december 5, 2010.
wake up late, it's a lazy sunday.
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.
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.
