Well hello there.

So I was told that I must update my blog, for some reason or another. My problem is that I have nothing much to talk about. I am in Washington right now. I wake up, hang out with my parents, go to bed. Sometimes I go to the store. Right now I’m at Q CafĂ©, which is pretty cool. I’m a fan of Eugene Cho/One Day’s Wages. 10% of their sales go to outside charities, and this month it’s going to a women’s center. I work with a women’s shelter and homeless women are close to my heart, so I like that.

Anyway, I’m also very excited to go to San Diego. I’m hoping to get a job with LEGO Land, which would be totally awesome. Haven’t heard from them yet, though. The main thing I’m not looking forward to is the heat. Flagstaff has been cold when I was there. Seattle has about the same high temperature. Escondido has been around 80 every day. But I’ll get used to it. If it gets too hot, I’ll go to the beach. It’ll be lovely.

So yeah, not much has happened. Except I forgot to put the dogs’ food inside one day and a raccoon came up to eat it. The dogs freaked out.
You can tell he's freaking out because it's blurry.

And I discovered that raccoons are terrifying. I’m from a city; wildlife should not be able to come up to your back door.
Sure, we had coyotes come up to our back gate in California, but they aren’t terrifying. They’re harmless and/or adorable. I will back this up with pictures I found on the Internet:


As much as I’m very excited for California, there are a few things I will miss from Washington:

  1. When it’s sunny, everything is so unnaturally green and pretty. I like this. Of course, it’s cloudy more than it isn’t. Which makes sense. If it didn’t rain so much it wouldn’t be so green. It also gets dark much later, which is cool.
I took this picture last year. Still looks the same.

  1. Good coffee. California: Good Mexican food. Washington: Good coffee.
I took this picture just now while trying to look like I wasn’t taking a picture of myself. 

     3. Adorable puppy dogs

     4. My lovely parents.
I like living without them, but I still miss them when I go too long without seeing them.

That being said, I'm totally stoked for California. One more week!

Fascinating, isn't it?

So I was wandering around facebook wondering if I could find something to distract me from my extra credit paper for a little while and I noticed that my dear friend Alida had changed her profile picture to a cool-looking mosiacy sort of picture. Upon further inspection* I discovered that it was a picture survey of sort. I had done it before, but decided to give it another go.

Here we are!
And from Left to Right, row by row:
1. First Name
2. Favorite Food
3. Where I went/go to school
4. Favorite Color
5. Celebrity Crush
(In the picture, the "No" part of "No, Thank You" got cut off)
6. Favorite Drink
7. Dream Vacation
8. Favorite Dessert
9. What I want to be when I grow up
10. What I love most in life
11. One word to describe me
12. My nickname.

According to a facebook note I wrote last August, I've also done this in August and March 2009. The questions are slightly different:
5 is "what is your middle name", 7 and 8 are switched, 10 asks when my birthday is, and 11 and 12 are 10 and 11 in my more recent mosaic. (That's not confusing, is it?)

So: August 2009

And March 2009:

Some differences, some similarities. In all honesty, I cannot for the life of me remember most of what I searched for in the earlier ones. I think my most recent one is my favorite, aesthetically. 

But yeah. That's about it.

(I'm signing off with a little kiss, now. It shows I'm friendly and personable and such.)

*You can tell I'm writing a paper when my writing gets all formal-like.
