important update

important update: my hair is still growing. it's long and carefree because i haven’t cut it since march.  it’s past the point where it’s a novelty for me, so i’m trying to figure out its next steps.  it’s great to have it all over the place and free and people are like yeah i wish i had the courage to do that, but at a certain point, maybe it’s unruly and lazy and unkempt and i don’t want it long without any shape or direction or goals.

and i am definitely just talking about my hair and not my employment situation.

sicily, early august

view from the apartment
i went to sicily for one week.  it was one of the most beautiful weeks of my life.

sicily, yo.  sicily is bananas.  my aunt and uncle have an apartment in mondello, a sort of beach commune of palermo.  in early august, it’s about 85 degrees and everyone is out in very small swimsuits and the sun, yo, the sun -- it’s like a ton of bricks.  luckily, palermitans/sicilians/italians have invented all kinds of wonderful reprieves from the heat -- gelato, granite, cremino, beach clubs.
