A couple of the besties came to visit me in Santa Cruz this weekend since there was no school today because of Presidents Day. Great weekend to party. And party we did.
They left this morning and I was pretty bummed out. I loved having Monrovia friends and Santa Cruz friends mingle with each other. I was sad that roomie Veronica went to Bakersfield and she didn't get to meet them but it's all good. I have a feeling that she will soon. I didn't get any outfit pictures except that last one and that was only an accident. But you can see some glimpses of what I wore. Being with friends was definitely a cheering up time. My parents also had their 33rd anniversary this past weekend and I wish I could have celebrated with them. But they have a surprise from me heading their way thanks to Kristen. I am so glad for this day. It was a great day off. I did some laundry with Shawn and we got some soup at the grocery store and watched some episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Very good day. Veronica just needs to come back and we'll be complete. She needs to get caught up on some things. Smiles.

So for Christmas, one of my gifts was a Starbucks coffee cup for school. It's the one that has a template inside and you can make the cup your own by putting whatever you want inside.
I decided to put what I enjoy and looking at it now, I see the inspirations that guide me through my life. And now I can take my inspiration around with me. I want to share with you what inspires me. Song and dance inspire me, along with fashion sketches, Glee, Gossip Girl, photography, lace, Lady Gaga, Keira Knightley, Emma Watson, vinyl records and cassettes.
I've always thought this day sucks if you're single, and if it doesn't suck then that's called a fluke, but I've realized something today. Nothing ever has to suck.
I had a great day today to be honest, because I had great people surrounding me. And I Skyped one of my best friends ever, Mikey, while eating a Fun Dip, which I used to eat a lot as a kid. That made me very happy.
It's been about a week. A week since I saw my family, but I already miss home. Thank god, I have wonderful people in my life. Or else I wouldn't be able to function. At. All.
So here's to the true soulmates: the beautiful family and friends we have. Smiles.
The past couple days have been pretty rough. But it's always rough when people in your life are suddenly not. I have to let go but I can't just yet. Being away from home at a time like this isn't really ideal at the moment but I have my Santa Cruz peeps to cheer me up. Or try to cheer me up. Even the weird summer in February weather isn't cheering me up. I'm missing it more as every day passes by, the way things were. I just have to get used to it. It's really hard expressing delicate feelings on a blog like this and I don't want to bum people out by doing it. I guess I'll stop here.
On the bright side, some cheering up happened yesterday. Shawn surprised me with a little drive to Davenport Beach a little ways from Santa Cruz. It was beautiful. But even though I had a great time running around taking pictures with Shawn, all I kept thinking about was who could have shared the view with me. We drove back to campus, not before taking a trip to get jalapeno cheese bread. That cheered me up. Food is always good.
