Chloe's Chat: A weekend to remember

The weekend of Oct. 14 through 16 was both busy and very fun.

After getting out of class late on Friday, my friends and I went to a late dinner at BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse in the Eastwood Towne Center. It was insanely busy but we had gotten there just in time.

My face was still super numb from receiving nine local anesthesia injections that day for school (I am in the dental hygienist program), so drinking and eating were not easy tasks.

Because I was broke after spending maybe too much on my hair appointment, I strictly ordered off of the Happy Hour menu, not realizing in tiny letters it read “only available at bar and patio.” I was not sitting at either of those, so of course my drinks and food were three times more expensive than what I had thought originally.

In the morning on Saturday my boyfriend Kobe and I went to a celebration party for his grandpa’s birthday and others’ birthdays, anniversaries and weddings happening in October. There was a ton of food, drinks and games for everyone.

We spent a couple hours there before wandering over to the tailgate parties at Michigan State University, which luckily were only about a mile away. We were going there to attend Kobe’s work tailgate, Pure Options. This tailgate took up three parking spots and included a DJ, open cooler, beer games and more food.

There we met up with more of our friends and partied and danced until about 3 p.m., when the tailgates started to close because the game was starting.

Sunday, I had two exams to study for on Monday, so I spent the whole day doing that. Well, most of the day. That morning my dog had accidentally scratched my eye, so around 5 p.m. when it was still irritating me and only getting worse, I headed to Sparrow’s Urgent Care. The staff there prescribed me some antibiotic eye drops and gave me tetracaine for my eye.

I’m the biggest baby when it comes to eye drops, so this was like my worst nightmare. It was a bad ending to an otherwise very fun weekend.
