Tanning Salon, Colonial Theater, & Homecoming Dance

I was able to sleep in a little, but I wanted to get up and have breakfast with Drew. I really haven’t been able to spend that much time with him since I have been so busy after work with the theater. I missed him.

After breakfast, I got a shower and got ready to head to the tanning salon. I was to work there from 11-4. Leanne’s mom already paid me and I planned on getting some reading done, while I was there.

When I arrived to the salon, I hung out with Leanne for bit, and then got to reading. I helped out around the shop, as well as painted my toes the same color as my nails, and then cleaned out Margie’s pedicure basin, and Tisha’s color bowls. I really didn’t feel like reading, now that my paper was done and all but turned in. I am going to look it over tomorrow. I just had no motivation to do anything after that paper.

While I was there, I stopped by the Better than Honey Boutique and shopped in their last chance chest. I found this really cute top. It is olive green and it has two white skulls on the boobs and rhinestones down the middle. it is so cute on and fits so nicely. Better Than Honey  - Better Than Honey

After I bought the top, I went back to the salon. I didn’t want to be gone too long, even though I was only two doors down from the tanning salon. The women will talk if I am gone too long.

When I arrived back, I got packed up it was almost time for me to leave. We only had one tanner. gone are the days where this place was full of tanners, and there would be line, those days are gone. Tanning tax killed the industry and the fact they are linking it to skin cancer. I was such an avid tanner. I could have gone in the bed today, but I decided against it.

I left the shop at 4pm. Kathie and Margie were still there doing nails, so I didn’t bother to lock up. I left the key in Leanne’s drawer and I was out the door.

On my way to Moon, I met Drew at his grandma’s. I was glad to see him and grandma. I gave her a kiss and I visited awhile with her. Around 10mins to 5pm, we left to get dinner at Mike and Tony’s. We haven’t been there yet together and we haven’t gone out on a date in awhile. It was nice to just sit together and spend time with one, another.

After dinner, I kissed Drew goodbye and I  drove to RMU and as usual parked at Nicholson and walked down the front walk way. I was on the phone with my mom and I turned behind me. I saw a cop car driving up the walkway. The RMU police car parked in the same spot as the other night and he got out. I waited for him. I said, “did you see my car?” he laughed and said, “no, a girl needs let into the admission’s office.” I said, “oh okay.” He said, “After I let you in, I can ride you up to Massey if you want?” I said, “Sure.” He asked, “If I mind going to get the money, alone?” I said, “Not at all.” I walked down to the office and got the money and then locked the door behind me. I walked back up and saw him waiting for me by the admissions office. I smiled and we walked back out to his police car. I got in the front seat. He drove me to Massey and asked what time I would be there until? I said, “until like 7:30pm, or 8pm, then to the Fitness Center for the Homecoming dance.” He said, “call me after I will drive you back to Nicholson and take you to the Fitness Center.” I said, “are you sure?” He said, “yea, just give the station a call.” I said, “Thank you.” I got out of the car and walked into Massey.

Once inside, I greeted everyone and said, “Hello!” they shouted back, “Hey!” I set up my station at the table and sold some tickets and swiped some people in. Then stayed for 5 mins after the show started. I packed up and called the RMU police office. They said that someone will be right over to take you up to Nicholson. I said, Thank you and hung up. I waited outside and there was my officer friend, driving up to Massey. I approached the car and got in the front seat. he asked, “how I did?” I said, “We did pretty good actually.” and I told him what we made in ticket sales and he smiled. After I dropped off the money in the office and locked it up, he drove me to my car to unload my tote bag. I only wanted to bring just the essentials, keys and phone.

When we arrived to the Fitness Center, he said, that he would be around if I needed a ride back to Nicholson to get my car. I said, “thank you, and be safe.” I got out of the car and walked towards the entrance of the fitness center. I introduced myself to Nancy, the admin in the development office. She remembered me from visiting John the past couple times I have been on campus. I also introduced myself to Armand the director of athletics. I used to get e-mails all the time from him as an undergrad promoting sporting events. I also met Sarah, the director of Campus Recreation. I also reconnected with a few faces that I saw as an undergrad, Nicole from Center for student success. She used to scare me as an undergrad, but not so much anymore.

After getting a tour of the facility, it smelled like a brand new building. The building is newer, and the was the first time they were holding a homecoming dance at this location. We were given assignments and told what to do. I was partnered with Sarah and Annie. Sarah and I were to monitor the dance floor and if we see something, and or smell something (weed), then we let RMU police know and they will handle it.

When the dance got on under way, I watched the couples enter the gym with their significant others, and judged their dresses. Sarah and I agreed that some of the dresses were a bit outrageous. I would never think of wearing some of the dresses I saw that night. Also, at one point my first supervisor from the Phonathon department at RMU approached me and was surprised to see me. He said, “Wow! What are you doing here?” I said, “I am an intern for John Locke. I am going full circle being back here.” He said, “Yes you are definitely going full circle.” He gave me a hug and we got caught up on all that has happened in our lives.

At around 11:30pm, I hitched a ride with Sarah up to Nicholson’s parking lot to where my car was parked. I drove home and when I arrived home, Drew had the house all clean and the living room was vacuumed. I am so grateful for him. He does so much to help out around the house. My ankle was so sore from standing in flats all evening. I needed to get a shower and get some ice on my ankle then head to bed.
