Since Cornell switched around the academic calendar, we got a February break this year! While the trade-off is dropping some days off Senior Week in May, as of now, my opinion is that I mostly enjoyed it (even if the gyms were open at the worst hours).
On Friday I didn’t have classes! (Most people still did though ;P)
Even though I didn’t do anything during the day, a sweet amie who went out of town for the weekend left me her hockey tickets so I went to the game with le copain/the amis.
^^^That’s the zamboni guy. I forget his name, but he always wears a costume :)
On Saturday, the amis and I ended up at Ithaca’s Chili Fest in The Commons! I honestly felt like I ate my weight in delicious chili. No regrets though. The best by far (in my very-vegetarian opinion) was the Moosewood’s southwest chili which came with chipotle sour cream . I maybe went back and doublefisted my second and third servings from them… awks?
^^^We kept seeing this funny/appropriately hatted couple everywhere. Lol. (Also for the first pic, the ghost pepper chili was apparently wayy spicy. The amis who ate it started shoveling snow in their mouths! )
On Sunday, Ami L and I went skiing at Greek Peak! It was reminiscent of our many summer adventures spent in Troy minus the fact that it was like 70 degrees colder. Even though my skis were way dull (…like plastic butter knife dull), my knees felt better than they have in over a year on skis and it was a super nice day to play in the moguls ;D. At night, the amis + some and I had our own Olympic games (we even had a biathlon event using a Nerf gun haha)! It was pretty great even though le copain and I (Team France) didn’t do very well.
On Monday, I was way tired and it was overall, a very frustrating day.
On Tuesday, I had a nice productive catch-up day. I ran for the first time since December, I spent way too long revising a one-page law case brief that probably isn’t good, and cleaned my room up to standard. There was maybe some Bachelor watching too…
With that being said… hope you had lovely weekends amies.
PS: Thanks for
making skimming it to the bottom ;)
