trying to slow down. failing. having fun anyway.

i’m not really trying to slow down. i’m actually working more than ever right now academically and creatively–but i’m trying to do it with more purpose. put in more pauses for reflection. i want the work to be good. really good. better than really good.

on top of doing amazing research, writing, and painting, fun things over the last few weeks include…
*our garage got a second story thanks to these two dudes:

*i had another bike accident (considered posting gnarly pictures of my cuts and bruises…) decided after 2 bike accidents, my bike was cursed (and that: yes, i’m still clumsy). my bff alex built me a new one:

*the following weekend, C surprised me by trading in my 2007 GTI for a new one. best present ever.

*the drywall in the downstairs was completed and primed. C promptly set up shop in the kitchen building motorcycles:

*taught C how to use my industrial sewing machine and helped him with a few basic pattern building things so he could start making his own motorcycle seats:

*like this one:

*visited my beautiful sister who is expecting her second baby any time. this tops everything.

life is good.
