I fell like I say this every month, but May passed like a blur. I can’t believe we’re almost halfway through 2021.
I went to Drive N’ Drag with Grant’s coworker Katie and her friend Casey which was so much fun! My first live event since Thrice in December 2019 (ugh). My favorite performances were Plastique and Gottmik. It was a pain in the ass to park (the mall where it was hosted was just closing and the matinee show was ending as well) but at least we got out quickly.
That same weekend, Grant went away on a boy’s camping trip so my friend Tony and I spent a day at Scenic Beach State Park. We chilled on the beach, had a fire and went in his inflatable kayak. As the name suggests, the park has a great view of the Olympic Mountains, it makes me want to see even more of Washington.
For Memorial Day weekend, Grant and I went to my hometown of Tucson. Although it was hot as Hades, we still managed some fun hitting up shops, eating tasty food, hanging out with my brothers and family friends, going on a hike at Madera Canyon and relaxing at home.
We’ll be going camping again next weekend but other than that, no huge plans for June… yet.
