This last Saturday, I surprised my boyfriend by taking him to fly kites in Seaport Village– it’s something that I’ve always wanted to do in San Diego. Dorky, I know. We went to a toy store and got those cheapy cellophane and vinyl kites, and they worked awesomely. I love these kinds of little adventures more than anything else.
The little adventure made me realize how important it is to keep going- keep doing things outside of technology, computers, our phones, etc. It might be a funny thing coming from someone in IT, but I think it’s so important to disconnect. “Disconnect” might not be the right word; maybe the right way to describe it is to connect with loved ones without distraction. It seems like I rarely get an opportunity to do this, but it’s so refreshing when I finally do.
I also got to see some of my ADPi sisters this weekend- it was so nice to see them and catch up on everything that’s been happening in all of our lives. It’s unreal that we all graduated a few years ago- it seems like the adventures that we had were just yesterday. It’s such a great feeling to know that no matter how far away you are from sisters geographically, the minute you’re back together and hanging out, it’s like nothing has changed. I miss these girls often, but I’m glad that there are planes and trains and ways for us to get together.
There are a lot of things to be thankful for right now… everything from loved ones and friends, to music. I’ve been listening to this album by Vampire Weekend. It’s been one that I enjoyed and listened to on Spotify so much that I decided to buy the vinyl copy off of Amazon. Praise be to Amazon Prime and viva my record collection!
Nobody knows what the future holds
And it’s bad enough just getting old
Live my life in self-defense
You know I love the past, ’cause I hate suspense…
If Diane Young won’t change your mind,
Baby, baby, baby, baby right on time
