new(ish) music tuesday @lucyschwartz @sunandthesea

quite the eventful monday-- went straight from work to the bootleg theatre in echo park, where the always delightful lucy schwartz was playing a free show. her new(ish) songs from her EP keep me, released back in nov. 2011, definitely indicate more depth and range. plus, she likes to sing about ghosts... the singer from aqualung also made a special appearance for one of her songs @ the show.

my only regret is not switching from wedges to flats for the show, as both of my feet feel really smushed right now. meh. #careergirlproblems

and then i get home, check facebook, and WHAT. i am pleasantly surprised to discover that the sun and the sea (three members of an ex-band known as the graduate) just put out a new EP today. enjoy.

so excited for this, y'all. i'm on my fifth round of listens.

SASS 2012

2011 was full of ups and downs. while i was a dutiful little worker bee for the first six months, i was unexpectedly placed in a rather strangely-opportune state of unemployment. that four month stretch actually gave me quite a bit of time to decompress, gather my wits, reflect, and come back into the work force fully energized.

my resolutions from 2011: overall, i feel i have been mildly successful (with the exception of photo-ing/blogging more, which was an ultimate fail). i also achieved some things which only entered my calendar when i was on the prowl for a job. was given the opportunity to volunteer for a non-profit, to volunteer at the LA Superior Court, and to travel to oberlin, ohio and meet my BFF's baby nora, whom i absolutely adore (if you know me, you will know that i am a BABY STAYS IN THE CORNER-type of person, but this lil one is the exception.). i had committed to taking a japanese proficiency test, so even after i started my new job- i studied. now i know that i can do more to keep learning new things, even while working.

big plans for 2012: after much discussion, i have come up with a catchy acronym which summarizes my goals for this year. it is: Successful Austerity* & Socialization Strategy, better known as "SASS."
*inspired in part by facebook postings by my friend christine c., which juxtaposed descriptive sentences involving "AUSTERITY 2012" with a picture of a $4K pair of shoes. long live shoe sales.

photos from the 2nd Annual DJF Benefit, featuring william beckett (formerly of the academy is...), fun., and jack's mannequin/something corporate, have been posted to their official flickr.
