Squished a banana a few days ago. Pictured above. Last night our neighborhood power went out because the temperature outside reached an all time high . This morning, after a wretched night of sleep found out that there is still no power. With my car stranded in the electric garage, A/C and power down, I called out of work. I then sought refuge at a coffee shop walking distance to my house to charge my phone and receive some liquid energy. To my surprise, they too had no A/C. Oh and the high is also 108 today. Escaping the heat and securing what sanity I had left, I preceded to call a friend who then came and rescued me. It’s been an interesting one today. How was your Saturday?
Heyyyaaa. Do me a favor humans. Go do stuff. Go observe, participate and play. Movie dates with your bestie or significant other are great, but it’s really healthy for us and our communities to interact. Walk somewhere with someone, bike or simply sit and watch people around you. PSA: Bowling is fun. So is roller skating. Playing DDR Max at an arcade, mini golf, walking through a city, playing sports or tossing a frisbee. Have a game night with your buddies. Go and do! I promise you won’t regret it. That way when the movie time comes, it feels as a reward. Don’t get me wrong, we do need to rest. Just not seclusion. ⚡️💃🏼

Finally. Now, after 21 years am truly understanding the power of no and it’s control over my internal peace. It’s wild how beneficial those two letters are when arranged in specific order. Saying yes in the moment is incredibly easy but said to frequently can turn out to be widely detrimental to my circumstances outside. But truth is, I need some down time. A lot actually. I need some me time. It’s okay to be selfish here and there. It’s actually beneficial. When I allow and schedule time for myself I am able to present the best version of myself to the ones I love. Thus, an enjoyable time for myself and for others. Being selfish isn’t always bad. & I’m learning.

• • • • • • Rain moisturizes my skin, washes away my burdens & cleanses my mind. It rolls in clouds in all shades of grey shadowing the mountains, defining the natural lines & dousing everything under a glorious glow. The heaviness of the sky looms over the valley reminding me who is in charge & how much the earth needs nurturing, restoration & regeneration. It washes away the unwanted dirt & grime formed by the millions walking/driving/biking & running attempting to get place to place in this busy little city. He does this without being asked. He doesn’t demand acknowledgement or even expect it. He does it out of love & compassion for His people & His creation.. So you ask, “why do you like the rain?” • • • • • •
I messed up the date for an appointment for today. Disturbed my deeply needed nap to put makeup on, get ready, drive 40 minutes into the pits of hell (Hollywood), held my breath as I parallel parked in a spot meant for a smart car and died a little when I looked at my email in more depth. Came home and filled my stomach with Cadbury Eggs and ate a PB&J. Life in LA is really exciting. scheduling sucks. I wanna be 14 again.

Wow. Jennah moves out to LA today. I could not be any more excited to start this journey with her this year & see what God has in store for the three of us. Jennah & I have been friends for 16 years and she is actually the one who introduced me to Priscilla last January. I’m so honored to get to spend this next year with these two and.. actually, I am just incapable of putting into words how I am feeling so instead...I’ll leave this here. //Ecclesiastes 4:12 “Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves.

House/apartment hunting. Perks: sick backyard full of boulders & rocks to leap around on. Cons: Custom designed sinkhole in the living room.
You are looking at two human icebergs contemplating whether or not to jump would even hurt or if we would be too numb to feel it. Pc: @quarter.roy
Happy New Year from me and me brother. \\2018\\
Get you a friend who locks you both out of the apartment at 6am, in Montana, wearing PJs, barefoot and in 29 degrees. Or don’t. UP2U
Cold hands. Fog. Finals.
