I had one of the most stressful hard weeks at work this week. It was pretty bad. It got to the point where I wasn't even talking about it. Like I didn't even wanna get into it or explain all the things I had to do, all the responsibilities stressing me out. Wednesday was the worst. Fighting the clock, and trying to get things done in time to ship out for a meeting in NY. Omg, seriously. So Thursday morning, before getting into my daily grind, I checked out losanjealous.com and read a post that Hot Hot Heat was going to play the Grove that evening! I had to contain myself, it was hard. Didn't want to scream in my cubicle. No, wouldn't want that. I was so excited and overjoyed. I felt rewarded for all the hard work I did that week all by myself because my team was in NY. I was so happy to see Hot Hot Heat again. It was a free show to promote Canadian tourism. Thought they would do a short set, but no! It was a full set, about an hour I think. So happy. What an unexpected wonderful surprise. You don't even know how much I love them. **Forgot to add that when I first saw the stage set up, I was like, oh no, the water. I thought I might have to jump in there and yell out "Steve!" (a la Jenny in Forrest Gump at the National Mall scene).

Last weekend, I did a little cleaning again. These are things I did in my drawing class in high school. I've been holding onto them for a long time, but I decided it's time I let them go. I just don't have room any more. Even if I did, I don't think it means that much to me. So I just threw them away. It was mostly charcoal portraits of classmates, drawing exercise, or color pencil crosshatching.
**In other news, I hope everyone is celebrating Mother's Day! This morning, I hurt my toe. Really bad. Thought it might be broken, but I was able to move it. It immediately started to get swollen. Now it's swollen and purple and painful. Can't really walk on it either. :(
**The Dhamma Brothers. My mom wanted to watch it so I took her to see it yesterday. It's showing for one week only at the Sunset Laemmle. I enjoy watching documentaries. You should watch it. It's about Vipassana Meditation as treatment in prisons. Needless to say, I cried a lot. My mom was like "this girl just started crying in the beginning of the film." Watching the film got me depressed.
