I should've seen it glow
but everybody knows a broken heart is blind.

Operator please, this is wrecking my mind. Today was Alpha Psi's prerush, and I had a lot of fun! Slightly overwhelming to be starting my 20 units and having an insane amount of reading the weekend of easter and pre-rush, back to back. I was able to successfully complete an insane (INSANE) amount of reading friday and saturday evening (tonight) after the event, hence me not partaking in any of the jungle juice at the party! It's always so funny how everyone constantly tries to get the sober people to drink ("I'm SO sorry you're sober", "oh come on, you deserve a drink!", "No one does homework on a saturday!") but I know it's all in good fun. But at the end of the day, I feel incredibly productive, happy and NOT hungover, haha! Anyways, the day was absolutely beautiful today, nice and sunny with just a slight pinch of wind, but sadly it looks as if it's going to be raining tomorrow during my easter celebration back at my mother's in my hometown. At least now I can relax joyfully, nibbling on all the chocolate knowing I have very little work to do monday! I also forgot to mention I created a photo book on Shutterfly for like $30, and I'm in absolute love with it! It came today in the mail, and it only has one little goof-ups (I forgot to remove the prompted-text on one of the pages, so it tells a funny sample story about a family's trip to Oregon LOL). Oh well, it gives the book more character anyway. I will be sure to post pictures of my Easter adventures and shutterfly book soon! PS: Dyed my hair darker last night and have been loving the do'. It's so naturally fitting (in my opinion) that people can hardly even tell I changed my hair even though it's so much darker! I am thinking I will try to keep it dark like this from now on, unless I do highlights again sometime in the future. Yay to the weekend, being done with work, and Easter-family time!

The first thing that you want,
will be the last thing you ever need. 

Everybody knows that a broken heart is blind. Went through my instagram (@urbancaseymariee) and realized how many of my recent photos I had yet to put up on this blog! I found a beautiful wedding dress in Los Gatos that my sister and I were absolutely dying over! The last photo is of some stunning tulips Eric got me recently, I am obsessed! Eric planted tulips in our own garden, and they came out perfectly. I wanted to take photos of my makeup room and put them on the blog, but unfortunately the lighting in that room is always so unflattering in photos! I think it's the wooden walls, it makes everything oddly warm in temperature and therefore photos don't come out at all! Either way, today is a wonderful day. Eric is out surfing, and I am at home organizing my closet and attempting to get back into wearing some of the clothes I haven't in such a long time! The last two days I have tried new outfits and I am quite loving "shopping my own closet"! Song recommendation: "Tighten Up" Black Keys.

Hold my hand & float back to the summer time, 
tangled in the willows now our tongues are tied.

It was a monday night when you told me it was over babe. This morning the outsidelands lineup was released! Sam Smith, Odesza, Wilco, James Bay, Black Keys, Axwell & Ingrosso, Lindsey Sterling, Chet Faker, Porter Robinson, Glass Animals, what an epic lineup! I am quite happy; I'm only bummed about the absence of Hozier, Jack Ü, and Florence + The Machine but honestly this lineup is full of so much talents it's totally fine and I'm very excited! The above photos are half from my adventures to Stanford mall yesterday, and the two of myself and my outfit are from today in Santa Cruz! Despite the great lineup announcement, I woke up feeling very stressed. I found out I probably didn't get the job I applied for, and even though I won a scholarship recently, it was sad to hear I wouldn't be working next quarter. It's OK though, everything happens for a reason, right? Taking 20 units AND working next quarter may of been way too hard anyways, so it's probably for the best! Grades came out today: I got 2 A+'s in my upper-divisions and an A in my lower-division creative writing class. Pretty rad :) Makes me feel a lot more comfortable adding an extra class next quarter! It was a treat to see my family yesterday, but I'm happy to be back home! I've also been loving updating this blog, it really makes me happy that I started doing it again!
