After a quick weekend trip to Napa Valley, I’m sitting on my flight and pondering the wonder of using the internet while 30,000 feet above the ground. I’m amazed at how far technology has come in just my lifetime, yet annoyed that I paid $10 for internet so I could watch Pretty Little Liars the whole flight home (yes, Jeff won me over) only to discover that Netflix doesn’t work on the inflight internet. I guess video streaming via flight is asking for a little much but maybe I’m a spoiled princess because I’m still going to ask! At this rate I’ll never find out who “A” is…just kidding I think I accidentally already found out when I tried to google how many seasons there are of Pretty Little Liars. Oh and by the way, Gossip Girl is still number one in my heart. This is turning into a teenage girl television rant, not to mention I’m about five years behind on the trends. This is what happens when you only have Netflix and never have cable.
I’m not really feeling the whole “weekend recap” this week, partially because the whole weekend went by so fast that I can hardly process it (aka not ready to admit it’s over) and partially because all of my photos are on my phone and the process of emailing them to my self and then retrieving them with the shady in flight internet seems like way too much of a process for my sleepy little brain. Let’s just talk about what’s happening in that over tired little mind of mine shall we?
-I leave for California again in less than five days…how spoiled am I?! I think you can really call me a part time resident with the amount I’m visiting lately. This next time I’m not visiting my family, instead I’ll be spending four GLORIOUS days with my beautiful sorority Big, Vanessa, in her hollywood starlet apartment in LA. I’m pretty sure I’m going to feel like LC the whole time and I’m definitely going to make people call me that. Sorry, not sorry.
-And speaking of California…it’s really going to be the place to be for Halloween. I’ll be celebrating All Hallow’s Eve in a castle with my family, unlimited wine and a few of my best friends in the whole wide world (Claire, Nicole…and Jeff too). Also my Dad’s going to be wearing a full fledged caterpillar costume…can anyone guess the theme for the group??? I’ll reveal later!
-My class schedule for Fall quarter (which still hasn’t started yet, let’s talk about endless summer…) is totally crazy (or at least it feels like it to me). My advisor wanted to stick me in a choir class for an arts credit I still haven’t completed and I absolutely REFUSED. Only because I didn’t want to outshine the rest of the class. So instead I’m taking a course called “Song of the Church” which I’m hoping an praying is really only the history of music in the church (like my advisor PROMISED it would be) and isn’t a single note of singing, because if I wanted to be in a gospel choir I wouldn’t pay $950 a credit to do it.
-Boo has officially turned into a Diva Star. She will NOT behave for anyone except Jeff and I (…okay just Jeff). This makes vacationing especially difficult because she goes on hunger strikes and looks like an abused dog from the ASPCA commercials when we get home. I felt bad for her at first, except she just has to make life miserable for every friend we rope into pet sitting for us…talk about a needy girl. Does anyone else have a dog with separation anxiety?! How do you cope????
-The most annoying thing happened at the airport. I know, I know, you’re thinking that you don’t care, and you’re right, you probably don’t but I need to vent. After we had already made it through the long annoying security line (definition of every security line) Alaska went and changed the gate for our flight…okay, fine. But guess what, the gate was in a completely different terminal meaning we had to leave and go through security AGAIN. As if going through security once isn’t enough for the day, but twice within an hour…ugh. I was NOT a happy camper, just ask Jeff.
-On that same note, airports are dumb. The main reason for this statement is that the international terminal at the San Francisco Airport has approximately three Gucci stores, a Burberry and a Coach but not a single Starbucks (not even a Peet’s coffee…I mean, desperate times call for desperate measures!). Where is the logic here people?! I guarantee 90% more people are willing to buy a coffee at the airport then a $2,000 purse. Or is that just me? Am I the only one not wanting to update my handbag collection on the fly? I’m probably just bitter that I couldn’t pick up a Burberry purse and instead had to spend $12 on a mocha that was 76% chocolate syrup.
-I’m almost done with the rants, I pinky swear, but not quite! I am in back to school mode my lovely readers. I talked about my fabulous Erin Condren planner (which has already quickly paid off for itself and saved me from at least thirty five anxiety attacks) but I’m addicted. I want cute monogrammed notebooks, I want bright pink pens for taking notes, I want memo pads with deltas and dolphins on them and I want every color of post it note and highlighter in existence. Why are school supplies like crack (not that I would know)?! Where do you find fun back to school supplies? I truly believe pink pens and happy notebooks are the key to academic success.
I think I’ve officially leaked my brain onto this page. I’m as tired as…well so tired that I can’t even think of a clever analogy to make here. What is something really tired?! I hope everyone has had a terrific weekend! I certainly have!
