today i picked up the holga photos i took in switzerland. i'm pretty happy about the way that some of them came out. look here.
also today, i'm doing the lemon juice/maple syrup/cayenne pepper/water cleanse. i'm not hungry, but i really, really want to eat something solid. i should really do it for longer than one day to receive the desired results, but i won't last. i'm dreaming of cooking some chik'n and hericot verts for dinner. mmm.

absolutely no self control.

this week:

has been one of the longest of my life.

18 March 2008


so i'm back from switzerland. it was a wonderful trip which, unfortunately, didn't get the travel-urge out of my system, but intensified the itch. i feel like i need to get going again already, before my backpack is completely unloaded. a road trip, anyone?

springtime happened while i was away, or at least began its infiltration, and new green leaves were a nice thing to come home to. i can't wait for warm (but not too warm), sunny days. and barton springs. and snow cones and suntans.

today in my memoir class, we workshopped a personal essay i wrote about my grandfather. i've been having anxiety attacks and nervous stomachaches in anticipation of this class session for three weeks. but i made it through with just a hot (and blushing) face and a shaky hand to reveal my unease. i received a lot of positive feedback, which was surprising, relieving, and flattering. one lady commented that i should publish. yeaaaah. anyway, i'm feeling a lot better now.
