I'm realizing this might be borderline disgusting, but every picture on my phone from this day is of my ear. Other than the obvious redness from me poking at it, there's something in there, or there must be, because wearing earbuds had been uncomfortable all week. Whatupwitdat.

When did this girl become a walking advice machine? I've always wanted to hire her as my assistant, in my hypothetical very important and busy life, but I might need her as a life coach, too.

I've been opposed to Sperry's for roughly eight years. I hold grudges very well. I didn't see the point in a boat shoe in a land-locked state, and would snarkily ask where the individual's boat was when seeing someone wearing them. If anyone had ever answered with a positive location of a boat, that snark would've disappeared immediately while I tried to recover and invite myself onto said boat. I learned this year that they're waterproof, and as I shopped for my annual pair of Toms because I poked my pinkie toe through yet about pair, I realized that a waterproof shoe that isn't a heavy, no air-flow, sweaty, rain boot is a very practical thing. It would also save some embarrassment on that days that I wear my galoshes in anticipation for the rain in the forecast that never shows. I swallowed my pride, ordered a pair, and I'm in love. I had heard my feet would be a blistery mess until I wore them in (and I witnessed this first-hand in Zach's foray into the Sperry world), but I haven't had a single blister. They are incredibly comfortable and I'm convinced that I should've been a sailor.

Honestly, it never ceases to amaze me when I turn a corner and see the Capital or another landmark in DC. It's a regular day for me, but a symbol of freedom, a destination, for so many others. I'm so happy to call this home.

High-rise living means creeping on neighbors. In this terrifying situation, someone is unfazed by the blaze of their illegal grill. I'm glad I'm in the building across the street. PS - everything's fine and today I can see someone on the porch drying their laundry.

Saturday morning yoga is quite possibly my favorite thing.

I did it. I deactivated my Facebook and then took a picture of the computer screen so it looks all cross-hatched. It was creeping me out more and more with the data it collects, I hated finding important news from the site rather than in person, and I read one too many study about how it was the cause of depression. So far, I feel liberated.
