It's been 40º weather here in San Francisco, as of late, so I can easily say I've been thinking about warm days back in Hawaii as of late, despite not being the biggest beach bum. Around Christmas time, my goooorgeous friend Shannon (who is actually a mermaid; @mermaidshannon on Instagram if you need proof!) and I hit the sand for a little impromptu photoshoot. This is where my mind will be until my final term starts...
To be fair, I haven't spent much time outside at all since I've been home, and the cold isn't entirely to blame. I've been spending most of my winter holiday time alone, in my house, eating lentils and rice, binge watching whatever shows I can think of on Netflix, Hulu, and YouTube. Normally, I would absolutely hate the solidarity, but I find myself really missing and looking forward to being alone when I actually do spend time with other people--and if you know me at all, that is really, really peculiar and new for me. The time alone has given me the opportunity to write more, to make more art, and to think more (which is usually a bad thing, but not lately). The days are winding down until I am out of the house 5 days a week once more, without the spare time for these activities. Hopefully I continue writing in my journal and making art as often as I can, because it's been truly liberating.
