so we finally got back to the car, and headed towards kairshma's house! her, urooj and i stayed up to watch The Ugly Truth (which we all learned from LOL) and ended up going to sleep around 5:30am.
this morning at like 11am, kairshma calls us for breakfast. we ate delicious eggs and waffles and i walked back to my dorm to get ready for a day out at a historical manor near campus. today was the most beautiful day we've had in a while. the weather has been super bipolar and i wouldn't be surprised if there was a random blizzard next weekend. at the manor we toured the mansion and got to ride the horse-drawn carriages around the park. it was so relaxing and the house was amazing. the furniture was all victorian and basically, that's how i want my house to look like when i'm older.
and now im tired. greattt weeekend. goodnight. xxx.

and then later at 9pm we went to the gym and played basketball. MY GOODNESS! such a great workout. but i was really hungry afterwards. actually, i was pretty hungry ALL day yesterday... it was weird. anyway, basketball was a lot of fun, and i got to do pull-ups on the bar! which i havent done since the summer. after hanging out with ben so much, by the end of the summer i could do 3 pull-ups! (this is a big deal because at the beginning i could only do one!) and yesterday at the gym i could barely do one!! it was so sad. all that hard work fo nothin'. i guess that means im gonna have to keep making these late night gym trips! it was so much fun playing basketball, though. i LOVED it. almost as much as i love soccer.

Yesterday after Friday Prayers, the MSA made sandwiches, chips and tea for the homeless. Then, we went to the park in the middle of campus and distributed them to all of the people there. A big part of the charity we do is not only giving food, but also talking to the homeless and making them feel like they are really a part of our community. We've made friends with many of them and they always thank us for coming out every friday. One man who we see a lot always tells us to smile. He thanks us for the food and then he just talks about how important smiling is and asks us to smile for him.
Next time you see a homeless person, SMILE at him :)
then last night we went to a candle light vigil for Breast Cancer Awareness. it was really nice and some of us got to speak about our experiences with breast cancer (family members who have it) and how it has affected us. Breast Cancer Awareness month is over and this month is Lung Cancer Awareness month. Keep that in mind.

1am nature hikes by the river are good for the mind :)
last night we went hiking on one of the nature paths by the river and it was incredible! some of the most beautiful things can only be noticed at night. i suggest everyone take a late night hiking trip to straighten your thoughts or just clear your head. turn your phone off and look around.
