Go Outside

This past weekend I had the scary realization that I only have one month of summer left. One. Month. Ahh! Its gone by so fast. I've been working the most I ever have, so this summer has been pretty tame, but at the same time really good. It's been a nice transition from the surreal semester in Europe to life back home. The fact that I was living in Denmark two months ago feels sooo long ago that it's hard to grasp sometimes.

Things that rocked today:

1. I got paid! It was about time.

2. This shirt rocks. 

3. I caved and bought a Fjallraven Kanken backpack and I LOVE it. 

4. Cults made a music video! Its been over a year since my friend Jeff showed me the song "Go Outside" and I'm still in love with it. Here's the official music video:

OH YEAH I saw Oh Land and Sia last week at First Ave and they were amaaazing. Oh Land was so cute and Danish she won me over instantly. Sia was incredible live! She was down to earth and chatty-but in the funny, charming way. At one point during the show she stopped to pull up her pants on stage. Haha can you believe it? I just about died. So great. Have a fantastic rest of the week everyone!

Holy Heat

Minnesota's lost its head and heated up to the high 90s. + 74% humidity= a heat index over 100 and a hermit Kelsey. So I've been cooped up inside trying to find things to do. I cleaned out my closet today and probably inhaled more dust than is advisable, but in the process I came across some gems. I found this great pleated skirt that was my grandma's a long time ago. My mom inherited if from my grandma, then gave it to me. On a side note, I'm looking for something new to paint so if you have any ideas let me know!

My friend Emily just sent me this awesome mix with a bunch of 60s music, so I've sort of been stuck there lately. Some of my favorites right now are:

Somebody to Love-Jefferson Airplane
Ain't Too Proud to Beg-The Temptations
All Day and All of the Night-The Kinks

(in the least lezzy way possible)

The End of an Era

I saw the last Harry Potter movie last night and it was amazing! My mom got tickets to a sneak peak showing so we got to see it before midnight. Pretty VIP right? David Yates did an incredible job recreating the war-like battle at Hogwarts. It was exciting, emotional, terrifying...I could go on forever.

 "Of course its happening inside your head Harry, but why on earth should that mean it is not real?"-Dumbledore

Its so sad that this movies marks the end of the decade-long Harry Potter saga, but I liked what Daniel Radcliffe said at the London Premiere-
"I don't think the end of the story happens tonight because--don't get too excited; it's not what you think--because each and every person, not only in the Square but also watching around the world who will see this film and have followed these films for the last 10 years, will carry this story with them for the rest of their lives, and it will affect what they do."  
Well said. What a great ending to an era that I'm proud to call part of my childhood.

the girls are back in town

All the stars aligned this weekend because three of my best friends from high school came back in town! I've been going hard since Thursday and am completely exhausted, but hey its worth it :) 

bahaha I love my friends. 

I'm going to push the Generationals again because I like them so much. Better yet, the video features cats. Sounds like a winning combination to me. Enjoy!
