21 Years Old

July 13th, 2006 Comments off

Doesn’t feel much different to be 21.? Anyways, here’s a belated update on my awesome birthday weekend!

Thursday, July 6th:
Happy Birthday to Me and Greg!? I flew back home in the morning. Went out to lunch with my parents, packed, and aroudn 2:30 left with family?to pick up my Dad at work.? From his work, we went straight to the Culinary Institute in Napa Valley.? There I tried not just my first wine…be four different wines!? Before you beomce concered if I have have drinking problems, which I don’t, the story is I asked the waiter what he recommended for a “first-time-drinker,” and he suggested a sample.? I thought ok, it’s just a sample of a little bit of wine so I agreed.? Little did I know, the sampler meant to sample 3 different types of wines!? There was one white wine, and 2 red wines, and I forgot the names of them.? Anyways, I tried all of them (including my dad’s – that’s where the 4th one comes in Tongue out).? I probably drank about half of one cup, and gave the rest to my parents and grandma.? Wine is an aquired taste, so I’ll just leave it at that…? Going back, the dinner was great! I also got a Nikon S6 (It’s sooooo beautiful!), and Greg got a video iPod.

?After dinner, we headed to Reno for yet another vacation.? Got there around midnight.? I guess that means I have to start a new day…

Friday, July 7th:
After we checked in the hotel, we went down to play slots for the first time!? We were at the nickel slots, and I kept winning small amounts.? Finally, we went up to our rooms to sleep.

Went to eat at another hotel for brunch.? I learned how to play roulette.? I doubled my money and then some!? Ok, I only won $23.50 (with $10 buy in).? After brunch went to Costco to get my 1gig SD card for my camera, and then Office Depot for a camera bag.? Went back to hotel and walked to Circus Circus with my sister and played some games there.

Went to watch Superman.? Originally wanted to watch Pirates of the Carribean, but it was sold out.? Went out to dinner, went back to hotel, and went to teach Greg to play roulette with parents.? After a little bit?I went back to Circus Circus, but?with Greg this time.

Saturday, July 8th:
Woke up and packed, went to breakfast and went back to Circus Circus with family, haha.? I think we lost more money there than gambling.? Anyways it was a good first experience.? Now that I have tried alcohol and gambling, I will probably never do them again.? We left back home aroun 12:30.

Sunday, July 9th:
Church for the worship service, and had to leave before sunday school to take care of some stuff.? Flew back to Pomona at 6. ?Frown? Sorry, no pics!? Even though I have a camera, I don’t have any pics hahaha.? I’ll try and get some from my sis and post them.? I signed up for a flickr account and planning to use their service to feed images to my site.

So that was my 21st birthday weekend.? Thanks to all those who called, left messages, imed me!

On another note: as you can see I changed my theme.? I think this one will be my permanent theme now.? I don’t have time to keep updating and changing the code to fit my needs with school and work and church activities.? The only thing I will change is the top.? It looks tooooo plain.? Alright much to do this weekend!? I’ll try to update as much as possible!
