So… last weekend (April 5&6) was fun. On Saturday, I went shopping in Center City with Erika. We found some really great deals on stuff, and it was great to see each other (it had been about two weeks) and then we finished the day by having dinner at iSushi — it was really delicious! Then Sunday was spring cleaning — the apartment, new sheets, and I reorganized all my drawers!
This past week, on Wednesday and Thursday, we held the Clothesline Project through the Wellness Resource Center. One of my best friends, Casey, organized everything and it turned out to be a really great success. If you want more information about the Clothesline Project, you can visit this link.
Then on Thursday night, we were able to see Bill Clinton speak for free! Thanks Temple Law! He was really inspirational, and even though he only spoke for a short amount of time (and mainly about lawyer stuff), it was a cool experience.
Friday I spent most of the day at Planned Parenthood volunteering and trying to get solicitations for our prom night fundraiser that we’re having on May 9! If you want more information about it or to make a donation, let me know!
On Saturday, Jess and I met Casey and her roommate Amanda at the Cherry On Experience. This was an event sponsored by Temple in replacement of Spring Fling. We got free t-shirts, water ice, and a lot of cool activities. We also got to tie-dye our own shirts! Jess and I raced through a bouncy house, and she beat me! Then, Nicole, Jeff, Cody, Taylor and John showed up and we played girls against boys laser tag! It was so much more fun than I thought (and hard) considering it was outside during the daylight! Then after going back to the apartment, I had to do some grocery shopping and laundry, which after the entire day I was exhausted. I spent the night in by myself eating chocolate covered strawberries and watching a movie.
Today, Kristina and David picked Jess and I up and we went to the Cherry Blossom Festival in Fairmount Park. Unfortunately, the cherry blossom trees were not fully bloomed (I guess due to the weather being so cold for so long) but there were a few that were really pretty. There were a lot of vendors, people dressed up in Asian-style clothing, and expensive food. But it was a beautiful day and really nice to be outside and together.
