Hello friends! It’s been a minute hasn’t it? How has everyone been? Doing well? Good.
So thanks to Ji-San, I finally got the chance to dust the cobwebs off of my camera yesterday! And I’ve noticed that a few things generally tend to happen when we get together. These include (but are not limited to): fleeing from authority, getting into potentially awkward situations with Chinese cyclists, and, maybe most importantly, making people’s minds implode. I guess we’re kind of boring.
Whitney Houston’s isolated vocal track on “How Will I Know.” Damn. One of the best to EVER do it.
aaron, darryl, and i had the absolute pleasure of accompanying patrick while he played dj at homecoming this past weekend! while he was busy with the ol’ 1s and 2s, the three of us got our jollies by cat daddying, making ghost noises into active microphones, and throwing looks of judgment at prepubescent students whose dresses were not long enough to cover their baby vaginas. girls, don’t you have mirrors? or mothers?
being upwards of eight years older than the majority of the people around you is both awkward and amazing, and after experiencing it firsthand there is just one question that’s been plaguing my mind: when’s winter formal? :)
fyi—there are two videos also posted below, but if you’re reading this from your tumblr dashboard you may need to click through to my page in order to view them!
12 things (illustrated in 12 photos) that my friends and i revel in: japanese delicacies, the real housewives of hapifish sushi, designated drivers who drink cupcake flavored wine while simultaneously sending out texts, union kitchen & tap, reunions with old friends from high school, being a boss while wearing an awkward jack daniels promo hat, questionable free samples of whiskey, planking, theta kites and dg anchors, middle fingers, dyson airblades, and finally, brownie/ice cream desserts that come wrapped in sushi form.
total blackout, candles lit, AM news on the radio, and enjoyed every minute of it.
went to the identity festival last night! i’m pretty sure that my attendance was completely conducive to the weird ass dream i had this morning: i was at a renaissance fair where the main event was a rollerblading race (a la brink), and the guest judge was zooey deschanel who happened to be wearing a lipstick red prom dress from the 80s. i mean, what?
ID fest was for sure an entertaining concert that was filled with the most enthusiastic fist pumpers and scantily-clad-but-don’t-worry-i’m-still-wearing-knee-high-furry-boots-to-keep-me-warm girls i’d ever seen. and for that, i say bravo to you identity. bravo to you.
what kind of saturday afternoon would it be if kate and i didn’t treat ourselves to a wine tasting after attending cardiff’s canine festival? carruth cellars, we love you (almost as much as your staff and patrons love us).
is it any wonder why this is my most favorite surf event of the year?
ah, punta cana. although this tourist destination is famous for its beautiful beaches and palatial balnearios, i personally know it best as the home of all-you-can-eat french fries, ambiguously sculpted towel animals, and a guido whose legal name is actually “guido”.
my parents and i embarked on a vacation last week to this particular place with a gang of our longtime family friends. we spent our days lazing by the ocean, eating our butts off, and finding sand in the most random of orifices. it was glorious.
below is a quick summary of our travels; if you’re looking for some more in-depth coverage, i uploaded a few handful of photos from the trip into five batches for your high-resolution viewing pleasure: batch uno, batch dos, batch tres, batch cuatro, batch cinco. ole!
the course of life is ever changing, but there is one thing that always holds constant: there ain’t no party like a country concert party.
with that idiom in mind, my friends and i attended a sugarland show last night! like the true fervent enthusiasts of country music we are, we headed to the venue beforehand to tailgate in one of the nearby parking lots. by the end of our two hour camp-out, what with our hearts filled with joy and our hands filled with (empty) bottles of alcohol, it became incredibly clear—we were totally
i spent my day drinking peach tea out of a magic bullet party mug, finding/naming/encouraging baby lizards at the beach, and watching a hunk play a wind instrument that is indigenous to northern australia. what did you do today?
wow tumblr, you’ve really done it this time.
this new photoset feature is too cool for school (i mean, you can click on the individual images to enlarge them!). i had completely forgotten to post these photos from a couple of fridays ago of my day with paul, but now i’m glad i inadvertently waited so that i could display them using this hip new layout. totally patting my subconscious on the back right now.
the weather in san diego this weekend was beautiful. so beautiful in fact, that an impromptu, post-workout backyard barbecue filled with sliders, sausage dogs, guacamole, and, uh, stability balls? was completely necessary.
