I don't have a whole lot to say this week as I am swamped with school work in preparation for finals. This time of the year is always stressful, as everything seems incredibly overwhelming, so it was nice to take a trip to LA this past weekend to surprise my brother for his 30th birthday. What I learned on the trip? If you ever contemplate bungee jumping, do it! What a rush! It was like living the recurring nightmare I have where I'm falling...and falling...and falling - except for a happy ending, where an elastic band happens to be strapped to me, in multiple places, and gracefully catches my fall.
