  5. April 11th-12th:

    -broke my beer-free streak for an old favorite

    -Bombay Bicycle Club in Sacramento. I LOVE THEM THE MOST. It was so loud and perfect and their music makes my heart feel all the things. Mostly bass because it was really loud but other stuff too.

    -today is Picnic Day aka DAVIS GOES CRAZY DAY. We were in the parade I was the Demeter the Goddess of Grain and I boxed Dionysus in a true Grape vs Grain fashion and there were people dressed as grapes and hops and barley and it was a great morning. BUT I AM SO TIRED.

    -napped for forever, Dee was ready for us to be awake again.

    -currently: finishing coconut yogurt with amarena cherries (UNFKSJDF) and walnuts in it and wishing it would never end, contemplating watching Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones today but I don’t know if I can sleep ever again, in need of a shower to wash dirt and blood off (boxing as a Greek god is serious business), and grateful for levity.

  9. This is my life now. 10 weeks til brewing diploma exam. I really love this schedule because it’s pretty open and I’m only TAing twice a week and I have 2 more brew days for my research and then it’s just write and compile data and study and practice TED talk and make presentation for conference in Chicago in June and IT’S STILL SO MUCH. 

    I might start a new blog. I might not. I might change the name of this one, I might not. I don’t know. I need a place to write about things, without so much agency. Anyways.

    I can’t stop buying tank tops that say shit on them. This one says, “But first, coffee.” Thx, lookhuman.

    I’m doing Baptiste’s 40 days to personal revolution (what up, day 8) and considering giving up chocolate for the next 33 days. A typical day’s food log seems to include chocolate chips with every meal. I don’t know if I can do it. But I love this program, I love being accountable for meditation, and I love the community at my studio and the women doing the program with me. A lot of my students are older and a lot of them treat me like one or their own kids and I’m so grateful for the love.

    Things feel better, and then they don’t, and then they do again. Practicing presence.

  10. Monday Positivity:

    Slowly but surely things are starting to feel a little better. I had a really busy weekend (Picnic Day is next week and it’s a Davis-wide celebration in which there is a parade and I will be dressed up as the Goddess of Grains battling the God of Grapes. There are also going to be people in hops & barley & grapes costumes and overall ridiculousness) and lots of stuff to do at the yoga studio and it was really nice to come home after all of that.

    Today’s plan:

    -study study study study study study (emphasis on colloidal stability and color of beer)



    -start practicing my TEDx talk. AKSDFJ


    -blow up new pool floaty because it’s going to be 80. then study some more pool side. 

    -as much Dee cuddling as possible.


  11. brb, need more.

  14. Davis was super beautiful today. It was sunny and lightly raining (well, sometimes lightly raining, other times downpours) and I’m so grateful I got to spend 2 years of my life in this place.

    I made my favorite dinner tonight. After a few days of having Pirate’s Booty as part of (every) balanced meal and meals including things like donuts and the most Indian food I have ever eaten (never ordering delivery again. Minimum purchase charges do not a one person meal make) it felt good to go to the grocery store and get my favorite green things. Blasted broccoli, kale chips, quinoa with hoisin, sambal, beer mustard.

    I’m grateful Dee still loves me. I’m grateful M is still here. I’m grateful for laundry and studying packed Friday nights, and I’m grateful I get to share two meals with friends tomorrow. It’s amazing how everyone has a story, once you’re willing to open up and be honest with them. I am so ashamed of what happened that I didn’t want anyone to know, nor did I feel like I really deserve anyone’s support, but it got just a tiny bit easier when I asked for help.

    Thank you guys for your kind words. I’m really grateful for this community, for internet hugs, for everything. Thank you.
