Partying At “The Dome”

the weekend was interesting.  i saw a lot of people i was use to seeing every saturday night at college.  i also saw a few people i wanted to avoid, but failed miserably at.  i tried to just sit there and ignore certain creepers, but apparently i had an inviting look on my face that said “come closer, and put your arm around me.”

the best thing about alumni weekend was experiencing “the dome.”  what a fitting name for an off-campus house, because as dane cook says, “if you come there you know what the fuck’s up.”  the named dome room is actually the dj booth, the real magical room is the one behind that.  it was like being at a rave: fog machine on overload, lasers, black lights, and loud music.  but the dance floor didn’t really pick up till “i’m on a boat” came on…

shortly after a guy approaches mia madison, “will you dance with my friend he has down syndrome?”  that’s when she got scared, because he was actually something worse: a blacked out lacrosse player.  why weren’t all college parties like this?

I Feel The Adrenaline Moving Through My Veins

in one month it’s just me, mia madison, and britney.  mia once said she could talk in britney lyrics in everyday speech, so for the concert how could we not do it?  and i guess we started practicing early because with alumni weekend looming, it got me and mia madison reminiscing…

 

miamadison: wat about george?

avav: remember how him and my ex roommate kept hooking up even after they found out they were related?

miamadison: hahaha yes. gross.

 

a guy like you should wear a warning…it’s dangerous

 

miamadison: did we ever have a crush on drunk joe?  thats wat betty sue told me. she said we had the “biggest crush on him”

miamadison: i dont believe it.

avav: yeah we did, we thought he was so cute. you don’t remember? we use to get nervous when he would walk into a room

miamadison: hahaha…gross.

 

i get the tingle i wanna mingle, that’s what i want

 

avav: we need to pick out our outfits too.  we have to look good so we don’t have to “dream about all the things that never were.”

miamadison: we should do manicures too. u gotta look good, head to toe

avav: i want to paint mine black or dark purple

miamadison: “french fingertips…something red lips…BITCH IS DANGEROUS”

 

should be a fun weekend. 

 

references were made to britney’s “circus,” “toxic,” “radar,” “out from under,” and “lace and leather.”

Crunch Time

well i’m back on the east coast, and my social calendar is filling up. i love this time of year. this weekend i’m getting together with a friend to build a kickass gingerbread mansion then going to a PC vs BC basketball game as an alumni…geez i’m old.

i’ve also been doing some holiday shopping. so what do you get for the mom who has everything? a savings account for the boat “she’s always wanted.” since my dad’s semi-retired i decided to him some house slippers, just like his mother use to wear. for my sister:
Bow-dacious Clutch…in purple of course.  with a ring.  when i called to ask what size i should get, this is how she responded: “large diamond”.  yeah me too.  as for dc hero, he’ll have to wait and see.

christmas eve is coming up!! and that means a big yummy meal at my house with my dad’s family.  i would put up the menu next week, but we like to keep it a surprise…because people hate not knowing a good secret; just like i hate not knowing what my christmas presents are.  when i was a kid my mom had to start hiding them at my aunt’s house because i knew all the hiding places at our house.  i’ve gotten better but i still love to give them a good shake.

make fun all you want but i’ve got to get back to listening to josh groban and michael buble christmas music…

Time To Graduate

Last week the senior class had three events that led up to yesterday’s graduation. 

The first night was at a club in providence called the complex.  The club consists of 4 rooms, that all play different types of music.  Although I wasn’t there to witness it, the final few songs were a melody of boy band hits from the 90s, a perfect ending to a perfect evening.  I just have one tip for you, if you don’t know how to dance…no big deal, not everyone is JT….but don’t step on your partner’s feet!

The second day was at the casino, Twin River.  I saw a comic who made fun of everyone, saying we’ll all be unemployed in a week.  We also saw a hypnotist, but I that’s not real, so there’s no reason to dwell on it.  The night’s finale was a concert by the grammy awarding winning artist: Coolio.  Other than gangstas paradise, the concert was so horrible that it was humorous.  One song was called “I like girls”…it was a little repetitive and went a little something like this: “I like girls, I like girls, oooo weeee I like girls.”  And at the end of the concert he plugged his cooking show, Cookin’ with Coolio…aka the gansta gourmet.  He also has a new cd coming out called “Steal Hear.”  But the best was when he announced his age, 44!  Oh and he came back to campus and partied with some students….seems reasonable huh?

The last night was a formal up in Boston at the Park Plaza.  The dj was horrible and totally killed the mood with songs like the electric slide and the chicken dance.  But we got dressed up and looked cute one last time.

The saddest part was knowing that once it was over, it was time to graduate; and that’s what happened yesterday.  It wasn’t depressing to get my diploma, it was just sad to think that I will never see most of those people ever again, most of which is fine, but there’s those others.  The other people that you’re not quite good enough friends with to go see, but good enough that you want to.  It amazing to think how many wonderful people I was able to meet over the four years at college.  I would hate for that to go to waste.

death ain’t nothing but a heartbeat away,
i’m living life, do or die, what can I say
i’m 23 now, but will I live to see 24
the way things are going I don’t know

College Review

College is coming to end, and I’ve decided to relive the best moments of all four years right here at TMP.  Of course all times cannot be remembered in a week, so there are some that will not make the cut.  But after thinking about this for a while I can gladly say there is nothing I regret.  There are moments I’d rather not relive, but nothing I regret.  One of those being dating two guys at time.

Ah yes, sophomore year…I didn’t do it on purpose, it was never a goal like it seems to be for most men between 18-25…it just sort of happened.  It ended cause it was just way to stressful for me to handle by myself.  How do people do that all the time?  Plus I felt horrible for both of them even one was doing a similar thing to me.  Luckily neither ever found out about each other, and I still talk to them now.  Kinda weird how stuff pans out.  Oh well anyway, the college review starts next week just in time for finals. So grab your notebooks, pens, and graphing calculators this could get complicated.

Providence College

 

Providence is a city many people seem to forget about. When I tell people I go to Providence College, they ask me where it is.  They don’t realize it’s in the capital of Rhode Island; that’s most likely because, in my mind, Rhode Island shouldn’t even be considered a state.  But I’m not saying Massachusetts should take it over either, I don’t want to be lumped in with that.  Rhode has the worst drivers in the nation, as researched by GMAC Insurance.  Although to be fair, MA isn’t much better.  I wanted to start a series of posts about Providence, since a lot of readers know very little about the city.  Let’s start first with my school, PC.

You can look it up on Urban Dictionary, and most of what you read is true.  Our school’s student body is known to be rich white kids who dress like they just walked out of an Abercrombie or Polo ad (think prep school).  And although this is true about some, I know a lot of people who are different in terms of social class, but the white is pretty dominant and hard not to see.  Despite this shocking account,  our school is actually located in the ghetto of Providence.  In our section of the ghetto a 7/11 is run by a policeman, houses are constantly broken into, and mugging is a common occurrence (once a little woman robbed 7 people). 

One good thing about school is you’re surrounded by people just like you; the bad thing is that you’re surrounded by people just like you.  Everyone is so nice and polite that just discussion on a blog is difficult.  Many people have told me what they think of my posts, but they rarely comment because they’re afraid to offend me.  NEWS ALERT: It’s okay just post it up.  It might be “politically incorrect” to say, but if you see a black guy, he’s probably on the basketball team.  We have very little diversity in our study body; so to increase this, our school recently got rid of the requirement for SAT scores.  And just because we’re a catholic school, doesn’t mean we don’t drink.  Your fake id is used more than your student id, and there are plenty of close bars to crash (Louie’s, Brads, Olds, Clubbies, McPhails, McFaddens, Fish Co., etc.)  And unlike most schools, we have no frats or sororities.  We still have house parties, such as Ridiculous Fest, which is always held on the last day of classes and starts promptly in the morning.  Drinking is also a major contributor to our Civ Scream.  Civ Scream is meant to release the frustration for studying for Development of Western Civilization exams, which are only for freshmen and sophomores, but the event is really more for the upperclassmen.  It’s excuse to get drunk and streak, or jump on a pogo stick

We have some semi famous notable alumni, but the most meaningful to me is John O’Hurley, who was best known as Elaine’s boss on Seinfeld.  If you read this blog, you’ll understand.

So now you know where I’m coming from, unlike all you DC bloggers.
