I was going to just stay in this Saturday, but I was stopped on my way to the music rooms by some friends who were headed to the party at the MajApp (the old Major faculty apartment). The theme of the party was Mad Men, and everybody was dressed in slick 1960s suits and dresses. When we went in, everybody was even dancing like it was the ‘60s. There was even a live jazz band, which my friend George is in. It was a really nice event. The MajApp always hosts great parties with themes such as “Freshman Girls Dressed as Cats” (for Halloween), Titanic, and Spirit Animal.
Then, I went to Diner B with some friends. Diner B is when the diner serves breakfast late at night on Fridays and Saturdays, and it always attracts a huge crowd. I also bumped into my friend Anna and another friend from high school, Maggie, who goes to Colgate, which was a lovely surprise! The jukebox is also always put to good use during this time, and often the students break out into dance and song. This time, while we were eating, the song “Take Me Home, Country Roads” by John Denver came on, and the whole diner started singing along. It was a great moment.
Then this morning, I went to Dunkin Donuts with Anna and Maggie and caught up some more, which was great. Now Anna and I are in the library doing work and drinking Red Bull… time to go be productive!
