During winter break Ashley Nakagawa went to the mall with her friend, Izabelle Larson, and had an adventurous time. She went on Friday, February 23rd to Westfield Oakridge mall. Ashley and Izabelle originally went to watch Black Panther. Ashley was at the mall from 11:30 am to 5:00 pm.

When they arrived at the theater there was barely anybody there so they were able to take as many seats as they wanted. Ashley said, “It was fun to watch a great movie and take up as many seats as you wanted.”

After the movie is when the real adventure starts. Ashley and her friend went to Fun Factory which is an arcade in the mall. When they walked in they looked around and only really found one game they wanted to play. The game they decided to play was a Walking Dead game. They bought a card that started with ten dollars on it. They played for about 5 mins before they both died. With ten dollars, they spent 20 mins playing. They liked the game so much that Ashley reloaded the card with ten more dollars on it. They spent it all on that one game.

“The trip to the mall wasn’t really planned but it was so much fun,”Ashley said. “I liked how we had no idea what we were going to do after the movie.” This wasn’t her first time, though. Ashley and her friend had been to the mall multiple times; all of them not planned. “It’s better if it’s not planned,” Ashley said.

Afterwards, they had no more money to spend at the arcade. Ashley and her friend went to a photo booth in the mall. They stayed there for about ten minutes. They were listening to music while looking at their phones. After the photo booth they started to  walk to Sears. When they arrived to Sears, Ashley said she snuck off, leaving her friend all alone.

After this big adventure, it all  came to an end. They got picked up by Izabelle’s mom. Ashley and her friend had lots of fun and can’t wait until the next great adventure.
