The most frustrating adventure that Samantha and I have been on was when we took a trip to downtown Tampa for an East Lake hockey game held at Amalie arena. I, being someone who goes to Amalie arena almost weekly for a lightning game, decided we didn’t need a GPS to tell us how to get to our destination. Needless to say, we did. After we passed the exit we were supposed to get off of, Sam finally convinced me that we needed to get directions for where we were going, which was an epic fail. These directions took us on about three different toll roads that placed us in the exact place we started 30 minutes ago. After having a panic attack because we had no idea where we were other than the fact that we were in a scary neighborhood, we decided to call my dad, got the right directions and were on our merry way. Exit 44 will stick in our heads forever and we will never forget the exit to get to downtown Tampa again.

Another adventure for the books was the 2018 Gasparilla, also in downtown Tampa. We made the mistake of parking in who knows where, which led was walking what felt like 10 miles to the parade. I think it is safe to say that Sam and I were indeed the only sober people at Gatsby. The only thing we had on our minds was beads. After finessing our way to the front of crowds of people we finally got the cool beads before the parade even started. Following that. we walked again what felt even longer over the bridge and to Bayshore where the parade was actually happening. We saw people throwing up, passing out and so much more we decided it was time for us to start venturing for the car and heading home, not even staying for the parade.

The adventures that we live for are the last minute trips to the mall and dinner, which usually happens every other Friday on our pay day. We either go to BJ’s and get pizza and pizookie or get something on the healthier side and get sushi. Days like these are what we live for as best friends, we both have such busy schedules that we don’t have the time to hangout everyday like most duos do, other than working together once or twice a week.

Having the friendship that I do with Sam is something I will always be thankful for. These are the little moments that we will both hold on to along with the crazy pictures captures along the way.
