329/366 – Turning Pages

I am currently reading a book that seems more like my diary written by someone else than just a book. The parallels between my life and the author’s life are amazing. And the range of emotions that have been brought on as I read are numerous as a result of all the similarities.

The book is titled My Berlin Kitchen,¬†and is all about the author’s (Luisa Weiss) process of dealing with love, heartbreak, and homesickness through cooking. The relationships that we have had, and how they end is remarkably similar, as is how we deal with them. She also talks about the idea of being homesick no matter where she lived, and the constant pull to the different cities she had lived in (and even those she hadn’t), something I am constantly dealing with these days (and struggling with not having anyone that understood this). And, she mentions when she started her blog, and how it became such an outlet for her, which those of you who have followed me for a while know is also true for me.

The book has made me realize some things about myself, made me long for things even more than I was before, and helped me feel at ease about some things. All this and I’m only half way through. It has made me want to write more here on my blog, so I am going to try to follow through with that. I also have some plans in mind for after my 366, which I am already excited about. If you, my lovely readers, have anything you would be interested in hearing about, seeing, etc, please let me know; I would love to hear from all of you.

303/365 – Paper writing setup

Today has been insanely busy, and I totally forgot/didn’t have time to take a picture until just now, at 1 am. I am currently writing a paper that is due tomorrow, and will be working on it for a while still, so this is all I could manage for a picture today. Lame, yes, but it is a real documentation of my life tonight.

57/365 – Reflection

It was an absolutely beautiful day today, I just had to be outside taking pictures. Plus I was getting sick of taking pictures of household items. Luckily my good friend Eric agreed to go hiking at Raven Run Nature Sanctuary with me. He was very patient with me as I obsessively took tons of pictures, and as I took a million of him as well. Eric is an excellent singer/song writer, and it always fun to listen to the things that come out of his incredibly creative mind. Tons more to come most likely!
