Alumni weekend and more Magic

Well, it's been like 2 weeks since i've updated... so much for returning to frequent posting lol. 2 weekends ago Jamie and I left to go visit our fraternity in western PA. They were having an alumni golf tournament, so we wanted to see some old friends (we had no intention of golfing, haha). We rented a car because we didn't want to put the miles on our cars and we drove off to New York to pick up another fraternity friend. After we picked up Adam, we went south to Philadelphia to pick up another friend to make it 4 of us. Shortly after we left Philly the rental car started shaking violently and we realized it wouldn't go in reverse! We spent a couple hours but we eventually found an Enterprise to swap cars with us. Man, I can't believe a rental company gave us a crap car. I mean really crappy...

It was about 12 hours on the road since we left when we arrived at our fraternity. We met up with old acquaintances for dinner, then spent the evening at our favorite local bar. The next day my Mom came up to visit and she and my sister and I went to a park for a few hours. It was nice of course to see family during my visit, since I really don't drive to PA very often.

Sat night involved a BYOB at our fraternity house. It was an enjoyable night until one of the girls blacked out and hit her head on the ground and had to go to the hospital. She looked as pale as a ghost! The party ended then and we set up our beds in the lounge and watched Kill Bill until we fell asleep.

If you were a follower from way back you may realize that this was the same fraternity that Josh went to. He didn't go because his girlfriend's graduation was the following week or so and he was going then. Yes, his girlfriend goes to the same school and is friends with my 'brothers' so without a doubt I expected her to blab her unintelligent mouth about what happened between Josh and I. Well no one said anything to me, but I could tell that some of them knew. One of my closer friends that is also friends with Josh didn't really acknowledge me :/ I was/am upset about the whole thing but what's happened is in the past and I have no control over that.


I've figured out that I have played magic at the card shop for 7 out of the last 8 days... Last weekend was a pro-tour qualifier, which we all played in. I went 2-2 and then dropped because I just wasn't feeling well. I needed more sleep and food to eat to be more competitive. This Saturday is another large tournament called Regionals that I will play in. I hope to do well there at least.


Work might get interesting soon, since I will be on an Agile team soon enough. Right now my manager is off for the next like 3 weeks, so I'm just keeping myself busy until then. At the end of this month it will have been exactly one year since I've started working there, WOW. I cannot believe how fast time has gone and all that has happened to me in the last year. I plan on having an anniversary post around that time since I started this blog shortly after :)

  1. Sounds like you had a pretty good time overall back home. :-) Sucks to hear that things with Josh and that whole drama is still simmering.

    What's the Agile team?
