It took me a solid nine months before I actually did this. But the last bike night of the academic year was happening tonight and I felt like I had to do it. And it was fun! I met up with David and some of his friends at his house, they made me a tinfoil hat (the theme today was time traveling crystal formal. We dressed up like we were from the future I think. Everyone had different hats, well, there were two sharks, two sticks, one two-pair-eared bunny, and I got to be Willy from Free Willy with a bent fin, haha. The event started at 9:30pm downtown SLO. And what we did was pretty much drive around downtown for an hour. There were so many bikers!! Several hundred? It was crazy, and fun! I stayed for an hour, I felt like I had to have enough energy to drive all the way back up to PCV. On the way I stopped by Slodoco and bought a donut. I felt like it was worth celebrating after my last day of class ever! On my bachelor degree anyway, I will be back in school in the fall, but that’s different, that’s because I want to.
That’s also a big thing, today was the last day of classes. Most people would probably call it bittersweet, but I actually only feel like the word sweet is flowing through my head right now. I am over school, I wanna leave this part of my life behind and start a new part.
The presentation today went okay I would say. Not the best presentation I have ever given and I actually completely lost all my words for a while. But I just breathed, apologized, read on my notes, and started again. Not too bad. And I can’t say how relieved I am that that class is over, except for the final, which I am not super stoked about, but I will manage.
I took a nap today, even after sleeping for many many hours last night. Or maybe it didn’t add up to that many hours. I went to bed at 8:30pm because I was tired and bored. I got woken up by loud roommate a few times though and the second time I had a very hard time falling back asleep. It’s nice that people can be considerate…
This weekend is gonna be weird. I have been invited to several goodbye parties, but I have a lot of stuff that I actually need to do. And since I stopped drinking I don’t really feel like hanging out with drunk people. I will see what I will do.
I think it is time for me to go to bed now, I am very tired actually. Or should I start Guild Wars 2? Tough nightly decisions.
The first Thursday every month, after Farmer’s Market, this Bike Night has been happening for the past 15 years. That’s a long time!
The tinfoil-gang and some others. Bobby, Thiago, Aarshdeep, Jen, Alex, me, David, and two others.
