Whirlwind Weekend Ahead

You guys, there are just too many fun things happening this weekend, especially outdoors. As much as I would love to get to them all, I just don’t think it’s physically possible! Since my Summer Bucket List says so – and I must abide – I’ll definitely be making my way to Huntington Beach (probably via bike) to see the start of the U.S. Open of Surfing. While I prefer to catch the tail end of the event next weekend when all the pros are out in full, I have something ultra important to attend to for work: our rover Curiosity is landing on Mars! (If you’re not privy to all the excitement with THAT little chestnut, watch this. And I’ll post more on how to watch all the landing excitement next week.) Here are some of the other fun, outdoorsy things happening this weekend – and beckoning me to do some major multitasking/commuting. Renegade Craft Fair – July 28-29, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., Los Angeles Historic Park, free Cinespia presents The Big Lebowski …

Say Hello to Your Friends

If you don’t get the reference in the title, it might be because – as many early twentysomethings have inferred to me as of late – my age, 27, is “older.” (It also might be because you’re male or just unfortunately missed out on an amazing book/tv series.) Either way, it means I can be super stoked about things like this. So it can’t be all that bad, right? (Also, if you’re curious, watch, this) {Photo via Some Kind of Nostalgia}

This Will Be My Summer

My goal was to post this on Wednesday, the official first day of summer, but that didn’t quite pan out. (Not a good start to my jam-packed, goal-filled summer.) I have an excuse, though: I wanted to find the perfect background picture with which to create an awesome graphic that would surely inspire me to zoom right through my 30 summer bucket list items. I’m still working on that part, so in the meantime, I’m making this official … I’m doing a summer bucket list!!! Summer has a way of biting me in the butt and making me want to go on a thousand adventures. I think it’s the extra sunshine. I pretty much run on solar power. So I decided to create a list of all the fun things I have in store for myself  this summer. The best part is I’m planning to blog about all of it, so you’ll have a front-row seat to my adventures and, I’m sure, misadventures. And maybe you’ll even create a bucket list of your own and …

Ruby Sparks

Have you guys seen the trailer for Ruby Sparks, a comedy about a writer whose character comes to life? My friend Luigi shared it with me and it looks totally delightful. Such a fun story idea! It comes out in July, think you guys will see it?


When Titanic came out in 1997, I was 13 years old and completely obsessed with the film; it helped that I had already gone through a ton of reading material on the ship in the 6th grade (yes, huge geek here) and  it’s still the only movie I’ve gone to see three times in theaters. TIME magazine recently released an amazing collection of the only photos of the Titanic at sea to survive the shipwreck, all taken by an Irish Jesuit priest named Francis Browne, who by chance decided to disembark from the ship after the first leg of its trip. The photos are a fascinating–and eerie–glimpse into life on the ship before the crash, and what things and people looked like during that time period. (Of course, director James Cameron really got all of those details spot-on in his film.) Here are some photos from the slideshow… Do you guys think you’ll see the movie in theaters? I’m not really a fan of 3-D, but I do love the idea of experiencing it on the …
