So Sunday was Pi(e) Day, because the date was 3.14, and pi = ~3.14… Yes, we’re geeks. But anyway, of course we had to celebrate with pie. This was just a good weekend. It started out with me slipping on the stairs on our way out on Friday. That hurt. But it quickly got better. We went to Adorn with Summer, and afterward, hung out with Jake. Then Saturday was pretty much spent studying… for the most part, at least, minus my pre-/mid-study blog, eating lunch, and our evening. Since Alona wasn’t home, I took over as Christine’s roommate. That was nice. We spent most of the evening making decor for the pie party, aka, signs with pi(e) puns, and watching Mulan.
The next day, we went to church, and then went to Farmer’s Market to buy the wonderfully delicious strawberries. We got some pies while there, too–blackberry crumble and peach. The pie man didn’t even realize that it was Pi(e) Day… Man.
So back at Christine’s house, we got started on making some pies. We made a strawberry pie (with the fresh strawberries, of course) and a cream cheese pie.
Christine and I decorated the apartment with the signs we had made, and waited for our friends, whilst watching That Girl, with Marlo Thomas. It’s really cute and I want to watch more!
Finally, Ashley, Jesse, Gaby, and Shea came, along with a delicious apple pie made by Shea. We were ready to dig in. And we did. I love that nobody was shy to eat pie. It was the whole point of our gathering, after all. Plus, we realized that we hadn’t really planned anything else to do, so it’s a good thing that we had pie, and that eating it was the main attraction.
Later Rachael came by, and then Summer for little while. Now that I think about it, we really didn’t do much else besides eat pie and talk. And think of pie puns. “Don’t des-pies the pies.” -Rachael.
Later on Stephen, Jake, and Rory came. They got pie too, and joined in on trying to think of more pie puns, so that was good. After some more pie-eating and talking, we played Mad Gab. “Pie-ous people only.” -Stephen.
Pi(e) Day was a great way to end the weekend. I had been drenching myself in Industrial Organization and tea all week long. I found that I actually liked reading my IO book, which was weird because it’s econ, and I didn’t think I’d actually find an econ class and textbook that I enjoyed. Maybe it was all the tea. Last Wednesday, Summer and I studied in the library (and actually got studying done), and I remember that I hiccuped and she thought that I said her name since she was wearing her head phones. It was pretty amusing at the time. I don’t know what it was about the hiccups, because then I got them again on Friday when I was over Christine’s apartment. They wouldn’t stop, and I couldn’t control them. I finally held my breath until they went away. Then on Monday…
Oh I love them. I hope I don’t read this in like ten years and think, Psshh, I can’t believe I was such good friends with those girls. Haha. That probably won’t happen though. It’ll probably be more like, Man, they’re still just as weird… Haha, YUP.
Christine and I have a goal to fulfill. We want to eat, at least once, in every place in IV before we graduate and move away. We’re getting there, but we’ve still got about 15 or so places to go. But we’re determined.
So that about sums up the last few days. I had my first final for my ed math class yesterday, which went well. Now I just have to worry about game theory and industrial econ tomorrow night and Friday afternoon. Lunch with Annika and Christine tomorrow too, since we’ll be on break next week for our usual lunch. We’ll have to figure out a time for next quarter though, since Annika’s schedule is different. Because I really love our lunches. Even though I’m super broke right now. Maybe we should start cooking, haha. That would be cheaper… And I’m bummed that I’m missing home group tomorrow night to take my final. That’s pretty lame. But then Friday I just have to take my last final, then Summer and I will be off! Yay for spring break.
Well I better get back to studying. But I’ll leave you with some advice that I overhead in my game theory class a few weeks ago. (This is what happens when you sit in the back…)
