This past weekend, I got to join this amazing group of engineers on their Big Bear trip. Even though I wasn’t part of their club and they were all friends, I was welcomed. I felt like I was in school again, meeting new people, partying, doing random things; it sucks to be back home when everyone is still studying. I also tried snowboarding for the first time, and at the end of the day I was exhausted and hurting, but it was definitely worth it.
For my first run ever, Andy made me go down an intermediate slope. The first part was steep as fuck and when I looked down, I was kinda freaking out. Of course I started off wrong and fell pretty bad, but I got up and tried again. We did a few more runs together, maximized our meal vouchers, watched/listened to Sean Kingston perform, did a run with Steph and Izzy, and then we went on a new slope that was a bit harder, but I ended up doing it twice. It was quite a big accomplishment for me, and it meant a lot to hear my boyfriend say he was proud of me and that I was a pro.
After that we went back to the cabin, and they cooked so much spaghetti. Then drinking round two, basically to sum it up: korean drinking games, friend shots, massages, Andy hurting himself, beer pong team, serious heartfelt talks, old school dance music? The weekend went by too fast, and I can’t wait to come back. Big thank you to Andy, who invited me to come and stayed by my side the whole weekend.
