Saturday, I had tutor, and then after, went to Lauren's sweet sixteeeeeeen. We took a charter bus to Melrose Ave., on the way discussing shops and sales and such. We got off and everyone split into groups, and Lauren and I decided to shop together. We went to a lot of shops, like the Wasteland and Lotta, and Kendo, American Vintage, etc. We even saw Nick Cannon in this ghetto shop. It was super hot but hanging out with just Lauren when I hadn't seen her since the end of last year was amazing! Then we called and met up with Alyssa who had to come late and then we went to Creatures of Comfort, my favorite store. They had a cute selection of Repetto flats and oxfords, as well as A.P.C. dresses and Eley Kishimoto clothing. Lauren and I got matching totes with maps on them; I got Los Angeles and she got San Francisco. At checkout, she needed a penny so I gave her one, and then when I checked out, I ended up a penny short so she had to look for a penny for me. Haha. Then we raced back to the bus because we were late [i will never forget the 5 block run on melrose avenue with flats on and people screaming "no running on the streets" and alyssa's "fuck you"] and headed for Sushi Hiroba. We had like literally 7 appetizers before the entree so I ended up taking home a lot of food. Lauren's cake was gorgeous and so was her Lauren Moffatt dress! Our table, with Brian, Daniel, Alyssa, Lauren, and me, was crazy and fun toooooo and we had a really good time. Ahhh I'm gonna miss those kids until I see them again. On the way home on the bus, Lauren opened her presents and we all had some good laughs. What a fun day.
Sunday, I had a violin masterclass and did considerably better than the one on Friday. Even got some compliments and did better than the other boy who will be in my competition category next saturday. After the masterclass, the people that knew each other really well went out to dinner at California Pizza Kitchen!! People that went wereeee: Anita, moi, Patricia, Sarah, Lydia, Rachel, and Ashley. We didn't order that much but we talked A LOT. We had discussions about everything from gelato to shaved ice. Then it was picture time and everyone got their phones/cameras out. It took us like an hour to figure out the bill but it was all good. Then we wished everyone good luck on their competition and hopefully we can meet again the day after the competition holding trophies. Got home and Josephine called me out of sheer boredom and occupied an hour of my life. We had a weird conversation as usual.
Next Sunday, Lauren and I get to meet at Melrose to continue our shopping at the Way We Wore, Marc Jacobs, Paul Smith, Kidrobot, etc etc. Je t'aime, mon amie!
