Destination: France

bonjour! je suis (avec ma soeur) en France! it was a long trip to get here and ive had less than 3h of sleep, but it is well worth the trouble! (and the trouble was half the fun!) im currently im Lyon just finishing my late dinner of meat and wine with a side of ice cream for dessert!

here's a tidbit from the "Journey" to France:

step one

Im back!...Sort of
and yes, I'm a cat named muffins.
ok, not really, this is me:
(with short hair, but still me)
I Know...not as cute as muffins

so, I am back but here's the catch, I do't know how I want to do things on this blog anymore. I'm not very fond of this "everyday blog-posting" thing because frankly, there's not always something interesting to post, and more importantly it takes away from my excitement to post something when there is something awesome!

The story.
when I'm gone (from this blog, that is) I feel sort of liberated. I have the freedom to do what I want and not blog about it. But the longer I stay away, the more I miss it. (and it's been nearly 2 weeks this time!)
but since I broke my number of day chain, I don't know where/how to start when I get back to posting, so I don't. Even on the awesome adventures I've had(ie camping, getting contacts, beaching), I haven't posted a thing.

I created this blog as a creative release. To motivate art/activity and to write about my life.
but I took on wayyy too many things on at once. I took on a day to day deadline to post something interesting. I wanted you to know about my endeavors whilst training as well as crafting and decorating and baking and photos. I was going to school and working and already having a hard time fitting "life" in my tight schedule. So every now and then I "lost hope" and gave up. I'm not allowing myself to go down that road again.

I love blogging. It's one of my real passions. but I need to do this the right way.

So I am back, but things are going to be a lot different.

Step one:

  1. from now on, there is no blog count.

Why? because that's not the point. there's no race to the how many posts I have. I should really start thinking about content rather than the rush to the next post.

and now here's a questionnaire:

give me some tips. I know all of you are real pro blog-readers/writers and I know you can give some awesome input.

where am I lacking?
what do you like about my blog?
what do you want to see more of?

This is what I've been up to. ART.
Three days of bliss. NO work, No school...this is the life.

but I guess three days is not that long, tomorrow will be the last (and even today I had to study for finals) but at least I had some ME time that was way over-do.

I cleaned my craft room and organized some things.

Th photo above is of a box (almost finished) that I made for my fabric (trying to make everything in my room pretty) I got the idea from this post on a beautiful mess. I love the color combo and the geometric shapes are da bomb!

I'll give u a shot of the finish product and let me know if you want a tutorial!

I had work from 12 till 9 today and boy was that crazy!

The Cafe had a party for it closed around 5ish for the dinner set-up.

I was one of two cooks and holly camolly, making dinner for 50 people by orrde can get pretty hectic!

all-in-all, it was a good and long day!

3 mi run easy

YES that's right y'all! I went for my first run in 3 weeks! I loved every second of it!

I had NO ACHES and made pretty good time (though I made it slow to be sure not to injure)

241st-mini climb

seriously, there was nothing too special about this day.

I worked 'till 8pm and later hung out with my dad. then headed to the gym to climb for about 30 min (yay!)

Loren bought stools for our house and now we can eat at the counter instead of on the couch, big improvement.

I'm planning for my TREE DAYS OFF next week (monday tuesday wednesday) and here's what I have so far.

  • surf the small waves
  • hike 
  • yoga
  • climbing gym
  • take pictures of things I like

Ok,well, I guess SOMETHING happened today...

What do you think?

242nd-Core Class

My new addiction: Core Class with Amy.

My aunt and I are now weekly regulars. I love the vibe, Love the burn, and I love the time of day.

Getting a good workout before 9 always makes for a good day. Even though I have work around 12, I end up getting more done before then because of this class. Today I even squeezed in some climb and blogging. Awesome!

This is added to my list of things I'm keeping n my training schedule =]

Thank you for listnening. also, for this summer I plan to

  • road trips (at least 3)
  • camping
  • climb/boulder day trips
  • surfing
  • hikes in yosemite/pinnacles
  • FRANCE (3 weeks)
  • work
  • sun tan
This is my first real summer of travel and fun since I started college. I am so sosososososososososos excited.

Any other fun summery suggestions?

243rd-last thing

The last thing I wanted to do today was go to school.
The sun was shining, there was a little breeze, and the ocean was glittering with the sun's reflection. And, Loren was suiting up around 10 for a nice morning surf and the LAST THING I wanted to do was pack my bag and head to school.
But I did. And I'm glad.

It's one of the last days of "real school" and come on... It's the least I could to actually show up.

And well, I was really happy to ride my bike, even though it was really hott.

Only two Finals left.

wish me luck!

this is where I want to be this summer:
