since we last spoke. . .

sincewelastspoke{chalk wall in the atelier at hort woods}

\\ i listened to two records, cyclically:

    • for the belting out + dancing around + snapping: father john misty, fear fun.
    • for eveningtimes (mainly making dinner) + dancing around (‘cause i never don’t dance around. . . thatsrightdoublenegative): calexico, algiers.

// i took a break slash got distracted from the clmooc, because. . .

\\ i jaunted all over the state of pennsylvania. the jaunting looked something like this: philadelphia, state college, myo beach, state college, myo beach, state college, philadelphia, state college. whew! p.s. i’m going back to myo beach in two days : )

// i continued to work on my current art piece (prompted by personal explorations during the clmooc) in spurts, but still didn’t return to the clmooc. . . it became too hard to keep up with all of the interaction and my brain got overwhelmed, so i retreated into my art.

\\ lots of paperwork nonsense. . . ugh. but this included becoming an official pennsylvania resident!

\\ i hung out with some of my favorite people in the world. that was preeeeetty great. yay for closer proximity!

// i turned 26.

\\ i ate some affogato.

// i watched this approximately one million times because i have a major soft spot for righteous kids + music! SO good.

\\ dainty became my favorite word to describe my current aesthetic interests.

// i read two really good books about spirituality + a road trip: they made me contemplate life’s ‘why’s’ instead of ‘how’s.’ whatelseisnew?

\\ i got some really good snail mail! (people, email is good but parcels + post are better!)

// i pridefully wore a party hat made of impeccably crafted pom poms at a birthday lunch with some really special ladies:
