Mumford and Sons

I had downloaded Mumford and Sons’s album a while back but I didn’t really listen to the album until I was in England. THEY ARE AMAZING!!! I think I listened only to them for a couple of weeks. I was hooked. I started looking up if they were playing any shows in the UK, turns out they had toured a couple of months before. I was so devastated. Of course that would happen to me! Then I found out they were playing in LA in June, but that was sold out! I love my hometown, but sometimes we’re too good at appreciating good music. That was a bummer too, but a few weeks later they added a second LA date, so I’m going to that one! I can’t wait til June 3rd!!!!

Anyways, listen to them if you haven’t. They’ve made me appreciate banjos so much more now.

So I haven’t written on here in ages. England has come and gone and I’m really depressed about it. I left Oxford at seven in the morning on Saturday, took a cab to Heathrow, and took an eleven hour flight back to Los Angeles. I got a little teary eyed when I said bye to my friend. Not really cuz I’ll miss her but more cuz I’ll miss Oxford so much. Right now, I can see myself living there, despite the awkward encounters with people I would rather not see and people telling people you’re avoiding where you are. I swear there’s like no personal space. But even with that, I fell in love with Oxford and I didn’t want to leave. I guess I’ll post memorable experiences on here. Boys, friends, frenemies, enemies, weirdos, you know the usual.

I bought my plane ticket for London today.
It’s making everything seem more real now.
When I was paying for it, Oasis started playing in the background. That can only be a good sign!

I am so in love with the Kinks right now. So so so good.


This morning, I found out the Maccabees are playing the NME Awards Tour in February! (If I’m in England,) I am so there! This has to happen! Like it really NEEDS to happen!
I missed the chance of seeing them two years ago in L.A. because the friend I wanted to go with thought I said Mumm-ra instead of the Maccabees (because they totally sound the same)!

Fingers crossed I’ll be in London come February 20th!

Alison ‘VV’ Mosshart, originally uploaded by elvislocke.

I was on the SDSU campus today and I noticed a Dead Weather poster on a bulletin board. I got really excited because I thought they might be playing a gig there, but it was only an advertisment for their album. I made it my mission to leave the campus with one of the posters of my hero,  Alison Mosshart. SUCCESS! Now, I have to find a place to put my new poster without interrupting the harmony of my room. This is going to be a bit hard.

Today, I also bonded with one of my professors’ husband because 1) he was tall enough to reach the Dead Weather poster and 2) he seems the only other person in San Diego to know what a hipster is.

Happily never after

Oxford might not happen after all. Apparently to get in as a student visitor, you must have a certain number in your bank account. Poor college student that I am, I probably don’t have enough! I need to try to get more money from my school or get a student loan. My dreams are being crushed and it hurts so much.

This is so overused but FUCK MY LIFE.
