First up: my Escape ticket came in the mail! Yup, I'm going to my first rave this weekend and I'm pretty excited now. I'm only going for one day, on Saturday, and it's going to be with a bunch of my friends. I didn't even start getting into EDM until I came to college, but I guess it's pretty fun to listen to to get yourself hyped up and ready to party or when you're hyper in general, haha.
This past Saturday, I went to Friendship Games for my second time. Compared to last year, there were still some similarities but also some differences. The similarities were that I was just as exhausted as last year because we had to wake up at about 4:30 AM and my roommate and I didn't sleep as early as we should have. Another similarity is that being a part of Long Beach means we're anti-friendship and this year, I guess we were pretty mean. I also got to reunite with my friends from back home who all go to different schools, which is something we did last year too. The difference with this year though is that I practically spent all day with my friends from back home instead of with my school and that this year, I had more friends from Long Beach because last year, I was just a freshman who didn't really know anybody. For anyone reading this who doesn't know what I'm talking about, Friendship Games is an event that brings the Filipino Clubs together from all over California, such as SFSU, UCLA, UCI, UCR, SJSU, CSULB, etc., and you play games with each other and make friends (except for Long Beach, haha). Long Beach is known for not really making new friends but we do play the games. Being anti-friendship is just a tradition that Long Beach has done for about the last 19 years now and we never mean any harm by it; we're nice people but it's just on this day that we're anti-friendship.
The next day, my roommate and I decided to finally go to the pumpkin patch in our city. It was actually really nice and fun to walk around and explore. And of course, when I saw the funnel cakes, I started craving one and bought one. It wasn't amazing because the funnel cake itself wasn't super sweet. but then the strawberries were a bit too sweet. Nonetheless, I enjoyed eating it and it made for a good picture, haha. We took lots of pictures and we also explored a bit of Long Beach (which you'll see in tomorrow's post!). I've never been to a pumpkin patch before so this was a nice experience.
So that's what I've been up to recently! It's been a nice week and I'm also excited for this upcoming weekend! Hopefully I'll be able to take lots of pictures and show you on this blog. Thanks so much for reading and I'll see you lovelies tomorrow!
