“RETURNING TO LIFE AFTER BEING DEAD – When I am feeling dreary, annoyed and generally unimpressed by life, I imagine what it would be like to come back to this world for just a day after having been dead. I imagine how sentimental I would feel about the very things I once found stupid, hateful or mundane. Oh, there’s a light switch! I haven’t seen a light switch in so long! I didn’t realize how much I missed light switches! Oh! Oh! And look – the stairs up to our front porch are still completely cracked! Hello cracks! Let me get a good look at you. And there’s my neighbor, standing there, fantastically alive, just the same, still punctuating her sentences with you know what I’m saying? Why did that bother me? It’s so… endearing.” -Amy Krouse Rosenthal

What I won’t miss about college
1. Research of any kind
2. Moving every year
3. Looming deadlines
4. The constant lack of money
5. Not being taken seriously when attempting to buy alcohol
6. 8 am classes
7. The flakiness. So much flakiness.
8. The pressure to achieve and/or change the world, which ever comes first
9. Sunday nights. Why are they always so lonely?
10. The endless emails
What I will miss about college
1. Constantly being surrounded by peers
2. The lively discussions
3. Know-it-alls who actually know nothing
4. My big, beautiful desk
5. Malibu sunsets
6. Copious amounts of coffee
8. Scrappy living
9. Impromptu experiences. Oh the spontaneity!

Dear “500 Days of Summer” soundtrack,
I’ve always enjoyed listening to you. Music can really make or break a movie in my opinion!
Can I just find out about you already?! I’m loosing my mind. I guess patience is not my best attribute.
Seven weeks. Let me say it again: seven. weeks.
I’ll never stop loving you, ok?
Geez, you’re not progressing as quickly as I’d like. I should really get a move on!
Not sure what to do with you these days. Maybe a mullet?
Have fun in Cambodia, Vietnam and Seoul these next three week!
Dear song “Psalm 23”,
Obsessed with you. Look it up on Youtube, it’s by Reality San Francisco.
Have you been to the Getty Center? If you love art and architecture, this is the place for you. Plus, admission is FREE (besides parking). There were gorgeous paintings, sculptures, photographs, objects, etc. from all over the world, and the building itself is a masterpiece. The grounds are extensive, complete with gardens, waterfalls and panoramic views of L.A. (or as I’ve been calling it lately, La La Land). Really, friends, you should check it out if you’re in the area ;p^My friend Mike!^My friends studying the oil paintings like pros^The French furniture section was insane…can you say opulence much?!^Trying to be posh^Love the soft colors in this one!^Magazine covers, oh my!
