The Hunchback of Notre Dame Musical

Hello readers!

So this past Saturday, my brother and I decided to cross-off an item from our bucket list: to go see The Hunchback of Notre Dame! I've been wanting to see this musical since it premiered in Germany back in 1999. When I heard that it was playing at the La Mirada Theater for the Performing Arts (which was just a few minutes away from me), I knew that I had to jump at the chance to catch this production. And I am so glad that I did!!!

 Watch the trailer above for the highlights of the musical.

Little Free Library Adventures #3

Hello everyone! I have been occupying myself with work, dance, and of course school these past few weeks. I have not been able to focus on any reads or writing any posts since there has been so much on my mind lately. But I figured that I should at least post one of my Little Free Library adventures that I had a couple of weeks ago. 

My good friend got married on August 20th in Santa Barbara, California. I made the two hour trip to witness my friend's most memorable day as well as be part of her wedding (I was a bridesmaid). My plan was to drive back home that same night but my mother forbid me to do so in fear that I would be too tired to drive home. So, the good daughter that I am, I decided to listen to her and found an hotel in Ventura (it was too expensive to stay in Santa Barbara for just a few hours of sleep). 

I have never been in an hotel room all by myself before so I was excited to take advantage of it and try to sleep in. However, my busy mind did not allow me to. I was up at seven in the morning and couldn't find a way to relax until checkout time at 12. By 9 am, I couldn't stand the quiet and the thought of being alone in a strange room.  So I decided to look up the LFL map to see if there were any stops nearby. There sure were!!!
