I woke up and did my last minute studies for my driver’s permit exam. I spent maybe a total of 3-4 hours of studying for this test. It’s quite pathetic that at the age of 23 I have yet to do this test. In all honesty, I already acquired my permit but I lost it 3 years ago in Cuba. I was just simply too lazy to replace it. All this time I thought it expired so I assumed I had to take it again. My boyfriend and I drove to the place where you do the test and waited maybe 30 - 45 minutes before they called my number. Just my luck, it turns out my licence is still valid and just need to be replaced. So, I didn’t have to take the test. The lady redirects us to Services Ontario, about 7 minute drive from where we were. There we stood for almost an hour before I was called up.
As soon as I finished dealing with my permit, we decided to eat sushi. Coincidentally, a bunch of my old co workers were also there celebrating someone’s baby shower. It was such a shock running into them, especially a lot of them all at once. Although the time wasted standing and waiting for my number to be called up, I’m glad I got my permit replaced and ran into nostalgic faces.
The real fun began when my boyfriend dropped me off at my mother’s. There I chilled with my brother and his girlfriend for a few hours before we had to go upstairs to our friend’s apartment and drink. You see, that night was also the night my brother threw his birthday party with friends. We had a DJ, a tub full of alcohol, cake and chinese food. Though it was unfortunate my boyfriend couldn’t come due to the fact he had to fix something at work. I was suppose to see him the next day when he picked me up but I just didn’t feel “okay” with sleeping without him. Luckily around 1:30 in the morning my boyfriend began to feel tired from his own party, he couldn’t work up the nerve to leave his own party so, he used me. I asked him if it was okay for him to drive all the way to Etobicoke (where I live with my boyfriend) and fortunately, he said yes. He got to leave his party early and I got to sleep with my boyfriend.
My boyfriend and I went to bed pretty late, maybe around 2 am or so. Seven hours from then we would have to wake up and cook breakfast. A few friends of ours decided to plan a brunch date over at our place. My boyfriend and I love guests over, no matter what time, okay maybe not super early in the morning. Although, this was something different, we don’t normally have guests over for brunch, in fact, I doubt we even go to anyone’s house for brunch. Anyways we woke up around 9 am, we started cooking, cleaning the place a bit and took our early morning shower.
We finished brunch around 10:30 am and watched a foreign gay film together. We were really into the movie (I was glad because I picked it). We had to leave around 12:30 because our real movie started at 1 am. We watched The Avengers and holy shit, it is worth watching over and over until you get sick of it. The humour, the action, the story line, how they were all connected was simply flawless. You must see it.
After the movies we had to separate ways from our friends and pick up my sister. Then we headed to the mall to exchange her dress, unfortunately that didn’t go well. After the mall we headed back to Scarborough (where my mom and brother lives). We headed to Mandarin (Chinese buffet restaurant) for my brothers family get together. It was good spending time with the family and eating fatty, somewhat disgusting food.
As soon as we finished eating we all headed to my moms place. There we continued the laughing and making a complete mess at my moms. I’m sure she is glad we are gone now, haha.
My boyfriend and I drove to some remote area and I he gave me driving lessons. I was on two main roads today. Awesome! Can’t wait to be driving on my own.
