Things I've noticed

Only one of the bathrooms I've been to throughout Arizona, New Mexico, and Colorado had toilet seat covers.

Too many emotions

At the end of every semester, I always felt relieved and unbelievably ecstatic that the semester was over and my work was done for the time being, always amplified tenfold at the end of spring semester which always promised a longer and more fulfilling break. Last year, all my senior friends told me I wouldn't feel that way in a year's time. And they were right. I don't know how to deal with being home yet feeling like I'm not home at all. I miss Berkeley. I don't want to leave California.

I wouldn't trade one stupid decision for another five years of life

Graduation is this week. Get ready for a week of overly sentimental posts of songs that are currently making me cry.

Turn around, bright eyes

My roommate Hana always buys meal points every semester (even though we have a huge kitchen and 4 fridges and 2 freezers) yet never ends up using even close to all of them by the end of the semester. So during finals week, the whole house ends up going on expeditions to the dining commons, those far-off lands we only ever enter when she decides to buy us all a nice fattening, salty, yet-somehow-also-bland meal.

So tonight we went to have dinner at Crossroads, the dining hall closest to our freshman dorm, to re-live that crazy time four years ago when we would get five plates of food for every meal and like no wonder I gained fifteen pounds freshman year.

Hana said it felt like The Freshmen* were giving us funny looks, like they could tell we are seniors and don't belong.

Or maybe it was because we were talking about The Freshmen really loudly and singing "Total Eclipse of the Heart".

*Yes, with Capital Letters.

Any old time you keep me waiting

Saw the Black Keys/Arctic Monkeys show at the Oracle Arena last night. It was amazing! I didn't think the Black Keys could sell out an arena! The last concert I saw in an arena was The Who!

The Arctic Monkeys played for almost an hour, even though they were technically just the "opening act".  Alex Turner, my future husband, was cute and charming as ever. Although they didn't play "Fake Tales of San Francisco" which I think was a major MISSED OPPORTUNITY.

And the Black Keys were awesome! They played mostly their more upbeat songs, which kept up the temo and energy. My friend had told me she had seen the Black Keys at Cochella last year and they weren't very good which had ruined her taste for them. I don't know what they did then, but this show was amazing and has only served to further solidify my love. I also went with my friend Jeren, would had never been to a concert before. Maybe I've set his standards too high now.
