Paintball on a Saturday Morning

Oh man.  It’s been one long day.  I attended a paintball event (yes, you read correctly) for one of the clubs I am in.  We arrived around 9 and stayed out in our sweats, paintball gear until 1.  It certainly is an adventure and I’d always wanted to try it, so been there, done that.


Afterwards, we stopped by Ike’s Lair for sandwiches (I selected the Matt Cain with roast beef, turkey, salami, Godfather sauce, & Provolone) and back to our apartment for lunch, a movie, and homework.


I actually went with a fun sandwich that tasted good, instead of worrying about the health benefits of this and that. I’m trying my best to expand my horizons. I’m not always the best, especially in terms of putting myself out there, but it takes time, right?

Like my experiment with brownies? I attempted to make this one, which had avocado, pumpkin, and applesauce.  Sounds intriguing, right? I bet some people are rolling their eyes, but hey, I would have eaten it.


Well, first off, my avocados were moldy, so I threw in 1/2 cup of butter.  First issue. Second issue was that I had too many liquidy ingredients.  Third issue is how it looks.  Why it looks charred, I have no idea.  But, I threw it in the fridge and it doesn’t taste too bad with a little peanut butter on top. 🙂 Basically, I love to experiment, but if it is in terms of baking, I need to stick to the recipe.


Tonight I think I am going to attend one of our school’s theatrical performances.  It’s called “Six Degrees of Separation” (description below). There are so many activities that are hosted by our school, but I rarely attend them.  This one seems pretty good and since we already stayed in and watched a movie last night (Django…quite the Tarantino movie), this might be fun.

This imaginative tour de force is a witty, biting, yet ultimately sincere commentary on what drives people – the desire for money, fame, social standing, comfort, and meaningful human connection. The play is based on a young African-American man who gained access to the homes of upper-class New Yorkers by pretending to be the son of actor Sidney Poitier.

I’ll let you know how it goes.  Tomorrow I’ve got a bike ride planned, maybe aquajogging, homework, group projects, and hopefully a big run to the store for groceries.  I’ve been in a food slump and think that actually having some decent fruits and veggies would be worthwhile.

What do you like to do on the weekends?

  1. HAHA I saw your paintballing picture in my reader and immediately thought “who do I follow that goes paintballing?!?!” I have always wanted to go, but the whole experience seems a little intense for me! Dude, you sandwich looks bomb, I think not always going with the “healthy” option makes life wayyyy better! (and tastier :))
