I went to Seasons 52 for my pre-birthday celebration with my cousins, brother and boyfriend. It was coincidentally the Grand Opening the night we had reserved! The whole experience in the restaurant is great and if you have not gone before, you should really check it out! I received flowers that were HUGE from the staff and a cute card and memorandum (they took a group picture for us and printed it right in the restaurant…and stuck it in a frame!). The food was delicious, especially dessert! (:
The piano man was great too. He played “Roar” by Katy Perry and “1000 Miles” by Vanessa Carlton (the guy’s accent was great). It reminded me of the movie “White Chicks,” hehe. I went home with my brother and boyfriend afterward and got to see my parents and the great gifts they received from my boyfriend since he just came back from Hong Kong after being there five months to see his parents. Apparently he and my brother went to the Chicago Fashion Outlets in Rosemont the day before to get me gifts, so I was quite surprised to see what I came home to! I always forget you get gifts on your birthday…(you can tell I don’t celebrate it too often besides with cake). My brother got me these pretty grey-and-purple Nike shoes and then my boyfriend got me a purse from Tori Burch (he won’t tell me the price but I’ll get it out of him, then think of a more brilliant gift once his birthday rolls around…I better save up).
I got to start my MCAT restudying and play some Grand Theft Auto 5 (I’m terrible but the story is sooo good). I wanted to accomplish more out of my weekend, but I don’t get to go home that often with my new job and other responsibilities so I figure I deserve a break!
Speaking of my job, I have been working this week like crazy since I got to take my birthday weekend off. I am going MWF 5pm-2am this whole week! >__< I am not awake for my TR 9am classes, lol! Oh well, it’s pretty exciting to work in the ER. It’s just tiring because I stand and sit a lot and my eyes strain from the computer screen…but still enjoyable that I don’t really think about being tired or hungry during that time. (:
All right, this puppy has got to sleep! Anatomy and physiology exam 2 is coming up…and selection of next semester’s classes too! EEP. Can’t believe it. @_@
Okay, NOW I’m going to go work…peace out UIC.
