The Non-Slutty Outfit



So this past halloween weekend...I had so much fun. It's been a long time since I've had that much fun and mainly I had good ol' alcohol to thank for that. I haven't really been partying so much or drinking as much, not like back in the days. So on Saturday since I didn't have to drive...I figured why not just live it up a bit. And then I discovered about 7 drinks later...I was completely wasted. The best part of the night was the fact that we got to go clubbing downtown in tennis shoes...because we were runners for halloween, although everyone kept on calling us "jazzercisers". I didn't care...I danced the night away in my tennis shoes and walked back to the car with pain-free feet! yeah! So...our outfit was so not slutty...compared to all the other girls downtown who were ho'd up...we kept it real. And we made a workout video!! Let's Get Physical!!

Peace. Love. Happy Halloween.

My first Swan Lake Ballet


This past weekend the something "new" that I did was to watch my first ballet ever. Although when I was younger I took ballet and tap dancing, I remember I was in a few recitals. I did like ballet, I just hated wearing those tights and leotards, you see, I wasn't the skinniest of kids growing up, so wearing those things didn't flatter me much. I always felt insecure, and I think if I were to wear the same outfit now at 26, I'd still feel the same way...I am so not a ballerina. But anyways, off subject...the ballet...it was very good. We watched the Kirov Ballet perform Swan Lake. They were performing at the Orange County Performing Arts Center, which has been remodeled into a very beautiful concert hall...I remember when I was younger going there for some plays, and it wasn't as nice, but now its really amazing. I loved it. It was different, the performance plus the live orchestra, it was good. Plus I'd have to say those guys with the tights...they have very muscular legs and nice butts. And the ballerinas, especially the one who plays odelle, she was amazing with her turns and jumps and spins all on her toes. I couldn't believe it.

Also on a small sidenote...I watched The Prestige this weekend...Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale = good combo. Great movie. Lots of twist and turns...loved it.
Peace . Love . Tutus .

Santa Ana brings beautiful Sunsets


Unfortunately I am still at work. But the very cool part about being at work late during the fall season is to see the very pretty sunsets. I am lucky to have probably the best view anyone can ask for at my work. Looking out I see the N.Torrey Pines Golf Course and then the cliffs straight into the ocean. It truly is breathtaking and something I will miss a whole lot when I leave. The Santa Ana winds came in today bringing with it dry weather, but also blowing out a lot of the haziness we get along the coast, making today a beautiful and clear day at the beach. Over the horizon I can see an island popping out of the ocean and the sky is a bright pink/orange. I'll have to take a picture and post it on here soon. But I just sat there and watched the sunset with my co-workers, it's so pretty. During the Summer time I'm not here late enough for the sunsets, its during this time in the fall when I'm still at work where I can enjoy my sunsets again.
Peace, Love, and Sunsets.

Trying something new

I started thinking about life in general and how to make it more exciting. Sometimes you go through some stressful times with working too much...that you don't get to enjoy life as much. Don't get me wrong, I love my work and I love my co-workers, they make work fun. However, sometimes I feel like I have no time to enjoy the little things in life.
I've decided a few weeks ago that I would at least try something new once a week. So far, its worked out pretty well, and I've learned and done a lot of new things that I usually wouldn't have. I went to a new concert, met new people, and ate new things. Some I liked, some I didn't, but at least I can say that I tried it. It's not a big change in life, but it's something. Possibly I would like to continue this till the end of the year and perhaps onto the next year.
I've gone and seen new bands such as Flogging Molly, Bedouin Soundclash, Greg Laswell, and Demetri Martin.
I've made some new friends.
I tried eating kiwi for the first time...yum.
Tonight I'll try a new bar downtown...The Side Bar. We'll see if its any good.
See, just little things in life.
Peace, Love and happy friday the thirteenth

Short Clip of Demetri Martin

demetri martin

Demetri Martin is a funny guy



Demetri Martin opened up his comedy tour in San Diego last Thursday. I have never seen him in person or his shows, but I saw a clip of him on Comedy Central and I thought he was hilarious. So...I really wanted to catch him on his tour "These are Jokes". I am so glad that I was able to go, because he's so funny. I would highly recommend him to anyone out there. And a plus of the evening was that I also got to meet Greg Laswell. It was weird timing because I just had a poll to figure out how old he is...and then I end up meeting him at Demetri Martin's show. Crazy. Anyways...he's even cuter in person and so nice. I was super nervous though, because I think he probably thinks I'm some weird stalker fan or something. Anyways...I took a picture with him...mostly because my co-worker wouldn't believe me if I didn't have proof. I was very excited. very cute and talented Greg Laswell. If you haven't heard of him...go get his album, its worth it.
Peace Love and Laugh

Cigarettes and Chocolate Milk

I am starting to listen to different music now...when I was little I usually just listened to what my parents listened to...The Beatles, BeeGees, Rod Stewart, and Lionel Richie. Then in high school I mostly listened to Sublime, HomeGrown, Unwritten Law, 311, Bush and Blink182. College I listened to a lot of pop and hip hop...Ricky Martin, Shakira, Nsync, Britney Spears, and 80's. Now...I pretty much listen and will try anything. I started getting into more dance/electronic music due to the influences of a couple of friends and after lovefest how can you not like that music. And now I'm getting into a lot of folky music...currently I am loving Matt Costa...I don't think there is one song that I don't like on his album. It's so good. Other small artists that you might want to try are Joshua Radin, Rufus Wainwright, Snow Patrol, Turin Brakes, Athlete, Imogen Heap, Jump Little Children, and Priscilla Ahn. It's a bit different from what I'm used to, but if your in the mood for something different, I would definitely try some of these artist. They are new to me and all in my ipod...love them. Try something new.

Peace Love and Soul

Concerts are fun







This past weekend I went to see Bedouin Soundclash who was playing with Flogging Molly. I was mostly there to see Bedouin and my friend Leina was mostly there to see Flogging Molly. It was so much fun...we drove all the way up to Irvine just to check them out. I am a huge fan of Bedouin but have never seen them live. I thought they were really great, but I think they should have played a little longer...it was too short. Then Flogging Molly came up...so great!! They are so good live. Too much energy and the crowd went crazy...I saw the biggest mosh pit ever, and it was insane! They are definitely a band I would go back to see. Awhile back I also went to an Ozomatli concert. I've seen Ozomatli several times already, a few at UCSD and some up in LA. I absolutely love them, one of my most favorite bands, especially live. They are so much fun and its all positive music which makes them so good live. I haven't seen them for a long time, so it was great to see them again. Plus they are coming out with a new album soon. I'm excited. A few weeks ago I also went to check out Greg Laswell at the Belly Up. His music is on the mellow side. He was also very good live. If you could check him out, I would definitely recommend it. Plus the guy is super cute. Here's a picture of him...how old do you think he is...because I made a bet with my co-worker and I can't seem to find out how old he is...so I'm taking a poll and averaging it and whoever is closer wins the bet. So let me know how old you think he looks!! Thanks.

















Peace Love and MUSIC.
