I don't know what to title this. So...uh...Life Right Now.

The cliffs at Solana Beach, in a semi-remote spot we found. So beautiful, so peaceful.
It feels like years since I've done a normal post. Not a specialized event post, no memes, just plain "this is what life is."  So...this is what life is at the moment:
  • I'm incredibly psyched for football season to start up. I think I'm going to head out to one of the open Chargers practices this week or next. Anyone in the area want to meet up there, I'm down!
  • Not so psyched on the lack of job. Discouraged a bit, but...working on it. As much as I don't want to do it, I think I may apply for an editorial internship (unpaid). Money is nice, but experience needs to count, too.
  • Unfortunately, one of my Lolos suffered a heart attack and had to undergo emergency quadruple bypass surgery. But the good news is that he responded well and by the second day out of surgery was already up and walking around the hospital! He's always been spry for his age (which is only the early 70s anyway), so it's nice to know he's getting back to his old self. Hopes and good thoughts his way are appreciated!
  • I started playing tennis about 2 months ago and am proud to say that, in the words of my brother, I "do not suck"!  Hurrah!  The family used to play a lot back in Belgium, and I did it for my PhysEd requirement in 10th grade, but it has definitely been awhile since picking up a racket. I forgot how much I enjoy it, and I like that I did not die yesterday while playing 1-on-2 against two of my guy friends. I actually held my own relatively well!
  • I think I may actually have time to do the redesign I've been talking about for months now--so if in the next few weeks you find my blog to be a bit...um..rough around the edges, pardon the construction dust!
  • I got up to grab lunch in the middle of writing this post and accidentally dropped the pizza slice. Of course it landed face down. Boooooo.
  • Not too much going on aside from prepping for my dad to be leaving for the Philippines next month. He's returning to Cebu (where his family is from) to deal with the property we own there and will be gone for over half the month. We haven't had an extended absence from dad since before he retired from the Navy over 8 years ago.
  • It's getting harder and harder to ignore this travel bug. Even something small, like going to San Francisco, would help me. Ideally, I'd head to Denver to visit my Uncles, New York City to visit a few of my aunts and cousins (and Vivian soon!), or Louisiana to visit bestest...est Brit who I haven't seen in 11 years.
  • One of my best friends was recently hurt by a friend. Pretty badly.  Not physically, I mean emotionally (which is arguably worse). She' sad, and I really wish there was something I could do. I suppose it'll have to do having her know that I'm here for whatever she needs, if ever she needs...but I still hate seeing her hurting.
  • I've only been to the beach once this summer.  How pathetic! But the one day I did go was absolutely beautiful.
Life doesn't seem too exciting based on that, does it? But I'm kind of glad it's low-key right now because the last month feels like it was full-speed ahead. I'm finally breathing.

About Me

My photo
I'm fairly obsessed with penguins, Peanuts (the comic), and the TV show Friends. Parentheses may or may not be (over)used in this blog, and books will pretty much be the only thing I ever talk about because they are my One True Love.
