I realize it's been six months since I've posted here. I regret that; blogging is something I really want to pursue, but I haven't been able to get a solid foothold on it yet. I'll get there one day. In the meantime, life has been happening, and I've been trying to soak in every second of it so I'll continuously have things to write about--
--like the sensation of wind cooling my wet hair as I swim with friends in a heated pool in Panama City Beach,
like the solo walks from my classroom to the town coffee shop half a mile away, returning with cold brew in my hand for the next morning,
like the time I hiked with my friends into the mountains of Boulder, CO with 16 oz. of water and a granola bar that didn't last, and when we got back to town I devoured a gluten-free turkey and pesto-mayo sandwich from Lindsay's Boulder Deli after quenching my thirst (best.sandwich.ever),
like that time I ran splashing into the shallows of the Atlantic with my friends at 3:30 a.m. and it was fifty degrees,
like that time I leaned back against the hood of my car on a cold night during winter break and watched meteors slice paths between the stars, a blanket around my shoulders and a hot mug of tea between my palms,
like that time I realized just how much I love my little corner of the world and just how much I want to explore the beauty and diversity and poetry that is the rest of it.
Life is constantly offering things to write about, friends. Let's be sure to keep an eye out for them.
In other news, I'm looking forward to a trip to the Pacific Northwest this summer, and I'm hoping/prepping to launch a public Instagram account - for writing and life and anything exciting or preciously ordinary - in the near future. (My love for Instagram is undying). Stay tuned!

It's been a while. Let's catch up. What's been a highlight of your last six months? I'd love to hear about it in the comments!
