Nostalgic little post: I got my Kanken backpack (brand new in the top photo, and almost a year old in the last) an entire year ago yesterday! This little pack has really & truly served me well over the last year and I’m excited to see where we’ll go in the future. I remember when photos of these backpacks started popping up alllll over the internet but I honestly genuinely recommend it, it’s been a sturdy traveler and good on my back and easy on the eyes. 

Yesterday I shared a photo that was taken 1,000 metres above this spot, showing the brilliant blue of Consolation Lakes from high up. This is the reverse view, looking under the surface, and towards my high point (double summit just left of centre).
The Consolation Lakes are astonishingly clear and I spent a good deal of time playing around with the underwater housing on my way back to the trailhead. I’ll have a few more of those underwater views to share in the coming days.

The first photo above was taken around 5am when I pulled into the parking lot of the gym and was getting ready to go in and take part in my first swim workout as part of the Blue Tides Masters Swim Team!  Yeah I was all kinds of nervous.

The second photo is when I got into my car after the training and feeling really happy about how well it went!

1600 yards total - but a much more challenging workout as everything is on time intervals and you are sharing a lane etc.  Today the focus was all free style and back stroke. 

Below is a memory that came up from my FB page from one year ago yesterday.  It was my first swim lesson with the Coach and is another great reminder of how much healthier and leaner I am getting! 

And because there are several photos of me in this post - I am also going to consider this my SDS for my musical sister from another mister, the girl who also has a background related to editing and broadcast and an all around sweetheart who wears all the sassy pants,  Miss @marathonmelissa!

I didn’t take as many photos of the two of us together this time around, but it doesn’t mean that I didn’t have the time of my life! Over the four days we spent together, all I wanted was to be with her just a little bit longer. See you again later this year Puppy c; @animatedheart

Also, Tinker really likes me now.

I saw @nyxfears at a grocery store in Los Angeles yesterday. I told him how cool it was to meet him in person, but I didn’t want to be a douche and bother him and ask him for photos or anything.

He said, “Oh, like you’re doing now?”

I was taken back, and all I could say was “Huh?” but he kept cutting me off and going “huh? huh? huh?” and closing his hand shut in front of my face. I walked away and continued with my shopping, and I heard him chuckle as I walked off. When I came to pay for my stuff up front I saw him trying to walk out the doors with like fifteen Milky Ways in his hands without paying.

The girl at the counter was very nice about it and professional, and was like “Sir, you need to pay for those first.” At first he kept pretending to be tired and not hear her, but eventually turned back around and brought them to the counter.

When she took one of the bars and started scanning it multiple times, he stopped her and told her to scan them each individually “to prevent any electrical infetterence,” and then turned around and winked at me. I don’t even think that’s a word. After she scanned each bar and put them in a bag and started to say the price, he kept interrupting her by yawning really loudly.

Finally back!

Yesterday we arrived pretty late and the internet was really bad so I just went to bed after a good shower xD

Took some photos this year as well c:

anonymous asked:

Have you seen exo or kaisoo (specifically ;)) irl? I saw a couple of blog yesterday saying that they really are diffent irl and videos and gifs didn't make justice on how beautiful their aura is. It's breaking my heart, I hope I live in SK, lol :'((

I actually have seen them live! I saw them in Chicago back in February, honestly it’s still one of the best moments of my life. And I agree, videos, GIFS, and photos don’t do them justice, they are just so much more beautiful in real life and up close. I’m not sure what this particular blog was talking about because exo/kaisoo seemed the same, if not closer over here, so it could just be that it was a bad day for them, or they were really tired.

Yesterday I was out catching Pokemon on the beach and found this very poorly gull. He’s a lesser black backed, and considering all the gulls around here are herrings he is basically a ~Shiny Gull~

Suspected poisoning, he is at the centre recuperating now. I didn’t have much hope when I first picked him up but he perked up a bit once I got him into the centre. Fingers crossed for him!

anonymous asked:

what do you do to stay positive when you're sad bc you're homesick and miss your family?

sometimes it’s really hard, especially because I’m v close with my mum so being unable to just hug her when I’m feeling bad is one of the things that gets to me the most.

I facetime my family if they’re around, or i’ll text my mum something silly so that we can have a little light hearted conversation to cheer me up - yesterday I texted her a photo of luke and she replied with a photo of him so we just sent luke photos back and forth for a while. We have a little jar of vegemite and tbh when I’m a bit homesick I’ll have some idk it’s small but it’s just little nostalgic things from home that help a bit. I go out into my favourite spots in London to try and appreciate where I am and why, and to remind myself that even though right now it’s really fucking hard, i’m Here, experiencing things and the world. Sometimes I just sit on my bed and cry just to get it out. I don’t know how helpful any of this is, but it’s natural to feel homesick sometimes, it’s okay to be sad about it but you kind of just have to keep on keeping on, busy yourself doing things or hanging out with people and eventually it will pass, y'know?

My Brother.

I miss him pretty bad. He’s five years older than me and growing up we were pretty close. He and I grew apart about 10 years ago and only just now have we fallen back onto a similar page mentally.

Yesterday I uploaded my ‘merrr day’ photo thingy to facebook and he left the comment of “i miss you”.

I read the words and instantly got teary. 

My brother has always been my idol. He is one of the very few I miss quite badly from home, I often get teary when looking at photos of his life. 

I miss you big bro and I love the person you have become. 

@ask-the-infiltrators

Actually it was my fault because I’m a silly dummy-head sometimes.

When the blog themes were messed up yesterday, I tried fixing it. I found a website that gave records of what websites looked like and got the code through there. APPARENTLY, that included the posts of the photo they had of the site, so the code pretty much tells the computer “hey, show these posts, and only those posts.” I did not see that when I pasted it.

Luckily, since tumblr saves codes now, I was able to get the REAL code back! :) 

Haha. I’m so silly! :p

Poem: Becoming Wild Two Days Before Summer

I wrote this poem on Lama Mountain (the meditation commune I lived at for 16 months), in June 2012. 

A photo of me that winter, always unshowered & always cold


In the winter there, I had a sweet little cabin with a wood stove. But once it got warmer, I moved back outside and set up a tent so i could be close with summer time. Here’s what I wrote:


Becoming Wild Two Days before Summer


Since yesterday the words
Of this poem have
Been showing up
Like a snake
Crawling up my front door.
But to really write
I needed to let go
Of my skin
And just be a heart
In the spinning world.
Words like it
When you do that.
They come quickly.
So I went to the pond
And waded in
Holding my long skirt up
To my hips.
My feet sank
Two inches into the mud.
The clouds were
Mushrooms and sharks.
Bright blue dragon flies
Bolted over the water
Like electrical currents
And I started singing
A Hindu chant which means
I bow to everything
I accept everything
I make love to life and death.
The wind which had
Been quiet as a daisy
Picked up.
My singing got louder
And so did the wind
Almost pushing
Me back into the water.
I bellowed Sanskrit words
Into the small storm.
I was a small storm.
The tall swamp grass
Swung around
And suddenly I felt my skin unwrap
And looked to see it flying away
Like a dandelion wisp.
No longer a human
I stopped singing.
The wind became gentle.
Without my skin
I was a reed flute
In the hands of God.
He swaggered
As he played me.
The ecstasy of each
Note set loose a
New wild thing.
My breath was a magpie.
Cicadas were
Running my nervous system.
My bare vital organs
Smelled of Tiger Lily.
Butterflies drew nectar
From my arteries.
I was just
Another part of summer
In full flower.
