You know it's time to write a blog post when people on twitter start begging you.
So thank you, "@KT_KIT_KAT ", because I was literally just sitting here, thinking "man, I should really write a blog post", and then seconds later I got your @ reply. So here I am, writing a post for you.
It's really nice to know I am missed, actually. It's really easy for blogging to just slip my mind, and I'M the one who writes it. So to know that when I'm not writing, you lovely blog readers notice... that means a lot.
Let's see, what did I even write about last...
Oh wow. Gas station wedding photos. That was a long time ago. I'm so sorry, blog-world.
Since then, I have done a lot of stuff. Luke and I have been scrambling to finish the next ALL CAPS album and brainstorm new inventive ways to market it, I did a huge shoot with Night Zero that included something like 80 photos taken in one day, which you can see in the current storyline at www.NightZero.com. Season 6 of LOST started up, and I became 1/4 of a episode discussion blog overe here (which may also be responsible for my lack of blogging... trying to sound intelligent 1-2 times a week on this new blog is exhausting xD).
And I went to Mexico!
I had this nagging feeling the entire time I was in Puerto Vallarta last week that I should have been pulling out my laptop each morning or night and typing up summaries of my trip, but I just didn't. For the last 3-4 years that I have had a laptop, I have always been that girl who pulls it out on vacation, hunting for wifi so I can plug in and see what's going on/what I missed on the Internet, and this time I just didn't do that. I just didn't care. For 6 days, I took a much needed, much appreciated Internet sabbatical in which I only checked my e-mail two times, for a total of about 5 minutes, just to make sure I wasn't missing anything important that was school or job related. And it felt so, so awesome.
So anyway, now I am back home and I didn't record any of the trip. I had a wonderful time, with Luke, my parents, my uncle Dale, my parents family friends Mark and Carol, their kids Carrie and Aaron, and Aaron's girlfriend Chrysta. We spent a lot of time on the beach, playing in the ocean (in the huge waves!), taking taxis and questionable buses into town, eating different Mexican foods and buying chicklets from adorable children. Luke and I intended do do some ALL CAPS stuff while we were together but ended up just putting together our final track list while swimming in a pool, and making a couple half-hearted videos. But I don't think that's a bad thing at all - we both work really hard, and just getting to have a vacation and spend time together was nice.
Now I'm home, and I'm back in the reality of my part time job and Senior Year Of College (scary and busy and complicated). I have at least two handfuls of projects, assignments and papers to sort out, I have to figure out next quarters classes and get my internship with the HPA lined up, and the ALL CAPS album art and tshirt design contest ends Monday. My friends from WWU are coming down to film a music video with Eia and I this weekend, and Sunday I have to spend another Valentine's day alone.
And by "alone", I mean at the bar with Eia, because she and I have shared the last 3 Valentine's days together. Last year we went on a shopping spree (credit cards > boyfriends?) and the year before we watched movies and ate chocolate and snuggled on the couch. This year we're both over 21 so we're going to REALLY spend this holiday right.
This is what happens when your boyfriend lives far away. Or in Eia's case, is nonexistent.
