If you put off buying books, and just slowly buy one every other day or so as you get up the courage to spend dat ca$h, it's cheaper that way... right? :?

Bojangles, so good. Can't resist.


And I live right freaking next to the one by Lowes. It's so cheap, too. ~$6.25 for a breast and wing, fries, biscuit, and drink?!

Cook-Out was the local place that I had to check out right away. Delicious. Probably not good that they have one so close to Pinnacle Ridge...


Guess I'm not laying off yet :lol:


Cook-Out is so cheap, too. Their prices don't even make sense.


*checks*

:shock:

I suppose I'll call my bank in a bit just to confirm, but the point is, it's happening so give it until noon peeps.


Mine didn't post Friday, but I think a hold on that amount of money is normal. I'll call the bank on Monday if it doesn't post by then though.

Some upperclassmen mentioned that their refund didn't clear until Wed of LEAD week last year. FYI

What's everyone doing tonight? I'm trying to get a pregame going at my place at Pinnacle Ridge. I'd love to meet some more fellow classmates! Is anyone interested?

I think that most of us are going to Shooters. There's a group of us going at 10. You can lyft with us from Pinnacle.

~30 of us are going to a Durham Bulls game this afternoon. It might be too late to get tickets with the rest of the group, but you can find details on the Facebook page, give them a call, and try. Alternatively/additionally, you could post hoping someone else might not go and offering to take their place in that case.

Yeah, somehow I completely missed the Facebook post. Anyone know what section the group tickets are in? I could at least get some in the same section.

I'd just send a message to the person organizing it (or ask in the Comment thread on Facebook).

I had sent her a message. She actually had an extra ticket left, so that worked out pretty well. See y'all there.

FWIW, the email that I got from my LEAD Fellow group leader person seemed to indicate that jackets weren't expected of the men. I am not planning to wear one on Tuesday.

I won't have one, either. Business casual = button-down + dress pants to me.

Today I learned that women lawyers didn't exist until after 1950.

This might be a silly question, but are people bringing laptops with them tomorrow? Or a notebook or something? Not sure how serious the stuff is...
