For the end of grub week there was a group outing planned for Club Xtreme...the first 100 girls get in free, otherwise it's $40 Bajan...they let more than 100 in free, but I was seriously 5 people away from getting in free...needless to say I planned to get my money's worth and decided the drink of the night was vodka cranberry...we got there at 10 and we were all supposed to be outside at 3:45...so it was a nice long night of drinking...we get outside and I'm drunk...but my usual happy drunk self...so I go into the ATM next to the club because it's air conditioned, but Celeste makes me come outside and it locked so I was sad. The bus doesn't end up leaving the club until 4:30 and by that time I'm tired and cranky and hungry. All of us were talking about what kind of greasy crap food we'd be eating if we were at home right now. I settled for a bag of movie theater butter popcorn at 5 am when we finally got back to campus.
The next day we had to get up around 10 because there was an island tour that was supposed to leave at 10:45...it didn't leave until after noon because so many people signed up late and nothing is usually on time here
Classes started Monday and they don't seem like they will be too bad. I'm taking Developmental Psych, Criminology, Sociology of Tourism and Fundamentals of Music. My music class only has 7 people in it and 3 of us are from California and enrolled because the course description included Caribbean music. Turns out that the professor wasn't planning on teaching the Caribbean portion of the class until next semester which is disappointing but he says he may switch the Caribbean section with the classical this semester and that would be really cool.
Last week was also "Freshers week" so there was stuff going on put on by the student's guild. Wednesday was a Beer Lime (here to lime is to hang out but they have music and stuff but it's not a full party, that's called a fete) the beer lime was kind of boring though and it was $5 for a Smirnoff, so we decide to walk down to the Esso (gas station convenience store) to buy stuff for cheaper and end up walking down to the beach from there
Yesterday we went to the movies because we just felt like chilling. It was only $3 to see cars and this theater was sweet. There were individual leather chairs w/ two armrests that reclined and had footrests! We're definitely going back there again once we find a cheaper taxi there. We got back and then we got more people to come to Oistins again. This time I ate marlin, but I think I liked the dolphin better. They also had karaoke, so Hannah and Mike sang Brown Eyed Girl because none of the rest of us felt like singing karaoke sober. It was still hilarious though.
Now I'm just chilling and considering writing some postcards home. I've been in the computer room all day because I love the AC so much. I'm going to buy my developmental psych book tomorrow. I'm such a slacker b/c I have no books and so many of the other students here have been studying since the first day. It's weird for me to not buy my books early as well. Most of the books are on reserve in the library though so once I get my id card (which still hasn't been laminated) I guess I'll go read.
