Chained to the Rhythm

Needless to say if you’ve followed this blog for as long as I’ve had it, you might have noticed that I have a fondness for attending concerts. It often surprises a lot of people though to learn that I didn’t attend my first concert until I left home for college (aka around the same time…

American Gods by Neil Gaiman

Rating: 4.5/5 Stars Genre: Fiction, Fantasy The TL;DR: This book takes quite a bit to get into (especially if you haven’t read any Neil Gaiman before) but it is incredibly worth it. I read the first 300 pages over the span of a few months and then read the last 200 pages nonstop in a couple hours. “I…

Love Letters of a Bookseller

For the past two quarters (6 months), I’ve been working at the UCSD Bookstore. When I was hired in December 2016, I was trained as a cashier and have been manning many a register from the absolute dead weeks of winter break to text book rush in the first week of Winter and Spring quarter….

How to Be a Human Being 04.18.17

The month of April was a little insane for me, to put it mildly. A really, really good kind of insane. At the beginning of the month my sorority sister Tiff, who I had never really talked to individually/outside of chapter events, made a post about wanting to see Glass Animals because they’re one of…

Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson

Rating: 5/5 Stars Genre: Young Adult, Romance The TL;DR: This is one of my favorite YA books of all time. It got me through the end of not just one but a few very close friendships. It’s lighthearted, warming, and an incredibly good exercise in moving on. If you’ve ever felt like you’ve grown apart from…

The Death of a Bachelor 03.26.17

I have been going out of my mind all winter quarter looking forward to this concert (mostly because this winter quarter SUCKED but that’s a different story). I must say I have to start this post off with the bad news so I can get it off my chest. I was really excited for this concert…

Madame Curie

Jennifer Steinkamp, (2011); seven-channel, synchronized projection. The Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego has truly expanded my appreciation for contemporary art. The downtown museum space is really small (about two large rooms) but they always seem to have some big art installation there. The Jennifer Steinkamp is the 3rd large, full room exhibit I’ve seen…

Winter Blues

I just finished my last class of winter quarter and I feel like I can finally breathe a sigh of relief. Winter is always the hardest for me, I’ve come to realize. I’m trying to remember though that good things rolled around in the spring, that the downward spiral doesn’t last forever. I feel like…

Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson

Rating: 3.5/5 Stars Genre: Young Adult, Romance The TL;DR: It was cute. You can definitely tell this is one of Matson’s first books and as such has some faults but overall, adorable story/really fun, light easy ready. “The best discoveries always happened to the people who weren’t looking for them.” Ever since I read Since You’ve…

An-nyŏng-ha-se-yo!

I’ve written a post before about my Tyler Joseph outfit (which you have probably seen way too much of on this blog), but this whole time I’ve definitely also had Josh Dun outfits. In fact, the “I want to believe” muscle tank/leather leggings Josh look that Farrah wore for Halloween/the concert are mine (lol). I’ve had…

EMØTIØNAL RØADSHØW Ø2.16.17

(cover photo is me, Chase, and Farrah @ Harbor House a 24 diner in my hometown after the show) So, do you remember way back when 7 months ago when I saw twenty one pilots and was freaking out? Well I’m mental and literally only a week after seeing it was was being my normal,…
