Over the weekend I celebrated my 22nd birthday. Of course Taylor Swifts song entitled “22″ was stuck in my head all day long. My birthday was on Friday. Me and two of my friends went to the last preseason Blues game. It was a lot of fun and also it was my friends first hockey game. I am so excited for the actual season to start. After that we spent the night away downtown and we finished the night at Ihop. Which kind of fit the lyric, “breakfast at midnight”. Finally went to bed around 3am. On Saturday I spent the day with my family. We had lunch at the loop and later that night had a family party. I had a lot of desserts. Then on Sunday I went to the Cards/Cubs game. It was the 50th anniversary of Stan “The Man” last regular season game. I thought that was pretty interesting. Also, interesting to see how we, Cardinal nation comes together.
This past Thursday before my birthday I bought a birthday present for myself. Before my night class started I got an email that said the Blues were adding more games to student nights. I saw what I have been wanting to see. So, now I finally get to see my Chicago Blackhawks on October 9th!!! I may not be a Cubs fan but my Chicago pride is within my Blackhawks and Bears.
