Christmas Break: A Review

Happy Saturday to all. Since I am in a sorority and recruitment week starts soon, today marks the end of my Christmas break. Although my break was only two weeks long, it was a good time filled with strange encounters. Let’s discuss and review them, shall we? Please note: I will be scoring each experience on a scale of 1 to 5 chocolate bars; 1 being the worst, and 5 being the best.

Work: As I mentioned in a previous post, I worked a lot over break. Almost every day to be exact. Although it would have been nice to have some more down time, work was pretty good. I got to see my work BFF, Erma, and got hit on by a 17-year-old boy. Weird. Highlight: I used my store discount to buy some socks.

Rank: 3 out of 5 chocolate bars.

The eye doctor: I went to the eye doctor for my yearly check up over break. Super exciting, I know. My prescription remained the same and I ordered some more contacts, as well as a super cute pair of glasses (I know you were curious about how it turned out). Highlight: the ladies who work there didn’t talk about how great my brothers are like the usually do.

Rank: 4 out of 5 chocolate bars.

Christmas: Christmas was really nice because I just spent the day bumming around my house with my family. As I mentioned here, my younger brother recorded a cd of himself singing songs and gave that to me as a present, so that was something else. Also, I received a 4 foot by 5 foot canvas from the rents. SCORE!

Rank: 5 out of 5 chocolate bars.

Friend time: I love spending time with my friends when I’m at home, but I always feel like the initial encounter when we’re all together is a tad awkward because we haven’t fallen back into our groove yet. Since I saw all of my buds three weeks ago at Thanksgiving, the awkwardness was not there. Also, my friend Alexis and I finally filmed a vlog together, and I made a few new friends. Yippie skippie!

Rank: 5 out of 5 chocolate bars.

Spending time in coffee shops: I spent a lot of time in coffee shops over break and actively tried to fulfill my bucket list goal of working in one by applying to hopefully work at one over the summer. I sipped some joe, people watched, worked on my memoir, and surfed the net. Ahhh, paradise.

Rank: 5 out of 5.

New Year’s Eve: Usually I feel like New Year’s Eve is super anticlimactic, but this year was so fun. My friends and I went to a party together, and there were a lot of people there I hadn’t met before, so of course I made some new friends. I also had a solo dance party for a while, which is Classic Bekah. The highlight of the evening, however, was when an 18-year-old boy told me how philosophical and punk rock he was, and then repeatedly asked if he could kiss me, despite me abruptly power walking away from him and consistently saying no. As weird as that was, it just made sense that something slightly uncomfortable would happen to me. My friends and I all got a good laugh out of it, and luckily I made it out without a smooch.

Rank: 5 out of 5 chocolate bars.

Shaving my legs: As most of my friends know, I hate shaving my legs. It’s not really a feminist thing, but more of a I’m lazy thing. I shaved my legs for the first time in a long time (too much info? #SorryNotSorry), and I don’t feel too good about it. I shaved them because my legs will likely be exposed poking out of dresses and skirts during recruitment week, but it just felt really wrong.

Rank: 1 out of 5 chocolate bars.

As you can see, my Christmas break got pretty crazy. The main thing I learned from being home is that whether I want to or not, I seem to have a knack for unwillingly attracting high school boys. Can I add that to my resumé?

Have a great weekend and thanks for reading :)

Roosevelt Jones and Kam Woods Are My Homeboys

Happy Wednesday to all! Do you remember that one time where I sat down with Roosevelt Jones and Kameron Woods and told them jokes for about 10 minutes? Me too.

So the other night, Monday to be exact, I was in Atherton eating dinner. I say time and time again how I am a people watcher, and Atherton is where my people watching skills come alive. There are so many people, and I can watch to my heart’s content. Across the room, I saw Roosevelt Jones and Kameron Woods enter. For those of you that don’t know, they are both players for Butler’s stupendous basketball team. Anyone who goes to Butler realizes that the basketball players are known by most people on campus because they are so recognizable. Anyhoo, I saw the duo enter and sit down at a table. For whatever reason, I had the thought that it would be fun to go and sit with them and chat.

I walked up to their table, pulled out a chair, and said, “Hey, do you guys want to hear some jokes?” They both stared at me like I had lobsters crawling out of my ears, but I had already sat down, so there was no turning back. I asked them again and Roosevelt Jones said yes.

The look on Jones' face when I sat down.

I introduced myself and then started with the jokes. Kameron was hunched over in his chair he was laughing so hard, and just uncontrollably giggled the whole time. The only interaction we really had was when I asked him if he was okay because I legitimately thought he was going to choke while he was laughing. Roosevelt smiled and giggled, but he was looking at me like, “Who is this crazy girl and what is she doing with her life?” After I told about five jokes, I asked them if they had any. They both said no, so I explained to them that I like to tell jokes to strangers. I thanked them for putting up with my insanity and wished them a lovely evening, and I casually sauntered away.

Kam's reaction to my hilarity.

Thinking back on it, the whole thing was just very casual for me, which is strange because approaching two complete strangers and sitting down with them is not casual. Every time I see them now, I will feel obligated to tell them a joke so we establish a relationship and they know me as the Crazy Joke Girl. I’m also contemplating yelling jokes at them from the sidelines at the next basketball game, but that might be a bit much.

Have a great week and thanks for reading :)
