It’s Wednesday morning as I write this. I had a late start today because we got home at 1 o’clock from watching Paramore: Tour Two concert at the Greek Theatre last night (more on that later). Roan still managed to go to work in spite the lack of sleep, while I take advantage of working from the comforts of our home today. He even made me breakfast before heading to work this morning, which I find so thoughtful yet undeserving of.
Today’s first order of business (other than consuming the hotdogs and egg my husband has prepared for me) is to load the laundry into the wash. I’ve mastered the art of multitasking, and I simply can’t work from home without doing some chores on the side. While the laundry runs, I check my bullet journal to see what else I had set to accomplish for the day. I usually revisit my monthly calendar (current and the next) to ensure that all bills are paid on time (or in advance) and are well-accounted for.
So Long, Summer!
I peruse the month of September for the last time, and feel a pang in my chest. Summer is officially over. All signs of summertime are gone. The temperatures have noticeably dropped and while a true fall foliage is next to non-existent in this part of the country, everywhere you look screams autumn. Let me tell you this—I had the best summer (yet)! This month definitely went by quicker than I had imagined.
Reunited and It Feels So Good
We had Mom and Dad over for two weeks—with both their birthdays coincided their trip—and I still haven’t fully recovered from that. I was a wreck as soon as we parted ways at the airport (we didn’t leave until they got through security and I saw Dad wave goodbye). I cried my eyes out for the majority of our drive back to San Diego, and I slept my misery off for the rest of that weekend.
I’ve been trying to write about the highlights of their trip since last week, but I couldn’t bring myself to proceed without feeling emotional about it. One day, I’ll get around to finishing it (or maybe not at all). Either way, we definitely loved having them around, albeit short and quick.

Paramore: Tour Two
Probably the best way to cap the summer season off (although technically, it’s already fall) is seeing Paramore perform live for the second time! All the hassle I went through as soon as their new album dropped in May were all worth it in the end. Don’t even get me started with the 3.5-hour long drive we had to endure through LA traffic, almost missing out on Best Coast‘s entire performance! (P.S. They were a perfect fit in opening the show for Paramore‘s North American tour!)
I somewhat grew up with Paramore, and I witnessed how much the band and their music have changed over the years (much to some people’s disappointment). Gone are their angsty teenager selves; Paramore has evolved into a more vulnerable yet mature band, and you best believe I’m very much staying for that.
