Hey WordPress, it’s been a while. How’s it going?
My temp job at the Playhouse came to an end at the end of July, so I’m back burgering full time again. Money has been decent and my Counter family is as happily dysfunctional as ever. Although I don’t think I want to waitress too much longer; I love serving and will be sad to see that part of my life eventually come to a close. Food makes people so happy and I get to meet hundreds of new people everyday, as well as catch up with my regulars.
I turned 23 in a drunken blaze of glory on the 2nd. Tay and I went snorkeling with the leopard sharks in La Jolla Cove, took a food tour of Little Italy, then everyone I love came out to celebrate Shore Club style. Every year I have a mini panic attack, noting the passage of time with the addition of a new candle on my cake. I’m not afraid of aging, I’m afraid of this beautiful life coming to an end one day.
That being said- I’m deciding to make this year my bitch. I’ve been running and have officially signed up for my first ever 5k run on October 5th. I’ve been reading more than ever this summer and finally got my dad’s old guitar re-strung to try and teach myself. I miss playing piano and having music be a constant in my life. Progress is good, summer is great and I am a happy Irish girl.
Taylor is undoubtedly the nicest person I have ever met and next month marks 2 1/2 years of us being together. Time goes by so fast and I am honestly happier each day than the next. It’s funny how you can think you know what love feels like and believe it’s there, but then when you’re actually in it, smiling so hard it hurts and taking mental pictures every possible second, it’s a whole different thing. I have never been so happy being around another person and I know this will continue for a long time to come.
Ricky moved out, he will be missed. Our spunky Egyptian roommate is headed to Med school in the caribbean, we made sure to send him out in style. 2 new roommates are moving into the house come September, more shenanigans to follow.
I have been accepted to volunteer/help coordinate the Tedx conference being held in San Diego in December. Excited for the opportunity and hopefully some new ones on the rise as well, first volunteer meeting in September. The theme is “re-think”, hoping to catch some powerful speakers throughout the day.
So there you have it internet, life is glorious. Hopefully I’ll be back to write sooner rather than later.
