It’s hard to see you and still keep all my guts inside.

The babe I stayed with in Guatemala made his way to Jersey last week. He let me let him in and changed my mind all around. I’m flying to Canada in 2 weeks!

Hey, I'm wondering if I know you because I live in jersey and I saw that you do too, and you have some accidental seabirds quotes and I go to a lot of their shows!

It’s very possible! TR South 2010. Accidental Seabirds are most definitely one of my favorite bands!

Things My Boss Says: #1

"Today your job is to make it look like we care"

the After-Travel Bug

I’ve been bumming really hard since I got home. I’m missing the sun and the volcanoes and the smiles and the holas. My motivation is gone, my energy level stayed in Central America, I’ve cried everyday,
and if it weren’t for this freshly roasted Guatemala coffee
I never would have put forth the effort to finally apply for my college diploma, pick up seeds and start planting, acquire my own greenhouse, narrow down my 5 picks for Universities next Spring, research overseas internships, set up days to start tutoring again, and tell my boss I’m ready to get back to work.

My mom took our oldest cat babe to be put to sleep tonight. She stopped purring a few days ago, but she started again tonight when my mom decided it was time to take her to the vet. It’s interesting how suffering works; it’s almost like she knew it was soon to be over.

The first seeds are planted. Spring is just around the corner, Emily.

The truth is that I never wanted to wash you off of me
I feel a little more empty each time

eeeeemily:

I try so hard for other people I end up tearing myself up. I don’t need crummy people in my life. And if that means there are no people in my life, so be it. That’s what books and canvas and yoga mats are for. The right people will come along.

Be patient, Emily. Good things happen to good people…

This again.
