Jen's college life

As you may know, the whole college experience is new to me, and in my time here so far I've had a lot of "firsts" for things. Mostly it has been fun, although not without uncomfortable moments. One thing I have learned so far is that living in Res makes you a huge slacker, because you are pretty much at "home" all of the time, knowing a nice couch, soft bed, or group of other Res friends are close by at any given moment is not condusive to good study habits. *sigh*.... it's a hard knock life. Getting back to all of my first college experiences, there have been many new and interesting experiences, including first res friends, first dorm room, first "drunken 18 year old" encounter (please refer to previous posts) and tonite included a number of other firsts, like first university concert and unfortunately, first trip to the Owl, the campus bar.

Today started as any other day, trying to get work done all day but never getting very far. Little did I know the night would hold some new and interesting experiences.

I became informed that Hedley was playing tonite in the multi-purpose room by the Owl, and that I had to come. Sounded like good times to me so off I went. Although it was a pushing, shoving screamfest up at the front, the concert was good entertainment, after which the girls took me to the Owl, where there was much drinking and karaoke, none of which was I taking part in.
I was a little nervous going to the bar with the girls, as it's not my scene to say the least, but to my surprise the experience was not a terrible one. I met some people with my friends, said hey to the bands who played (they came there after) and when I ordered a coke at the bar the chick gave it to me for free. To my pleasant surprise, I didn't have to deal with my first "beating on drunk guy trying to get near me" which was something I was expecting upon entering the premises. So all in all, the night wasn't a bad time, although I likely still won't be spending much time at the owl. And by that I mean I won't be spending ANY time there. My first trip will also prove to be my last.

Now another college experience which is doing homework at all hours of the night... on a last note, I love Jesus.

jesus would probably go into the bar, that's where he can find some pretty broken people to spread the good news to. after all, he was at that wedding where they drank for days and days as a cultural custom.
