Social Diary: An econ major with a serious girlfriend and a serious case of senioritis

Tuesday 15

I flew back from New York City this afternoon. I spent my weekend at UPenn’s version of Dillo Day, “Spring Fling,” which was completely wild, before heading to NYC to deal with stuff for the consulting job I’m starting in August. When I got back, I headed to Bar Louie for dollar burgers, then hung out with my girlfriend.

Wednesday 16

Since I have no class on Mondays, Wednesdays or Fridays, I woke up late, then played a little soccer with my housemates. I’ve lived with these guys since freshman year in Elder, then Bobb, followed by two off-campus houses, fortunately or unfortunately! So basically, I wasted my life and hung out all day. It was great. At night, I watched a movie with my girlfriend and the guys.

Thursday 17

I had a couple classes, then went to dinner with a friend who graduated last year and is working at a Chicago consulting

firm. Talking to her made me realize how much fun college is and bummed me out that I’ll be done soon. Plus, senior year is basically a party; what could be better? I was like, shit, I wish I could just chill like this forever.

Friday 18

After sleeping in pretty late, I had lunch with a friend and spent the rest of the day hanging out near the Lake, chilling and just sitting around. Then I went to dinner at Pete Miller’s with my girlfriend, followed by a movie.

Saturday 19

I headed to Old Orchard with my girlfriend and my housemates. We just dicked around there for five hours, not doing anything of consequence. My girlfriend and I went to dinner and then to Bill’s Blues, because we have a friend who bartends there. We spent the rest of the night playing beer pong.

Sunday 20

Today I went back to Old Orchard. So much Old Orchard this weekend! Then my girlfriend made sandwiches and we had a lakeside picnic with some wine and the guys. We played soccer and then I went to an early dinner with a friend I haven’t seen in a while. A few hours later, I went to dinner with my girlfriend … I guess I go to dinner a lot …

Monday 21

Shit, what’d I do today? Well, I had a make-up class to go to, and then I slept for the rest of the day, just because I wanted to. I had an intramural soccer game at 9 p.m.; it was a tie, nothing too exciting. Afterwards, I went to dinner with my girlfriend. I feel like I eat pretty often.
