bop, bop, bop, bop

Ladies and gentleman, I had the longest day in the history of preschool teaching. The kids have been absolute terrors this week aaaaaand today was the absolute worst! I had to deal with not one, but three temper tantrums! One resulted in me being covered with milk/food, the other resulted in me being kicked…repeatedly and the last just fucking annoyed me. Kids *sigh* I love them, but at times I can’t freaking stand them! Because of my long exhausting day, I skipped derby practice tonight. Instead, I’m in my pj’s drinking beer and watching netflix. I’ve been into random documentaries lately. Currently watching a documentary on  retired wrestler, Bret the Hitman Hart.

*shrug* Not sure why I’m watching it. I go through weird tv genre phases. I guess this is the “random documentary” phase.  The other day I watched a documentary about parking lot attendants.

 

My birthday was wonderful. Ate some cake, hung out with friends and I participated in my first scrimmage. My derby league split  into two teams and scrimmaged each other. It was pretty intense and a lot of fun. My team, the green team, was down two players. One was injured and one was sick, so we had no alternates to come in and relieve us. It was pretty tiring playing the whole time!  My team was in the lead the whole time, but ended up losing in the last few seconds by 3 points. 3 POINTS! It was a good time. Here are some pics!

That’s me! Blocking. Just before I  hit the pink team’s jammer!

Got stuck behind a wall while jamming!

roadtrip recap

Last weekend recap!

Me and the bf began our road trip last Thursday. Destination-Boston for PaxEast, with stops in Philadelphia, and New Haven, CT.

Thursday-Got off work, dropped Peanut off at the kennel, and hit the road to Philly! The drive to Philly was 6 hours, so by the time we got there it was already too late to really do anything. We checked in to our hotel, and decided to have Philly cheesesteaks at Tony Luke’s! It was recommended on some travel blogs I read and it was on Man vs Food! Last time I trust them.  The bread was SO hard and the meat was dry. Not good at all. I should’ve listened to the local who told us there were MUCH better places to have cheesesteaks. After the fail cheesesteak, we went to Eulogy, a Belgian beer bar, and had some drinks. I fell in love with this place because it reminded me of the little cafe’s I always went to in Amsterdam. The beer list was amaaaaazing and had over 400 beers. I had 2 beers, which was more than enough for me considering their 10.0 ABV. Went back to the hotel and proceeded to pass out.

Friday-Woke up really early because we wanted to see a few things around Philly before we started our next leg of the trip (Philly to Boston!). We walked along the waterfront at Penn’s Landing, and saw some cool ships including the HUGE and very old SS United States. After walking around and getting some breakfast there, we went to Philadelphia Art Museum, not to see art, but to run up the “Rocky steps”. Remember this scene from the movie Rocky? It was filmed here so…we had to!

After that, we hit the road to Boston. We should’ve made it there in 6 hours, BUT I saw an outlet mall and had to stop. I picked up a dress, a new top, and the bf got some shirts. Successful pit stop? yes!  We had another pitstop to make too, but it was planned. I wanted to stop by New Haven, CT to see my Great, Great, grandfather, Sengbe Pieh’s statue which stands in fron of their City Hall. My family has gone multiple times for dedications and memorials, and I’ve seen the statue in pictures, but I have never seen it in person.

We made it to Boston (finally) Friday evening and went straight to the Boston Convention Center where PaxEast was being held. Unfortunately, we were too late to see the show floor, but we did meet up with my friends from Memphis and hit up the table top gaming area! It was huge guys. Tables of Magic, Munchkin, DnD, Dominion, and a whole bunch of other table top games I’ve never heard of. The bf and I played a couple of games of Magic and hung out with my friends before heading to the hotel.

Saturday/Sunday-Woke up early and got our butts to PaxEast. You know to enjoy gaming and panels! We got there when the doors open and stayed until the doors closed. I played the new Magic game which will  be released summer 2012, 3DS (which is awwwweosme!), a whole bunch of games, went to some panels, wandered around, met some twitter friends, and just hung around at PaxEast. I didn’t want to leave on Sunday. I really had a good time just hanging  out and I can’t wait to go back next year!

Monday, MONDAY, MONDAY-Sunday night after Pax we drove straight to Boston and proceeded to pass out. On Monday we saw the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, and hung out on the hip South Street. We had lunch at an awesome cheesesteak shop (Steaks on South! The sandwiches were so good. If you’re in Philly, go there!) and then we went to The Magic Gardens!Magic Gardens is an indoor/outdoor maze of mosaics inlaid with various pieces of poetry. After the gardens we headed back home to WV.

“Ahhh…I’m 19 years old. My birthday was okay. Yesterday morning I wasn’t feeling to well, but I took some medicine and a nap and when I woke up I was feeling better minus the nauseousess from the medicine. Yesterday seemed like any other day. I remember birthdays from when I was a kid and everyone would make a huge deal out of it. “So, how do you feel being 11?” Those were the days.It doesn’t feel any different being 19.”

March 20,2004 (from Simplysophia livejournal) – yesterday was my birthday. I’m the big 2-1 now. wooo…I guess. I thought I would be wasted the entire weekend, but I wasn’t. I didn’t even feel like it.

March 20,2005 (simplysophia livejournal) Mood-good Music-modest mouse– I went to fmla and then out to dinner(taco cabana!) to celebrate my birthday with the most fabulous people! shoutouts to all of you that came! KTO! Jesi! SPecial K! Eddie! Stina Anne! Lena

 

March 20,2006 SophiawritesSince last Friday(St. Patty’s day!) my life has pretty much been a non-stop party. Friday went out to the bars and got plastered! Made out with some guy…And a girl at the bar. I said I would never makeout with anyone at a bar. I find it disgusting and just eww! But I did it. tsk..tsk. Apparently, I’m excused from it because it was St Patrick’s day and you’re allowed to do such things on St. Patrick’s Day. My birthday came and left. It actually lasted for a few days. I had a good time. Spent most of it inebriated. Sunday day was spent in Dallas with Daddy.

We ate, talked, and watched “futbol”. Spent Sunday evening ringing in my Birthday with Amanda and Ryder at IHOP. Monday-the actually birthday-Had a birthday lunch with jimothy which later evolved into afternoon birthday beers at Lou’s with heather, Katie S., and Sean. Had a birthday dinner and margaritas with alot of my friends! (thanks so much for coming out, -I love you sean, Jim, Bryce,Amanda, Ryder, James, George, Liz, des, Cathy, Kendall, Katie, Natalie and Blake!), and partied it up at the bars later. Sean Greene sang a song at karaoke night for me. Graceland by Paul Simon. How appropriate. 🙂 Went to the Mavs game on Tuesday with Amanda, Ryder, and Jim. I had soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much fun! I cant even tell you everything that went on that night. I can however give you a summary-a million big beers, pitchers at hooters, kicked out of hooters, losing jims phone in a cab, mini strip off. bahahhaa. It was a great night. Last night was the first night in about a week that I was actually stayed in. It was nice. I got to do some studying and chill and watch Six feet Under. I think I may take a small break from drinking. A week! Here’s to my week of sobriety! Think I’ll make it until next Wednesday?

March 2007 (this is the story of how I fell in love with Holland and vowed to live there. And I did! ) (lophy-livejournal)- Holland was amazingly beautiful and tons of fun. I danced until dawn in the coolest of clubs. I turned 24 years old! I biked across amsterdam for hours and hours seeing sights and talking/listening to stories. Biking in amsterdam was hard work! I had to dodge cars, tons of other bikers, people, and trams! I drank far too much Belgian beer! Lost my glasses in Rotterdam.

Met John SinclairTHE John Sinclair! Fell in love with a lovely little dutch treat known as Stroopwafels! Sprained my ankle and continuously walked/danced on it and it is now swollen as fuck. shopped at a huge open market. Met some great people. Shared the home of Arjan, one of the coolest kids I have ever met who is also coming to visit in 3 weeks! Conquered my dumb fear of windmills. Walked through the infamous Red Light District where the whores were surprisingly pretty…well, some of them. Got to see and explore 4 of Hollands biggest cities. Went to the top of the Euromast, a huge tower that overlooks the city of Rotterdam.Was told that I was the most beautiful girl in Holland…that made my day. Learned how to pronounce Scheveningen properly…kind of. Refused to eat a Kroket-A deep fried snack with mystery meat in the middle! I’ve heard its quite tasty. Jeremy had a couple while we were there, but I could not bring myself to eat one. Perhaps one day. Fell in love with the country and vowed to live there at some point in my life 🙂

March 2008– Yea, I turned 25 yesterday. I spent it in Amsterdam just as I did last year. Though this year I wasn’t with a boyfriend in a quaint little Italian restaurant.

Instead, my friends cooked a nice vegan curry dinner for me and baked tons of cupcakes! I seriously ate about 9 cupcakes between yesterday and today and I have a ton more! Woot! Cupcakes are one of my favorite things in the entire world. Anywho, great dinner/wine with friends and that was it. My flatmates decorated the flat with balloons and a typical Dutch streamer.

March 2009– My birthday has come and gone. It was such a lovely time. I had a blast. There was cake, beer, and most importantly friends! We started out drinking/hanging out at my place and out on the later went out on the town. We had a blast. Some a little more than others. But this is neither the place nor the time. I also scored some awesome gifts! An XBOX 360! with some games including Street Fighter 4!, an amazing homemade cake, some chocolates and candy from poland, lots of booze, a cosmetic case, a lovely hardcover for my new macbook and flowers. Thanks for all the wishes as well!

March 2010

I spent my 27th birthday in Toronto! It was so much fun and you can read about it here, because I don’t feel like copy/pasting all of that! But here’s a pic of my birthday cupcake from some little place in Toronto.

For my 28th birthday, I will be playing roller derby! My team is having a mini scrimmage (30 minutes instead of the normal hour)! And my team better win ^_^

Music Monday

🙂

I don’t…I can’t…I’m not saying anything about this. Y’all know how I feel about Radiohead. It should come as no surprise to you that I’ve watched this video countless times and listened to the album 923849028 times since it released. I love it.
