(Could be altered to be best friend dates in a jar)
I used big popsicle sticks and spray painted them different colors. Each color represents a different type of date (and each color is explained on the tag) and the white sticks were used as fillers.
Red sticks have more expensive dates on them that require planning on our part.
- Bed and Breakfast
- Dinner at a fancy restaurant
- Hotel stay for the night
- Auburn home game and away game
- Concert and dinner (his choice)
- Concert and dinner (my choice)
- Weekend away
- Coupes Massage
Dark pink sticks have “at home” dates:
- Chopped Challenge (like the television show on FoodNetwork)
- Fondue and Almost Famous
- Takeout and board games
- 1,000 piece puzzle and pizza
- Football game and nachos
- Popcorn and a chick-flick
- Crosswords and breakfast for dinner
- Make a dessert together
- Friday Night Lights marathon
- Homemade pizzas and an Italian movie
Light Pink dates have things we can do away from home but are less expensive than the red and don’t require as much planning.
- Dinner and a movie (my choice and his choice)
- Laser tag and go carts
- Mexican night at Cocina Superior
- Drive-In date
- Dessert only date
- Window shopping for the house
- The Melting Pot
- Coffee Date
let’s do this shit
If I ever start dating again I am going to do this.
Lets get it Ray!
Netflix Movie Review!
Tonight I stumbled upon a film called “Videogame High School.” The Netflix user rating gave this movie four stars, so my curiosity was peaked.
This movie almost has everything I would ask for in a film, there’s action, romance, and excellent special effects. The only thing that I found lacking was the script. There are moments where I was blown away by the writing, when only two seconds later I would find myself drowning in a pool of awkward.
So the story starts off with a teenager and his group of friends playing video games. And through a series of completely relatable coincidences, he ends up owning the highest ranked FPS student in the VGHS. Days later he is offered a place to attend the Video Game High School, thus begins the journey for the next two hours of your life (if you can make it past all of the awkwardness).
What I loved the most about this movie is that it had a Top Gun feel to it throughout it’s two hours and fourty minute span, and the nostalgia. Oh my word the nostalgia.
Video games were a huge part of my childhood, so huge that I actually thought to myself, “What if there were a school where all that I learned was how to play videogames?” And here is my answer.
So if you played videogames in your youth and want a good nostalgia trip, I would highly recommend this movie to you. I understand why this film recieved 4/5 stars. Although situations got uncomfortable at times, the other elements just work beautifully.
Just for the record, this is my first written movie review.. ever. Thanks for reading!
