Santa Fe

Oh, it's the end of June?  And I'm about to post about Memorial Day?

I do what I want.
It was a pretty excellent weekend.  The drive wasn't horrible (it gave me a good excuse to drink all the Mountain Dew I wanted) 

(p.s. i love mountain dew baja blast (thanks taco bell!) but now that they sell it in stores normally i feel confused...because every time i drink it i instinctively want to eat a chalupa.  life is hard)

Anyways.  I really loved Santa Fe.  And Taos.  They were both delightful little places with delightful people.  We also stopped by this weird little place called Earthships.  It was weird/cool?  

       

      

      

I really wanted to buy a turquoise ring while I was down there and after searching through several shops and streets, I ended up buying one from the very first place we went.  Which was helpful because I flirted a lot with the guy working there.  It did get me a pretty decent discount, but in the end he rejected my invitation to hang out after his shift.  Love is pain.

10.

My 10 year high school reunion is tonight.  It's actually in less than two hours.  I keep going back and forth on whether or not I should/will go, but I finally just bought the ticket so I think I'm pretty much locked in.

I reflect on the last ten years and can create a list of all the things I've been able to experience, all the heartbreaks and successes.  Some people can't believe its been ten years.  But to me, it feels just right.  It feels like its been enough time for me to grow up a little bit (not a lot) but also it feels like there is so much more life to go.  I like this feeling.


When I reflect, I also feel like not much has changed in regards to me as a person. So now I will provide a list of things that are different but also the same:


Different
Don't live at home
Have my own car
Well-loved passport
Queen size bed (this recent upgrade from a twin has changed my life)
Go to the movies alone more than with other people
I wear makeup now (ya welcome)

Same
Still do my laundry at home
Love the Backstreet Boys
Hang out with 21 year olds 
Temporary tattoos 
Dress-up box
Lack of interest in the World Cup
Hate showers and dogs
Have a hard time saying no to a dare
Fan of no pants

In conclusion, I am mostly the same...but hopefully a little bit better.
