Hi students and future students!
Today I will tell you about how I experienced my first thanksgiving and Black Friday.
My first Thanksgiving dinner
As a European who never celebrated thanksgiving before I had no idea what to expect and instead of having a large thanksgiving dinner I ate a delicious thanksgiving dinner at the Campus Corner Apartments (CCA). The CCA is the student housing facilities for Green River College students. Many international students never celebrated thanksgiving before, therefore CCA threw the free dinner.
After dinner me and my friends went to the Westfield Southcenter mall. We came there and expected a huge amount of people and extreme discounts. The reality was less shocking however……It was busy but not extreme like we saw in the online videos. There were great prices however, I even managed to buy an Iphone 6S Plus for 250$ !! Unfortunately, the mall closed at 12….
So we decided to go to the Outlet center in
Auburn. Here it was not that busy either, the discounts were great on clothing though, the best thing however were the cinnamon rolls. After eating some delicious cinnamon rolls (way better than doughnuts!!!!), we decided to go to Walmart to see if it was busy there.
Words fall short if I describe how huge the lines were and how busy it was at Walmart.There were so many people while the discounts weren’t even that great in comparison with other stores….
I checked all the discounts on forehand and that saves so much time at black Friday itself because you can just go to the store you know will have the best discount so that is a huge tip for next year. I even found these cool mini fridges!
What about the scorpion ?!?
I know what you must be thinking….didn’t he said something about a scorpion?? On my way home I discovered they sell insect lollies at the Food-market close to Green River College. I bought one and now I am to chicken to try it thus far!
