Hi beautiful people!
Gosh. Thinking back on my time here in Cali so far makes me proud because I have explored a good bit of the area. I honestly wasn't expecting to but I am so happy right now. I feel so balanced with grad school and exploring what life has to offer. I don't think we should ever feel like we are being inhibited by something that's in our control. Just thinking back on how much I studied to get into a program with endless nights of studying makes me realize this is my pay off. I'm not saying that life is easy right now or perfect but it's such a great balance. Thinking about this idea of balance and "perfection" also makes me want to clarify how important your perception of your life is. Don't compare, don't overthink, don't be negative. Just look at everything you have for what it's worth. And realize that you are blessed. Because you are.
Here are some of my adventures in L.A. for the past month. I love to watch it and reflect on all the things I've seen and all the things I have learned in between these adventures at school and at fieldwork. It has been an amazing month.
