Micaela & Steve: probably the most "Kodak moment" moment we've had.
We were writing a song about the Holy Trinity--no joke, we're in a band!
I told her about the calm I felt post-vacation and how I've been trying to carry it with me since coming back into the grind. She said she thought a lot of it started with canceling out the chaos around you, and we both agreed that our physical environments have a lot to do with it.
Somehow I thought I'd be more settled in at the house. I never thought the dishes would always been done or the bathroom sink clean but I did think that I'd have pictures on the wall and a relatively clean bedroom and all boxes emptied by now. Not the case, not even close!
I'm so tired at the end of the day. Last night I thought I could use my little ball of energy to clean out my office after I read the last two chapters of my book but by the time I read the last few words, I was too whipped.
I'm not asking for advice per se, just admitting that I'm still adjusting to a life that is not, well, college. Even years later I'm still hoping for a chance to get it all done and probably romanticizing the hell out of the past. It's all about balance and if you've got any pointers, hit me.
