Pad Thai.

Ritten House Square is quickly becoming one of my favorite places to eat lunch. Especially when that lunch consists of pad thai and the company of the wonderful KB. We both made a promise to hang out more this summer in Philly and I'm pretty excited about that.
On a different note, I'm going home to Harrisburg either tonight or tomorrow morning. I am beyond excited!

To Do...

I start my first day of summer session in about 3 hours... I wouldn't say I'm exactly thrilled to be taking the class, especially over the summer, but I know I need too. And if nothing else, at least I know I'll be reading this summer... In the meantime, I've decided I need to do some more things for myself, such as:
1) Wake up and attend every single class.
2) Go grocery shopping more often, even if it's just browsing...
3) Make more meals, especially dinners.
4) For god's sake, stop putting off laundry.
5) Return library books.
6) Get lost in the Paley Stacks Art section.
7) Get some guts and ride my bike off campus.
8) Sit in Rittenhouse.
9) Draw more. Especially the city and from observation.
10) Call and check on internship...
11) Find a job/apply to other places.
12) See if I can use the Tyler printmaking studio over the summer.
13) Get lost inside the PMA.
14) Visit Mike and Trey.
15) Find a subletter.

Two Decades Later...

So I still think I'm trying to wrap my head around the fact that I have been alive for 7305 consecutive days on this planet. Leap years included. And I can't help but think about how today seems completely insane as far as growing up. I don't feel older... but who knows, I still have 364.5 more to change my mind and blog about.

26 Years and Counting...

This is a day late, but yesterday my parents celebrated their
26th wedding anniversary!
I am beyond proud of them and everything they have done together. Building a business. Working hard everyday. And putting up with all Mike, Laur, and my shenanigans. I seriously couldn't ask for better role models or better parents. And to show my appreciation I included two pages from a book that my 8th grade self had to make in art class at Holy Name. And while I'd like to think my vocabulary and grammatical skills have improved in 7 years, the overall message still holds very true.

Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow...

So cutting my own hair might not have been the smartest idea I've ever had. Actually, in the scheme of things it doesn't really rank on my "why did I just do that?" list either... but it does make honorable mention.
Right side.
Aka: The side with a million bald spots.
Left Side.
Aka: The horseshoe side.
Back View.
(This doesn't have a nickname because there aren't bald spots... surprisingly. But it is super uneven; you just can't tell from the picture.)
-Hopefully Steve Sudia can work wonders and fix it. But I'm pretty sure we might just end up shaving it. And this may sound stupid, but the only thing I'm really worried about is the possibility of sunburn.

I dont wanna miss a single thing ya do....

Equality Forum

Sunday Liz, Don, and I headed over to Northern Liberties for Equality Forum's Sunday Out! event, which marks the end of the weeklong festival advocating LGBTQ awareness in Philly.
(I got soooo sunburnt. Not fun.)
The Equality Forum is a weeklong event that showcases conferences, meetings, discussions, question and answer sessions, meet and greets, film screenings, seminars about health and safety, and a variety of other events pertaining to LGBT issues. To learn more check it out here.
We had breakfast at Darlings.
And I had almost forgotten how much I missed omelets.
We ran into Sarah Scholl and her friend Rachel at the commitment renewal of vows. And Mike and Joe and some other Drexel friends over at the stage with bands.
Anthony Rapp from Rent was a celebrity guest, and he sang a few songs with the Philadelphia Gay Men's Chorus that was a dream come true for Sarah.
