Retail Therapy

I graduate in a little over two months (eeeek!), but my last quarter starts next week, AND I have my comprehensive exam in exactly 30 days (double eeeek!).

So in honor of my rare downtime and my anticipated grueling last few months, I did some damage at the mall this past weekend. I hadn't shopped in so long-- it felt a bit weird. I was in one department store and the music was blaring SO loud that I left after 5 minutes. I felt like a mother. When I was younger and would go shopping with my mom, she'd always complain about the loud music and wait outside the store. I can totally relate now!! Am I getting old, or what?

BUT, I braved the loud music and found lots of cute dresses! It seems that dresses are now the norm instead of jeans, huh? RIP jeans.

It's been over a week since the Japan disaster occurred and I still find myself unable to tear away from the TV or the internet. It's so incredibly sad-- it's as if everything that could possibly go wrong did, no matter how prepared Japan was. And perhaps it's a reminder of the strength of mother nature and that we are not in control of the world.

Please pray and donate to the relief efforts. I donated last week and I wish I had read this post by a fellow blogger before donating. Ah well. I'm hoping my Red Cross donation will still benefit.

And finally, it's important to remember during this time to plan ahead and be prepared should a similar disaster like this hit at home. Living in California, which is considered an earthquake state, I realize how often we take for granted the days where nothing happens.

Christmas in March

I am like a little kid at Christmas today! I just bought tickets to the Josh Groban concert--I woke up early this morning, as they went on sale at 10 am. He will be coming to L.A. on August 17th. I'm super excited-- he has an amazing voice! He could sing about trash cans and it would still sound amazing, I'm sure. I saw him briefly a few years ago when he was inducted into the Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame, but sadly, he only sang a couple of songs.

Every Christmas, I play his 'Noel' album non-stop. What a voice! I'm counting down the days. Happy weekend everyone!
