Welp folks. It’s happened. It’s been happening all year actually. I feel terrible.
I know I haven’t exactly been faithful with posting on Saturdays, but I really wasn’t feeling well.
I’m starting to feel better though! I couldn’t go to work yesterday, but some things can’t be avoided. Oh well.
Anyhoo… This week and next I will be preparing to go on my very first ever vacation! Eek! I’m so excited and nervous and anxious and happy all at the same time. Continue reading
It’s another late post, but I had a good reason for not writing yesterday… I went to Las Vegas! I was there all day without my laptop, so I couldn’t write until today.
I’m a California girl, born and raised. Up until yesterday, I’ve never set foot outside the state line or hardly even traveled inside of California.
That thought makes me sad. I’ve always wanted adventure, to see the world. I’ve never really cared for it in California, so I’ve always dreamed of going elsewhere. But I’ve never had the chance.
Well Las Vegas is only like a 3-4 hour drive away, but it is in a different state, so that has to count for something! 😉
Have you ever done something or gone somewhere and the memory of it is just so incredible to you that you know you will never forget it? This was one of those times for me. I was sixteen years old, and it was Josh Groban!
I couldn’t believe it when I was presented with the opportunity to go see him perform at the Hollywood Bowl. It was a dream come true! Ever since his album “Closer” came out in 2003, I was a massive fan of his. Okay fine, I still am! Haha! I was so excited, it was literally all I could think about. It consumed my every waking moment!
I went to the 41st San Dimas Festival of Arts show with my phone camera primed and ready for plenty of pictures (I don’t have an actual camera, but I am looking for one). I started to take pictures of some of my favorite pieces and then noticed some people eyeing me uncomfortably. I took that as a signal that I should probably ask for permission to take pictures.
I hurried back to the main desk to ask the people in charge if I could take pictures and to my intense disappointment the main guy said no. I tried to tell him that I’m a blogger looking to write a post about the festival and he still didn’t budge. Didn’t he understand that I had nothing but the best intentions!?Finally I respectfully put my phone away and just enjoyed the show. Continue reading
I really don’t know why I haven’t done this sooner.
What is life like for me?
Well, for those of you who don’t know me, I am a small-town girl in my early twenties who is just trying to stay afloat in this thing called life. I dream of adventure, but at the end of the day I like to “play it safe”. And that’s okay. Contradictions seem to be a part of my life; I’ve learned to deal with it. 😉 Continue reading
