HOLY STEVIE! Last night was pretty incredible! I was surprised to find myself invited to see Stevie Nicks and Rod Stewart at the Oracle Arena! Stevie still has it, Rod never really had it but damn, "Maggie Mae" is kind of a great song.

I will be increasing the amount of scarves that I wear post haste.

my bubbles my bubbles!

The birthday joy continues! Thanks for the bubbles, Darcy!

What an amazing day! Seriously, you ask for maracas, and the universe hands you a piƱata & maracas! Not a bad way to say "hello" to my mid to late twenties! We did a day of wine tasting at Urban Legends Cellars with the ladies and then went home to have some pizza!I'm so lucky!

Translation: means "I love you"

Broken Social Scene played in SF @ the Warfield this week! I went with some friends and had an amazing time, even though all the floor tickets were sold out and the drinks were crazy expensive!
I do miss the old line up (FIEST!), but some things never change: BSS always makes me wish I had a set of maracas! 

Wee saw the weirdest thing, a dude sitting by himself eating marijuana buds like they were skittles! Seriously, the crazy things you see at shows.

Grad School Update

It's finally spring quarter! The best quarter of the year! Or maybe because the weather is so nice, the most torturous? Either way, its been gorgeous out here and I'm having no problem imagining that this is really the beginning of an endless summer.

Winter quarter was a doosey. I took
Governmental Budgeting & Quantitative Research Methods, and worked my butt off. I learned all kinds of things that were very number oriented and really stretched out of my comfort zone. I ended up getting A's in both courses, which felt kind of like getting A's in AP courses in high school because they were so hard. After a non-existent Spring Break (thank you, work), I could really use a vacation. Even a mini one, or a stay-cation. Given the course load for this quarter (Public Program Policy Evaluation & Human Resource Management in the Public Sector), I don't think that will be happening!

Even without the vacay, I've got plenty to look forward to: April Birthday Madness (Jenell, Molly &; Nikki all in one week)that will include a visit from one, Alison P, and wine tasting in Oakland! Let the mid to late twenties begin!

She & Him, "In the Sun"

I've had this song in my head for days now. This video is incredible, and features my incredible girl crush, Zooey Deschanel. I guess M. Ward is in there somewhere, too.

My spring break (whoo!) goal is to learn the dance. No joke.

Hope you love this as much as i do! When my roommate saw this she asked "Hipsters do choregraphy?"

Don't miss the slow motion hulu hooping/wink combo. I saw it and died a little......
