I wanted to throw it back to last summer where my friends and I had the best team bonding. According to the title, you probably assumed that this was on July 4th. Not entirely correct , it was actually July 3rd. My friend lives in South Riding which means that it is a 40 minute drive to get to her house, so my friend and I carpooled. It was a little party and a sleepover.We started the party by attempting to take aesthetic pictures at the local park using the golden hour to our advantage. I wish I could tell you that the pictures were decent, but unfortunately they were not, we did not have that natural glow that you would expect for a golden hour post. No, we looked like carrots in red, white, and blue.
But there is a first time for everything! Am I right?Anyways, we headed back and cooled off and ate delicious food consisting of two different types of pasta and garlic bread and a lot more food.We went back outside and took pictures with sparklers and the pictures were amazing. It was about 10 pm, so we used the flashlight from our phone to make sure everybodies face and hair was visible. After that we watched the best bollywood movie called Chennai Express. It is a really funny movie especially the facial expressions of the lead actor.At three in the morning, we ate dessert which was a cookie cake. And we also encountered a spider, I will spare you the details.We fell asleep at four and went back home the next day.
In five years, I want to remember that there was a day where I was free and had the time of my life. It was better than homecoming and the beach blast combined. Once college starts, we will not be able to meet up that often, but these memories will always be there. I decided to write about this because as a rising junior you start stressing about college or what you want to do with your life. Just remember to still have fun and cherish the time you spend with your friends and family.
