Juicing, LA, and other big news

As I type this, I'm drinking a juice made from kale, an apple, and two tangerines. I'm in bliss... I never thought I'd fall in love with juicing as much as I have, but man oh man ever since I acquired a juicer from one of my favorite people last Tuesday I've been going crazy. I also have been continuing on my salad June, but I have so many other things to speak of.

My usual concoction is kale, apples, and another bit of fruit. I love the rainbows the juicer makes as well, even in the compost section.

not all of this is kale- only 4 oz. is.

I'll start posting recipes as soon as I'm less busy with life.

Speaking of life, this past weekend I was in Los Angeles for my older sisters graduation.

Still have the sling on myself, but I hope to get it off this Friday!!!

Of course while in LA I ate TONS of good eats.. starting off on Friday for lunch with a salad and this..

And a little treat Sunday morning before flying back to the Bay

I had a great weekend of food, and enjoyed seeing UCLA and my sister graduate! I had to come back early to wake up for my 8 AM chemistry class that started here at UC Berkeley on Monday... and will continue four days a week for 7 more weeks. I'm pretty swamped with work and such, but hope to pass with at least a B.... so I can bring it to University of Colorado at Boulder next semester. 

That's right- I'm officially transferring (and hiding it at the bottom of this post for a reason). I have many many reasons that I'm transferring, which I will expand on in a later post. All I know is that I'm excited, and thrilled to be able to be near nature, mountains, and a real college campus. I'm going to orientation in little over a month, then move out of Berkeley end of August in Boulder. 

For now, I'm looking forward to mountains and hiking... after I finish all this chemistry homework on my back.
