After taking first place on a snowy march Saturday at Volunteer State Community College, we boarded a bus with the second-place middle school to the University of Tennessee at Knoxville.

Day 1: April 5, 2013

*DISCLAIMER*
Please remember that this is all high-school and middle-school. We are not exactly mature.

Michael was wearing pajama pants all day, and under school rules, is defined as "men's lingerie." So, one of the guys at school asked him about it and he was like, "Well, technically I am not here (trip gives us excused absence), so I can wear whatever I want." Guy responds, "well, watch out for the ladies Michael." Left school after taking a interesting (I mean creepy) survey (took me 5 minutes and thesaurus.com to remember that word). Time of Departure: 10:20 am. Both high school and middle school boarded the small anchor bus (seats 29) except for me and my brother, we had to ride in our mother's van. One coach rode behind us in her car, too. We stopped for a bathroom break at the Fifth crossing of the Caney Fork River rest stop. As we were walking up the stairs, one of my friends threw a Frisbee straight at the team, it narrowly missed hitting anyone, instead it fell at one of the girls' feet. Needless to say, I laughed and asked her why didn't she catch it. I didn't go to the bathroom, but the majority of the team did (know idea why I find that funny, oh wait, the ones at school are unsanitary). When everyone came out, I held the door open for them, (and for a certain someone who was getting her hair braided as she walked). Then, I went and played Ultimate with three friends, occasionally scaring the hell out of one of my friends' girlfriend, whom would be my glaciers partner by tossing the Frisbee at her. After 10 minutes or so, we packed up again and headed east.

We pulled off from I-40 to go and have lunch at West Hills (I think that's the name) Mall, and I had a footlong sub from Subway, yuum. Not doing Taco Bell since they gave me indigestion in the 8th grade. It was really cute when two 7th grade boys came up and were like, "Where are our sisters? We need to ask them permission to spend money on food." Normally, both of them act like they don't care about their sisters, but when they are in need, they are really funny.

After lunch we went and toured campus, high schoolers didn't really care since we already know our way around campus. Alex (high schooler) had to be that guy while we toured. He went with arms outstretched towards 3 college students who were tossing a Frisbee around. They let him toss it twice before we had to continue onwards. That was pretty funny, we gave him a standing ovation for that (we were already standing, lol) Our high school sponsor, Mr. Beld, had to have his picture taken next to the Chemistry department sign since he is a chem teacher. Too bad his wife didn't come, supposedly Saturday was their anniversary, what better way to spend it, than with a 30 kids running around, doing tests?

So, then we went to the hotel and put all of the things we needed for the night in our respective rooms. I got hazed sorta when my roommate told me there were only two room keys, when in fact there were three and he didn't give it to me until four hours later. wtf man. We threw around a Frisbee outside until the girls came out and asked if any us wanted dinner. duh?

I had a Caesar salad from McDonalds after the others abandoned me.....(I shall get my revenge!) Watched ESPN till the others FINALLY came back. (seething with rage, but I hid it).

When everyone was back, me, Alex, Michael, and Aaron were attempting to pull of the impossible. While the girls and the aforementioned three guys were out eating, Michael snuck up on Busra (girl), tapped on her shoulder, and then whipped his shirt off just as she turned around. From her recollection, she said that she thought he was about to rape her, and she ran for her life (lol). So, Alex and Michael were going to apologize to her by serenading her with a song from Nicki Minaj. They couldn't quite do it, so instead, me and Aaron knocked and I went got in too Busra's and two other girls' rooms. After a while, they all left. Just for a little bit though, I think they went to get some coffee. While they were all gone, Mr. Beld called the girls' room. I, of course, answered. The following conversation:

Me: "Hello?"
Beld: "Wait, Nathan? Why are you in the girls' room?"
Me: "Um, err, long story."
Beld: "Okayyyy, what time do you think I should wake everyone up in order for us to leave on time at 6:30 tomorrow morning? I know that girls usually need a lot of time to get prepared."
Me: "Um, I don't know, try 5:45."
Beld: "You think that's enough time?"
Me: "Hopefully, yes."
Beld: "Okay, bye."

And then he quit the call just as the girls re-entered the room, darn, I told them what he had asked, and they laughed at my, err, evasion of why I was in their room.

End of Day One

Aww crap, forgot a piece of the story. Michael was wearing pajama pants all day, and under school rules, is defined as "men's lingerie." So, one of the guys at school asked him about it and he was like, "Well, technically I am not here (trip gives us excused absence), so I can wear whatever I want." Guy responds, "well, watch out for the ladies Michael."

What? I am not a creeper. They are my friends. It wasn't like I was lying with them in the same bed or anything. Sheesh Max.


I did not mean so in a bad way..more of a sneaky-glancy and good way since you wanted to apologize to them

Hey, that stuff happened outside of school, it gets more interesting (but a little more space in between events) at school.

I'm afraid I have to remore the "sorta" word for my first comment below...

I got a room key for my mother's room and went there to eat my McD's and watch ESPN. Meanwhile she and the middle schoolers ate at Applebee's.

High School FTW! Nah, while we were walking around UTK, Micheal was spinning around a pole, singing, "I feel so pretty, so pretty, and GAY!"

Me: "MICHAEL!, SHUT UP! (at which point I turned to Michelle) I hope he stops this when we go to sleep at the hotel room tonight."
