I was told by Curtis a few months ago to take off work on the Saturday of MLK weekend, so I did. I asked him what we were doing and he said it was a surprise. Immediately my mind jumped to the circus being in town. Well, it wasn’t.
ASHLEY SURPRISED US WITH A VISIT!!
If you hadn’t already heard, Ashley lives in NYC now so we don’t get to see her very often. And through a complicated web of communication via carrier pigeon (and/or Facebook), Ashley concocted this surprise visit with our beaus RIGHT UNDER OUR NOSES.
So we took Ashley to get some Yatz, saw some movies, visited the family farm, painted our nails (LIKE OLD TIMES) and ate ice cream! It was such a great way to spend a long weekend!
For those of you new to the blog, you may not have read back on all of my entries (and if you have … then more power to you), so I wanted to travel back to a prehistoric time when I was a freshman.
I looked like this.
And I requested to live in a triple or quad dorm in Schwitzer Hall. Which meant living with THESE TWO:
That’s us on move=in day. Memories.
But it all worked out for throwing three strangers together. We all liked Harry Potter and none of us had a secret shrine hidden away to our celebrity crush (to my knowledge?). We got through the awkwardness of communal bathrooms and living in one room together. And dropping 8AM math classes. (That was me!)
IN FACT, we ended up living together for the rest of our time at Butler! And it was AWESOME! Are we an atypical success story? Probably. But I can vouch for living in the Schwitzer Hall basement (where the triples and quads are) because it was the best wing ever. The laundry room was right down the hall!
Oh, and to end the story, my roommates Kass and Ashley graduated almost two years ago, leaving me to continue slaving away. Kass leaves in Indy still but Ashley moved to NYC and we don’t get to see her often UNTIL…
