Okay, so I'm clearly not a very good blogger. It's been almost 6 months! Wow.
Here's a recap of what I've been up to...
~Bought a car, an old Saab, I loved it until someone smashed into it. Got it totalled, bought a new car! I never thought I could love another car. But alas, I found a 2001 Beetle with only 35,000 miles on it, and we're in love!
~Traveled to Goldbug Hot Springs, Idaho with 12 people, some of whom I've never met. To celebrate and spread the ashes of our late friend A.J. Prescott. It was his favorite hot springs, and he requested that his friends from all over the country meet and fulfill his last wish. Thank you, A.J. We miss you, sweetie.
~Also, traveled to the SF Bay Area for my sisters birthday. Thanks for bringing me Adam! I had a blast with my family. Norcal rocks! Is that how you say it?
~I've been dealing with the Alaskan winter. It helps to have heated seats in the Beetle to assist in warming my frozen body. This winter went really well for me. Not many of them do. Maybe it was the Vitamin D?
~I moved my classes to a new studio at the first of the year. My students and classes are really thriving there. My relationship with the studio's owners is healthy and mutual.
~I traveled to South Carolina to visit my grandparents, John and Faith. They are both getting pretty old, and I was able to spend some quality time with them. I got to hear stories about the Navy in the 40's from Papa and eased my grandmother's worries about my world travels. "It's really a lovely place, Gram, and very friendly" It was emotionally draining to leave knowing that I may not see them again.
~Shortly after, I hurt my neck again. I don't think the herniation was as bad as last year, but I've in and out of chiropractors, acupuncturists, and physical therapy. I'm still on the mend!
~Tattoo! I've been working on the start of my chrysanthemum half sleeve.
~For some reason, I'm the type of person that always needs something to look forward to. A short term goal, if you will. Currently, it's hosting a FCBD General Skills up here, in July with my idol, Carolena Nericcio.
I'll try to be a better blogger!
