Today began as any other Tuesday: wake up after three separately set alarms- spaced an hour apart, think about the tasks that are to come throughout the next eight hours of work-who will I need to speak with? What articles need to be written?- and drowsily make my way to the office on the back of the moto, sunglasses deflecting the sun’s bright, unrelenting glare- thin cigarette hanging despondently between my fingers. I arrived at my place of work; I turned on, clicked around, and logged in to all of my accounts and pages- awaiting the e-mails I would respond to, the edits I would need to make; but first snuck onto my Facebook only to be reminded unsubtly that “I HAVE AN EVENT TODAY”.
There is nothing like getting a group Skype chat from the loveliest back from home. They’ve taken to a yearly tradition we usually reserved for New Years Eve and gone to Seabrook, a gorgeous little seaside town on the Washington Coast. Although I’ve missed them this year, I’m so glad they’ve kept the dream alive and continue on with the Seabrook way. Be jealous, because they’re my friends.
Miss you dearly my babies, get your buns to Cambodia.
