Endless Bliss | Happy Lifestyle Blog: scaredy-cat.


Just realized that this is going to be my 100th post! Yay! Finally in the triple digits.

So let me just say that I knew it was going to be an awesome weekend because Jon was coming to visit, but I had no idea how awesome it was going to be! Jon and I are usually pretty lazy when we're together because we both work full time, so we just stay low-key and watch a lot of Netflix and Redbox and eat from the dollar menu, but not this weekend. This was the first time Jon has come to stay in my new apartment, so we had to do something fun!

Jon met me at my job when I got off and then after getting ready, we drove over to my office-mate and his partner's new house to meet him and a couple of my other co-workers to go to the corn maze. And let me just say that this experience made me feel like such a grown-up because I see all of these people on TV hanging out with their co-workers after work, and I haven't done that since I entered the "grown-up" world. Does that mean I'm old now? No. I'll never be old.

Anyway, we toured the house, drank a few adult beverages and then drove thirty minutes to the middle of nowhere to go to the corn maze. After eating some yummy fair food, we waited in line to go on the trolley thing to take us farther into the middle of nowhere. While waiting, we played Heads Up! It's literally the funnest app ever invented, so shoutout to Ellen D.

Now the trolley thing took us to the three haunted parts - the corn maze, the trail of terror, and zombie paintball. The corn maze was fun. I screamed a lot and yelled at Jon for falling behind and not protecting me. He never gets scared. No fun. The last part of the maze of course included a guy carrying a chainsaw. My office-mate took off running to avoid him. Then, like an idiot, I started running from the sound of the chainsaw and the guy chased me around in circles. While I'm screaming, he somehow manages to face plant into the ground while he's chasing me. That's what he gets. Mwahaha. I did feel bad for him though. We heard chainsaw sounds later, so I'm sure he's fine.

The corn maze was like a warm-up for the real scary part, the Trail of Terror. We waited in line for about an hour, but it was so worth it.

Let me just tell y'all, the last time I went on a haunted trail, I was in elementary school, and I had to walk over a bridge. They told me there were knives going across the bridge, and I jumped in the arms of the person nearest to me and cried into their shoulder during the whole maze. But this was my chance to redeem myself. I didn't cry this time. I screamed a whole lot though (so much that my throat was sore the next day). I can't even describe what happened in there, other than at one point, three people were in front of me, and two were behind me (including Jon), and this super tall guy with a mask on came out of nowhere and scared the piss out of me (not literally) and I just stood there screaming, not knowing whether I should run to catch up to everyone in front of me, or run back to Jon, knowing that the guy might strike again. Apparently, my scream humored the guy so much, he decided to give me a high five. Mind you, this was the midway point, and I thought that after that guy we would be done, but I was wrong of course. The whole trail was super legit though.

Okay, it was a challenge to keep my eyes open with that ridiculous flash. 

After that, we did zombie paintball where we got to shoot paintballs at some zombies in the distance. It would've been a lot cooler if we actually saw the zombies. I'm sure by the time we got there though, they were tired of getting hit so much.

Saturday was spent having Jon helping me hang stuff on my wall and fix things that I couldn't a) reach or b) figure out. Then we did a little shopping for my apartment (in the torrential downpour) and I found a bigger bookshelf! All my books are on a bookshelf now, which makes me supa happy. Wahoo!

That night, we went to the Red River Revel, which is an arts festival that comes to Shreveport/Bossier every fall. It had rained all day, so we debated whether or not we would actually go. I decided that I wanted to, so we went, looked at some art, ate some funnel cake, and then stood near the front of the stage for Love and Theft! I'm so happy we decided to go. I mean, going to the Revel in the rain is the way to go apparently. There was no traffic. There were barely any people there. We didn't have to pay to get in. No one was at the front. Plus, we were only second in line to the stage for the concert. It was so so wonderful, even though I only knew two songs by them.

Sunday, we watched a few episodes of Lie To Me. I'm obsessed with that show. We discovered it together, so we decided we'd only watch it when we're together. Kinda sweet, right? Aw. Then Sunday night after Jon left, I went to my parents' house to watch Revenge with my sister.

Finally, a weekend worth blogging about. What did y'all do this weekend???
