My Weekend

Hi Blog world,

This past weekend was a lot of fun because I got to see my best friend. We met at her work, and then we took the regular bus back to her school.  The bus ride was two hours long, but it was a positive experience for me since I have only ridden the bus during my white cane training. Once we where back on campus we went back to the dorm to get settled.  Then we went to the cafeteria to get food.  Much to our surprise there was not a lot of people in the cafeteria  latter we found out that the alarm  that we had heard as we were going to the dorm was going off because of a small fire that happened in another area of the cafeteria.

After we got our food, we went back to the dorm and had dinner. Then we talked. It was nice to catch up with each other. Then the fun of trying to get my computer hooked up to the internet began. Jessica tried several times to get it to work, so we went to the library to see if anyone could help. They couldn’t help us so we went back to the dorm, and Jessica had to spend an hour  manually connecting my laptop to the internet.  Once she was able to get me online we goofed off on the internet by updating our Facebook pages. Then we watched  the movie “Frozen”  In my opinion, it’s a great movie. Then because it was later and because we were both tired we went to bed until the next morning. The next morning we had breakfast and watched TV.

Well that’s all for now,
