Life update

So here's what my life has been like (somewhat) lately:

A few weeks ago, my cousin and I did a hike in Pacific Palisades. The views were gorgeous, as you can see. It was about 3 miles, and it umm kicked our butts. My legs felt like jello for 2 days afterwards. Sooo, half dome here we come?

On the 4th of July, my parents and I took a day trip to Santa Monica. It was cool and cloudy (weather that seems like a distant memory now). And still no one would go on the ferris wheel with me! Jessie, let's go?!

And no, we haven't moved yet. But hopefully soon...because I'm tired of living out of boxes.

What I'm reading: June

Better late than never on this one, huh?

The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao. I broke my "rule" of never giving up on books for this one. I really tried...but gave up because the plot was boring, I didn't care about any of the characters, and there was way too much Spanish (I was that kid who took French in school...). Yeah, not the best choice. 

I also read The Defining Decade. As I've mentioned before, I find psychology ridiculously interesting, so I loved this book. I found it honest and relatable, to the point where on almost every page I could identify myself in one of the stories. Definitely a recommended read for anyone my age.
