Friday night 7 of us got together at my townhouse for a movie night and catch up session. Over oreos and candy we caught up on the crazy events of winter term and lamented that we never saw each other anymore. We may not be living together and seeing each other 24/7 but even after 2.5 months we still get along and love hanging out. It's a great example of how study abroad opportunities help get you out of your comfort zone and are a chance to meet some wonderful new people you might not have otherwise. We ended up watching Pitch Perfect, which if you haven't seen it go and do so now. Don't worry, this post will be here after you're done. The movie was absolutely hilarious, perfect chick flick for a girl's night. The girls and I are also planning to form our own all girls acapella group at Mercyhurst. Of course we can't sing, so we'll admittedly be lip syncing to the songs from the movie, okay not really but the movie does inspire the feeling you should get up and form a group.
The majority of my time is taken up by grad school applications, job applications, and homework so it's nice to take a break with great friends and remember life before things got absolutely insanely busy. Sometimes you don't have to go out and spend money to have a good time, just grab some friends, a great movie and pile on the couch and just relax.
