Lately I Can’t Get Enough…

REST.

The past week and a half have been spent = finishing all of my finals, graduating, packing, driving 6.5 hours, unpacking, chatting with old friends, more unpacking, organizing, and working (for an entire week already)… This weekend is already booked solid with an appointment, two Angels baseball games, and attending a friend’s graduation.  And then next weekend I hope to drive to Disneyland after work on Friday to participate in the 24-hour Disneyland event that weekend, followed by another appointment and a family Memorial Day Party.

And I have two shows at the beginning of June (You should all watch Guys Choice Awards & Critics’ Choice Television Awards!!), followed by a family vacation/reunion to New Orleans (for my parents 25th wedding anniversary) and Pensacola, Florida.  [It’ll be the first time in almost 10 years that I’ve been to Pensacola, plus my entire mom’s side of the family will be there, so I am super psyched! And I haven’t been to New Orleans in years!] I also want to participate in the LA Color Run in late June.

Even with all that in mind, and my brain partially asleep right now, I still have a lot I want to do in the upcoming months.  But thankfully I don’t have to rush to get it all done within the normal 3 month summer break – perks of being a college graduate!

To Do List:

1.  Hike to the Hollywood sign

2.  Go to Disneyland & California Adventure

3.  Meet a celebrity

4.  Go to a concert

5.  Go camping (Even if it’s in my backyard or my living room)

6.  Make home-made ice cream

7.  Have a BBQ

8.  Go on a bike ride

9.  Have a photo shoot

10.  Explore somewhere new

11.  Go to an Angels game

12.  Eat beignets!

13.  Try something new

14.  Don’t spend money for an entire day

15.  Be surprised

16.  Have a movie night with my best friends

17.  Travel

18.  Impress my boss

19.  Cook dinner for my parents (maybe on their anniversary)

20.  Eat s’mores

21.  Learn to French braid & fishtail braid my own hair

22.  Explore parts of Southern California that I’ve never been to before

 

Can You Hear That?

So no one told you life was going to be this way.

Your job’s a joke, you’re broke, and you’re love life’s DOA.

It’s like you’re always stuck in second gear,

Well, it hasn’t been your day, your week, your month, or even your year.

But, I’ll be there for you, when the rain starts to pour.

I’ll be there for you, like I’ve been there before.

I’ll be there for you, cause you’re there for me too.

You’re still in bed at ten, the work began at eight.

You’ve burned your breakfast, so far, things are going great.

Your mother warned you there’d be days like these,

But she didn’t tell you when the world has brought you down to your knees.

That, I’ll be there for you, when the rain starts to pour.

I’ll be there for you, like I’ve been there before.

I’ll be there for you, cause you’re there for me too.

No one could ever know me, no one could ever see me.

Seems like you’re the only one who knows what it’s like to be me.

Someone to face the day with, make it through all the rest with,

Someone I’ll always laugh with, even at my worst, I’m best with you.

It’s like you’re always stuck in second gear,

Well, it hasn’t been your day, your week, your month, or even your year.

But, I’ll be there for you, when the rain starts to pour.

I’ll be there for you, like I’ve been there before.

I’ll be there for you, cause you’re there for me too.

I received the entire Friends series on DVD as a gift for Christmas… and I cannot stop watching.  Even though I have homework to get done and an exhibition to prep for, I continuously watch episode after episode.  And even as I watch my DVDs, I find myself searching for blooper clips on YouTube.

I hear The Vampire Diaries echoing up to my room as my brother watches his recording downstairs, VERY loudly I might add.  And then I hear him practically stomping up the stairs (which he swears is just the regular way he walks up stairs) to come into my room and remind me that pitchers and catchers report for Spring Training in 11 days.  I hear my printer going crazy as I print out the 50 pages (yes, I said 50!) of images I have to know for my Art History exam in two weeks… And that is with 4 images per page!  I hear the clicking of my laptop mouse as I scroll over the hundreds of posts on my Pinterest homepage, another one of my brilliant procrastination techniques that comes back to bite me in the ass.  I hear Becky continuously reminding me that our senior show is in less than 20 days… TIME TO FREAK OUT! 

Lately everything goes back to the show.  The last milestone I have to conquer before I can graduate in May.  Like I said, TIME TO FREAK OUT!  I am going to be so incredibly relieved after February 22 when I am completely done with this show.
