One year down...

...and one more to go!

I am officially halfway done with my first year of graduate school and I ended it with a bang! I applied for scholarships, ended with straight A's, and am DONE with papers (for now)! Through the literal sweat, blood, and tears that I worked through this past year, I am so ecstatic to be truly relaxing and enjoying the summer seeing family and friends. I am free again, guys! (Well, for another three months at least.) I was sure I had Post Traumatic Stress the day after my last class because I woke up with anxiety thinking that I had to do something: write a paper, study, go to internship, etc. It took a few days to finally sink in...I am DONE and do not have to go back to school or internship for the next three months! I am already seeing the change in attitude. I am so much more happy and carefree. I have even started going to the barre class I like on the regular; I go pretty much on a daily basis! I have many more friends to catch up with and I am taking full advantage of the next few months. Bring it summer!

First up, a celebratory LA trip with Trenton to celebrate my straight A's! We love to take the train and get lost, adventuring around LA, so that is exactly what we did! Was so fun walking around the city - it was a perfect day today for it. As always, we always stumble across new places to see and new things to do. I love the city of angels.

Obligatory Uno game. (I take it everywhere)
Union Station

Olvera Street

Los Angeles City Hall
Trent surprised me by taking me to the top of Los Angeles' City Hall building and the views were amazing. The building's interior was pretty legit too. I felt important just being in there. haha 

"I am an important person saying important things!" haha
I found a hidden door...
...that lead to nowhere.

Grand Central Market | I finally got the bag I've been wanting! 

As the day was getting cooler, we picked up food from Grand Central Market to eat on our train-ride home. We didn't play Uno on our way back because we were so tired from our adventures. I woke up with drool on Trenton's shirt and boba on my mind. What a great way to start the summer. Love you Bub.
