Apparently I am the least responsible person, ever. Second Monday night in a row without sleep; got home at 9:30 this morning. I won’t bore you with the details of my evening but I don’t even know what to do with myself right now. I am exhausted, totally brain dead, and confused as hell. I have to write my take home exam (4-5 pages on ‘What is Zen Art?’ – what kind of broad bullshit is that?), and study for my African Art final and my Target Practice final. I’m so tired I can barely keep my eyes uncrossed, I can’t even deal with everything else right now. Will process the past 24 hours… later.

I just have to say, I love living here – being less than ten minutes away from a dozen beautiful lakeside beaches is just unbeatable. I can’t believe summer is almost over…

First final exam tomorrow – Buddhist Art in Japan (607-Present)

Well another SeaFair weekend has come to a close… Sorry the past few days of content have been so tedious, I just love the Blue Angels!

The first Blue Angels airshow was today – every year, even though it’s pretty much the same, it still feels like the first time and makes me want to grow up to be a pilot…

I know some people find them annoying, and I agree that having I-90 closed periodically for four days is really awful, but the Blue Angels are SO DAMN COOL.

So we’re driving home from UW, I-90 construction is DONE! Ahead of schedule! Wooo! Express lanes are OPEN! It’s 80 degrees and the sun is SHINING! And we are STUCK IN BUMPER TO BUMPER TRAFFIC.

Yes, really.

There was a six car + semi accident on westbound I-90 just after 4pm so by 4:25 when we hit the bridge, we were just in the thick of it. It was awful; two westbound lanes closed by Bellevue fire and rescue, one lane of the express lanes closed because a vehicle practically jumped the partition and we’re crawling to the Island because everyone wants to look at the carnage. Awful. Oh, and did I mention that my gas tank light came on under the Convention center? Yeah.

So I filled up my tank and hit the beach – some nice cloud cover rolled in and there was no one there, except the tai-chi dudes and Cobi, the black lab / border collie swimming in the middle with his frisbee, and Cobi’s owner. The water was perfect :) so I just floated along for a while

my art history class met at the SAM again today, so afterwards I bussed back to UW, hopped in my car and sped away! Right into traffic on Montlake :( Stuck for 35 minutes trying to get from Pend Oreille / E-1 to the intersection at 520 so I can zip through the Arboretum. Ridiculous! I can’t wait for I90 to reopen!!!

Anyway, made it to the beach to hang out with my girls; thanks to Hannah for taking this picture of us trying not to fall off the dock at Madison Park Beach… Nothing quite like driving home in a wet bikini :/ Now, time to get ready for the party tonight!
