(9/25/11) Senior: Natalie

Let me introduce you to my wonderful new friend Natalie. She's a highschool senior this year and already had her photos done, but was gracious (and fun!) enough to agree to hang out with me and do a photo day.

Natalie is one of the sweetest people - I dare to say - ever. When I first met her, she understood that I felt disoriented and helped me so much by being incredibly welcoming. She's a remarkably kind, fun, hilarious, and ridiculously sweet friend.

Natalie, thank you so much for hanging out and laughing with (at?) me. I can't tell you how much I appreciate your friendship!

(9/8/11) San Francisco

First off, let me just say that in the last three days I've realized that I have a rather crazy obsession for Mat Kearney's music. It's quite fantastic. There, that's out of the way - awesome!

On Monday, my family and I toured UC Berkeley. We figured that since we were so close anyway, we might as well stick around and hang out in San Francisco!

The lovely bay:

One of my favorite restaurants of all time... Boudin:
Spare time? Why not make an alligator out of bread?
Yummiest sandwich I've ever had - the classic chicken club. Something I dream about.
It was so tasty:

After we hung out in San Fran, we drove a little ways up Highway 1 to see the ocean. 

First time I'd ever seen the sunset over the Pacific:
