For those of you without a phone, car, or Facebook, I have decided to attend UCLA School of Law, Class of 2011. They pretty much matched my scholarship from USC, which made the decision incredibly easy. It’s a better school, better location, and has an entertainment program that easily rivals USC. I’m really excited to live in Westwood, and expect you all to come visit while I’m there. I’ll post more as I figure it out, but I don’t plan on looking for apartments until July, so there won’t be much until then.
Last weekend was graduation and I ended up going out far too often. I’m now a few hundred dollars poorer, but it was worth it. The celebrations began on Thursday with the first annual Lavender Graduation. Jose and Angel both participated, and it was infinitely more fun than Saturday’s festivities. I slept through the ceremonies on Saturday, but made it to Josangel’s lunch. Afterwards we went to the Greenbelt and relaxed for a few hours, before heading back to campus for the university-wide commencement.My friend Jocelyn invited me to the roof of Dobie to watch the fireworks, and the view was spectacular.Looking down on the tower,and the rest of Austin, was a great ending to my college experience.
My phone also broke this weekend, leaving me feeling more alone than ever before. I’m going to send it off tomorrow, and then wait five-to-seven business days before my life returns to normal. In the meantime, my temporary number will be 832-385-9339. I should have that phone in tomorrow or the next day, and would love for you to call me. I’m in withdrawal.
I also started watching Sex and the City this week. I’ve seen a lot of the episodes over the years, but the completist in me wants to start from the beginning. I’m through most of season one, and it’s decent. I like the characters, but it’s obvious that the show was in its infancy. Carrie breaks the fourth wall frequently, and most of the episodes are stand alone. It’s far different from the multi-episode arcs of the later seasons, which were superior from what I remember. All of the Big stuff is good, but that’s only because it was before he became a terrible person. The four main ladies are great, and I was surprised by how quickly they developed into their characters. It’s certainly not among my favorite shows, but it’s tightly written and usually entertaining. I find it funny that Darren Star (he of 90210 and Melrose hackdom) created the show, only to stop writing after a few episodes. The real show runner was Michael Patrick King, and I’m excited for the later seasons of the show when his influence was more pronounced.
Also, Happy Birthday Katherine!!
