friends in all shapes and sizes

so this weekend was freakin awesome because one of my best friends from childhood came up to visit me! my friend nikki goes to James Maddison University in Virginia, which is about 6 hours away, so when she said she was going to be coming up i was so excited to see her because this was going to be one of the only times she would be up here untill thanksgiving break. she came down friday night, and stayed till saturday. it was probably one of the best times ive had. we went to doylestown saturday in the day. than at night we went to see my high school marching band preform since they were preforming near by. it was so sad though because as i was watching them preform, it reminded me of my colorguard days, working my ass off on that football field under the beating hot sun, and all the fun i had just being around all my friends. the shear thought of this sometimes makes me wish i could relive that moment all over again. everyone says how marching band isnt a sport, but it can be debateable. yes, there is no tryouts involved, and whoever wants to join can but it still is tons of hard work invloved behind the scenes. all the summer practices every week, practices litterally all day for 2 weeks during band camp, out in the hottest and the coldest days, throwing you wooden rifle up in the air and expecting to catch it perfectly each time. its not easy. trust me.

so anyways, back to the weekend. so after the show, i thought it would be a good idea to go home and suprise my parents because i havent seen them in the past month. and since she was going home anyway she decided to take me along and drop me off. since i live in central Jersey it didnt take that long to get home. when my parents saw me they were so suprised. it was then i realized its nice to go back home once and a while to reconnect with your friends and you life. yes you meet alot of friends at college, but its nothing compaired to the friends you know back home that you've known practicly for your whole life.

so then that sunday my parents drove me back to college and to my suprise when i walked into my dorm room, some new friends decided come live with us. Ants. all along the side wall a whole pile of ants sqirming and crawing along the side wall. so finally my ra decided to call maintaince and get it fixed so they came in today to get rid of them. thank you maintance. so that was my weekend, full of friends, family, and ants. "It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them."- Ralph Waldo Emerson


  1. i love insects including spiders and such but i can't stand ants!

  2. i do not like ants either. when we had them at my house, we had to have those annoying traps all over the kitchen
