9 Things from the Last Three Days

by - Sunday, June 02, 2013

1. The Chairman Bao Coca Cola braised sandwiches- Some weeks are better than others, but this week's just reminded me of why I love it. That sandwich is one of the best things that has happened this year.

4. Debbie Reynold's boots at the very beginning of Singin in the Rain- Can we all just decide collectively that this is going to be the next big thing in boots? Because they are genuinely amazing. They may actually be collecting more rain water than repelling it, but who knows.
5. The bottom of an Oreo milkshake- The Boy and I went out to a diner with one of his friends from work after the movie, and this was the absolute highlight.
6. The kickoff of Camp Galileo- Oy, this weekend was a super huge challenge, because it required diving into a situation where I wasn't totally comfortable, where I was an outsider while others were friends, and where I had to really be vulnerable. It was pretty awesome/exhausting/scary/fun/weird. i really genuinely believe in the Camp's pedagogy (as well as its commitment to rubber chickens), and I think this will be great.
7. Having a long conversation with someone about self-evaluation and gauging skill vs. effort- Can I just have a million conversations like this? It was cool to think about how to best bring out the confidence in young kids. It is always exciting to talk to someone who cares about the things I do.
8. Mills College- Orientation was on a cute little campus in Oakland. The trip made the long days even longer, but it really was a beautiful little campus.
9. Finally getting to just lay on the couch and watch the premiere of Real Housewives of New Jersey- You can judge me all you want, but I am so happy and relaxed right now. Did I mention I also get to eat cherries? Life is good. Now I just need like 14 hours of sleep!
