Because I Can
It will be a wonder if anyone ever sees this site ever again.
But. I thought I'd take the liberty, because I can, because I live in a space, a time, under a government that allows me to, to write a couple things about what I love these days.
I love that the election is so near that I can think about where I'll live next
I love thinking about my top three cities: Minneapolis, New York City and Washington DC, and where I'll live, who I'd get to hang out with and what I'd do if I moved to any of these
I am grateful that I live in the United States. Where I'm not worried if I can eat (although I'm well aware that there are many people in this country who are worried about that), where I can speak my mind (I'm aware people live undet tyrannies greater than our government) and where I can have a say in what my government looks like (civic engagement is more than voting)
I am loving a lot of music these days
I love watching my friends get married and bask in their happiness
I love watching the successes of my friends, the failures will amount to something, but will never tarnish my love for anyone
I love my shitty little car
I love that people from all over will come help us with the race I'm working on
I love that my parents are having fun in their retirement, especially that they are having fun together
I love that my family is deeply civicly engaged
I love my room in Manchster, my apartment, too
I am so glad I've avoided buying any furniture for 28 years
I can't wait to buy furniture!
I can't wait to have a cat
I can't wait to have a bed frame
my own kitchen
a job that is challenging and rewarding
to live in a city that is vibrant and full of life and people who love it
a tivoli radio for my kitchen and for my bathroom
a bose ipod dock for my living room/dining room
a new set of sheets
a new set of towels
A neighborhood I like
Friends near by
Time to myself and to enjoy life
That's what I'm thinking about when I have time to think
For now, though, energy is all pointed in one direction and it's a direction I'm really happy with and my job has become something I love (finally).
Sending my love to all of you - I can't wait to be engaged again!
