Waking up just before 11 a.m.
Ana and I attend the Trader Joe's picnic shindig at the Holiday Trav-L-Park. All of Ana's co-workers are here. Mingling. Eating Tofu Wraps and Watermelon. Shooting a bald basketball and kicking a soccer ball around. One of the guys, Chris, I recognize from Ocean Lakes High School – we both graduated 2002 and had mutual friends. We talk about horror movies and House of Leaves.
Back home. Catching up on things.
Grilled PB&J using Ana's homemade bread. Fuji Apple. Honey Green Tea.
Watching a documentary on Rush.
Teaching lessons at Music Makers.
Learning DEJA songs in the theater room at the music space.
Enjoying a home cooked meal outside: Chicken, Red Onions, Broccoli, and Sweet Potatoes.
DEJA band rehearsal. There's technical issues with the sound system that hold us back from practicing as long as we'd like. But I'm getting more comfortable the more I play with these guys. I still don't feel prepared for the first gig this Friday.
Back home. Hanging with Ana for a bit in her room – sharing Chocolate.
Snacking on Dill Popcorn.
Back at the music space practicing my own damn songs...finally.
Sleep 4 a.m.
