Well now that I've got your attention, let's get down to business. I'll keep it fairly concise.
It's been a big year for me. I've moved way out of my comfort zone with both my job and current location, and as a young person have learned a lot about myself in the process. Most importantly? Having the mindset to just go for it. I realized for far too long I wasn't taking much initiative when it came to seeking out what I wanted. So, I made a change and just decided to do a simple thing--ask. It got me my job, helped me make new friends in a new place, and overall has been the best thing I've ever done. Sure you get shot down sometimes, but at least you won't be tossing and turning at night asking yourself "what if". It's the reason why I decided to go for it and move to London this coming fall, too.
Secondly, my father had a heart attack recently (and survived GO POPS!). It was a very sobering moment for me to realize that my parents won't be around forever. So, for all of you out there who still have your parents--make sure to let them know you love them.
Third, here's a list of my latests:
Book: Dune by Frank Herbert. In the meat of it right now so don't spoil it for me.
Album: Ma Fleur by The Cinematic Orchestra. According to Spotify I'm at 124 play throughs so needless to say, give it a listen!
Food: Coconut chicken curry. Hot damn.
Parting note: Write a letter to someone you care about. I wrote a letter every day in the month of March to someone who is important in my life, and it was an incredible experience. It made me sit down and reflect on my friendships, and it also made every single person's day I wrote to when they received it (because who writes letters anymore?)
Stay awesome out there and make sure to give me a shout if you're in CB or London!
