Girl Rant! Sorry..

There's always that one week each month that almost every girl dreads. (Yeah, I'm going there.) And girls always know this week has arrived when their skin just isn't behaving, the small things are enough to drive them crazy, and they find themselves crying into a pillow at night for no good reason. And then sometimes they do have good reasons.

I'm scared.

Scared of living without my parents for the first time. Scared of the same lack of friendships as I had at OCC. Scared of relationships diminishing from distances that aren't so long. Scared of not knowing how to cook dinner for myself each night besides mac & cheese and ramen. Scared that I never have a real plan or answer when people ask me what I want to do after college. But for the most part, it's a general scared for the general future.

And I'm coming up very close to the point where I no longer want to tell people just how scared I'm getting because I'm tired of the same response. "Don't be scared! You'll be fine, so stop worrying." Cause quite frankly, that's not what I want to hear. I know that I will be fine because I've got God as my support group. But that does not mean that parts of me won't freak out beforehand.

Sometimes, a girl just needs a hug in order to know that things will be okay.

Rant over.

Foster the People - Pumped up Kicks

Young Padawan

So, I've come to the realization that I tend to take out any implusive urges I have on my hair. Mostly cause I hate permanent change, and I can always tell myself that hair grows.. la, la, la.

This time next month, I will be rather nauseous and terrified.

I know San Diego isn't far, but like I've written before.. it might as well be on the other side of the country. And in the back of my head, I keep making lists and lists of everything I want to do before I move. All of the things I need to buy. I keep telling myself to finally write down all of these lists, but I am lazy. Here is one..

Things to do before I leave:

-trip to Catalina
-back to school shopping? (doubtful)
-watch lots of Lord of the Rings
-DISNEYLAND. (all day, err'day)
-Little Saigon with my mother, where lots of ramen, lichi jello, and shrimp chip will be purchased
-drag my brother to Costco so I can stock up on the random essentials (he doesn't know this yet)
-LA Museum trips!
-lots of couch sitting and tv watching with my best friend
-get the bosses their goodbye presents
-packing (understatement)
-find a cheap backpack
-OC Foodie Fest!!

I know I'm gonna run out of time.

14er's club

Whitney post! I don't really know what to say about this other than that this is defintely one amazing, unforgettable hike. I'm pretty bummed that I wasn't motivated to take more pictures at the time. I was super happy that there was a still a lot of snow on the trail and even more happy that I didn't have to poop in a bag. Yeah..

I'm starting a tradition where robots are involved whenever we sign books in cool places.

Monday Annoyances:

1. Getting the hiccups.. A LOT. My seventh one was literally 10 minutes ago.
2. Having a constant craving for chocolate that can't seem to be satisfied.
3. Getting a huge scratch on my leg from one of the shipments that came in today.
4. Lack of sleep.

Okay, gonna attempt to solve 2 out of my 4 annoyances right now, starting with chocolate.
Goodnight, world.

Yosemite Pt. 2

Hello, my pretties. Yosemite pt. 2 was pretty freaking awesome. Hiking this time was much easier on the way up, but my knees got pretty beat up for the second half of the trip. We met some pretty cool people at the top, and at one point I was surrounded by a rainbow while walking alongside a waterfall. It was probably one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen in life, minus the rather annoying tourists. Watching the sunrise at the top of Half Dome is absolutely unforgettable..

Fourth time making it to the top. I wish I had done a cheesy pose like this for each hike. That would've been fun. New life goal: go to every national park in the U.S.
