First of all: went to a dinner party yesterday, and this was the decoration.. They didn't have any vases. Welcome to Berkeley.
And it's still summer :) Which I don't mind. What I do mind, on the other hand, is studying when it's so warm and nice outside. I figured I might as well make the best of it: I put on some shorts, a top, grabbed my books, and went out to buy a smoothie. Heard the weather back home wasn't too bad either, but I can guarantee it's nothing like here!
