My heart wants roots
My mind wants wings
I cannot bear
Their bickerings

On Top of the World

I'm kind of in love with this song. It's the best. I was on a run a few days ago and this song came on and I started doing jump/leaps every time the chorus repeated "I'm On Top Of the World", which is a little weird... but that's just how great I think this song is. I hope you think so too.

A Day at the Races

We got all Kentucky Derby-fied this weekend and headed out to Golden Gate Fields for a day at the races courtesy of Groupon. Having read the book Seabiscuit in high school, I was pretty much an expert on everything that was going on.

Topped the day of with a Zac Brown Concert (not a big country person, but they're fun!) and spent Sunday having a nice little lake-side picnic at Foothill Park.

Life's tough lately, send words of encouragement ;)

Since I know you've all been dying to know, I figured I'd help answer them for you...

Jess! How's life?
Life is great. I currently shower more at 24 Hour Fitness than my own apartment and change my clothes more in my car than in my room. Homeless, you ask? Not quite. I'm coaching a high school varsity girl's lacrosse team and squeeze in a workout on my lunch break then rush right over to practice from work.

You coach a lacrosse team!? How is it?
I love it, it's so fun to be involved with lacrosse again. I rotate back and forth between feeling middle aged because I am old enough to be coaching, and feeling like a teenager since I spend more time with 16 year old girls than my own friends. Prom, college apps, and AP exams have once again taken over my life. I think my social skills might be deteriorating a bit, hopefully I don't start developing crushes on 17 year old boys.

Well what else have you been up to?
I've made a couple trips to Utah to go skiing with friends from high school and to celebrate Easter! We also went to Arizona to visit family and enjoy the weather and I've been having fun exploring San Francisco, Half Moon Bay, Santa Cruz, etc. a bit more. I'm REALLY excited for the upcoming months for a girls weekend with friends from college to L.A., family vacation in Hawaii, and a few weeks in Southeast Asia. Cross your fingers that whole adventure doesn't turn into a scene from Brokedown palace.

Did you see Hunger Games!?
Yes, of course. At midnight. It was awesome and intense. I also saw Titanic. The most popular girl in my 6th grade class saw Titanic 13 times and bragged about it. Well, I'm not there yet, but I'm on my way. Maybe one day I can be as cool as her.

Anything else we should know?
Well, sure. I'm currently loving the tv show Smash, check it out. I'm reading "The Sound and the Fury" by Faulkner. If any of you have read this, please, help a sister out. I'm not getting it. Thirdly, Naples-style pizza might be the greatest thing in the world. If you ever come to San Francisco, go to "Una Pizza Napoletana" if not, try and make do with what you can. I'm in love.

Please direct any other questions to the comment section.

A Rant and A Rave (Literally)

Rant: What is the deal with the clothes that are in style lately? I hate the fact that I've now been alive long enough to see styles come and go and then come again. The 90's should not be coming back. Case in point: the jeans pictured below. If you are a perpetrator of the following trends, you are now dead to me.

Rave: We've been doing a lot of dancing lately. The group has fallen in love with a certain club that has mash-ups of current songs, classic songs, and a little bit of everything. We've gone 3 times this month. Most recently to celebrate St. Patrick's Day.

To top that off, a friend from college's band has been on tour around the west coast and made a stop in San Fran lately.

Also, in honor of the late Whitney Houston, I've changed my ringtone to "I Wanna Dance With Somebody", so rest assured when you call and it takes a while for me to pick up, I'm busting a move and will be there soon. Life is good, keep dancing.

Life Lately

Pictured: Ferry ride and subsequent day trip to Tiburon, engagement party photo booth gone wrong, weekend trip to Lake Tahoe

Conclusions: it's beautiful here, I'm a creep, so are my friends, so it's cool...

BART Olympics

This is the kind of shenanigans that ensues on a 30 minute ride into San Francisco...
