I am loving all of the throwback photos that come up on my computer reminding me of moments that seem far yet familiar. I am not much of soccer enthusiast but I love sports and being outdoors, and the fans in Seattle always show out out for Sounders games.
Luna and I had ourselves a very lazy Thanksgiving holiday weekend. Besides spending it with our Caucasian family in Monroe, I managed to make it downstairs to workout, indulged in an excessive amount of causation television (Gilmore Girls, Super Girl & Masters of Sex), and ate ramen and Mac n cheese all weekend. Also, I did manage to watch Insecure- this latest episode deserves a separate post (Damn, Issa!), in addition to Shameless (Damn, Svetlana is breaking rank).
I FaceTimed with Lex on Sunday, she’s wrapping up her last season playing professional volleyball in Turkey. She told me all about her hot air balloon excursion; how she was able smell the gas and see clouds of smoke covering Aleppo *sigh….. we also talked about a girl I was seeing- how we met and hit it off; how she invited me to her friend’s Halloween party, introduced me to her friends; how we made out and held hands on the roof of her friend’s bougie apartment in downtown Seattle, and how she stayed over at my place and I stayed over at hers. We even went on a wine tour in woodinville, and grabbed lunch afterwards where we discovered a new IPA we both dug…..
(I’ll write another post about said girl once I completely process and wrap my head around it. Also, I’m blushing because my abuela and mom subscribe to this blog, they’re going to read about my hoochie lifestyle).
I went to see Kanye West’s Saint Pablo tour at Key Arena in Seattle last month; I endured the rants about Jay-Z and how Blue Ivy hasn’t had a play date with Northi (or something like that), and how the apple/Tidal bs has him feeling “tight,” which he exclaimed over and over and which I found to be hilarious. (I’m still trying to incorporate the word “tight” into my everyday vernacular with little success). Ultimately, I went to hear “WAVES” live which he played back-to-back so I got my money’s worth because let’s be honest, that damn beat is glorious all on it’s own.
I found his stage , or rather flying spacecraft, and lights to be v dope…
When he seemed distracted standing there on stage with little to no expression, I thought about Beyonce and how much she puts into a performance and how in comparison Kanye gets to stand there in comfy army boots and sweatpants, no memorized choreography or live band…. anywho, I still enjoyed the show and his music does make me feel some type of way.
Speedy recovery, Kanye.
