Planning :: weekends in May and early June. I totally realized that our free-to-do-anything-anytime days are numbered, and that we really need to be taking advantage of them. Thus ... on the schedule: Napa/Sonoma, beach(es), Los Angeles, Bay to Breakers, Santa Cruz.
Have you guys heard of six word stories? Here's a pretty great collection of them for you to skim – and you should! Some of them are seriously powerful. A couple weeks ago, we tried to write some six word stories in my fiction class, and just this weekend, a few friends and I played around with them some more. A very addicting exercise, y'know?
Senior Formal was last Friday at the San Francisco Exploratorium, and while I have sooooo many things I'd like to say about it (and I have ... in my journal... "thank goodness," you say), I thought I'd make a poor attempt at summing up the grand event in short form here. ("You're welcome," I say.)
Ready? *clears throat*
Whiteboard's bought and ready to blog.
What are the sunglasses doing there?
That was my warm up, okay? Okay. For real now.
Should we go? Shouldn't we go?
Can I borrow a dress please?
A party bus is HOW much?!
Splurged on blowout. Now addicted, oops.
Be ready in an hour!? HELP.
My feet hurt. They really hurt.
Looked to right. Saw Hollywood sign.
IDK how to contour, someone help.
My feet REALLY really hurt alot.
New friends, old friends, best friends.
Challenge: take enough pictures. Challenge failed.
Tacky Louis Vuitton adorned party bus.
Slippery floors, loud music, fast highway.
Crank up Beyonce! CRAZY IN LOVEEEEE.
Stopped at Denny's to pee. Yikes.
Got there in a flash. Party!
Beautiful friends, cherished memories, open bars!
Not found: buffet table. Total disappointment.
Forgot to play with exhibits. Fail.
Danced and laughed and was merry.
WHERE IS THE BUFFET TABLE? ANYONE?
Never left photo booth line ever.
"I haven't seen you in forever."
Take a picture with me please!
Had to leave too, too soon.
Couldn't find bus. Ran in rain.
Pouring rain, it made me happy.
Too tired to dance on bus.
Can I take my shoes off?
My feet hurt. Seriously they do.
Will you make me taquitos please?
Isn't this the most blogger-friendly scene you've ever come across? It's the new Blue Bottle location in downtown Palo Alto, and I'm so obsessed. If you think this outside area is darling, you'll go absolutely ga-ga over the whole concept – Blue Bottle Palo Alto actually serves as a part of Hanahaus, which to my understanding is a startup-esque rentable workspace for entrepreneurs. Think Google offices, but for people who work for themselves or small businesses. Genius, right?
I thought it'd be the perfect location for a catch-up over coffee for us. It's certainly been awhile. Yesterday, my roommate and I set our alarms for a quick afternoon nap ... and woke up three hours later. On Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays, I have zero time for anything but classes, homework, club activities, and work. So on Thursdays, I crash.
Needless to say, things have been busy. I constantly seem to be one step behind my schedule. My Bloglovin' reader is backlogged for days (probably the most devastating thing, in all honesty). But I'm not complaining because it feels like the good kind of hectic.
