SAT JUNE, 18
NEW ORLEANS, LA
10:00am: Woke Up in India House Hostel
11am: Trolley to Starbucks
Once I got to Starbucks all the outlets were not working because they said they had a power shortage. I walked around for a while looking for a place that had the necessities: coffee, outlet, wifi.
12:30pm - 4:30pm: Did Work in EnVie Espresso Bar & Cafe
5pm: Payless Shoes
I bought new shoes given that my running shoes had a hole at the bottom and the last pair of shoes I bought was 2 years ago. Payless had a buy 1 get 50% off. Score!
6pm: Ate and Worked at Subway
7:30pm: Lounged in Bed
I was not happy with myself at this point in the day. I felt lazy. I didn't get as much accomplished as I would have liked. I tried to do work in bed, but my mind kept drifting to watching Jimmy Fallon & Jimmy Kimmel interviews on YouTube.
9pm: Worked in Lounge
My focus was better but not much. I'm sometimes too curious, for example, whenever someone walked by I'd look up.
10:30pm - 4am: Hung Out on Patio & Porch
I made a Peanut Butter and Nutella sandwich and one of the Scottish girls invited me to come join them.
They taught me how to play a drinking game called, "most likely" where a person asks, for example, "Who is most likely to take a selfie at their grandmother's funeral?" and then everyone immediately points to who they think it is. The person who gets the most votes drinks. And then you go around the circle and a new person asks a question.
I got most likely to be a FoxNews Anchor. And this was before we started talking politics.
They were hilarious. At first they told me that they were an Evangelical Christian Band, but as the game continued I quickly learned they were far from good christian girls and boys.
By the end of the night we basically touched every touchy political subject: Trump, guns, abortion, imperialism, Iraq War, Bush, Obama, Obamacare, the American Dream (still alive and well!), Education, the cause of the American Civil War (it was slavery!).
In the end though I was happy we could all agree that America is an amazing place and that the world is a better place because America exists.
I asked them what they thought my ancestry was. They basically guessed every European country and ethnicity before I slammed the table and shouted, "I'm Irish god damn it!" They said that the Irish are often belligerently drunk and you can hear them before you can see them.
That explains my family ;)
