there are currently 20 drafts in my blog library that i have started only to abandon halfway through. each one providing me an outlet to express some of my thoughts and dig my way out of the hole i was in. that hole is something i would like to write about at some point, when it feels right and when i am willing to rip the bandaid off.
in the meantime i feel like posting some pictures and updating my little space here on the internet. it’s providing me with a nice distraction from writing up some of my research.
here’s a little photo recap of the past 4 months.
at the end of may/early june, i somehow gained 15lbs seemingly overnight, as captured below. i also had two gnarly skin infections that i think were caused purely from stress.
i went to san diego to visit my dad and teri. i was having a tough time.
then i went to detroit to see my mom, 2 of my aunts and my uncle. things were starting to look up and i lost 10 of the extra pounds.
these two kept me moving forward when i could barely get out of bed.
i went to minnesota to visit this guy while he worked at the fair.
and went for a walk and chat with trisha while i was there.
i went to chicago with school and got to hangout and laugh with RC and Russ (both not pictured)
i got back on my bike to visit the oreo cows. although admittedly, i have only ridden twice since kona.
played in the mud with this crazy
both of my bike rides were captured.
we endured some epic rainfall, that devastated parts of our state and left us unharmed.
i went to philadelphia to visit family and saw the liberty bell.
i drove to nashville to see my dad who was there for work and spent the entire drive home with my jaw dropped from fall color overload!
i joined snapchat and continued to laugh at betty’s antics.
i cheered for jared as he raced a half marathon on halloween in his undies and placed 2nd overall.
enjoying fall with my furry monster and have lost the extra weight i gained this summer.
