My body and liver hates me

Oi. The past few weeks have been a whirlwind. Besides checking my email from my phone the past few weeks and watching Lost on Netflix streaming at night to go to sleep I haven't touched my laptop. To be honest, most nights I am pretty sure turning the laptop on was a huge feat in itself.

Last weekend I went out to a gay club on ladies night with my newly found gay cousin and her gf. It was awesome! Mostly because I am spending more time with my cousin since we had grown apart, but it seems our 'gayness' is bringing us back together. HAHA. I inform them tha in order to get me + dancing, you need to also factor in alcohol. Somewhere in between several vodka tonics and beer or two, I was dancing around like a fool. Too bad I got home around 330am and worked at 10am.

Quote of the night, in response to my lightweight in the drinking area: "Girl, I may not be a 90 lb girl, but I sure as hell do drink like one!"

I stumbled out of bed sometime around 9am to shower and go to work. I found some Vietnamese coffee in my fridge and nearly cried from happiness. Halfway through the bottle at work I finally read the label that said "Concetrated" on it, then realized I was supposed to mix it with ice. Turns out I had about 4 cups of it which equals about 12 expresso shots. Oh shit.

A few hours later I was running around the pharmacy like a crackhead. Zipping around like a freaking hummingbird. My equally hungover, but coffeeless coworker stared at me and said "Oh god, please stop running around, you're making me dizzy!!!"

Still wired from the coffee after work I went over to my friend's house to get 're-schooled' in beer pong. I haven't played that crap since college. Around 2 am I realized, shit, work at 8am. A friend drops me off, and the day goes on. This time I had the appropriate diluted amount of coffee and was still going strong for my coworker's house party.

I am pretty sure my liver is cursing me, and my nervous system wants to kill me with the overload of caffeine and alcohol, but it was good fun!

Somewhere in between all that in the week we also made two trips to disneyland and played house for my sister.

I am waiting for everything to hit me all at one and go into some insane sleep coma. Too old for this shit!

Vacations are amazing.

I just got back from vacation to visit some of my old college friends. It was much too short and I really wish I was still there. My best friend picked me up, we grabbed dinner, and then went back to her place to watch a movie and sleep.

Ah, some things never changed. I missed her, but I didn't realize how much. Sometimes the little things we used to do together is more fun than figuring out activities to do. We were so comfortable with each other that I could study in one corner and she could watch tv and/or read in the same room and just enjoyed each other's company. Even though it was kinda like ignoring each other, haha. I miss those days, but I do not miss my insane exam schedule/thesis writing.

Throughout the week we did a lot of things, and we even fit in a snowboarding trip. I laughed so much and had so much fun with my friends. It had been almost 2 years since I had seen them, but we just picked up where we left off. Making fun of each other, laughing til we cried, making random jokes, and just having fun no matter what we were doing!

When my best friend dropped me off at the airport and hugged me goodbye, I just wanted to hop back in the car and not go home. I missed my family and my puppy dog, but I just missed being there. The place I called my home for four years. I'm not gonna lie, I wanted to cry while I sat at the airport waiting for my flight.

I am still smiling just thinking about all the fun I had. I even got to meet some neices and nephews for the first time (the oldest is 10!) and bonded with them. I wish I could have spent more time with them. It made me sad when one asked 'Auntie can't you please just stay with us??' after only knowing me for 3 hours.

Vacation simply just does not last long enough!!
