I’ve been a bad blogger. In my defense, however, I’ve been busy – with work, social events, and my brother’s graduation last weekend in Santa Cruz! Here’s what I’ve been up to the last few weeks:
I’ve been spinning a lot lately. Today I’ll be spinning for 3 hours at the YAS-A-Thon to raise money for ThinkCure! so I have been spinning a bunch to get in shape for that. I’m also going to get spin certified (next weekend!) so I want to be in the zone for that. Post marathon, I have realized I don’t NEED to run so much, and I can incorporate more spin classes whenever I feel like it.
I LOVE this statue/plaque outside of the Ernst & Young building downtown. Gotta love big businesses who can laugh at their reputation!
I’ve been utilizing my apartment complex’s small gym for some morning weight work. I am really digging the Tone It Up workouts – and I especially love how they’re beach themed. The Costa Rica “Pura Vida” one is probably my fav so far.
I’ve been really lucky to get to go to several awesome events with the firm I’m working for this summer. Last week, I went to a silent auction and cocktail party put on by LAFLA – the Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles. It was held at the Japanese American Cultural Center – who knew it was this cute?
My dad and I being total tools:
Last weekend I was in Santa Cruz to see my little bro graduate from college. It was a fun trip – I’ll do a full post about it soon. Congrats, Reid!
I changed offices at work on Monday. Helloooo view of Dodger Stadium (way out there past the smog).
I have been listening to Yeezus non-stop since I downloaded it last weekend. It is that good. (Caveat: I am Team Kanye. Anything he touches basically turns to gold, IMHO). But surrriously, I thought I couldn’t like an album more than JT’s 20/20 Experience, and then Random Access Memories came out. And now Yeezus. (I’m also digging Bearly Legal, the new mash-up album from The White Panda).
On Friday, the firm I’m working for this summer had a golf tournament. I am awful at golf, but thankfully the tournament was “best ball” style and my team of four only HAD to count three of my strokes – and luckily I was able to sink 3 putts. We ended up finishing second in the tournament, at 3 under par, missing the championship by one stroke. Totally fine with me…because, you know, I’d feel a little uncomfy taking home a plaque when I am literally awful at golf. On the plus side, the partner on my team told me I “have a future in this game” and that “guys like girls who can play golf.” So I’ll try to work on that.
We played at Brookside Golf Course near the Rose Bowl. It was such a pretty day to be out there!
The rest of my weekend has been pretty chill – relaxing with friends, getting some work done, etc. Last night, after dragging my feet all day to go exercise, I left my house around 7 for what I thought would be a 4 miler. It turned out to be an awesome, relaxed 5.75er. I made pitstops at Vista Hermosa Park (one of my favorite spots in LA) and Echo Park Lake. Not too shabby.
Alright I’m out to spin my heart out! Happy Sunday!
Question: Yeezus…’Ye or Nay?
