Long Weekend

Long Weekend couldn’t have come through soon enough! Between schoolwork, soccer, and college applications, I haven’t had a lot of free time. I guess that’s what made my Long Weekend so sweet: finally having free time.
For Long Weekend, I went to my friend Caleb’s house, and my friend P.K. was there too. The first night (Friday night), we were too tired to do anything, so we made ourselves comfortable in the basement and watched movies all night. We ended up sleeping half of our Saturday away, but none of us were mad because we needed it. When we eventually woke up, at around lunchtime, we were still at a loss for what to do. We ended up watching even more TV and just when we thought our Saturday was squandered, one of our mutual friends, Dan, invited us to a party he was throwing that night. The party was really fun and it was cool to be with people from other schools in a non-competitive environment.

On Sunday, Caleb, PK, and I went to the movies. We saw Gemini Man featuring Will Smith. I’m not going to lie, it was a bit of a letdown. The movie started out strong and then it just got cheesy. I’d rate it a solid 6/10. Sorry Will… On Monday, before returning to school we had our own little Last Supper at Wingstop and we got haircuts. When we were done filling our stomachs and getting all pretty, we made our way back to Groton for another round in the gauntlet that is Sixth Form fall.
