-IF THE MOON'S A BALLOON-



24. I like my food spicy and my aperture low.
Elizabeth and I were stuck at the border for much too long, but as soon as we crossed into the states, this happened and all of a sudden it was all worth it. 

p.s no filter needed.

A sanctuary of sorts. 🌾🎹

p.s I wish you could see Kimi and the gorgeous grand piano on which she is playing, but whatever, Instagram. Crop it how you want, I guess.

Pity Party Posting

I feel as if all I ever do lately is study and work.*

I don’t adventure anymore. I don’t take naps. I don’t go to Seattle or Portland. I don’t go to or host game nights. I don’t just booze around with friends.

I work. And I study. And I think about studying. And all I want to do is escape to the mountains. I want to go camping and rock climbing. But I can’t because I’m stuck without a car and too many responsibilities.

*I technically know this is not true because I still spend time with close friends and I went to a baseball game the other day and went on a run with a friend and I am reading a book for fun.

Oh, hello blog. How have you been?

Jessica and I bet a breakfast at Shakabrah on whether I get a valentine or not. She thinks someone is going to surprise me at work. I hope not, and not just because I want a free breakfast.

PRINT GIVE AWAY

bearschapter:

In this last year, I’ve felt rewarded with the support you guys have given me. And for that, I’d like to give away an 8x10 print of this image in hopes of spreading the fire a little more.

It’s pretty simple: leave your answer to my question below and a winner will be chosen tomorrow night…

Today I can drink delicious coffee any day I’d like (perks of being in the PNW). A year ago I was living in a small town in China, and while the adventures were amazing, the lack of coffee was sad. A year from now I’d like to be enticing my taste buds and exploring new lands before I go back to school. Istanbul or Hanoi Bay or Mt. Kilimanjaro or Machu Picchu?

Standing with my face to the sun allows me to reenergize on these PNW winter days. Lately I’ve been feeling overwhelmed with jobs and school and friends and missing family and even though taking a selfie in the sun won’t change any of those obligations, the warmth on my face calms me.

you’re not a girl,
you’re a waltz
you’re a canopy bed
you’re June to August
you’re the back and forth sway of the hammock all day.
