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!

I’ve shared with you before about Boba tea here, but a few months ago when I was in Southern California I had SoCal bubble tea for the first time since March and it was heaven. Nowhere else can you find such a wide selection of flavors, so many fresh ingredients, so many ways to taylor your drink to the exact way you want it, or (best of all) the most amazing, soft, warm, perfect tapioca balls in the entire nation. Bubble tea in the Northeast is to bubble tea in L.A. as a cruddy pot of old coffee at a ho-hum car repair shop is to a hand made cappuccino with soy milk and brown sugar at a local cafe with live musicians — it’s just not even on the same level. I wish my sister could ship the stuff to me instantaneously on the East Coast… here’s to dreaming!
