Oh hello past month! Let's see where you've been, because you've certainly not been on le blog...
- You were on the labor and delivery floor learning the miracles, smells, and beauty of birth for 12 or 24-hour shifts at a time
-You were taking your last tests of 3rd year.
-You were trying to tack down an amazing house to move into before you overstayed your welcome at the homeless medical student shelter (aka your extremely generous friends' gorgeous apartment).
- You were in Scotland (returning for the first time in 6 years! that's 72 in month time!) for the wedding of 2 wonderful, wonderful friends and a mini-reunion of more wonderful college friends.
-You were taken down and dragged across a beach for trying to wield a kite in Scottish winds.
Never underestimate Scottish winds.
-You shot the cover for your new concept album for your band Meeshpups and the Rugby Girls.
-You were packing your life into your car for the last time this year before fleeing the country for a month pre-amazing-house-move-in.
-You were jet-lagged...like comatose at 9pm jet-lagged.
-You were celebrating the end of the 3rd year of medical school. Unbelievable.
-You were hopping on a plane to Costa Rica knowing little more than you were going to Costa Rica and your amazing friends Connell and Melissa had organized everything.
-Ok, you were also seen worrying a little bit about all these crazy transitions! Fun can be overwhelming when it's been so long since you last saw it!
-You were living the dream for a week in a gorgeous house with gorgeous people 400m from the Costa Rican surf...and it was not the Real World!...it only resembled it some nights...except we had 2 pregnant ladies...and we usually went to bed at 9:30pm.
-You were zip-lining..apparently with a personal photographer, Bob the Builder gloves, and some attitude.
-You stayed in Costa Rica after everyone left...and although you've been elusive, you little month you, it's rumored you can currently be found in a Treehouse hostel, in a bathing suit you've been wearing all day, and you may have just opened some red wine and taken a swig straight from the bottle.
Because that's the kind of month you are.
And blogging or no blogging,
I think I like you.
“Traveling is a brutality. It forces you to trust strangers and to lose sight of all that familiar comfort of home and friends. You are constantly off balance. Nothing is yours except the essential things – air, sleep, dreams, the sea, the sky – all things tending towards the eternal or what we imagine of it.” – Cesare Pavese
