Rockport, Texas

I think I complained about the heat and being sweaty in about 99% of my blog posts from last summer. I don’t like the heat, I don’t like the humidity, and Texas and I are just on general bad terms this time of year. It’s going through menopausal hot flashes and dragging me down its hole of misery and hormones.

I’m not exaggerating.

But hey, Rockport, Texas had the type of hot weather that didn’t make me contemplate learning Danish and moving to Greenland. I’m already struggling enough with German, yikes.

Here are some pretty pictures from my trip:

I loved seeing huge patches of wildflowers with the red sunflowers I used to pick for my mom as a kid. I saw two birds gettin’ it on that day, and even went out into the surprisingly cool water, where I was instructed to shuffle so that I don’t accidentally step on a stingray. With my luck, I’m glad I survived. I attract danger.

This was just the first of my trips coming up in the next month. I am heading to Chicago in less than two weeks to see BABYMETAL, and then heading to Germany and Indiana not long after that! This summer may not actually be that bad.

Don’t forget to put on sunscreen.

Sunday Neutrals

I have a new job! After a year of searching, I’ve secured employment at Rice University and couldn’t be more excited. I’m also moving in with my boyfriend in two weeks. Changes!

The boyfriend and I had a busy weekend of shopping for white elephant gifts, making chicken and dumplings, taking my puppy to the vet, and admiring the decorations at the mall surrounded by chattering Christmas shoppers. I now have more presents to wrap and tree-shaped Reeses to avoid eating.

I’ll miss having the Houston skyline in view, but I’m looking forward to my new beginnings. I’m nervous about starting somewhere new, as always, but I know that this is a step in the right direction. The ultimate goal is to be writing novels as my day job, but that will take time, effort, and perseverance. This new job is a happy reminder that I am capable.

Have a fantastic Sunday and thank you for reading.
