I started out the month with a half day of skiing at Mount High. I got blown out last time I went and got a refunded ticket for the day and as the season was winding down, I had to use it as soon as possible. Although it was relatively warm, the cover was thin and the snow got sludgy as the day went on. I hope I can return next year for a few better days.

I’ve been having a lot of doctor’s appointments recently for travel vaccinations for my Thailand trip and follow-up for my throat problems. As a preventative measure more than anything, I’m getting a tonsillectomy next month, so if anyone has any recovery advice, send it my way!

With the new Avengers film out, I have been working a lot recently, but other than that I enjoy going out, hiking and spending time with family and friends, including a brief visit from my dad and meeting my online friend of over eight years, Chandler!

My birthday was on the 28th and I celebrated with a new phone (thanks, Mom and Dad), going to a few gigs and having a nice meal with my family. After work on Friday the 26th, I drove to Anaheim to see Architects at House of Blues. It was a really good show and I had fun seeing my Brighton boys start their stateside tour.

I stayed at an AirBNB for the night before heading to Ike’s (my all-time favorite restaurant, and I had a birthday voucher!) to fuel up for Back to the Beach festival at Huntington Beach. I parked near the pier, did some sightseeing (there was some kind of VW bus show on the pier) and walked to the concert about a mile and a half down the beach. When I arrived at the festival, I walked around to see the vendors and grab a drink before watching Streetlight Manifesto. It was quite different to see them playing to such a big crowd, but it was just as amazing, if not more so. Besides from all the sand that made it impossible to keep your balance and got everywhere. I did some more hanging out and eating before the main act… Blink-182! They played Enema of the State in whole as well as a handful of other hits. It was so much fun and they sounded great for a couple of old men.

Last but not least, I have been featured in a Meet the Blogger post over at Fraser’s Fun House, so check it out!
