After we played video games and watching TV, we literally ran over to Gwam to play a few games of fooseball and fill up our bellies. After fooseball, we had a good run back to Wilgus as well.
Guys on the floor got together to play some Call of Duty. It was only 2 players at a time, but this way Skyler couldn’t lose. Later, I played a little Battlefield One with Sam for a good hour and a half. I was an absolute terrible player, but it awesome just hanging out.
Gobble up a Good Time was hosted by Pickard in Dobson for the weekly FNC. They had free ice cream, warm apple cider, and hot cocoa, but best of all, they had strawberry, blueberry, cherry, and apple pies. Also, there were board games and hand turkey drawings.
Simon and I headed over together to get some of the goods. Once we arrived, we started up a game of Uno with several other random people.
Then we met up with two other Wilgus residents, including Reid who was playing Apples to Apples.
Wilgus went head-to-head in a 2 hour competition with McGregor firing Nerf darts at one another. After each round, everyone would do push-ups, sit-ups, or jumping-jacks, however, the winner or winning team could opt out of doing so if the wanted. Different game modes we played included Team deathmatches with 4v4, 5v5, 3v3v3, 4v4v4, and 3v3v3, 8 Free-For-All, and Capture-the-Flag. We changed up teams to be RAs vs Residents, Wilgus vs McGregor, and other random variarions like someone being a team captain. The battle was intense and a lot of fun. It was also nice having background music to amp everyone up.
Cupcake Wars was presented in Dobson by Wilgus. More than 500 cupcakes had been baked for the event and there was plenty of frosting and candy decorations to go around. Attendees were able to munch on there custom cupcakes while sipping on milk or lemonade.After constructing their master creations, participants could enter them into five different to be judged. The categories were superheroes, animals, emojis, ugliest, and nature. Making the cupcakes was a great way for students to relax and channel any stress into a creative outlet by getting crafty. By the end of the night, it was clear that some people sure are artsy with their decorative cupcakes.
Brij has an old battery in his Explorer, and of course, with time, corrosion can build up on the battery terminals. This was the cases for Brij. And with the cold weather, the battery had run down to a low charge and his ride wouldn’t start. So, together, we took the wires or the battery terminals and cleaned off all the corrosion from the terminals and the inside of the clamps as well. Then, we pulled my Caprice up to his car and got the Explorer charged up. Afterwards, a trip to Wal-Mart got the Explorer’s charge back to a healthy level.
We played some Phase 10 in the lobby. I was still in the learning Phase, but after getting the hang of it, it was a lot of fun. We also ordered Chinese food, and I ate 3 egg roles. So yummy! Chase there might have been the best player.
