Saturday Adventure

Saturday was sweaty. R. had work filming a baseball game and I had to brave the crowds of the mall for pantyhose and a blazer (eck). Mutual sweat and Saturday angst lead, however, happily to a lunch at PK Noodles and an unplanned drive to Big Talbot, or, the land before time. Behold!

Our Doppelgangers, circa 1951



My last shift at Whole Foods. Sad but excited for the next thing - I've met so many awesome people and made so many great friends, I am going to miss them!

Such devastation. I can't even begin to imagine how it would feel to lose everything from old photos to bobby pins, parents and pets. Everything.


R and I were dropping clothes off at My Brother's Keeper yesterday and happened upon two bicycles - a Hawthorne and a Free Spirit. New tubes on the Free Spirit and we are good to go!


These Sound Good to Make

Averie’s Raw Vegan Chocolate Coconut Snow Balls
1.5 cups shredded coconut
3/4 c maple syrup (or agave to be technically raw)
3/4 c cocoa powder
Dash Vanilla Extract
Optional: 1/4 c coconut oil (I used it and encourage it!)
Optional: 1/4 c chia seeds (did not use it in today’s blend)

(from Love Veggies and Yoga)

Maybe a treat to make when I am feeling better! Sick again with a stomach bug this time, no fun.



On Repeat

The definition of success -
Learning how to define one's own happiness--
-The worth of time, of money

A professor of mine once said, in regards to art making, "You learn to live with the ambiguity". I think this is, however, applicable to all of life. At an old 23 and a young 25, we are sifting through our idealism, our wishes and wants, but much more importantly, our needs. We can cherry pick houses with porches and idealize unknown golden careers, wish for station wagons - really those are just minute details to make the future seem concrete, safe even. The road to self fulfillment however, is rarely safe and generally unpaved. And now - this recently graduated limbo, this time of penance for past and present laziness - might be tomorrow, but is not the future.
