Great Friends = Awesome Week

The second week of school is over here at ONU, and man was it a crazy week. From laughing till tears streaming down my face and creating memories that will last with me till the end of time.

Let's start off with the first funny thing which is having my boyfriend coming over and asking if he can get his truck keys out of my car. He accidentally left them in there when we went grocery shopping. When I asked why he was in such a hurry to get his keys he told me he needed something for his drill. With him being a construction management major he always has tools. Now me still being curious I asked what was he doing that he needed to use his drill. His reply, "Peeling a potato!" What!? So me being the curious person I am, I asked if I could come and he said sure. So we get the piece for his drill and head up to his room. I took a video and here is the outcome:

We were all laughing so hard. We were amazed that it worked. Do not worry we cleaned all the peels up. They went flying all over the room!

The next thing that made the week pretty crazy was my parents visit over the weekend. My mom was not able to help me move in and wanted to see my room and bring up anything I may have forgotten. It was nice seeing my parents. We ended up going to the Hancock County Fair. It was smaller than the Allen County Fair but just as fun. There was a different atmosphere too. We went into the animal barns this time. One of my friends that we went with used to show there so we went along to see if he ran into anyone he knew. My parents had fun because we do not go to the fair that much in the city. Seeing the animals also brought back memories for my parents of their childhoods. Me being an animal lover and a girl I was excited when I saw a few baby animals .

Look how tiny and cute they are! They were born
 just two days before coming to the fair.

The last thing that made the second week crazy fun was Labor Day. We had no classes so my group of friends went to one of their family farm and got to hang out with their awesome family, go fishing and shoot some guns. My grandpa taught me how to shoot a gun when I was a freshman in high school. We shot a Winchester 62a 22 rifle and a Winchester 37 20 gauge shotgun. We shot at a target, some bottles filled with water and some random items we found in our rooms that we did not care about. It was so much fun. We were safe and had ear muffs and plugs, glasses, and made sure no one was in front of us when we were shooting. There was a thrill while shooting the guns and excitement when you hit the targets.

Me shooting the 20 gauge shotgun. The kick back was not bad and did not hurt my shoulder too much.

This is my boyfriend also shooting the shotgun. We both shot at water bottles filled with water.

I hope the rest of the year are weeks like this one. It would not have been such a great week without my awesome friends!


  1. Sounds like you had a blast! I'm sure cleaning up those potatoes wasn't easy at all. Where in the world did they come up with that idea?

    1. Well you know Dan (the one who was holding the drill). It was pretty late at night, they had some potatoes in the fridge and why not. It proved to bring much laughs and memory that will last a life time.
