i had a blast at home, especially seeing everyone and eating everything that i missed (bus boys nachos, bodos, christian's, mom's breakfast, pizza, pumpkin pie, etc).
i feel this deep want/need to be rooted somewhere, and yet i keep wanting to move and can't stay in one place. i know exactly what i want, and yet i constantly doubt everything. i'm looking at copenhagen right now (for a research fellowship), and really want to visit paris. so if anyone wants to meet me in paris, let me know.
being in the dc area and visiting cville= much needed breath of fresh air and warmth. even moments just sitting around drinking + watching movies with ivan or talking and listening to new electro tracks with kenny were priceless. i saw sam twice, though not long enough, at brunch in shirlington and then down in cville one night; got delicious thai food take out with camille and talked for a couple of hours; hung out in the freezing lot with caleb & got beers with him, frensley + mccarthy; saw two of my favorite professors; hung out with beautiful shauna and saw rick's hip hop group (haven't seen that kid in like 5 years); saw kenny DJ with chelsea, lost at beer pong twice; got pretty drunk off of one joose when i was super jet lagged; saw friends from university at klaas' party//slim's going away party; briefly saw robert who i haven't seen since i was 16-17; enjoyed a delicious early thanksgiving dinner with family + neighbors. my mom just retired, so we also spent a lot of time together; she's never looked more beautiful.
so yeah, now i'm all nostalgic, missing home, and wanting to stop hanging out with the people i hang out with here and make new friends. i want new perspectives and love (not just romantic, but also with friends).
