Went to my first professional hockey game last weekend! It was a blast and we got our tickets for $15 each. Our seats were great too considering the price of our ticket.
So far I’ve been to a professional MLB, NFL, and NHL game. My next goal is to go to a MLS game and an NBA game! I’m a big Lakers fan so I’m going to have to start saving money to buy a ticket one day.
On an unrelated note, I will be going to my first country show this Wednesday. I’ll be seeing Kip Moore at the House of Blues downtown. Never really listened to country before but I’m going with a bunch of my friends so it’ll be fun!
I’ve wanted to go to a stand-up comedy show for the longest time. I’ve always been on the look-out and it’s been no luck for the past couple of years. I’ve been somewhat content with watching them on Netflix, envious of those who were watching it live at the time.
This all changed after I read an email from Ticketmaster.com
Saw this person’s name on the list and I couldn’t have been more excited.
This guy is absolutely hilarious. I’ve always laughed so hard on his movie stints and in episodes of Parks and Recreation. He’s going on a tour right now and is stopping by San Diego! He is going to perform at the San Diego Civic Theater which is ten minutes away in downtown.

The show will be on May 6, the Monday after graduation (which is coming up fast! 7 more weeks!). I like to think it as one of my graduation presents for myself from myself. I’m stoked. Can’t wait!
GYRAD (Get-Your-Roommate-A-Date) is a typical hall event in PLNU. It’s also mostly done for the underclassmen and arranged by the RA’s.
So what happens when you’re a Junior or Senior and living in the Flex apartments?
We make our own party and have a Flex date with another apartment. We decided to dress fancy and have it at one of our friends uncle’s house who she’s house sitting anyways. Win-win. Super nice place, fancy looking people, and good company. It was definitely more of a success story than some awkward GYRAD dates I’ve had in the past.

Swell has arrived. Super stoked.
Went surfing – too crowded. Not so stoked anymore. Asked the question: How do we escape from all these crowds and surf quality waves?
Well, our only option was night surfing! I’ve done it a couple of times at the Cliffs and conditions couldn’t be more perfect! Clear skies, half-moon, stars everywhere. So me and my buddies decided to go to the best wave that Sunset Cliffs has to offer. Usually during the day it’s always packed. But what about at 11 PM?
We were walking at the beach at night and we could actually see our shadows from the moonlight. We could kind of see if waves are coming by seeing a dark line coming to us. We judged how big it is by how thick and dark the line was. Once we’re up on the wave, the lights from the sky and the buildings on the cliffs helped illuminate the wave and we could ride it perfectly fine. Needless to say, we had a lot of fun! And to end it we all went and got burritos, which is always the food of choice after a surf session.
Gotta love California. Went snowboarding at Snow Summit over at Big Bear Lake and the next day went surfing over at Sunset Cliffs.
Has to be the only place where someone can snowboard and surf on the same day. It’s on my bucket list.
My whole face was numb at this point. Too cold for me.

Since home is on the other side of the world, I stayed at Loma for this thanksgiving break. I have a couple friends that are from San Diego so I wasn’t worried of being bored to death. Plus, there’s a swell – which turned out to be a pretty bad experience, but more on that later.
Since I have a lot of free time, I decided to work on my car! First thing is a “paint” job. The spray can I used is called Plasti Dip and I’m actually spraying rubber coating on my car instead of paint.
Here’s the job I did on the back of the car.
I also messed around on the hood of the car with the leftover Plasti Dip. I thought the look would grow on me but it didn’t so I took it off the next day.
Since this is an economy car, it can get a little noisy when on the road. So I installed some sound deadening on the car that dampers and reduces the vibration in the car, which in turn help reduces road noise. This is a pretty cheap mod but it took a lot of hours to get done. I did the doors, the trunk, and the backseat. Still haven’t completed the front seats yet.
So, about the swell! It came on Thanksgiving day and Sunset Cliffs was an absolute ZOO! Super crowded. Ended up catching three waves and was over it. The next day I went to surf Blacks and buckled my board, which I just got three weeks ago! The waves weren’t that big too. Oh well. It happens.
So I went board shopping on craigslist right away because a surfer without a board is no surfer at all. I decided to buy a cheap one while I save funds for a nicer one. Ended up buying this for $60 from an exchange student from Norway! Pretty sweet deal so I’m pretty stoked!
And now to finish strong! Two weeks of classes left this semester. Crazy!
