Hi everyone. I am starting my blog for Barcelona, which is now only 28 days away...oh jeez!

Just a quick wrap up of the summer:

This was a wonderful and beautiful summer. It was nice being home for a change. I feel like I am never here anymore.

As far as what I have been up to I developed quite a liking to cycling and swimming this summer along with gardening and cooking.

I started a garden when I got home and first the first year in recorded history it was a success. I'm growing zucchini, cucumber, peppers, onions, tomatoes, herbs, and eggplant.

In addition to that I have been body surfing a lot, practicing photography, working at the Institute of Americas, and drawing. It's been a pretty wonderful low key summer.

I am really looking forward to leaving at this point and almost wish summer would move along a little faster, but I have mixed feelings about Spain at the same time. I know that is only natural...

In other news, much to my mother's dismay and Jane's disbelief I got a tattoo. Yes, a tattoo. No, I'm not crazy. It is completely socially acceptable for my generation to get tatted so everyone is going to have to get used to it. Including me. :)
