These are a few of my favorite snapshots from the past month or so! Trader Joe's peonies, the Pacific Ocean on a Sunday drive with Matt, Vampire Weekend's new album (which has been on repeat since it came out... and how beautiful is that cover?), and some of the scenery on our drive from AZ to CA.
Matt and I drove to Arizona for the July 4th weekend. It was so great to be home with friends, doing the things I love, like playing board games with Amber and Steven, or eating my mom's homemade cooking, or watching HGTV on my parents' couch, or driving to Sonic whenever we want (did you know there's no Sonic in the LA area? tragic). Coming back to LA after a weekend like that gives me major homesick blues. It's hard to believe that my life is so separated from my friends and family. I know I've got a good thing going on over here, but a part of me just wants to step back where life and relationships are so easy.
Work is going well. I work full-time at a buying office, and on Saturdays I work at Madewell. I never mentioned this on here, but when I started at my full-time job, I was so scared that I wouldn't make any friends and that nobody would like me. Weeks went by, and I still felt as though I was on the outside. Nowadays, I finally feel as though I am a part of the team, and I no longer feel that anxiety and hatred for my introverted self. I still struggle with my introversion... but that's another story.
Signing off now, hopefully this won't be the last blog post in a month and a half like my last one was! I love documenting my life, and I know I should do it more, especially now that my blog has become more freeform than it once was.
