From her father she inherited a love for cheap zinfandels and an allergy to cats. From her mother she inherited a love of the sea and a desperate need to know the ending of books before she read them.

#backpacking  #adventure  #my adult life 
Life has been pretty good lately. Ive made lots of room for adventure and tried to push out stress. I made a stir fry on Friday where every single ingredient was from my backyard (except the noodles and the oil). I’ve found a way to fill my life with simple pleasures and grand adventures that take up the books and crannies outside of a 40+ hour work week 

Yet I feel like a different person than I was 6 months ago. I get angry quickly. I snap at people I love. I’m impatient and mean. I think sitting at a desk is killing me and I am beginning to understand my parents a lot better. Being an adult is excruciating. There are things I love about it. My life has never been more full or vibrant. It’s also never been more stressful. 

I’m going to be working on myself. I’m going to work on setting boundaries and allow myself to relax. I’m going to continue seeking adventure and the life high it brings me. I am going to focus on the positive. I am going to chase the feeling I had here. Life. Abundant life.

Me and the Mountain by Rodney Allen
“Mount Taranaki/Egmont (2518m) and tarn on the Pouakai Rangers, New Zealand. I spent a cold night beside the tarn waiting for completely still water. This happened just before sunrise, with the full moon about to set.”

I hate working. I love fat rain drops on my face, thunder on the horizon, glacial lakes, Sierra sunsets, dark starry nights, dehydrated food, friends, family, and long squishy car rides home.
