A Fantastic Time

Having been nervous about meeting my fellow Brownies, I walked into Happy Sashimi prepared for a potentially awkward night--I didn't know what to expect. Fortunately, it was the complete opposite! I sat down and introduced myself and chatted for a bit while everyone showed up. Once everyone had arrived, it was time for food, laughter and fun!

The time flew by as we chatted about our hobbies, classes, cultures and so much more. Typically being a shy person, I surprisingly yet pleasantly clicked with the people around me. I sat near the middle of the table, next to Irene and Stephanie and across from William and Austin; but that didn't stop me from talking to everyone at the table. I enjoyed conversations with Lydia, Lucero, Zijun, Andrew, Megan and Selene. We had many things in common, ranging from AP classes to favorite 80's music!

The food was awesome! I love Japanese food, so that was a big plus for me. I had California rolls but I ordered one too many, so I was happy to take some home. Many of us shared our plates--or tried as some of us were very full by that time--and we were left with a happy tummy. Even after we finished eating, we kept the conversation going until our parents came for us. I was sad to depart, but happy to know the people I'm going to be spending a lot of time with.

Overall, I can say that I was very, very pleased to have come. Many of us can agree can that another arrangement is a must! Especially since we couldn't meet Mariana, whom I look forward to meeting. I'm glad to be going to Brown with such great people.

Until next time!

  1. Lupe,

    I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall at this dinner to see how you all interacted with each other. It sounds like there was a lot of laughing and giggling going on.

    As you go through life trying to meet the other 6 billion people outside of Richmond, you'll find that most of them are just the same as you and you have more in common than you might imagine. All you have to do is put a smile on your face, walk up to them and say hey. This little dinner is just the start.
