Best thing, getting the chance to experience fresnos night life that’s usually vibing and brings everyone (ethnics) together for a good time. Unfortunately, working at a bank that’s open Monday-sat from 9-6 (yes 6 on saturdays too). I don’t get much of a “friday” w work the next day. So im forced to do things that don’t require being up till the wee hours of the morning. I make the best of it though….
