This weekend, one of my closest friends (who happens to be a day student) invited Antigone and me over for a sleepover. It was Antigone’s birthday last Thursday, so it would only make sense for our little group to have a birthday celebration.
When we arrived, we unpacked and watched The Amazing Spiderman 2. We bundled ourselves in layers and layers of covers on her big lumpy couch, accompanied by surprisingly authentic tasting Asian food her mom cooked for us. It reminded me of home.
We proceeded to play UNO, an extremely competitive card game that brings out the beast in all of us. It’s tough to say, but we all were on our A game. Not to mention singing T-Swift songs to get us pumped. And here’s a picture, just in case you guys were wondering how Exonians spend their weekends.
To put things simply, I had a great time. We all had a great time. Just this Monday, Olivia came up to me before English class and said, “My mom says she misses her two other daughters.”
It’s tough being so far away from home, and so close to the holidays, but it’s so nice to have something brighten up the winter term; something that you build from the friendships you make here at Exeter. Especially if that something includes jamming out to Blank Space and munching on the good ole roast chicken. A nice little pre-holiday fun.
