Well to start off, I've actually been kinda busy with school and all. Mainly my photo class. I like it but it keeps me busy since it is all crammed into 8 weeks. I had to go to Bangkok last weekend to get some color slide film developed. That trip was actually pretty fun. I traveled up there by a bus with Kelsey and we were meeting some of our friends up there at a hostel. We arrived pretty late in the night so I just hung out with people in the hostel and then went to bed. The next day we traveled the sky train, its like the metro link for those in STL but its above the streets, like in the sky, hints the name. So we all explored the malls and the streets of Bangkok. Craziness, that is the best way to sum it all up. So many people and the traffic and the smells
Well a couple highlights of the past weeks, there was a jam night that some dudes from Webster were able to set up a "gig" down the street and we all went and hand a really good time chillin and rockin to some awkward song covers by students. It was all in good fun. The other weekend the was this "ICE BREAKER" party hosted by Webster, ended up being a really fun time. Plenty of good dancing and then topped of the night with karaoke. If you all were wondering, yes I did end up doing some karaoke, I kinda got pulled into it when looking for a song, I'm a little ashamed to say it, but I did karaoke with some friends to, "Like A Prayer" by Madonna
This past week was the mark of the Chinese new year, learned a little bit about that, you are not supposed to clean on that day, the 7th because you could sweep out good luck that the new year has brought. But you have to clean you whole house like the day before so you can clean out all the bad luck. Yeah there is a lot to do with luck. But the other day I cleaned my room cause there was sand all over my room. I really hope I didn't sweep out good luck. How could it be, there was sand, dead bugs, and hair. And of course no matter how many time I swept there was still sand, so irritating. It then gets in my bed, shoes, clothes, I'm gonna end up carrying all this sand back the States and have to check it at customs haha. Wow I'm lame, but I'm sure I make you all laugh. Yeah when I write in here I think of all you reading this. You were probably getting a little bored of my writing about boring ol Thailand so I thought I'd slip some jokes in there, keep you all on your feet. Plus I feel I owe it to you since I have not written in awhile and I'm sure you all are on your toes everyday wondering, "when will Josh write, I need to read his blog and see pictures to make me forget about this cold cold snow in St
Well this past weekend the highlight was going to a house party that was not really bumming until we arrived. It's true, we came to dance so we took control of the music with the host permission first, but it was great she was all down for dancing. Unfortunately it was just a small group of us holding it down for awhile but I showed them all moves they had never even witnessed before, I think I made history there.
Yesterday I was able to video chat with my whole family, which was so great. And for all of you reading this that were there, I seriously loved seeing you all, it made my day/week. Let do it again real soon.
