My weekend at home was short...but nice. Got to spend some QT with a lot of people. he has the same birthday as his dad!

oh farhad.

Our house isn't exactly at its full potential yet...but it's getting there. We just need to unpack the rest of the the boxes in the living room, actually set up our washer and dryer, and get new curtains. Other than that, it's pretty great. Here's pictures of the outside/views from the ferry haha. I'll put up pictures of the inside when it's all fixed up.

Now let me tell you what I have planned out for tomorrow. First thing I'm going to do is go to the store to get water and toothpaste. Then to the ARC because I haven't been there in close to 2 weeks and that is definitely a problem. While I'm at the ARC, I'll pick up my paycheck...which won't be as big as the recent ones since summer camps ended a long time ago...but it should still be enough to pay utility bills. After that, I'll come back and look for job on the island. There's a help wanted sign at the candy store I wanted to work at so maybe they'll hire me. Then I have to finish the little worksheet CHOC (Children's Hospital of Orange) sent me since volunteer orientation is tomorrow. I'm excited to work with the kids. It's a little far but I'm sure it'll be worth it. I should probably continuing studying for the GRE's tomorrow since I'm taking them in less than 2 weeks. Oh yea, I also need to buy a desk for under $50. No wait, under $35.

Oh shit I forgot to document my newest Kobe encounter in my last post. So I shall do it now. So I was working men's soccer practice last week and Kobe was in our training room yet again. Next thing I know he's walking out on the field with Ryan, one of our asst. basketball coaches, to get to the track. So I'm sitting there...watching them practice and helping them shag balls cause I'm so damn bored. I get up to get one and kick it back to one of the goals they're doing drills at. I turn back to walk toward my little golf cart and

Kobe says: "Niiice one."
Me: "Thaanks. :)"
Kobe: "Like Beckham."
Me: "Haha, yeaa right."
Kobe: "It was Beckham-esque."

Then I laugh, he laughes, and he's on his way. Later on, I have to go inside the training room to get a shark for the guys. I walk in, and he's sitting at one of the tables, getting ready to ice. This is when he calls me "Beckhams." Okay that's all. It was great.

Home Sweet Home

1) Balboa Island is perfect. We all have our own rooms. Our living room is huge even with the couches. Speaking of those damn couches, tell me why we (the people pictured below) were able to get those gigantic things plus our beds and everything else inside the house BY OURSELVES. It's probably cause we're amazing. We're thinking about starting our own business..themed movers. We'll dress up to a theme of your choice AND move your shit. Even better, Newport is just a ferry ride away.

we conquer damn near-impossible moving-in feats. comeseeus.

my not-yet-decorated room. but isn't it wonderful already? i also need to get a desk.

2) I came home yesterday for the weekend. It's works out cause soccer is away in Alabama this weekend so I don't have to work practice. Oh yea, my fingers are raw and my back is broken in 834890 places from taping ankles at the soccer tournament yesterday. BUT i made $45 from taping on top of the hourly rate we get paid to be there anyway. Just lovely. I was able to make Christina's going-away dinner. My hottie cousin is leaving for Santa Barbara next weekend.

all 10 of the kids on my dad's side. our grandpa would definitely be proud. :)
we used to shoot commericals and have spectacular fashion shows in our living rooms.

3) Today I get to see at least 2 of my ETCS girls and then Deepy's Bday BBQ in the afternoon. Happy 21st Birthday BRO! Now you can finally use your own I.D. Haha.

4) Dentist appointment tomorrow. I better not have any cavities. I don't know...I haven't exactly been flossing daily. I know. Unbelievable. I also finally get to see Ms. Brooklynn Grace Cole tomorrow. And S.B. I better see you today. Mmm YoSwirl.

More pictures later. I need to get ready.

don't try to change something that doesn't want to be changed. everything happens for a reason.

-last final and a 6-8 page paper due tomorrow. 1.5 pages done. 50% ready for final. how exciting.
-we're finally moving to balboa on wednesday. my own room. now THAT'S exciting.
-men's soccer is still undefeated and i love working with the team. probably cause it's soccer!
-i miss the family. saturday was candice and frank's anniversary. <3 jody made the women's club soccer team at cal!
-i've been eating like shit lately and it needs to stop. borderline high triglycerides is def. not the business. BUT my new purple asics should help.
-i also need to stop spending money like it grows on trees. rent is going to be a lot more starting NOW. maybe after season ends and i get a job on the island, i'll be able to spend to my heart's content. #1 on my list of things to buy list: beach cruiser.
-i love getting paid to tape ankles at soccer tournaments.
-being "president" for the sportsmed club is a lot more work than i thought it'd be and school hasn't even started yet.
-the best parts of summer so far = vegas, cabo (cantina), newport, corona del mar, la ventina's, and benihana's

pictures later.
