My last post was a little premature. As it turns out, the Senior Retreat guy never showed up for Sorin College Mass. Only at Notre Dame would you be able to say you got stood up for Mass, right? Naturally I was disappointed, so my friends took me to LaFortune for Starbucks, a handy remedy for most of life's troubles. Fortunately I have a back-up date in the works, so my dance plans should still go off without a hitch.
Yesterday was Notre Dame's first snow day since 2000 and we students celebrated accordingly... by sleeping in late and playing outside instead of getting ahead on homework. It was a quiet, lazy and pleasant day on campus.
My plans for this weekend include watching King Lear tonight followed by a visit to Dueling Pianos at Legends (which I can then cross off my Notre Dame bucket list). Saturday will include an afternoon movie and the dance in the evening. We're organizing it to be an old-fashioned ball, with ballroom dance instructors coming for the first hour to teach us steps and each lady receiving her own dance card. If things get really wild, we might even carry fans. :) I anticipate a lovely evening, no matter who my date ends up being, and I'll be sure to report back on the event.
Have a lovely weekend and thank you for reading!
