Fall has yet to come to Florida. We are still greeted by summer storms, humidity, and dragonfly’s on an almost daily basis though I did hear a rumor today that we will get some relief from the heat on Monday. Legend at this point. This unceasingly hot weather has made me want to stay in most of the time. I’m not the type to walk through heat gracefully. I sweat buckets and would rather not think about the consequences of sweat on a quick walk to my car or to lunch and then back to the office. Professional clothes is not meant for that kind of perspiration.
I made a conscious effort to attend more cultural events in 2014. I used to complain a lot about the area I moved to and currently live in not having culture. Now that I’ve lived for a few years as a functioning adult here and not as an angsty teen, my perspective has changed. I’m definitely not in love with this place and do see myself moving out of here at some point, but I have done my part to give this place another chance as an adult and it surprised me. Less cow fields, more musicians, more art, and more screenings of foreign films. (For the record, the weather still sucks but that’s ok.) Granted, a lot of this was unheard of ten years ago so I think my city-teen complaints were slightly valid :P
I realize how easily one can fall into a laziness trap if you don’t regularly check yourself. “a little review” has become the default blog post lately and I think it’s because it’s so easy. There’s literally no thought involved. I pick the relevant pictures from my instagram feed and write a couple of sentences. Maybe that’s what you want? (because I mean, who still reads let’s be real.)
