i want to crawl into a cave and sleep for a week in the dark, away from people and hidden from the sun.

25 is going to be my year, i just know it... there are so many things i want and plan to do before my next birthday...

first step is to take better care of my body. while i have made tremendously positive changes in my life within the past year, i have such a long ways to go and everything starts with baby steps, right?

i just got back from LA about an hour ago, and what a whirlwind my trip was.

our magazine's oscars party was a success, and the food was amazing. wow wow wow, i can't even begin to describe the amazing quality of the delicious food at the event. like almost every other person at the event, i ate until i was about to explode, and enjoyed every damn bite of it. the only part of the party i disliked is schmoozing, i fucking hate doing that shit. i did get used to it about an hour or two, but man- talk about awkward.

after the event, some of my colleagues and i went to some boring hotel called the l'hermitage and had some drinks at the lobby. i was a bit excited because i got to meet and hang out with a very well respected chef who has critically acclaimed restaurants nationwide. he's also a bit of a famous tv food personality, so i had a surreal moment while sitting next to him and sharing a dish of wasabi-peas as we all had a few drinks and conversation.

the most surreal part of the night was the very ending. so, the dj that was hired at my work event got my coworker and i onto the list at hyde, which i guess is one of the current hotspots of LA. my coworker, who is a beautiful young woman and one of the most sincerest and endearing people i've ever worked it, go to hyde and get in no problem. i was surprised at how tiny this place was, like more of a small rectangular box where you can pretty much see every person in the club. as soon as we get in, my celeb-radar goes crazy because i start recognizing a few people here and there.

let's just say, a very well known actor/comedian/bff to michael jackson hit on my coworker, and the three of us were chilling all night. i also had soo many other random celebs, and couldn't believe my luck that my first night in LA was filled with such star sightings.

LA itself seems a bit dull to me, there's no energy anywhere. i think it's because i stayed in beverly hills, and everything is just so plain and vanilla there. there's absolutely no culture in beverly hills except for money, it's all about the green and flashing it in any way possible. i think i'd like to go visit LA again and maybe do some more interesting stuff, like check out other neighborhoods that have a bit more flavor.

the bad thing about my trip is i didn't take any pictures until wed, when my coworker and i had some downtime before our flight. she rented a convertible volks-wagon beatle so we were able to drive around with the top down today. this was an extra special treat for me because it's always been a dream of mine to drive across the country in a mini-cooper convertible.

ok, i'm off to bed. i have to go into the office tom, blah.

how is it already past midnight? wow...

i've been in front of my computer for the past two and a half hours, listening to one song on repeat:

Stevie Wonder- Never Dreamed You'd Leave in Summer

when did valentines day become a holiday?? what, are they going to stop delivering the mail on feb 14 as well?

i crashed at my friend's apt last night in chinatown, after she took me to dinner at ed's lobster bar (fucking yum!) on lafayette.i've been there before, and had the lobster pot pie again and it was damn good. well, i woke up this morning at 6, rode a cab to astoria, then showered and left for work. i briefly watched the today show for a few minutes, and saw meredith viera interviewing this political advisor for hillary clinton. now, when his live feed started working, the first thing he said to meredith was, "happy valentines day!" i couldn't believe this was actually happening on national tv. wtf? why the hell would you wish someone a happy valentines day when you're a political advisor and you're on the today show? and then meredith replied with some shit like, "thanks you, too!"

then i get to work and all throughout the day, people are "wishing me a happy valentines day." i'm pretty sure i would think this way even if it had a boyfriend, but to wish someone a happy valentines day is just dumb. if you're not in the 3rd grade and distributing cheap valentines day cards with those nasty heart shaped candy, i just don't think it's appropriate.

blah, i'm just ranting.

today feels like the first day in weeks where i've come home before midnight and i'm doing absolutely nothing. ahhh, sure feels nice. i have a stack of magazines with my name on it.

i am humbled by my friends and loved ones around me, and know that you know- things aren't so bad sometimes. i wasn't going to have a birthday dinner today, but my friends convinced me to at least do something and i'm so glad i did. we ended up going to Bon Chon.

i just came back from Trade Fair, my local 24-hour supermarket by my apartment here in astoria.

as i was in line, looking at my 4 items sitting on the conveyor belt between two blue dividers, i thought about what my friday nights have become: standing in line at the supermarket at midnight, waiting to purchase two bottles of drano max, a ham and swiss sandwich and pink lemonade crystal light.

damn, i need some new hobbies.
