It Happened One Night. Or Two, Maybe Even Three

Hello World,

Soooooooo, I can't quite describe the happenings of this past week. Let me try and be academic for a sentence or two: school is the same old, STILL trying to get into school mode before it's crunch time. Okay, that's enough of that.

It's Congressional Black Caucus weekend in DC so people are out and about in full effect. Thursday was the kick off at The Park at 14th aka our staple spot. We had to start the night off with some Jose Cuervo and a bomb toast from Wale: "Let's toast, let's celebrate life, celebrate wealth and bypass plight for the night, drinks up." Once we got there, Pikachu came through with a round of drinks and I was on Long Island if you know what I mean. I wasn't quite the mayor of blackout city but i was teetering a lil too close to the edge. As usual, we saw some HUSL people out and about and acting brand new in certain instances. John Legend was in the building, didn't see him or his hairline but I did hear his ad-libs over Green Light (still love that song). Ended up in VIP with some familiar faces, champagne was consumed though it wasn't ours. We headed to The Diner of course. I didn't sleep at the table, though I was exhausted. The "night" ended around 4AM.
So, I wanted to take it easy for the rest of the weekend. Even though it was only Thursday, I thought I had done too much. I did some reading for Evidence and I was couchin it with Pikachu and watched a hilarious episode of the Soup. Little did I know that some of the crew were on U Street. Literally. So of course, we joined them........the most wacky unplanned night ever. It was just SUPER random. We met up on U Street, headed to Bus Boys and Poets to swoop Russell, walked on U street again, went into a random spot...the music was on point....left that spot for a ratchet house party (I was hesitant, didn't want to go in & get pumped full of lead)...it was a no-go for us anyways....then we headed to Ben's Next Door. *SIGH*
This is where we saw a Hagridesque WOMAN....She was literally 6'7" and she was wearing a dominatrix type outfit, drawing even more attention to herself. Areolas were spotted, pics were taken, one of which I'll prob make into the default pic for this post. I probably missed a bunch of nonsense from this Friday. It was quite a night. There's a huge event at LOVE tonight....Wale & Trey Songz will be there. At this point, I'm not going...but I can't say that I won't end up there. You never know with us.
2L year is starting off with a bang....just gotta focus. It's key to stay balanced though. Work hard, play hard. It's what gets us through it all.

Til Next Time,

Only the Beginning...

Well as I sit here thinking about what to write about. I honestly don't know whether to laugh or cry about the insanity that is 2L year and all the crap we've have gotten ourselves into ALREADY. Its only labor day! Despite my constant attempts to get my life together... surprise my life is anything but together.

But anyway after 3 weeks of school I think we have all been struggling to get into a reading groove. We have easily slipped into many other grooves including but not limited too couchin', brunches, trueblood, shots, partying and of course chicken! We already have some classic memories a particular group hug with Turtle at a house party being one of them lol.

Law school people are funny. Everyone has their school personality, but people seem to get a lot more interesting after a couple and sometimes a lot of drinks. Went to the Park on Sunday since labor day meant no school on Monday. Surprisingly or not surprisingly depending on how you look at it, it was a really great time. Although, K$ didn't come out and we surely missed her. The crowd was good and so was the music. I don't really recall this but the DJ dropped "No Hands" and the whole place "went ham" as the phrase goes. All in all it was a good night, that did not include being bothered by a bunch of random guys. I guess since we were with not so random guys lol. I guess that may be the way to go from now on...who knows.

I made some pretty great decisions on Sunday nite I must admit. The best one being the decision to drink only top shelf and stick to it. There was some foolishness that occurred on sunday too that might have heightened our need to party like it was our last night on earth.

Now im working on slowing down but its hard considering I don't have nearly as much reading to do for class as last year. I actually feel like I have the time to go out and do things or even stay in and do things. For instance I already plan to watch my football games on saturday and sunday, and monday night too. I think I may have finally found some sort of balance where don't have to shut out the things I love to do just to get my work done. I've really been using my time during the day wisely so my nights are pretty much free, although as the semester goes I know some nights at the library will be necessary. Sigh.

We know not what is to come, but we know we shall do it bigger and better,
