MU Afterdark at Arizona State University

Yesterday, I had an awesome night!
I went to ASU's MU Afterdark, which is a weekly even that happens every Friday on campus at around eight. It started off with a huge tv where they showed Toy Story 3; then, I went to a poetry reading where they read some poetry that was really great. I don't think I've ever heard such good poetry readings before.

After that, they had a comedy show, which was absolutely hilarious, and I ended up heading down to the game area. There, they have arcade machines, billiards, ping pong, bowling, and other such things. There were so many people, and it was lots of fun. I met a really cool group of people in particular, an Egyptian, a Brazilian, and a Columbian. We played ping pong for a while, and after they left, I went and played a game of bowling, getting a 111!

It was awesome. If you're ever at ASU or in Tempe, you should definitely check it out.

Quit Turning Off on Me!

Damn phone!
I don't know why, but it seems like my battery for my phone has completely given out on me. Lately, I haven't been able to hold conversations for more than a few minutes (sometimes seconds), send long text messages or even take pictures. If I am able to do any of these things, it is still very limited. It's not that the battery doesn't hold charge, it does! It seems to simply be that my battery is unable to transmit that charge into my actual phone. This sucks especially when you have to call up the court house for information or try to locate a community service place, and it definitely doesn't help that a lot of places on ASU campus are complete dead zones, using up extra amounts of battery. Even to send my friend, Isaac, a simple text like "Are you going to the gym?" or like today: "Gym?" can be a difficult and long battle with my phone. Fortunately, I'm getting a new battery tomorrow.

In other news, it's Friday! Sunday is my 22nd birthday. Oh boy! The first of my non-significant birthdays. What do I have to look forward to now? Oh... I can rent a car at 25! Woohoo! Wait... no... i'm poor. Oh, I could get FAFSA when I'm 24! Oh wait... I probably won't even need it anymore by that point... crap.... well, I guess there really isn't anything special about being older than 21. Lame!

On the flip side, my brother is coming back from the Army on the 13th (that's Monday), and I can at least have an awesome time celebrating the next pointless year of my existence. We're planning on going to George and Dragon (an English pub), and then Lazar Quest later (Woot! Drunken LQ!).

Model United Nations is also going very excellent. We recently had a club meeting (which was somewhat more productive than the first) yesterday at the MU, and now we've just got to start working towards the MUNFW, including raising a whopping $25,000 (assuming that we aren't getting any funding from the school, which we might, but we have to make sure we have the funds).

Speaking of the MU, tonight, at ASU, like on every Friday, they are holding their weekly MU Afterdark, which is an event to... I guess help us relax and have fun? Idk... they have comedy shows and bowling and even dance lessons; so it's pretty awesome. It'll definitely be fun.
