-house hunting all the time
-grateful for M and my family for taking us in during house hunt
-finish the thesis!
Life in bullet points:
Things are changing, in such big and crazy ways, but towards such good things. I’m really sad to leave California, and I take that as an indication of how incredible the last two years have been. The people I’ve met (hi, M), the things I’ve learned about beer and food and what I really like, the yoga family that took me in and let me grow as a teacher and as a student and who was there for me when things got really shitty. Taking a chance to move away from my family and home was the best thing I ever did, and I’m so excited to return to Colorado, this time with an extra human. <3
Namaste means “my soul recognizes yours” not “I tripped really hard at a festival once and now I’m filled with the wisdom of the Earth”
My thesis is open. 30 Rock is on. M is doing focusy stuff. All I need to do is write write write and then it will be done.
I think I’ll grab a beer, first. Sometimes you need beer to write beer. And chocolate.
It blows my mind that the Bay Area is actually cold this time of year.
Jet lag, you mean jerk.
I don’t want to nap right now
Behold the highest quality photo of all the photos because I am an artist. We are living in Berkeley for the next few weeks a la Airbnb and our friend is also living with us and I don’t think I have ever been more excited to share a tiny space with two other people. I missed this like crazy. M was waiting for me at the airport and I was struggling with all of my bags because packing light is so uncool and my heart just exploded when I saw him because LOVE AND blah blah blah but really.
I’m struggling a little today because thesis is still a thing (just a thing that I need to just do. Is there a book or something amazing that will change my life on how productive I perceive myself to be? I really need it.) and I keep getting lost all the time and I spent 3 hours on the phone this morning because my phone wouldn’t work after coming back BUT at the end of the day I get to eat the polar opposite of dorm food and listen to M play guitar and look at houses and get all sweaty in yoga classes and explore.
-11 hours is a lot of hours on a plane.
-my professor is also on this plane. I told him I would work on my thesis to sound impressive but he said there’s no way he’s getting any work done so here I am, Tumblring and listening to A Clash of Kings.
-just a million percent full of gratitude for the last month. My heart hurts for the people I don’t get to see every day anymore but I’m so happy to have met them and gotten to explore the UK together.
-2 weeks til Colorado, until then shacked up in Berkeley with M. I said goodbye to my apartment in Davis before I left, major kudos to M for succeeding in moving everything out.
-this has been a pointless update.
-last thing: I have many small packets of Nutella and they are keeping me sane. Sorry, guy next to me, for the gruesome show I put on every time I feast on one.
