Rainy Mondays tend to be horrible for most people. So i try my best to make every Monday the best possible day. It sort of sets a mood for the entire week.
I originally had plans to go to see Sweeney Todd with a few friends of mine but I got a call from CBW that today was the volunteer appreciation dinner. So i decided to ditch the play and get food first with Susmita and Rajib instead , the coolest people ever, and hang out. It's always nice to catch up with friends.
I got a chance to walk around lower east side in the rain with a friend and just talk, the rain is actually quite peaceful.
The dinner was nice, seeing all the old faces and new faces. Awards were given out and my good buddy Rafael got Volunteer of the year at CBW with a whopping 1400 hours. Including a pin from RIF and a gift card to Models. Eunice forgot to put in the card. Seeing myself a year ago, I wouldn't have believed I would be part of such an amazing literacy team. I remember when it was just a few of us reading to kids in the waiting room, trying our best to do a book fair or club with 4-5 people and chilling until the health center closed every time.
I gotta feeling this is going to be a good week :)
No need for any drama, games, douchebags... just pure fun and chilling with friends.
Expect to see me wasted each day
