I’m basically going to spend the next few posts detailing fun activities.
Anyway, I headed over to The Last Bookstore in LA a couple days ago to just check it out. The Last Bookstore is…what do you know, a bookstore :-). It was named The Last Bookstore rather ironically, since at the time of its creation there were plenty of bookstores in LA.
However, now that they are all closing down, it may well actually be the last bookstore in LA.
Like what even. Just the definition of hipster.
Even more hipster. So much hipster.
She bought like 50 bajillion books, and I didn’t buy any. So now I get to read hers without spending money. Which is excellent.
I went some time afterwards with another friend to a cute little tea shop later in the day.
Tea shops are something I have discovered in Pasadena, and they are WONDERFUL. Expensive. But worth it, in my opinion. We shared between three people two teas, one this lovely peach jasmine flowering tea and one an oolong chai. I love flowering teas, because they are beautiful, and the flavored ones are absolutely delicious. And I’m generally not crazy about fruty tea. And I just love chai, because I love spice and it’s spicy.
They also had these cute little sandwiches and scones which were suprisingly filling.
It was all great until I got home and discovered the chai actually had a ton of caffiene (and I don’t drink caffiene much/at all so I’ve very not-desensitized) and stayed up all night. So now, here I am, waiting for programs to run and writing this!
Now, based on the title you may be wondering what kind of story this will be. As you will soon find out, it’s a story of adventure born out of the pure, dark chaos that fills the minds of sleep deprived Caltech undergrads.
I’m starting a new miniseries on the blog – Film Club! Each episode, I’ll share a short clip from a popular piece of media, and then completely dissect and overanalyze it, because let’s face it, I’m doing it in my head already anyway. You say “buzzkill.” I say “science.” We’ll kick things off with a clip from Gravity Falls I discussed a bit in my previous post: Season 2 Episode 12, A Tale of Two Stans. If somehow you haven’t watched this show yet (?!)… spoilers incoming!
It’s crazy to think that I began applying to college almost three years ago. I still remember spending hours looking at college websites, admissions blogs and reddit pages to try to get a sense of what college is ACTUALLY like. To help you get through these stressful times, here are a few tips that I wish I had listened to. Hopefully, these will ease your worries and maybe even make the process more enjoyable!?
