so, i’m finally in! I’ve been moved in since Saturday. Amanda, Maggie, and Cliff came up to Los Feliz and really jumped in head first with helping me move. I had the goal to be done by 3pm…we were done by 2:30. Seriously, at 2:24 we were all just standing around my room like, now what? I love them so much! Saturday was a perfect day. The weather was amazing, my friends were amazing, Sex and the City was amazing! It was so cool! I loved seeing it at the Bridge. We had reserved seating in the Director’s Hall where they have waiters who will bring you what you want at your seat (for a ridiculous price). The movie was great. I don’t have as much of a connection to the characters as Amanda and Maggie (they cried…how cute!!) but I can’t say that my generation/viewing of society/social expectations haven’t been influenced by SATC. I still think SJP looks like a witch. Hocus Pocus didn’t help me a bit. Sunday I woke up in a bummer mood. For one, I had gotten home and stayed up until 3am unpacking the insanity that is my life. I haven’t made much progress though I’ve unpacked a crap load of things! Anyway, I think I was simply overcome by anxiety (much like the birthday blues) and doubt about what I’m doing with my life and had a very slow start to my day. I went to starbucks for some tea before mass, and when I got there was completely met by pomp and circumstance. I hadn’t realized that May 31st was the day 20 deacons were made priests! On June 1st I got to attend the first mass of a brand new priest! HOW AMAZING! St. Bernadette has a predominantly Black parish, so when I saw the predominantly white choir, i had to turn and ask the older woman behind me if there was something special going on. The chior was from Holy Trinity, and they were amazing! A monsignor sang with such feeling and intonation that I was very impressed and moved. The whole thing was great!! Afterwards I hung out with Denise for most of Sunday. We perused the Beverly Center for beautiful scarves (they’re my new thing) and belts from H&M, expensive shoes (for Geox) and a delicioius lunch from Souplantation (which is riight across from the Beverly center!) I can remember a time when I thought Souplanation was the lamest thing in the entire world! I couldn’t fathom pay $9 for a salad! Now that I eat veggies regularly, and have paid much more then $9 for a salad, I can do nothing but love the souplantation…even if it has the word plantation in the name. We also went to marshall’s where I got an amazing dress that I wore as a shirt today. you’ll love it. I have so much to blog, but i’m writing an IEP. I’m only blogging now because I’m sitting around watching CABLE!. more to come.
