My apartment is so freaking hot. Ugh. I (obviously) don't have AC, and 90% of the time you don't need it in southern California; the weather is usually perfect. But this global warming shit is real. This heat is freaking intolerable. Jason and I dog-sat for a friend of his, and they have AC. So, we stayed there for a few days. Whew. I got spoiled! Now I'm back at home, sitting in my undies (sometimes in my birthday suit), with all the windows open, the ceiling fan and box fan going, and STILL miserable. Side note: While my windows are open, the blinds are closed. This way the neighbors don't see me laid out naked.

Ok, so my brother Dylan lives in this little courtyard of bungalows. Jason lives with him. And their neighbors, and our friends, are moving into a house they just bought. So...I'm thinking I should maybe apply to live there. My lease is up, and it would be nice to live right by both my brother and my boyfriend. There are some downsides, such as no parking. Jason said he would actually move in with me. Gah! Too many factors. I might be moving in the spring. I will have to think a little more about this.

Look^^^, that there is Teddy. He is a Chihuahua puppy. He is soooo teeny! 

On Thursday my brother, his wife, Jason and I went to Aztec Falls. Wow. This place was beautiful! It's this place in the San Bernadina mountains. Getting to the actual falls was a bit of an...adventure. We knew the hike was going to be challenging, but man, that shit was intense! The last part you have to essentially scale a mountain. Ok, maybe not that bad, but seriously! I had to sit on my butt and grab branches and rocks to keep from tumbling down the mountain. When you finally get to the falls, you can either leap off a 15ft cliff into the water, or slide down a slippery and crazy rock formation. Well, we had our clothes on and we were carrying all kinds of crap, so we had to do the latter. When we finally got to the beach, I was so tired. Bethany - my sister-in-law - and I stripped and leaped into the water immediately. It felt to good! I then worked up the courage to climb the rocks so I could jump off the cliff. Bethany went first. I was pretty scared! I was shaking, and the only other people there were trying to tell us exactly where to jump because there is only a small area that is safe to jump into. Well, I did it! I counted to three and leaped. It was scary, but so much fun! Jason stood up there for about 30 minutes gathering the courage to jump, and he finally did. Dylan...decided he didn't want to jump.

The craziest part was getting back up the mountain. As I was about to climb the rocks, I saw a GIANT rattlesnake!!! I was so scared! And there was no way around it, so we had to carefully climb over it. By the time we got to the trail - and I  say that loosely, because that shit was steep - I was pretty shaken up. I had a moment. You know what I mean? A moment. I burst into tears saying I couldn't make it back up. My muscles were so sore, they got all wobbly and I felt like I couldn't take another step. But Jason is awesome. He took all of my bags and I eventually made it up. I'll tell you what though, I was in the most pain the following three days! I've never been that sore, ever!
