Listening to: Morgan Page – Fuck Was I (remix)
Today was one of those days where I was so productive that I feel like life is too short. And not productive, like WOW I did so much work and ran so many errands, but productive like I saw a lot of friends and had fun all day long and am rightfully exhausted and living up my youth. How funny that after my test, I spent three days essentially doing nothing in my house and it drove me crazy enough to go running to Seattle. And when I finally decide to go to Seattle, suddenly I have tons of plans and not enough time to accomplish all of them.
I woke up this morning around 8, even though my body would probably have wanted to get up at 9:30. I was up late last night watching It’s Complicated, which was surprisingly good but a bit long. I left the house around 8:45 and rode my bike to Jenny’s and then we went biking along the LA “river” with Steven, Kim, and their friend Gin. We rode for 2.5 hours without stopping and I think it was 33+ miles. Normally I’d googlemap it, but I had no idea where the hell we were. I know we saw Rosemead Blvd and the 605 and the 210 freeways. I only have a cruiser which was brutal on the few uphills that we passed. It was really great cloudy weather and being a weekday, not that many people.
It is very, very rare, in fact I can’t really imagine a time when I ever, had an outing that started early in the morning, was not primarily revolving around a meal, involved strenuous exercise, AND was free. AND everyone arrived on time. What an amazing feeling. Unfortunately, at some point, we must have gone over a bunch of weird spikey plant things and ended up getting three flat tires. Not the best ending to our bike ride.
Then we went to eat at Liang’s which is my new favorite Arcadian restaurant. No more freaking Sinbala, seriously. Why I took all my non-Arcadian guests to a restaurant that I never even ate at when I was in high school, I have no idea. My uncle said that he once walked down Baldwin, and between Huntington and Camino Real there were about 40 restaurants on both sides of the street. Which is kind of ridiculous yet believable when you hear it.
Then I biked back home with Steven and had maybe thirty minutes of rest before I had to get ready to go to Owen’s birthday party. Frances C picked me up and we drove to Connie Y’s and I made her come out with us. HEHEHE. It is so easy to say “but you’ll never see me again! You have to come out!” Headed to Irvine and hung around the Irvine Spectrum. I wore makeup today because the most uncomfortable I ever feel is in Irvine Spectrum. I feel incredibly fat, poor, and fashionably incompetent when I walk around there. Plus, I know that there are never going to be good sales there, which is why I hate shopping there. I feel terrible about myself and I don’t even walk away with anything new.
We ate at Yardhouse and I talked to lots of people! This makes me sound like a loner. omg diary, today I talked to real people and it was so weird to not know how they would respond. Unlike the imaginary people in my head. How fun to catch up with friends. I enjoy being blunt with my questioning. The results delight me.
Things I have to do before Friday:
– Watch the latest episode of Pretty Little Liars (clearly the most important one)
– Make a list of everything I want to do/see in Seattle for the next month
– Hang out with Andria and Leneve on Thursday
– Hang out with people tomorrow night?
– Tell my mom where I am going
– Upload the last album of roadtrip pics to facebook
Things I want to do but there is no time:
– Sleepover with TMV girls before the yardsale
– Play in Camarillo 😦
– Play in SD 😦
I am currently eating a chinese bread I bought from 85 degrees. I am starving but I still think it is kind of gross. Which must mean it is really gross. Not impressed with 85. I like normal chinese breads. I want hot dog buns and pineapple buns 😦 I may need to eat a Drumstick to compensate. NO the last time I ate ice cream late at night I got a sore throat! Well. If I already have the sore throat I guess it couldn’t be worse.
THERE weren’t even freaking Drumsticks in my freezer! Ever since I started writing this “LIFE IS SO GREAT” post, everything has fallen below my expectations.
