Routine Excitement

August 05, 2009 | Published in | 3 comments

A lot of people my age often blog about feeling jaded and bored with life. I can't exactly exclude myself from that lot, unfortunately. However, sometimes when life hands you lemons, you grab the lemons and squeeze all the fucking juice out of them.

Having said that, I am feeling particularly excited for two reasons today:

1) I will be flying to San Diego via LA this coming 11th September. The date is not on purpose, I think, because orientation starts on the 16th. What better way to discover America than exploring the city filled with blonde woo girls in skinny jeans and soy chai latte drinkers! My mother is feeling particularly anxious because she fears not being able to eat at will. She may be right. I am an unabashed and oftentimes hypocritical victim of this Hollywood need to be svelte and vain.

1a) I was on americanapparel.net; this always gets me going. I am also very excited at being able to visit The Wasteland and LA flea markets without worrying about the weather like I used to back in London.

1b) I have grand plans to visit Boston and New York in December. I think I've watched enough Sex and the City to get my jakun* levels all revved up. Not to mention about all the things people have been telling me about outlet shopping outside NYC.

1bi)I also want to eat a hot dog from a roadside stall on a rainy day in NY. I don't care what people say about the abundance of Michelin starred restaurants in NY and how I must try this and that place. Cheap street food is always the way to go.

1c) I want to hit up Vegas and pull a Katy Perry a la "Waking Up In Vegas" - me + Vegas = $$$$$

2) Tomorrow marks the start of what I'm hoping will be a mad capped crazy weekend. Heh. Here's to turning 21.

*jakun - actually an aboriginal race of the Malay peninsula, but over the years this term has come to mean something to the effect of "village chump" i.e. someone who hasn't seen much of the world.
