Starting is the hardest

Six months ago, I was starting, waving familiarity goodbye from the window of the plane I almost didn’t catch on my way to San Diego, where the next morning I would begin my attempt at hiking the Pacific Crest Trail in its entirety.


It’s funny because today I had every intention of hanging out with my girlfriends, something I almost never do and have almost never done on a regular basis. I do everything with Cameron most weekends, but I wanted to switch it up and also I’m trying really hard to try to have friends.

I tend to cringe when people ask me what I’m doing these days.  99% of the time, they are asking about my chosen profession, a subject I’ve never been too thrilled to discuss to begin with.  I’d rather be discussing the great new tacos I had at a local dive, or the hilarious sketch from last week’s SNL, or my ongoing obsession with 70s game shows.

My sophomore year of college, I thought I’d be totes adorbs and write a weekly email to friends.  It’s honestly a lazy man’s way of keeping people informed on what he’s doing.  So essentially, a blog.   Here I am, older and definitely not wiser, falling into my lax ways and giving you facts and details of daily life. 

How Many

“Sawah, how many are you?” Morgan asked me from the back seat.

I glanced in the rearview mirror to initiate the eye contact necessary when trying to communicate with a four-year-old, but Cooper interrupted before I could open my mouth.

“I know how many you are, Sawah!” he shouted from the way back. “Thuwteen.”
