I survived Hell Week the 1st Edition

What a week! Rain, thunderstorms, strong winds! As if I needed any other reason to stay in bed all day.
Sadly, such laziness just wasn't an option. Three midterms, lunch dates, parties, & the local bars were calling my name. Begging me to drag myself out of the warmth and coziness of my bed & give my full attention.

The beginning of the week was a dark, cold blur. Cramming for the exams, making myself sick with doubt & anxiety only to find myself practically cart-wheeling out of class! Completely confident in what I had submitted.

On Thursday after a grueling 7 part test, as I was grabbing a drink at the cafe near campus, I ran into my Math teacher. Of course I inquired about my grade from Monday's exam & to my great surprise she congratulated me on receiving one of the top scores in the class! (Naturally, I was smiling ear to ear in class today :D)
When I got back home, Catey & her girlfriend Crystal came by to swoop me up for a delectable lunch at The Oinkster
A gruyère cheeseburger (and piggy fries to go). Crystal's adorable little sister also joined us for lunch. Isn't she precious?!?! She loves counting to three & touching Nala's nose. ♥ ♥ ♥
As the sun began to set Rene & BB made their way over to my house on the hill. The Jersey Shore finale was a snoozefest. The cast looked like they were ready for the season to be OVER. Likewise, in a sense, so were we. 
We stepped out to The Little Cave for drinks, good music, & free tacos! The taco guy was agro but the bartender was generous ;D

Needless to say I wasn't so feeling so hot at brunch with my friend Jane the next day. We ventured out of North East LA to Silver Lake for a scrumptious meal at Square One Dining (conveniently located near my school!)

The food was great, the service was speedy (no line!!), but mostly I enjoyed catching up with my pal. The two of us hadn't gotten together in what seemed like an eternity! Every single time we hang out I'm overcome with laughter. She's just so funny! And real! And I really hope we don't let a long time go by before we get together again.

Later that night I found myself drunk with joy & a house full of friends.

Saturday morning Felissa bribed me out of bed with a promise of brunch & we moseyed on over to Arcadia.
Felissa got a Brazilian blow-out & I flipped through an endless stack of gossip magazines.
2hrs later we were ready to go! Felissa's hair was looking fly & I was all caught up on the strange world of Brangelina. My patience paid off :D Brunch at Auntie Em's Kitchen was absolutely positively out of this world yummy. Like always.


After the food settled & we regained our strength, Felissa & I went over to Jason & Keely's to see Velasquez beat the crap put of Lesnar. Such a quick fight! T K O 
Finally, on Sunday, I got the lazy day I had been craving all week. Stayed in bed well past noon. Gabbed on the phone & caught up on my fave tv shows. Eventually though, my cave of a bedroom got boring. There's only so much Hulu I can take! Laundry turned into deciding to completely rearrange my entire wardrobe. 2 loads later and my entire closet of treasures was sprawled all over my bed. Do I break it down by colors? Do I divide the colors into sub catergories of like items? I kind of got lost & gave up. In the end I folded everything back up, hung everything back up, put it all away. Leaving the closet & dresser drawers looking only slightly neater than when I had started.....waste of time....

Until next time, I'll leave you with a drunken picture from last week. The shot is completely off centre. I can't tell who was leaning like the tower of Pisa, Rene (the photog) or me. Looks like I didn't do too great on focusing my eyes on the camera either. Ahahahha
