It’s hard for me to believe I haven’t posted here since June. It feels like just yesterday I was sitting on a hotel room floor at 4AM, struggling to write about my Dad. Turns out that was a lot of yesterdays ago, and so many things have happened since then.
Jason and I on our first day in Salem, about 13 months ago.
I realized I’ve been in Salem for a whole year already, which makes me think about how quickly time is passing, and how I should be living my life as much as possible.
So I visited Cancun, where it occurred to me that I do miss the beach and the sun and the tourists of Florida, but only a little bit.

I moved into a new apartment on the fifth floor of an old building. It’s been painful for my thighs, but good for my outlook.

My little brother, who is one of my favorite people in the universe, came to visit for a week. He’s currently into Japanese robots, so I spent the week driving to strange and fascinating collectible shops around Boston.

I celebrated my six year anniversary with Jason, and was once again stunned and grateful that he’s tolerated me for so long.

I also worked a ridiculous number of hours for some incredible clients, got completely burnt out, and did practically nothing for a week.

I’m just now pulling out of this slump, and recovering from the life overload that the past few months have been.
That’s my summer so far; how’s your summer going?
