Saturday, 14- Celebrated Ting’s birthday. We ate at Thai Pavilion and then went back to Sandy & Annie’s apartment and played a fun card- murder game =D

Sunday, 15- In the morning, I went with Annie, Carolyn, Sophia and my new roomie to the St. Patrick’s day parade on Constitutional Avenue. The parade was awesome, unfortunately though…it was cold and rainy…so we ended up leaving after an hour. Afterwards, Annie and I went to a first-time screening for documentary, wich is still in the making called “A Nomad’s Life.” The 2 directors (Lynn True and Nelson Walker) were there and a total of 100 attendees =) so relatively private. The movie was amazing, I can’t wait until it actually comes out, plus the directors were super nice! Afterwards, went over to my supervisors house, which was georgeous
