Yesterday was my last first day of school ever. And it was pretty much the worst first day ever. Well the morning at least. See, OSU does these “Welcome Week” concerts every year with some pretty big name performers. Cool, right? Wrong. Well usually they are cool because they are in normal places like actual concert arenas or even the Oval, but no. This year, they decided it was necessary for the Band Perry to perform IN THE BIGGEST PARKING LOT ON CAMPUS. Well that’s a freaking problem when you need to park in that lot for class and it’s CLOSED all day. So there I was casually driving to campus as usual when I get to the lot and see a Hugh Jass trailer with the Perry siblings’ faces on it plopped right inside. It wasn’t even 9 o’clock a.m. and every other parking lot was jammed full with millions of other poor, innocent people like me circling around like sharks in water waiting for someone to come back to their car so we could all stalk them in hopes of getting their spot. Well let me tell you. Those people never came. And I was going to be late for probably my most important class of the semester. So what did I do? I had to park in a freaking garage. Which charges $1.50 per HALF hour. HALF HOUR. That’s one and a half doll hairs for 30 minutes. Ridiculous. But really the worst part of all of this is that I actually really like The Band perry, but now will forever hold a grudge against them for this incident, which wasn’t even really their fault. Sorry Perry sibs.
In my next class our teacher told us that be writes down hints to remember people next to their names on the roster, and that one time he wrote down “Fat Albert in the second row” for one person. Here’s to hoping I’m not that kid.
The day made a miraculous turn for the better when I met up with my aunt Judi for lunch at my favorite place ever, Northstar Cafe. That place rocks. They use all natural and local ingredients and everything is just the bomb. I get the same salad every single time I go there and keep telling myself I need to venture out but it’s just so darn good that I keep coming back for more. There is this awesome turkey on it that is literally the best turkey I’ve ever had. One time I might ask them if I can just buy a pound of the turkey to take home. Next time I go I think I will get their burger and sweet potato fries though. Because I watched a waitress walk by with a plate of that meal about 5 times yesterday and had to try not to salivate directly on her. They also have cookies that are literally the size of your face. So what wouldn’t be good about that?
Remember that class I told you about where we get to cook in the labs? Well we have to wear aprons during the lab, and our professor told us that she wears one that says “Kitchen Bitch” on it. Brb, still dying.
