happy halloween!

what a fun weekend. it was exactly what i needed after a harsh week of midterms (did i mention my 94% on my statistics exam? yeah!) never mind i had a six page paper due monday, i went down to santa cruz to celebrate halloween. with a very last minute costume i paraded through the street with hulk hogan, jesus, and a bunch of raccoons. my friends are amazing, i can't believe how fast time flew, but it was a very necessary get together :)
with sara and sheri
travis was an awesome hulk hogan!
sheri did an excellent job being tim
i was a substitute teacher.
like the paper airplane?

aaah. what a crazy week. i'm so happy to be done with my first round of midterms. now i can sit back and relax. kind of. the quarter is picking up, so from here on out it's "get serious" time. after finishing my genetics midterm i decided to let my built up creative energy take form in some new art pieces for my apartment. it was a much needed painting session after a crazy hectic week of studying studying studying. i've been doing a lot of journal writing lately. there is a lot going on in my head, way too much thinking. way more than i'm used to. at least i'm coming to some good conclusions.

life in davis

A lot of people have been asking me lately about how I'm liking my new life in Davis. To put it quite simply, life is amazing. The weeks are crazy and the weekends are crazier. It's such a different pace for me, but I'm loving every second of it. I've got my first round of midterms next week and I'm feeling good about them. The weeks go by so quickly, I'm already starting to think about which classes I want to take next quarter.

The main reason for my relaxed state of mind is mainly my wonderful roommates. I really did luck out, I got some of the coolest girls I've ever met all living in one apartment with me. Adee is such a sweetheart. She is on the Davis gymnastics team and always knows where the fun sports events are. She talks to her parents everyday studies all the time. She is very motivated and I totally admire that in her, she does so much, I would never be able to keep up. Monica is awesome, she is such a free spirit. She has a job on campus so she is always at school. She has great taste in music and she embraces life with such a charismatic attitude that puts light in her eyes. She is always smiling and always positive, which is extremely nice to be around. Chelsea is the wild child of the bunch. She is very energetic, always doing something. She has a crazy school schedule so she's always in and out throughout the day. She has a huge network of friends and hates staying home on the weekends, so by the time we're all exhausted from the school week she has plenty of options for fun times. She is goal oriented and a hard worker. Our paths cross many times during the day as we are all on different schedules, but at the end of the week days we all take a break from life and sit around the TV in our pajamas and watch Scrubs. These ladies have made it SO EASY for me to come blindly into a new town and fit right in like I've been here from the beginning. They are so welcoming and so comforting, it really makes this place feel like home. I especially love when Monica comes home and greets us with, "Hello family."

always coming back home to you

i can't believe it's already thursday. i feel like it was just yesterday that i was bathing in musical magic at the Atmosphere show. every weekend is a new, fun adventure for me. i went home again, it seems i can't stay away for too long. these were special circumstances though. my little brother just turned sixteen. where does the time go? he's such a little man now, and i can't even really say little because he's taller than me. he has grown up into such a wonderful person, i am so proud of him in every way imaginable.

friday night i went to the Gilman to see an amazing band Modern Life is War play. i have a love/hate relationship with hardcore shows. i love the music, i love how passionate it can be, and i love how it can give me goosebumps. i hate being small, and a girl, in a room full of big guys that go crazy and make it so that i have to stand in the back of the room so that i don't get elbowed in the face, stage-dived on, or slammed against the stage. i know i can't complain if i'm in the splash zone, but sometimes i just want to be completely absorbed in the music in that moment without having to guard my face from two-steppers.

saturday was better. we spent all day at the beach in santa cruz. riding roller coasters, eating ridiculously greasy food, and playing in the sand. i borrowed my step-dad's camera and my goodness i must have it. the pictures were amazing. check them out:
helloooo scrapbooking material! after the beach we went to see my *favorite* hip/hop artist Atmosphere. that show was so amazing, probably in my top five shows of all time. the music is inspiring on so many levels. it was perfect.

also, i saw Across The Universe, that new movie with all the Beatles music. that movie was so intense, i need to see it again. it was amazing the way they put the music into real life situations, and the visual effects were perfect. it really made me think about a lot of things. i highly recommend it.

alright, enough procrastination. time to go read about genetics!

what a crazy fun weekend. i swear, every time i come back to Walnut Creek for some scrapbook therapy i get a surge of creativity like never before. i cannot even express in words how wonderful this weekend was. Renee the most awesomest girl ever is in town! i don't think i've ever talked so much in my life, we had lots to catch up on and i cherished every second i spent with her and kicking myself because we didn't even get a picture together! seeing my friends, coworkers, loved ones, even if it was for a second it was just what i needed to gain some creative ambition. it was such a screamin' good time, i completely lost my voice. it may be due to lack of sleep in recent days, but this weekend was nothing short of amazing. anyway, my eyes are straining to stay open, i had to post a few pictures of my newest notebook for school. dream land here i come :)
