This post used to contain pictures, but due to new storage limitations from WordPress, I had to fix the problem and decided to create a new blog that works as an archive for all the posts from my two years in California. This full post can be found here.
I just paid for a ticket to In Flames/Demon Hunter in San Diego this Wednesday! Oh my god!! I can’t believe it took me like 7 years to finally see In Flames live. And they are from the same city as me… It’s gonna be so amazing, I can’t wait!
The only problem is that the concert starts at 6pm, and I don’t get off work until 6:30 normally. But I think I can get off a little earlier and I’ve already changed my dinner evening till tomorrow instead. Don’t know what to do though…
There are two more bands playing and I really hope they get on before Demon Hunter and In Flames. Concerts are always delayed, but I want to make sure that I get to see two of my favorite bands! And I can’t believe it only costs me $35!
I will get my ticket at the event, and I hope I will still get it even if I’m gonna be late, I will cross my fingers!
Another upcoming event of mine is probably Coachella! Yesterday I learned that Lizzie has a ticket with a car camping spot that she can’t use. A friend from Chalmers is going that same week so I asked my host parents this evening if I could go. They said yes! The only thing is that I have to work on Friday and Monday, and the festival is Friday April 19th to Sunday April 21th. Sunday, no problem, I will just get home in the middle of the night, and get up to work as usual and then sleep in the day. But on Friday it’s a little bit more difficult. They said that maybe I could get off work at 4pm instead of 6pm. I will probably miss one of the bands I really want to see, Of Monsters and Men. But what the heck. It will be awesome anyway!
I’ve never been to a camping festival before so this will definitely be a new experience. It’s one thing I didn’t have on my bucket list before, but now I’m so excited!
$300 for the whole thing and about $60 for a rental car. I think it’s okay!
I forgot to write about three things yesterday! First, I saw coyotes when we were going to the Griffith Observatory. It looked like they were posing when we took photos of them. Second, I’ve started a new registration plate game. I’m gonna write down every different state plate I see here in Cali. So far (since Saturday), I’ve seen 15 including California! I’ve even seen Alaska!! Third, when we just had parked in LA downtown yesterday we ran into four young people, two of them I recognized from au pair training school. How big are the odds of running into other au pairs in the middle of Los Angeles?!
This morning I was super tired and lately the boy has been very cranky in the mornings and I hate it. That’s the only thing I hate about my job right now. He refuses to listen to me, he gets angry with me for no reason almost every morning… It’s horrible. But when I was making lunch he was in a much better mood and said that he was a very forgiving person. Maybe that was not the word. Bu the easily change his mind anyway.
In the afternoon he is the cuddliest kid ever. He is like a new person. Today we wrote a wish list for them both on Dunkin’ Donuts. I’m going there on Wednesday to bring something back for them. I have to take the freeway to get there and I’m not allowed to have the kids in the car while I’m on the freeway so.
When the boy came down to say good night he gave me two drawings. He’s so cute (almost always)!
This is me and the boy. I am the one saying love and wearing big earrings. He is the one thinking about Lego Star Wars! Haha!
This is a gorilla. And he is super angry because someone stole all his bananas!
