The Inter-House Dinner: An Attempt

ASE organized the opportunity to have dinner with another house, which we happily agreed to do. We were paired up with a flat that only had three people agree to the dinner, which was fine. We organized that I would make chili, Rachel was going to make guacamole, and they were going to make pasta and a dessert.

Originally, the dinner was scheduled for Wednesday, but on Wednesday night, a couple people in our house mentioned they wanted to move the dinner because we all had papers due on Thursday. We asked the other group if that would be ok, and they were fine with it, so we moved it to last night. As last night arrived, two of the three people from the other house weren’t able to come, so three of the people from my house decided that it wasn’t really worth it if it was mostly our house, so they did their own dinner. The rest of us decided to go through with it because we had bought everything for the dinner and the third person from the other house was still coming.

And I had a really good time. It was really nice to have some down time to talk with people in my house and Leslie from the other house. People often are off on their own, especially as we’re approaching finals and we just had the second round of papers due, so I was grateful to have the time to just hang out with other people. Things may not have gone exactly as planned in a bunch of ways, but I still had a good time.
