The list

I sort of let summer slide by me this year and already I’ll be at work next Monday.

So here’s a list I need to keep me accountable.

- Design, print, and bind two copies Europe trip. Gift one to mom.
- Take scholarship mentor out for lunch or dinner because 4 years is a long time and he’s supported me from day one.
- Hit up Kyle / mentor and let him know I’ve graduated! Lunch/dinner if he’s back in CA.
- Clean my room. Good god. I’ve unpacked 75% of the way, let’s do 100%.
- Keep updating my personal site. Include responsive features. Include latest projects. Include blog.
- Catch up. No more “let’s do next week!” anymore.

My friend Conner Frey just released his first ever EP!

I feel so fortunate to have met this kid. I was able to work with him at COE and watch him work his magic on everything. He’s an incredibly bright individual and constantly inspires me. I’m bummed he’s leaving for USC and won’t ever be back in Davis BUT I’m so proud of him because he truly is one of the only individuals I know who sets his mind on his goals and accomplishes them. 

Please check out his EP and send him some love!

There’s no such thing as a perfect anything. And that’s absolutely fine with me.

One of the best things about traveling across the world or just traveling is that you can be whoever you want to be. I remember seeing a quote close to this and didn’t understand it. I was traveling at the time and now that I’m back “home”, I finally understand. 

We’re constantly labeling ourselves and all the people around us. Traveling leaves us as strangers, wandering and wondering about the world. Travel makes us better people. We’re nicer, we’re kinder with our words, we’re more interested, we’re more open. I think part of it is because we don’t completely throw all our beliefs onto someone we meet right away. The people we constantly interact with where our “normal” lives are, forget that. 

Maybe it’s just the culture here too. I like the being anonymous. You can be anyone and it doesn’t matter: it being status, power, money, knowledge, time, truth, love, fear, and so on. 

It’s an amazing feeling to just be.

I miss waking up everyday with a full itinerary in hand with a high chance of getting lost but never bored.
