Hi everyone! I hope that everyone is having a fun and safe break so far! I’ve been enjoying mine a lot so far and it felt like I started Thanksgiving break early this year!
Last week, on Thursday, a group of friends and I went to the midnight premier of Catching Fire! There is a great movie theater in Boulder, and we got tickets to that one. There are other movie theaters in the areas surrounding Boulder, so I knew a couple people that went to see it at Flatirons, and down in Westminster. It was an awesome movie, in my opinion! I watched the first one last week as well, just to refresh my memory of what was going on, and I will say that I think the second one is better than the first! I read all of the books a few years ago, so I didn’t remember everything. Seeing the movie made me want to read the books again. Maybe I will after finals!
Thursday was also one of my best friend’s birthday, so we decided to celebrate by going to dinner Friday night. We went to Pasta Jays, which is on Pearl Street for dinner. It is a really good Italian restaurant, and it was packed the entire time we were there! We then went on to dessert and tea at the Dushanbe Tea house: one of my Boulder faves! The house chai is amazing, and you get unlimited refills. After that we went back to my apartment to hang out and digest before trekking up to the star on the side of the mountain. Unfortunately, it was a little bit of a failed attempt to go stand by the star because there was a little too much snow on the ground to be able to head up to the star. I’m pretty clumsy and I fell a couple of times. We are hoping to try it again without the snow!
It was a really fun way to end the school week before break and I am so thankful that Boulder always has so much to offer!
Here we are at Pasta Jays!
