perhaps it’s a sign when mid-march is fast-approaching, and i only have less than 5 posts…
i’ll take it as a sign.
i need a vacation.

on monday night, i had dinner with friend. we ran into other friends, we joined tables. they were all planning on leaving for vietnam this saturday, for a wedding. somewhere during dinner, i was invited. how does one refuse such an invitation? tuesday i bought my plane ticket, wednesday renewed my passport, today i got my visa. leaving saturday, 10 days. if you don’t know this about me, i’m vietnamese. i was born in new york, and have never been to vietnam. this is very exciting. if i can find any time and internet connection, i’ll post some updates. if not, i’ll be back soon.

stay together

how could i have forgotten about this amazing song? stay together, by suede. the ep was brilliant. i remember thinking it would have made such a great coming-of-age soundtrack- and listening to it over and over in my black carpeted bedroom, which had purple walls, while thinking about my crushes on boys, i guess it kind of was for me…

if you like it, you should go buy a copy here.
