destination graduation

calitown

Today I fly out to Cali with my family for my twin sister‘s graduation. It’s super weird because she’s two minutes younger than me and yet she’ll be a college graduate before I am. I guess she deserves it though, after slaving away at Caltech for four years. Our next few days should look a little like this:

Wednesday 6/11 — Leave Albany at 6am (agggggggg!) headed for Southern California

Thursday 6/12 — Turn 22 and celebrate at Disneyland

Friday 6/13 — Watch my little sister (:P) graduate from college

Saturday 6/14 — Fly back to New York

Sunday 6/15 — Pray we make it back in time for my graduation!

Will it be a little cuckoo? Of course. But I am so glad that I am making this trip with my awesome family. We always have a fantastic time, no matter what in the world we are doing, and I think this whirl-wind adventure will be one for the books!

bon voyage!

Tomorrow I fly to California to visit my twin sister, Julia! I am so super duper excited to see her, you have no idea. Between searching for internships (not so promising, very promising!!!), killing myself with clubs (Russian, Russian, more Russian, more Russian, Culinary, more Culinary, Catholic Student Association, Colleges Against Cancer, more CACU for Israel), killing myself with classes (not enough hours in the day, stress & lack of sleep, ), traveling all over the place (NY, NY again, DC), getting sick, lots of snow, lots of ups and lots of down down downs, this term has been a killer one. But somehow we made it!! While I am doubtful that a single week will be long enough to fully recover from these last 10, I already know how I want to spend my 168 precious hours of vacation:

– snuggling with my twin

– basking in the beautiful California sun

– running outside

reading books for fun

making collages

– watching reruns of the Bachelor

– sleeping

– practicing my Russian

– shopping!

– getting my nails done

– getting a tan

– watching the latest season of Suits

– exploring Pasadena

– eating nice meals

going to Disneyland

– getting a massage

– watching all past Mad Men episodes

– catching up with my twinny

– NOT thinking about school or work!!

 

While I am typically disinclined to put blogging on hold for a week (because I genuinely love it with all of my heart), I know my mother would yell at me if I didn’t do everything in my power to not do anything this week and truly take it as a vacation. So, although I won’t be posting anything during the next week, you can still follow me on Twitter or Instagram or Pinterest if you have separation anxiety! Please have the best vacation, beautiful blog-lovers, and keep me updated on all of your spring break plans! XOXO

pi day

Seeing that it is Pi Day (3/14) and a Thursday, I thought it would only be fitting to combine my bizarre love 0f math with a little #tbt (throwback Thursday) loving. I hope you enjoy this pic of me rocking a Pi shirt while at Disneyland with my twin sister last year! (I am visiting her again in nine days!! Eek!)
