i went home this weekend, it is always nice going home it feels good because you are not at school. while i am at school i mostly always think about school and when i am at home i don't think of school i just relax. i ran out of food in my dorm last week so i always had to eat the food in the dining hall which we all know is not good. i got to have one of my favorite dinners this weekend, beef strogenof it is so good and it is one of those meals that tastes good even as leftovers. i only live about 20 minutes from the school so i do not really miss my parents, but i do miss my dog and cat because they are so interesting to just watch and my cat follows me everywhere.

since i di not really have much homework i could just hang out with my friends and relax. i have a ping pong table at my house so i got to play that again. i do not have a tv in my dorm so i watched a lot of tv, we have a DVR so all of the shows that i like were recorded so i could watch them. on friday i went to my aunts house for my moms and her sisters birthday, they were born on the same day but in different years. the cake was really good it was homemade, chocolate cake with carmel icing. it was a very good weekend

The Farm

i went down to the farm the other day it was really cool. i do not live on a farm myself but i like seeing all of the farm animals. the walk down to the farm is not too long and not too short. no one is allowed to touch the animals on the farm but sometimes they come up too you and just happen to touch your hand. there are cows, pigs and horses and sheep and also llamas. the sheep are the most friendly and the funnest to watch. the beef cows are scared of people but then again i guess they have a good reason to be scared.
there are also a few barn cats down there too only one of them will let you pet it. another one wants you to pet it but is not sure that it can trust you. so it make a lot of noise by meowing a lot. the barn with the bull in it has a vine hanging down it on the side. the vine was flowering when i went down there my roommate took a picture of the bull next to the flowers it is a beautiful picture. i do not have the picture but if you ever get the chance to go down to the farm i would recommend that you go because it is quite fun and interesting.

Dorney Park

Last Saturday i went to Dorney Park. it is an amusement park about an hour away from delval and it is about 40 minutes away from my home in Perkasie. i try to go there at least once every year because i love going on amusement park rides; this summer i have not gone so luckily the college had a trip to dorney. the best ride in the park is Talon it is a roller coaster. there is a lot of g-force on that roller coaster. so much so that it is even hard to hold your arms up in the air. because the g-force is so powerful you would not even need a seat belt to stay in the seat. i love almost all of the rides there but i like the roller coasters the best because on some of them you can pop up out of your seat a little and it feels like you are flying. i also love the feeling i get when going down steep hills on the rides it is that feeling when your adrenaline kicks in to remind you that what your are doing could be potentially dangerous in any other situation. All the food and stuff is really expensive but to get into both parks it is about $35.00 i think. so if you like amusement park rides i would recommend you to go. the picture is actually of steel force which is the second best roller coaster at dorney park. it does not go upside down but you can pop out of your seat. the other coaster in the picture is of thunderhawk which i would not recommend going on because it is so old and very bumpy. it is a wooden roller coaster and because it is bumpy the ride is not enjoyable.
