Last night, I went to Portland State University to see their India festival hosted by their Indian Student Association.

Indian events aren't what I remember them to be. I crack up because as a teen I remember my parents dragging me to go to these Indian events. I remember those events used to be boring and usually full of uncles and aunties and old people and nobody my age.

I had a good time yesterday with my friends. And of course, there was dancing. I went to watch a couple of my friends sing. I met some interesting people, ate, socialized and checked out a couple of handsome men.
