Over Exposed

Winter 2009.

I have to admit:
-I'm really over Winter
-I've put on Winter weight (mostly from homebaked cookies)
-The cold has chapped my skin AND my attitude
-My showers during the winter are not very Eco-friendly
-I have cabin fever
-Slipping on the morning ice in my driveway has gotten old
-I've accumulated a billion scarves (approximately)

Bottom line: I look forward to sun and warm breezes.

Change is inevitable. No matter how hard we try to sit still and absorb the current reality, everything is moving forward and changing. For the past 16-17 years of my life I have been in school, and in about 5 months all of that is going to change. I imagine I will go to graduate school at some point.

Where I am at right now is like sitting on the train as it rushes across the landscape. You move your head and focus on something external from the train, but then it blurs as it whips out of view and new things come rushing towards and past you.

Sunny Days

...I just need more sunny days. It's amazing how it boosts your mood and your outlook.

It's a fact, the sun makes you happy.

Previous Self-Portrait

This picture is from freshman year at WSU.
Hopefully my next post will be an updated self-portrait.

So, uh...I'm working on it.

These pictures are probably two years old (sophomore year of college). These pictures are also cheesy (esp. the picture of me). Rock climbing is my new addiction, and now that I have my own equipment the only thing that is holding me back from going all the time are the hours for the rock gym.
This new addiction has also caused me to dislike winter. I crave a sunny day so that I can actually go climb on some real rock, work on my tan, and enjoy the gratification of being productive with my body.

I've really lucked out this quarter. I'm taking really interesting classes, have an excellent part time job, and the time to go work out 3+ times a week.

I already feel great.

Cuddle Buddy

I miss having dogs underfoot.

I want to be at that point in my life where I can...
1. Love them to death
2. Walk them all the time
3.Spoon them at night
4. Not worry about cleaning crumbs off the floor
5.Have them love me unconditionally
6.Have them follow me everywhere
7. Rest their chin on my lap when I'm feeling sad
8. Take them hiking/camping
9.Have them greet me at the door
10. Take millions of pictures of them

(The photos are of Nikki (RIP) and Nula)

Ocean City

Not a bad picture for just balancing the camera on a huge piece of driftwood.

Oh, and Happy 2009!
