Burn Baby Burn

I'm about to learn a big lesson.
And I can't decide if I'd rather pick up the pieces, or sweep up the ashes from the total collapse.

I conclude with Tea

In the mountains of Washougal Washington, they have feet of snow. Some drifts are 7 feet high! We snowshoed around in it, made a cool snowcave, and of course drank plenty of hot tea.

I really enjoy how snow storms like this break up the routine. Instead of the everyday monotony, we are forced to slow down and work around nature's obstacle. When I really stop and think about it, I don't really have any place to go. So let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

Previous Snowstorms

This is why I hesitate to drive in the snow.

This for That

I will trade my textbooks for an umbrella and blanket on the beach.

...I'll even throw in my final essays for some waves and sea air.

December Time

These are pictures from last year when we went Christmas tree hunting. It's pretty much a Charlie Brown Christmas tree, but we cut it ourselves and it was nice.

And Nula likes to eat snow.

I vote for more live shows at tiny art galleries.

Now, I'm not a religious person at all. I have things that I believe in and some things that I don't. I have my own explanations for the way things are, and I also hold my own questions for the universe.
So regardless of the whole turkey deal, I am thankful for many things.

Some of them include:
-My unconditionally supportive family
-My friends. Who laugh with me, and know when it's okay to laugh at me.
-The opportunity I have had my entire life for my first rate education
-The fact that I live and breathe in a free country
-The good fortune to have all my senses fully functional and aware so that I soak up the world around me (I could have just typed 'Health')
-Music, the soundtrack to my life (cliche)
-Having today
-Always having tomorrow.

Shameless Advertising

Did you know, in some places around the world beer is cheaper than bottled water?

It's true.

And tasty.

Never ending...

Today just keeps going on forever, and just when I think I've caught up with everything spinning around me I'm knocked off balance and remain one step behind everything that needs to get done. I love school, but sometimes I can't focus on anything. Not even things worth procrastinating over.
This blog is the most focus I have put in anything today.

Merrily Merrily

Everyone in Amsterdam rides their bike while smoking a cigarette and holding an umbrella.

I remember floating on my back in the pool in the middle of a Cypriot village watching the Dragonflies dart across the water, eating the little bugs. I also remember sitting at meals and looking at the dusty hills behind the cathedral.

The heat that would make you sweat, even if you were just sitting still.

It doesn't take much for me to close my eyes and remember this place, on these drippy Seattle days.

I would rather go fly a kite.

OBAMA... my president.

Ignore the Horizon

Good bye summer.

I really do miss laying in the grass.

Corn Maize

Went up north to a farm and did some traditional Autumn activities. The corn maze was cool, it was a maze that has the donkey and elephant on an american flag. The sign said "mildly" political. There were no dead ends, but it was large enough to run around and have fun.

Other things I have done today to prepare myself for this season:
1.Put my flannel sheets on my bed.
2.Drank apple cide. The GOOD stuff.
3.Wore wool socks.

Some cute kids playing with some cute animals too.

I am also a fan of the picture of the sun through the corn stalks.

This is a picture I took when in Cyprus this summer.

I've never tried lizard before, but this cat didn't make it look too bad.
