Thanks Summer


Hope you had a great Summer, because mine has been nothing less than…fascinating and heart crushing.

Yes, fascinating, it’s just been interesting, it’s given a good handful of change. Ups aaaannnnd downs. As another Autumnal season starts, so soon does another chapter. Chapter 32 (that’s how old I turned this June).  


This Summer I ventured on a little trip to Portland with Emily, spent quality time with friends – HI LADIES!  Got to spend some time with my beautiful nieces nephew and family, went on a trip to Mexico City (by the way it’s pretty awesome), and I have a few really great work/career opportunities that are blossoming. Then of course there were the days where it felt like life withered away in bed while I lazily gazed at the ceiling.

My summer has consisted of lots of food related work out side of a restaurant or commercial kitchen. It’s also been fairly quiet, with lots of contemplative days and nights. It’s odd to have spent the past few years as a line cook, rotating through jobs within the industry trying to find that groove. Often times wondering if I was on the right path.  I think I finally found my groove. Between here and there I have spent time at the beach, chasing sun, figuring out new bus lines, reading, and trying to find an affordable apartment or studio in San Francisco.

I often talk about balance. So strong have I been in trying to find this balance in my life, and it seems so much more elusive.  More than anything this summer was learning about acceptance; validity with my emotions, career choices and self.


It’s all nice ol’ rickety roller coaster.

  1. Just wanted to let you know that by introducing me to that Shonen Knife song you have made my world, and therefore everyone’s world, a better place. 🙂
