Spring Breeeeak.

16 Mar

I’m posting super late/not on my day because Honey Badger doesn’t give a shit. (Thanks Cathy for the inspiration!)

Besides not having my car for 2+ weeks (And still NOT having it), this week has actually been filled with quite a bit of exciting things! For one, on Friday myself and some other students ate lunch with RAY CHEN after seeing the masterclass he gave at Jewell. The masterclass was pretty baller for one because I was like 15 feet away from a Strad Violin (they cost millions of dollars and produce amazing sounds), yeah Ray Chen uses one of those. Then Sunday was his recital at the Kauffman Center. It was sooo hoss, bros. The bad thing is that watching a performance like that just makes you want to practice a lot, which might actually be a good thing. Anyway, after the performance you can get autographs (I can feel you all judging me at this point). So I stood in line and as he was signing his name my program, he looked up and was like “Oh hey! It’s nice to see you again!” Yeah, he remembered me from when he was at Jewell. NBD. Then I got a picture taken with him (see my new profile picture on FB). Also since it was free concert, I invited my step mom and dad to go since they had been wanting to see the Kauffman Center because they had never been. The whole time we were there my dad was like “Ray Chen could be your future husband!” Totes querd. Then when the performance started and he walked out on stage my stepmom leans over and says to me “If I were younger I would totally go after him.” Also totes querd. I realize he’s a nice looking Chinese Male, but to hear that from your parents in that strange way is totally awkward! Anyway after all that fun-ness…. we went to eat at the Ameristar Casino Buffet. Aweee yeeeah.

Monday night Kendyl and I went to Morgan’s house, made milkshakes, watched 17 Again, and just chilled. Before we knew it, it was almost 3 in the morning, so we all decided it would probably be best if we went home. lol. Tuesday I went to Target. This was also the day One Direction’s album came out! And it was on sale at Target for 8 dollars!! So i bought it. It was a good investment, fo sho.

Wednesday Kendyl and I took a little road trip to CoMo to visit Lei. Pretty much the whole way down, Kendyl was quizzing me on Anatomy, specifically the muscles that move the arm. I made a wrong turn at an exit because I was trying to concentrate on finding the answer to the question she was asking me. Anyway, once we got to the Columbia area, we went to Shakespeare’s for Pizza. Nick came to visit and took some pizza from our plates. Then we went on the Mizzou Campus and Nick showed us around the Rec Center, which was freaking awesome. That took like 20ish minutes, then Nick had to go study (SURPRISE). So we wandered around campus by ourselves. We visited the quad but we were too scared that we’d look like noobs to take pictures on the Columns. So we just sat on some benches around the quad for a bit and enjoyed the nice weather and made fun of the hipsters playing Frisbee on the quad.  Then we went to get Boba at a Bubble Tea shop. I had a coffee slush boba. It was delish. It was Kendyl’s first experience with Boba, and it was interesting to watch her psych herself out about the bobas. LOL! 😀 After that we went back to Lei’s Gparent’s house, ate dinner, watched part of “Holes” then watched J. Edgar with Leo Di Caprio. That movie was interesting to say the least…. almost like Broakback Mountain, so Lei told us anyway… I haven’t seen that movie before.

Then today (technically yesterday) we went to see the Lorax. It was such a cute movie! Totally recommend it! Then after, we went back to downtown Columbia, and Kendyl and Lei made “cool story, bro. tell it again” t-shirts at a really cool “make your own t-shirt” store. I didn’t get one because my money supply isn’t very high at the moment. lol. However I will definitely be going back there to make some tees in the future. They had some previously made t-shirts hanging up on their walls. One in particular that I thought was awesome had a Hogwarts Crest and said “Hogwarts Alumni Class of 1998” tee. I want it so bad.  While we were waiting for their t-shirts to be made, we went to Sparky’s for some tasty homemade ice cream. I got Chi Tea ice cream. It was delish, fo sho. Kendyl got a Red Bull shake. I will have to try that sometime. Then we just kind of wandered around the downtown area for a little bit. We went back to Lei’s Gparent’s, ate dinner then decided that we should probably head back to Pimpdence because it looked like it was about to storm soon and it was getting dark. Driving back, Kendyl said it sounded like rain was hitting the windshield, but it was actually just bugs getting smashed by my mom’s car.

That’s all for this week, bros. Keep it real!

Spring Break is almost hereeee.

8 Mar

Hey guys. Guess what. It sucks not having a car. Tomorrow my mom is coming to pick me up after she gets off work because my cousin’s car is still not fixed. Hopefully I’ll have it back by the weekend or shits bout to go down.

Besides that news, not too much has happened to me this week.  I peed in a cup as well. Donated some blood today at school (there was a technician guy that looked an awful lot like Andy Roddick, but more football-player-ey rather than tennis player). On Tuesday I basically went to symphony rehearsals for no reason because I’m not playing the piece that they played because I’m not at that level yet…. yeah. But I suffered through the sight reading and it felt like I only played 30 measures of the 15 paged piece. They’re playing another piece for the next concert that I should be able to play, since it’s not as difficult.

Tomorrow I’m going to leave my psych class like 10 minutes early because there’s a chinese australian violinist (his name is Ray Chen, if you were wondering… at all. lol) that’s giving a masterclass. So I’m going to see that because 1)he’s chinese, 2)he’s a violinist,  3) he has an accent, and 4) because he’s a pretty good looking chinese violinist (“good looking” and “chinese” are rarely ever in the same sentence when it comes to chinese males). Also he’s going to eat lunch with some music students so I might go to lunch for that. AHHH. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a little bit excited. He’s giving a free performance at the Kauffman Performing Arts Center on Sunday so I’m going to go see that probably with my Dad and Step-Mom. Super stoked for that too!

Spring break officially begins next week. And to be honest, it has been long overdue. I’ve had too many late nights to count. My cousin comes into town next weekend so I’ll be spending some time with her to catch up and whatnot before I have to come back to school. And me and Kens are planning on taking a road trip to Columbia to see Lei at her GParent’s house. But for the most part, I’ll be sleeping in a lot. Except for Tuesday because One Direction will be on the Today Show, so I’ll probably be up for that! 🙂

Hope all’s well, broskis!
