The One Where I Return to California: June 2019

Wednesday, June 05th- May was an exhausting month, which is why it’s taken me five days to start this monthly recap. I needed a break. With the end of the play, saying goodbye to Meg, and changing a myriad of things in my life right now, I’ve been pretty busy. Today started off pretty slow, with my normal early wake up call and a few hours in a bakery to get some studying done. As it progressed, however, more and more activities began to accumulate. I went to an open mic at the campus coffee shop and heard many talented musicians, and went to a band concert to hear another friend sing before realizing that one of my friends from high school was performing as well. After hearing him do his thing, Kiana and I hurried to the student film festival to see my roommate’s screening of her film. It’s been a rather crazy day, but I’m so thankful to have been surrounded by so much creativity.

Tuesday, June 11th - Today was not a fun one. I had to say goodbye to some dear friends for the summer, and that’s never a good time. Still, I’m trying to remember the wise words of Winnie the Pooh, saying “How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.”

Sunday, June 23rd - Today I drew dragons with a three year old, held a sleeping newborn for the first time ever, and walked through the ocean for the first time in over a year (too long to go). Sometimes going back to where I grew up isn’t so bad.

Tuesday, June 25th - I had forgotten how much of A Wrinkle in Time is spent referencing science and math. This trip to the Griffith Observatory became quite nostalgic for double the reasons. Of course, there was also the traditional twirl on the front lawn that quickly turned into an homage to the tesseract.
