Rutgers 2015?

So, today was interesting, to say the least...
*warning: today's blog is going to be in that long-winded narrative style I occasionally do

I got up this morning and drove to Amy's house, whereupon we went to the high school to turn in our absence notes. Afterwards, we drove down to Rutgers to attend the SAS Honors Program Open House. There was lots of food there, so Amy and I proceeded to eat our feelings. jk. sort of.

Don't judge! There were so many options, so instead of choosing, I just tried a bit of everything :P
The apple juice that they had there was good, but somewhat impossible to open, or so we thought until Indraneel showed up and owned us.

The left one shows off my skills and in the right one, Amy is demonstrating the proper technique for stabbing open cardboard containers filled with liquefied fruit. In all honesty though, it was good apple juice. Just ask Amy; she had three :)

After a bit, the other got there. Others as in Amalan, Greg, Sue, and Tony. Anvita, Srishti, and Holly were also there, but they opted not to share a table with us miscreants. Interesting fact: us East Brunswick students were the only people there who went without our parents. Weird eh? Anyhow, we tried to listen for a while, but it just didn't work out.

Greg and Amalan playing tic tac toe. Tony er....
In the end, we were left with no choice but to sneak out during break mysteriously appear at the Menlo Park Mall. While there perusing different stores and considering the purchase of a rabbit, we ran into guess who? Steph and Stanley of course! I almost convinced the nine of us to take pictures with the Easter Bunny, if not for Sue's irrational fear of the costumed creature. *sigh*

Deciding that we had been absent for a while now, we decided to return to Rutgers. It was only through sheer coincidence that we happened to be there when they began serving lunch. The food was nice, and we talked with lots of people, including this one man by the name of Dean Nazario; he was really cool. He actually managed to pull off spectacles and an ear piercing, and gave us quite a thorough background of the Philosophy program at RU.

It was snowing today!
As the luncheon came to an end, people began to leave for a tour of Jamieson Hall, one of the dorms on Douglas. However, we decided that visiting David Kolchmeyer's dorm would be a more accurate representation of our potential future dorming situations, so we drove up to Busch instead. Let me just say that his dorm almost convinced me to go to Rutgers. Their rooms are mad nice! There was however, the peculiar presence of a Lady Speedstick in their living room :O That was more than compensated by the comfiness of their couches though.

Wow, this post is really getting long, so I'm going to just give a bare bones description of the rest of our afternoon: Amy, Brooke, and I went to Easton Ave for Boba (isn't it BaBao in Chinese?) Tea where we ran into Bridget and Tesia in a parking lot. After that we went to Loews and watched The King's Speech. We would have stayed and watched The Adjustment Bureau too were it not for a Science Olympiad party I had to attend. The party ended up being crazy fun! Neil was super awesome by lending his house and cooking crazy tasty food, and I ended a night of poker with a final winning hand of a Royal straight! I'm really going to miss all my Olympians and may even consider visiting them next year <3

Somewhere mixed into my day, I cried for the first time in a long time. All in all, I hadn't laughed so hard or cried so much in quite some time; it was honestly a great day in the life of Anna Dai (note: to appease Kevin Sun, I have corrected my name on Facebook). Today was a really nice reminder of all the people I've been blessed to have met during the past year. It also completely confused me in that I have no clue where I want to go to college. Actually, you know what? Let's just bypass this whole college dilemma:
