this week was pretty amazing. looking back, i didn't realize how much i did, but then again, i guess that's sort of the point of doing this type of thing! on tuesday kenneth and i headed downtown to the paramount theater for the passion pit concert. we got chipotle and ate it in line. we ended up standing right in front of this family that had brought their kids to the show and we were amazed at how cool that was. icona pop and matt & kim opened for passion pit and it was such a good show. i didn't know icona pop was going to be there and i had just gotten into listening to them and it was so cool to see them. matt & kim always put on a good show, their energy is amazing. it was actually our second time seeing passion pit, but this time was so much better because we were in the fifth row or so. it was really great. after, we shared a cab with nicole and aubrey, two friends that sat in the balcony. the next day, henry and i took a trip to capitol hill. it's beginning to get to the point where there are days that i just want to spend in a particular neighborhood of seattle. lately it's been capitol hill, the vibe there is so great. henry and i stopped in elliott bay and he got a new book and journal and then we headed over to caffe vita. vita was the last recommendation i had on the list from the augie's baristas and it is right up there with stumptown for me. they have great coffee and a great second floor study area. when we left, the sky was churnin' out some intense cloud formations and we stopped to take some photos and videos. on our walk to the bus stop, the guys were out playing bike polo and i always stop and watch. they play the game of polo, but on bikes instead of horses. it's so crazy! i came back to my room and there were a ton of people studying. carl said that little message in the video because hardly anyone from school knows that i do this. or at least they don't watch them. hahaha. that night we had a raid! raids are where one floor raids the other side of the floor. this one was 90's themed so we all dressed up like we were little and ran through the boys' floor slamming on their doors and screaming "RAAAIIIIIDDDDDDDD!!!!!" it's really so much fun. it was really great because i wore high waisted shorts, mary janes, a button up, and a bow with a high pony tail, and that's basically what i wear normally. anyway, the raid involved a great 90s playlist, coloring books, catch phrase, blowing bubbles, and a group sing along to "i believe i can fly" by r kelly. an oldie but a goodie. it was great, even though i had to write two papers afterwards. friday was beautifully sunny! i wasn't scheduled to work so kenneth and i went to u village to use a jamba juice groupon that i had. we walked around, went to the apple store, and then ended up going to an unplanned dinner at boom noodle. kenneth is obsessed with it because their restaurants are heavily furnished with eames chairs. he had spring rolls and i had chicken pad thai. it was one of the few times i ate noodles with chop sticks and i surprised myself at how much better i had gotten with it. after dinner we found a little hole in the wall crepe shop and i got so excited. i had one with coffee ice cream and powdered sugar just like i did in paris. it was so delicious!
