coffee (earth day special, get yours asap!) from Starbucks this morning (Bou has one too!). What would I have done without that boost of caffeine on a day like today!? Happy Earth Day 🙂
After our coffee run this morning, we all attended an anti-protest of sorts! It was at Planned Parenthood in Highland PArk, MN. Apparently every year on Good Friday, this clinic gets a whole bunch of pro-life protesters. To counter that and show support for the clinic, pro-choice rally was organized to happen at the same time. It made for such a great morning! Everyone was so upbeat (despite the dreary, chilly weather) and I felt like we really came together with the community. It was a very meaningful and invigorating experience! I loved demonstrating, actively participating, and supporting something I feel very strongly about. We marched for about an hour and a half with giant pink signs. They held an inter-faith prayer service and we even got to give video testimonials about why we support Planned PArenthood. I was so happy to be able to be a part of something so meaningful and positive. Plus, we had fun! I am hoping to get involved with more volunteer activities after graduation (when I have time and a normal schedule)
We have quite an evening planned as well! Shopping for formal dresses is first on the agenda. Our next formal is coming up just before graduation! Should I wear glitter shoes again!?
After that, we’re heading to the biggest buffet in MN for dinner–my friend is the biggest chinese food fiend I’ve ever met and this buffet is absolute HEAVEN. Check it out–Lake St/Hiawatha called the Teppanyaki Buffet–you won’t be disappointed.
After that, a fun night out with my best friends 🙂
Hopefully we get another limo to chauffeur us around town!
Saturday will include buying wine, cheese, and macaroons from Surdyks and watching hP7. I’ve only seen it like 4 times since the DVD came out….
Sunday morn means Easter brunch and doing some homework! Bummed I couldn’t go home to be with my family this Easter but they’ll be here soon enough for graduation and I’ll be home for an extended visit in June. I have quite a busy week next week to get ready for anyway! Classes ramping up for finals and the week culminating in Spring Jam.
And I have a Skype interview Monday with a school in Beijing! I may teach English there next year! #fingerscrossed
