Groovy London

Groovy London clubs, pub and bar highlights:
Cafe de Paris - cover bands, confetti cannon
Freedom - TU kids not realizing it's actually a gay bar
Lock Tavern - out door seating, hipster eye candy (even if they don't talk to me)

Sorry this is a weak post. I may post again in the near future with pictures, or I may leave this for another 6 months

Home Again Home Again Jiggity Jig

After I moved my stuff to the new summer apartment, my parents and I stayed in Philly so they could actually see the city. We rented a gross hotel room, but were like whatever we'll deal with it. When we went to take showers in the morning though the water was all brown. My dad
went to complain/get our money back and they gave us half off because of gross water and half off for the reason listed as 'wife distressed' haha. He hadn't even said anything about my mom being upset. I guess that's just a standard discount? Anywho, before we noticed the brown shower water, me and my mom found a HUGE hairball! It was so gross. This is a picture of her
putting a cup over it so we didn't have to look at it.

Chloe liked the duck horn just as much as Corrie and Dee haha. My sister and Alec weren't as happy when they had to drive home with a very loud duck in the back seat.
Tomorrow it's back to Philly! It's going to take me like all day to get there, but I'm excited!

I don't know what to blog about...
I'm home. It is gorgeous and sunny but a little cool. Everything is so green here. I forgot how good and fresh it smells.
It took us 8 hours to get home. Before that I showed my parents around Philadelphia a little bit. I think they liked it. The car ride was excruciating though. My iPod was trapped in the back so we had to listen to my dad's which is 95% blues. Some of the music is good, but after 8 hours of blues with nothing to read and only the highway scenery to distract me it got a little painful.
My sister, brother in law and niece are coming today! And I guess my nephew is coming too via my sister's prego belly. It's so bizarre. I've been away for so long that it doesn't seem like she's actually pregnant. It's so different this time - being so far away I mean. It's definitely bittersweet.
I'm going back to Philly on Tuesday! I'm bussing it all the way back which is always an adventure, and then I'll arrive at my AMAZING apartment. Seriously the location is amazing and the apartment is the cutest thing ever. I cannot wait to explore!
My sister and maybe my mom apparently compared Philadelphia to Iraq haha. I'm not even sure what that means

Summer Songs and Sentiment

i just found a piece of cereal in my wallet haha. new low.

i should really call veronica. and my dad. i'm definitely not going to dinner with the plannies and their spouses when i get home. god i am SO grateful for the friends I have now and that I escaped Amesbubble.

i'm sooo excited to live in Philly this summer. i don't know how it'll go. sometimes it might be hard but i am so excited for the adventure and just relieved (i haven't totally figured out why)

this has been a fantastic yet bizarre year. i learned so much and got so much closer to amazing people.

Oh Hey There

I haven't posted in over a month! I'm sorry. I'm back now.

I don't think I can really fill you in on everything. Some of the highlights though...
  • Went home for my niece's 5th birthday
  • Went on an AMAZING road trip from Philly to Austin, Texas and back

  • Searched North Philadelphia for the elusive "banger," eventually found said banger but it was not as much fun as the search had been (especially thanks to a Juan encounter haha)
  • Went to Diplo/Major Lazer concert after drinking two cans of FourLoco and had SOOO much fun - thought I remembered everything until a boy I apparently met called me the next day... I'm still not really sure why he called...
  • Went on such a good bike ride! We went to Kelly Drive and then into the city. It was so pretty and so empowering!

And that's how I got to today. Other things happened obviously but those are highlights that come to mind. I'll try to be better about blogging again.

Roaring 20s!

There aren't songs or words to describe how in love I am with my friends right now. Luckily there are some pictures...

The beautiful birthday girl

February Babies
'Giving It' to her/him

Scary Mask Bro

People We Don't Know
In honor of mustachio up there

This weekend was one of my favorites. Seriously February, thank you for all these birthdays! It's the greatest month of the year.

Jersey Shore, Mansion, Roaring 20s, Rave = Amazing! I had so much fun dancing - Temple parties need more dancing.

Now there are a million facebook pictures and every single one makes me crack up. I was literally crying from laughing as I looked at them. Randomly throughout the day I'll think of something that happened this weekend or a picture of someone with a mask on and just start giggling

Basically, I LOVE my friends. I love how much fun we have together. I love being young. I love dressing up (I'm pretty sure over half my facebook pictures are of me in costume). I love dancing with cute boys. I love all of it!

Name Games

Stars - Your Ex-Lover is Dead
They are coming June 3 if anyone wants to go with me! We can go see them and then hangout at my beautiful, adorable apartment (on the roof or roaming the streets of South Philly)

I noticed when we attempted the ABC game that there are patterns or connections between the names of guys I hook up with or like and the way they act/treat me. For instance in my experience...

Daves are super flirty and ask you out on dates, but are usually too flirty for anyone's good and don't usually stick around for second dates.
Wills call you back (sometimes it takes months though) and kind of linger around for a while.
Ryans are my tattooed rebel crushes and always seem to have girlfriends.
Gregs are tall black men, 2 for 3.
Charlie is actually a nickname for Satan (2 for 2) and they will, right when you think things are going well, publicly abandon you.
Kevins are creepy guys you makeout with just to makeout with someone, gross I know.
