tangled up in blue.


I needed to do something fun, something different, something to remind to stop taking everything so seriously all the time.

I mean...why not?

home sweet home.


I made a pizza with my mom! Sun-dried tomato pesto, olives, artichoke hearts, goat cheese, parmesan, and fresh basil! We also made the dough from of the best pizzas I've ever made/eaten.

Break has been good so far, except that I've been sick the entire time. I think my body doesn't understand this whole "relaxation" concept. I've watched a ridiculous amount of movies--Inception, The Wizard of Oz, Beauty and the Beast, Black Swan, part of Zombieland and now Ponyo. Even though I haven't gone out all that much, it's nice to be home.

a day in the life.

december 5, 2010.

wake up late, it's a lazy sunday.



november playlist.

cloudy day in berkeley.

run into the lovely director of caltv cinematography, myles.

i find my friends by the BART station!

we go to the sunnyside cafe, one of the best breakfast places in berkeley.

PANCAKES. so effing good.

johnny shows up, "i'm still drunk!"

we stay there for about four hours, just talking and catching up and attempting to avoid the rain. i start to play with my food.

we go next door for cinnamon rolls, i'm too full but chin & johnny share this blueberry pie cinnamon roll.

it starts POURING on the way home.

get home, get in bed, and start reading on my kindle.

then, i get stuff out to make latkes.

they turn out AMAZING, my mom's recipe is flawless.

i light the hanukiah with my friend hillary, in cal colors of course.

afterwards, i go to see "love & other drugs" with katie, johnny, & doug. the theater is empty for the most part, though a few people shuffle in at the last minute.

laughter ♥


Life is good. Currently in the midst of finals but they're almost over and then I'll be back in Los Angeles for about a month! I can't wait. This semester has been the most difficult of my life--two jobs, school full-time, plenty of drama, important life decisions/changes, etc., but I made it through. I became a regular at a bar (one of the best decisions I've ever made, seriously, I've met some amazing people there), continued to reign supreme at board games, discovered an unparalleled love of whiskey, went to a lot of concerts (best of which was Band of Horses, where we stood in the very front at the Greek and listened to them under the stars), wrote a million papers, started planning my thesis...I grew up a lot this semester. I finally put the past behind me and really started to focus on the future, whatever that may be. I've got my health, my family, my education and my friends...don't need anything else.
