The following events did not necessarily happen in the order that they appear. This is just the order in which I thought of them.
June was an interesting month. A week after my grandma passed away I had my 24th birthday. It wasn’t a big deal, but I went to lunch with a friend and overall it was a pretty good day. 24 isn’t a really important birthday so there isn’t really much to say about it. During the summer I took a few fun little trips. A few of us went down to Las Vegas to collect the ‘Tart Cards’ for a friend’s art project. It was a pretty fun trip. We drove down one afternoon, walked the strip until about 3 am, then we organized the cards in the spare suitcase we brought and headed home in the morning. No pictures will be provided from that trip and I don’t think I need to explain why. What happens in Vegas… Well, you know the rest.
I went to a Bee’s baseball game. It was really fun! I didn’t think that it would be, but it was a blast! We went with the chiropractic association so it was great seeing some of my parent’s friends that I haven’t seen in a while, plus my dad actually caught a stray ball that flew up into our section! He was so excited! Truth be told, I just cowered and hoped I wouldn’t get hit or in any way be involved in the situation.
We went to stadium of fire. It was pretty cool! I couldn’t have cared less about the Jonas Brothers (sorry to any fans out there), but let’s be honest, we all go for the fireworks anyway. I thought it was interesting though. There were a plethora of tween girls there to see the concert and it was strangely reminiscent of an Elvis concert or a Beatles concert where the women were so excited and worked up that they would faint and the screaming was so intense that no one there had eardrums left by the end. Honestly, if I couldn’t hear the music (because it wasn’t nearly the same caliber of one of the other mentioned artists) I would have thought it was something along those lines… Like I said, I went for the fireworks though, and apparently I ended up on TV! I hope I looked ok.
I went to an ABBA recreation concert. It was really quite good! I still need to get the pictures from my mom and my cousin Lauren. They got the best pictures so sadly there are none here.
The county fair was an experience as it is every year. I learned how to make pottery though and that was awesome! I made a vase that is so cute! I think it has great character. How about you?
Most recently I went to California. It was a really nice trip. Mostly it was just to chill out, but also I had the opportunity to visit Hearst Castle. It was AMAZING!!! I loved it! Seriously, he would be the friend to have. Get invited to all kinds of events and not have any of the bills. Sounds like a winning plan to me! I mean really, this guy had real Roman and Egyptian artifacts shipped to his California home just because he liked them and he could. That is an intense amount of money.
Now I’m just working pretty much on the State fair that started this week. It’s off and running so now it’s just a matter of working some really long days.
Also, the haunted house is open now weekends. It’s going pretty well and I’m totally excited for the season! Of course, you should all come see the show. I’ll even be playing in the show when it starts getting busier. I’d give it a few weeks. Maybe until the beginning of October. Then come see me! Anyway, now you’re all caught up on my life… I think. I could have forgotten something, but I don’t think so. If I did, feel free to contact me and ask.
