The ancient kingdom of Mauretania, once ruled by Juba II and Cleopatra Selene, is lost to the sands of time. But there are the ruins. I’ve posted photos of the area near Selene’s capital city, Iol-Caesaria, modern-day Cherchell Algeria. Now, thanks to Aaron Sakulich, I have the opportunity to share some images of the other major city of Mauretania: Volubilis. I’m amazed at the majesty these ruins hint at. I can imagine Selene riding a carriage along this road, passing under the triumphal arch, and walking in the shade of these columned avenues. I can see her feet sweeping along these mosaics, or climbing these stairs. Let’s take a little journey back in time.
I saw my psychiatrist today and updated her about what was going on. Thankfully she didn’t try to change any of my medication. But she did fill out the form that I need to send to my doctor so she can order blood work.
Apparently my dad already got a call from the people from the Institute of Living but I still haven’t talk to him about it yet. I’m seeing Gina tomorrow so she can tell me more about the program.
I don’t even know what I’ve gotten myself into.
And, fun fact: when I was drinking the other night I spent a good amount of time trying to figuring out how many calories were in the beer I was drinking. I kept asking everyone because I was so worried about it.
