what a week.

this past week was all over the place. started a new job at a massage clinic. which was fine, not nearly busy enough. and they're kind of disorganized. worked at acusport and blue lotus. matt's in NZ, and i'm wicked jealous! let's see, also got another job at a different spa, doing massage- which i have training for today. i'm pretty sure i'm never going to have any free time until i leave san diego, at this rate...

other than that, watched the NZ v ENG rugby game, and clearly NZ won. it was better than last week's game - they played a bit tighter and more fluidly - it was fun to watch. also got to hang out with jeremy and some of his friends yesterday at his place which was great. haven't gotten to see him since he went to china so it was a good time. i miss that kid. just finished a 14 day detox and happy to be done with that!

in other news, EMILY GETS HERE TONIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i can't wait. i'm kind of in disbelief that she is ACTUALLY moving here. it's so crazy. i'm so excited. though, i have NO time this week, and so don't know how much i will get to see her :(. but hopefully we can squeeze in lunch tomorrow!

and that's pretty much the story. life from here on out is going to be BUSY BUSY BUSY and a little chaotic, and so much to still figure out and plan, and it freaks me out a little to think about it too much... so on that note, i must be off to a meeting and then training and then work...

get out the map and lay your finger anywhere down...

got out of san diego today. it was great - went just outside of Julian, CA (about an hour northeast) and hiked to cedar creek falls. it was a good hike, and beautiful falls with a big punchbowl at the bottom!

my heart was deep space and my head was maths

well, the last month has been all over the place. most of it i spent back east on a trip of varied sorts. first i went to boston, got to hang with dr. graciela for a day, had dinner with dawn and dave and then craig picked me up and we headed west to amherst. i got to meet with his favorite prof, betsey, and hung out in his house for a few days. definitely brought back the memories, kegs and beirut in the middle of the afternoon... it was echoes of 40... speaking of, it was just my 5-year college reunion. WHEN DID THAT HAPPEN??!!?? (i didn't go, but still). hung with craig for a few days til the family arrived for graduation. then we packed up and drove home to MD, the next morning in the newly unloaded car, i repacked and headed down to the outer banks, NC to spend the week there prior to Sarah and Michael's wedding!

A-MAZE-ING. it's been 4 years since i've been to the OBX, and goddamn, i've missed it. there's just something about that place... and while some has changed and it's definitely more crowded than it used to be, it's still got that feeling. it was just such a joy to be there again, not to mention to be with all the beach people, too! weird that we weren't all together in one house, but so great to spend time with everyone. the wedding was absolutely gorgeous, and it was an honor to be a part of that - thank you mike and sarah :) you both were wonderful, and i wish you much happiness and joy :). anyway, i have approximately a million pictures, here ya go:

Sarah and Michael's Wedding

after a wonderful week at the beach, craig and i headed up to c'ville to see dad, karina and kian for a couple days. we also got to grab dinner with judy, wayne and the kids, so great to see you all! i'm sorry it was so short and we hardly got to catch up... you're just going to have to come visit me out in portland when i move :). i luckily, also caught up with court for a couple of hours - which was great. can't believe it's been a year since i saw her at dawn and dave's wedding! it's never enough time... but then it was back to MD for the night (where we had no power and i got to play in the dark for hours by myself...) and then off to the airport the next morning and back to the west coast.

and now i'm back in san diego, and the realization kind of hit me when i was away, about how soon i'm really leaving and how much i need to accomplish before then...eeeek! as far as good to be home? eh... i don't know, san diego has never really felt like home, and still doesn't. great to see my puma again, and my friends, but i can't say i really missed here...
