…as of tomorrow… it will be two years ago i boarded a plane for seattle. It seems like yesterday most of the time. but, wowzers, two years… That is such a long time.
When I graduated, I really thought I was picking a two year place on a map. I like travelling and exploring far too much to stay put. Plus, what was the chance I would get a job I would want for more then that amount of time?
I was completely wrong. (that never happens! imagine that!)
I like it – no actually really really like it. So much I am excited to stay, work, buy a house, have amazing friends, and play here for a bit longer.
As I sit here and remember all I have done in two years, all I can really think about is how much more I have left to do. Although its been two years, I realize how much I really don’t know about my city, my place.
To start, I have wanted to go to the San Juans since I moved. This post is being written today because tomorrow, on my sea-versary, that trip is happening. WooHOO! Me plus six friends are going up there to go kayaking for four days. We have a guide and get to camp on remote parts of the islands every night. Hopefully we will see lots of orcas, porpoises, humpbacks, seals, maybe a puffin. (this makes me think of another adventurous vacay where I was excited about obsessed with a wild animal sighting, story for another time.) I am ready to go with some new fast-dry shirts, cute new teva kayaking shoes, nutella and pretzels for snacking, a special waterproof camera bag so I can show you all my pictures when I get back, and most importantly, some new small board games (reviews will follow next week). Plus, I get to kayak with B…. which usually means LOTS of splashing each other!
tons of seattle love,
