Yesterday, I got to catch up with my friend Jessica from high school. First we went to a local Middle Eastern restaurant called Aladdin Pita but got there awkwardly early. There was no one there so we then decided to go to Starbucks until the restaurant got more crowded so we wouldn’t be the only ones there! It was fun catching up with each other and hearing the latest gossip!
When we got back to the restaurant, it was more lively and had a great time. I ordered some vegetarian shish kabobs which were very tasty! After we were done eating, we said our goodbyes and I rushed home to watch the season premiere of the show The Game that my friend Hayley is forcing me to watch. I actually quite enjoyed it so I might be a weekly viewer!
But I cannot forget that tomorrow is Jersey Day!

Last night was the big season premiere of the fifth season of Jersey Shore and it was the most boring episode ever.
The episode started with this fake drama about what rooms each of the cast members would take. Of course it got resolved with them all taking the same room they each always had the past four seasons. Then they all go to a party where Snooki and The Situation continue the fight they had last season in Italy which is really old now but of course they drug the fight out during the whole episode.
Then Vinny is randomly homesick and misses his family, although he’s like 24 and should’ve gotten over that already. He decides to go home, which makes me cry tears of joy since he’s my least favorite cast member. But, spoiler alert, he comes back two episodes later which resolves his fake drama.
At the end of the episode they had a teaser for the rest of the season which looked boring as well. The Situation got into a fight with Snooki (again), they go party, and all make up at the end. The same exact thing happened last season and the season before…. This season better get better or I’ll have to find a new guilty pleasure fast! Hopefully this is the last season so Snooki can have her own show! She’s the only reason I watch anyway!
Last year my former high school put on a performance of the play Road Trip To Iowa, and let me tell you, it was just as it sounds: boring and unnecessary. I also thought the Iowa Caucus would be the same when I watched it last night but let me tell you, it was the opposite: exciting and thrilling!
So I started watching at 6 pm on CNN and it got underway. All the anchors said it would be a tight race and they could not decide on a winner. As the night went on there were three candidates in the lead but eventually one fell to third place and we were left with Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum. Both candidates kept exchanging the lead which made for an exciting night. There was even a point where ONE vote separated the two.
I fell asleep at midnight thinking that Rick Santorum would win since he was up by 119 votes but I was surprised to wake up to see that Romney won by eight votes! According to the news, it was the closest Republican caucus in history. The only caucus to be closer was in 2008 when Obama beat Clinton by 7 votes in Guam! Who knew!?
I’m kind of mad at myself for going to bed early because I missed this television gold below when a very confused Iowa official talks to the CNN anchors!
Happy New Year! 2011 went by so fast and I thoroughly enjoyed it! For New Year’s Eve I boringly stayed at home and watched Ryan Seacrest ring in the New Year. Sadly New York is an hour ahead of where I live so I awkwardly had to wait another hour until I could officially bring in 2012! The Mayans said this will be the last year ever but I have so much I want to do so hopefully they were wrong!
I sadly already broke one of my resolutions. As the clock ticked away, I was biting my nails fervently and totally forgot about my resolution! But as of now, I am officially 3 hours clean of doing it! I’ll get back on track tomorrow, I promise!
On New Year’s Day, after eating with my family, I watched a marathon of Jersey Shore on MTV. Every day for the past week MTV has been showing Jersey Shore almost nonstop in anticipation for the new season premiere on Thursday! I’m pretty excited since there’s supposed to be tons of drama and fun! As part of my Jersey Shore viewing ritual, I plan on going to buy pickles at the grocery store in hopes of being like Snooki, who happens to be obsessed with pickles.
