Friday night I hung out with my girls at Mellow Mushroom, played the hot or not game and chilled the rest of the night at their place. It was so nice to get off campus a little while and spend time around people that make me feel better or at least distract me from my stress :)

Rookies serenade us with their song
The rugby alumni game was super fun. Although its weird to tackle your own teammates I felt like I had some experience in that the first game of the season I substituted for the other team's eightman (I think it was for Greensboro) and had to tackle my team then. Either way it was nice to play again and I felt more like a team player especially since I got the ball three or four times :) I almost made a try and so did Diane. She was sooooooo close. All in all my favorite moment was the rookie song and having all the alums on the field with us. It was such a homey feeling in a "family back together again"feeling.
Tailgating was fun too. I kept asking myself "why haven't you done this more?" I finally got to hang out with Alice after trying for over two months. It was really great to relax among good people eating, laughing, taking pictures and most importantly enjoying the experience. I'm all over that now especially after my rough transition from fall break to going back to class. Meltdown on Friday confirmed I needed another break. So this weekend did the trick!
