Life lately has been a hilarious mix of funny events, wild emotions, and dramatic weather. I’ve lived my weekends out of bags and my week in the a variety of places too. I’ve thought a good deal about the big, scary future and feel that I really have no idea what is in store. I know with confidence, it’ll be something I never dreamed of doing and in a place I haven’t ever considered.And I’m excited. I’m ready for a challenge and ready to take on just about anything right now.
Maybe its all inspired by the new warm weather and the snow and ice slowly melting away, or maybe its just the constant reminder Spring is near. . . and with it comes a whole new set of possibilities.

The moment I get off work tonight, I’ll be in my car –> Davidson. I am so ready to be home.
These happy days have been filled with all that is good and simple and wild. Last night, Alyssa and I drove to Norwood, NC for dinner with Ma-Maw and Da-Dan and TT. I promised A an adventure, but little could have prepared us for the drive back to Carrboro. We spent an additional hour and a half, laughing, screaming, and even crying after getting lost and having to follow the most absurd detour ever. . . We made it home eventually. Victorious.
A and my long [hilly] run was followed by lots of coffee and a big avocado and breakfast burrito. . . plus. . . hennawith Katieand A, more food, and avoiding doing the work I really should be doing. . .

Sam and Ryan came to Carrboro//Chapel Hill over the weekend. Sam received good news from UNC and he might be coming here in the fall!
It started snowing Friday morning and it’s been cold and icy ever since.
On Friday, we avoided the world and watched movies [this + this] and I made up a recipe for pumpkin soup [+ in the process, I fell in love with my new immersion blender. Thanks momma!].
On Saturday, we slept in, drank a lot of coffee and tea, and ate lunch with Amirah at Milltown.
Worked a lot this weekend but was lucky and even got to play a little too. . .
“Experience life in all possible ways —
good-bad, bitter-sweet, dark-light,
summer-winter. Experience all the dualities.
Don’t be afraid of experience, because
the more experience you have, the more
mature you become.” – Osho
