100.

It’s my 100th post! Hot damn that sounds like so few and so many at the same time. I’m close to reaching my personal goal of consistently blogging for one year– only a month and a half away!

For my 100th post I decided to make a list of 100 reasons why I like blogging.

Jk.

I can only think of 2.

Anyway, I’m going to be honest here, I have been seriously struggling to post these days. Is there such thing as a blogging dry spell? Like I mentioned in this post, I feel a bit creatively drained these days, which makes it hard to…. make. Tina did NOT make it. My internship with Oh Joy will be ending in mid-June, though, so hopefully I’ll have more DIY content coming soon. 🙂

I really wanted to make some sort of list of 100 but I’d bore myself, so here’s 5 things I’m really obsessed with these days:

1) Keebler Coconut Dreams. EVERYONE. THESE TASTE (and look almost) EXACTLY LIKE SAMOAS. Including the same number of calories (sorry). I swear you the average person will not notice the difference. Find them at your local supermarket instead of rationing your Girl Scout cookies throughout the year.

2) Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Cream. I really hate applying lotion on anywhere but my face. Like, hate it as much as most guys do. But this stuff is tolerable to me (it’s not super sticky or smelly), which is saying a lot. PS- ‘Twas a gift– there’s no way in hell I’d spend $48 on 1.6oz of something I only tolerate. -_-

3) Reading. I finished 6 books from my list in the past 10 days. I’m exhausted because I’m sleeping so late err’ night but I cannot stop. I will not stop (#cantstopwontstop). I just finished Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn and it was such a page-turner. Read it before the movie comes out in October!

4) Disneyland. I don’t understand people who don’t understand why I like Disneyland. These people have clearly not gone enough and/or have gone with the wrong people. IT IS MAGICAL. Let’s all forget about how they raised their prices last week, and focus instead on how I bought my pass right BEFORE the price hike (actually they’re not even selling the pass I purchased as an option anymore!). See? Magical timing. I’m going for the 4th time this Sunday (in 7 weeks) but I’m still excited.

FUN: Animation Academy (drawing class) at CA Adventures.

5) Athletic shoes. Okay so this is a bit of a stretch but I HAVE been spending a lot of time looking at REAL shoes online these days. Like… not Keds (elementary school), Sketchers (middle school), Chuck Taylors (high school/college), Toms (post-college), but…… NIKES. I know, right? It’s like a whole new frickin’ world and language I know nothing about. Flyknit-lunar-TR-free-5.0-what? I’m only looking because I can’t remember the last time I owned a proper pair of shoes, and you know… buying new shoes will motivate me to work out more, isn’t that how it works? I may or may not have ordered these Nike Flyknit Lunar2 DCs below…. did I say that right? PS- Is it possible for running shoes to be cute?

 The End.

Disney Magic

Once upon a time, I had an annual pass to Disneyland/CA Adventures. I renewed that pass for a couple years. And then it became unaffordable.

The end. I know, sad story. But seriously, the passes now range from $279-$669 (and the $279 pass we all know is damn sucky), and the rates keep going up.

SO. This past Sunday was a SPECIAL day because my friend David, employee of Disney, signed me (+ some friends) in for free. My first time in several years… Hooray!

Radiator Springs was such a cool ride…!

We went after church around 1pm and stayed ’til 10pm. It was such a perfect day– beautiful weather, empty-ish parks, minimal waiting-in-lines, and good food. I got to experience Cars Land and watch World of Color, both for the first time. Mind blown x 2. Disneyland is so magical!! It really never, ever gets old.

Okay, seriously though, I’m considering buying another annual pass. I didn’t realize how much I missed D-land until I was there, and I feel like my life has been all work and no play these days (albeit a lot of “fun” work…). Was it a sign that my tax return was sitting in my checking account when I checked it online this morning? WAS IT? IS IT??

We shall seee…
