A (half)Week's Summary

I've been up and out everyday that I slightly forgot what I've done or where I've been. I'm taking classes Mondays and Wednesdays now until the end of summer. (Suck I know.)
+On Thursday Howard and I went to Starbucks to get coffee and breakfast, Blake joined shortly. After breakfast Blake and I biked to Northwood, around Wolftrail, and down all the way to the entrance of Lower Peters Canyon Reservoir, and back to Cedar Grove Park where we just rested for an hour or so. (Approx 22 miles.)  When I got home, my knees were dead tired and they hurt so badly that I had to sit on my bed with my feet up. Of course being the idiot I was, I had biked too much for a person who hasn't biked for a year..
+Friday Blake and I hung out at Starbucks in the morning. I had breakfast and he helped me with calculus while I sat there half confused. But I got it after he explained a majority everything. (thank you so much!) After lunch we went to the Marketplace to watch Super8 and Bridesmaid. Both movies were rather enjoyable.
+Saturday evening Blake, Howard, and I went 2x2 rollerskating at FVCS with Rebecca and her friends. It was hard to balance at first because I felt like I was going to slide from under, but as the night progressed things got better, and I also got it easy cause I was holding onto Blake the majority of the time...hehehe BUT THANKS FOR A GREAT NIGHT ! (:

bleh class tomorrow.

newport beach house

+Chloe and the rest of the crew. Ari drove Blake Alex and me. We arrived late afternoon and went over to Balboa Island, strolled around till sunset. We came back onto west oceanfront for dinner where Chloe Tonya and I prepared the lasagna that Chloe’s mom made, salad, and garlic toast. After dinner Blake and I watched the last of the daylight disappear by the shores and we all came back in to play soda pong. (: after shower, we made s’mores and hung out till 11. The guys were in the back unit playing CoD amd watching stuff from netflix, and we’re in the front unit with the ocean view. Tonya’s had the living room. Chloe had the first bedroom and I was in the backroom. I loved the back bedroom, it’s dreamy and spacious.


+Rushed over to the back unit at 8 am to wake the guys up, & found that the guys had locked their doors during the night (we were facing beachfront and we didn’t even lock any of our doors LOL). Blake won for waking up and opening the door for us. Andrew is knocked out on the sofa. Ari and Alex are hidden in separated bedrooms, and lord and behold Santiago is hidden under the sofa straddling the cushions!
+We walked down two blocks and went to Stuft Surfer Cafè for breakfast. Alex and andrew had French toast. Chloe and Blake had a breakfast burrito, Ari had fried egg and cheese with bacon sandwich, and I got the pancake sandwich.

+After breakfast, we went down to the beach to hangout, lay down, relax. The sun came out at around 2 but the water was still very chilly. At 4 Chloe’s cousins came over and her parents made Korean BBQ and other foods. We sat upstairs watching the waves crashing ashore as we ate.

+A.B.C. and I went out for a walk around the town after lunch. When we came back, Blake and I went body wave crashing, but the water was insanely cold. After a nice hot shower, we had a delicious red velvet cake while watching the sun set. Blake and Ari and Andrew were sharing iPhone games for a while after that (LMAO). And when evening came, we worked as a team to clean up the front unit. Everyone agreed on another game of pong but that quickly turned into salsa pong (ew). 11pm came too soon and so we had to separate ):

+goodbye newport @ 11am.
I had the best time at NP. Sucked to go home, but hopefully we'll do something fun again soon, as a group.


the good life.

livin the soCal beach life....♥

I still have to develop all the film photos on my Nikon FE and scan/post them + blog about my trip. The instagrams above are from today (6.19.11) at Laguna. The first three&last two photo credz go to KN. Today was filled with picnics, bbq, longboarding, bonding with family friends, and just relaxing.

Wrapping Up

The countdown week started off with the Choral Pops concert on tuesday, Spring Show on thursday.
Senior BBQ (pictures up later) was on friday June 3 after school by the quads. Nothing too crazy just catering from (I'm guessing) L&L. Macaroni salad, chicken, rice, chips, beans and chili. There was an ice cream kart. Cookies and creme ftw! And then there was a huge blown up bouncy slide, but stupid me...I decided to go down belly first which ended in a burn on my elbow. :[ After a couple of yearbook signing, I had to go to orchestra and chorus rehearsal. The rest of the night ended with the Pops Concert which was beautiful thanks to W's beautiful concerto solo.
Saturday was prom. I started the morning by going by Andy's house to pick up flowers, then my hairdresser's, back home distributing orders, eating lunch, and doing makeup. We took photos at 4:15 at JOS, then took our limo to dinner at Kimera. C R and I have organized a fixed menu, I had the steak as my main course. I don't have any nice photos because they're in C's camera right now, but when she uploads them... We arrived at Soka at around 8:30.
Sorry for the greenish photo editing. It was 2 am, but I was still too overly excited to sleep.

NHS Prom held at Soka University in Aliso Viejo,CA.
+if anything J and I were a "hit" at 8:14
(DBW 0:40| 2:14 | 3:09 | 4:44) (C 2:58) (AJCC 6:30 | 8:20)

I really enjoyed sitting in the back of the limo because B and I had our own privy booth, which gave me a Chuck&Blair feeling (: I also got matching hennas with J too.
Afterparty at R's. That consisted of homemade pancakes and cookies, fruits, sausages, juice, and cuddling while watching No Strings Attached. We woke up at 11:30 to Down with Love.
Sunday was the chorus banquet. Treble cliff pin, chocolates in the choral mug, fermata clip and chain, & choral pen. Peppino catered.

Everything is flying by. I wish I could stay in highschool forever.
special thanks to 'fwendz' and the boyfran for coming to my concerts
