2018 Rewind

It’s been a while since I’ve posted to this blog. I’m hoping to somehow restart it since it’s a new year. But before I do that, here’s a look back on how 2018 was for me (yes it’s about to be mid-February Whoops?).

A few highlights from the year:

  • Weddings – A friend of mine that I worked in retail with and also attended nursing school with got married. I was one of the bridesmaids and our friends from SD came up to celebrate, so it was a ton of fun. Near the end of the year, another friend from college got married in Hawaii, which I attended as a guest.

 

  • Travel – Made a few trips to Vegas for my friend’s bachelorette party and for Christmas. Also attended my 10th year at SDCC, which was an awesome experience (as usual). Since one of my friend’s wedding was in Hawaii, my friends and I also took advantage of the days before and after the event to take in sites and get our grub on.

  • Music – I attended quite a few of these events, all of which were firsts. I decided to skip out on Coachella and instead checked out Bottle Rock for one of the days. The drive was long, but seeing celebrities on the culinary stage and also performing on one of the main stages was awesome. As an on and off fan of Korean music, I finally got to check out some artists that came to California. Loved Eric Nam‘s intimate set, and his opener Loote made their way onto my Spotify playlist. I also got to meet him after the show. He’s adorable! TLC was performing at the San Mateo County fair, so a few friends and I jumped in at the chance to see them. No regrets here! They sound just as good as they did back in the 90s. Since last year, I slowly but surely became a fan of BTS, who’s by far the most popular Korean group known in the US to date. After listening to their albums beginning from their debut in 2013, I couldn’t help but be hooked. You could imagine my excitement when I found out they were touring the US. I was able to get tickets to their LA and Oakland shows, (yes, I saw them twice and it was totally worth it) and it was an amazing experience. The Oakland show was a special one since it was the group leader’s birthday the day of. The audience and the guys sang to him and he looked so happy. I also did a last minute upgrade and got incredible seats. It was the closest I could have imagined being near them without having to stand in the GA sections right next to the stage.

  • For the ‘Gram – There were a few exhibits that came to SF last year. I visited 29 Rooms and Candytopia. Both were entirely different experiences, but I liked the latter the most because my friends and I left with a good amount of free candy (score).

 

 

 

 

 

Already have a few things in store for this year. And as with every year, I hope to try new things and make more great memories to look back on.
