finally, i can update. i have had a great amount of fun, but the last week has also been a lot of work.

the weekend with aaron was super fun — we ate a lot, we hung out and drank together, we shopped and walked around the city. he met some of my closest friends finally, which was super awesome. they made him feel welcome and he loved sf so much that he is actually considering moving here! he said he will be up at the beginning of june right after his birthday. it will be perfect since it will be super sunny — it rained all weekend when he was here and that was a bit of a buzzkill, but we still had fun! my friends can’t wait until he comes back.
and as much as i had fun all weekend, i started school bright and early on monday morning. i spent 13 HOURS at school on monday. 13! it was insane. and i was one of the more organized editors. but things are shaping up quite nicely and i’m super stoked about manning the page. the first issue is going to kind of suck, but i’m pretty sure that all the future issues are going to be on point and really awesome. i will try to post the pages if i can — the designer for the paper, erika, is working really hard to make them look amazing.
other than that, school is looking like just another semester. my homework doesn’t seem too hard, my teachers seem like they’re trying to be intimidating in all the wrong kinds of ways and i’m already bored. but i only spent $80 on books this semester [that’s such a record, its ridiculous], so not a lot of reading is always good.
i’m finally having a chill night after a hectic week — being up at 6am and then going to bed after 1 every night for 5 nights is not exactly heaven. i can’t sleep in tomorrow, either — i want to make breakfast, go to the gym, go around the city, write people and catch up on life after i’ve been living in a hole for a week. i think fridays are going to be reserved strictly for getting inspired. i mean, you wanna be inspired always, don’t you? DON’T YOU?
also, i’m stoked on literary journalism.
desiree is awesome!

Daniella just asked me to be city page editor.
Oh my god, I don’t know what to say.

[for those of you that don’t know, i’m a journalism major at SFSU. i’ve worked with major newspapers over the last year and have gotten things published, but this semester i am working for the school newspaper. i know the editor-in-chief, daniella, and she and i haven’t talked seriously in some time. she asked me to be part of the new city page that is being put on the paper this semester, largely because she believes i’m a good writer. though the details weren’t really given to me, the original city page editor, justin, called me and we talked about some ideas. he liked what i had to say, but i didn’t know that two days later i would be given his position! i really don’t know whether i should take it or not.]

[edit]: I accepted!
