They sent me to Binghamton

I've always wanted to be on the east coast, and the universe responded…by sending me to Binghamton, NY. Oh you've never heard of it? Neither had I, but I do so love adventures and that's how I choose to view this. Let the adventures begin!

That one time I went to Hartford, Connecticut

During Memorial day weekend my friends and I went to Hartford, Connecticut to watch the east coast CrossFit regionals. It was great to watch the amazing athletes (as always), hang out with my friends, and have some quality alone time when my friends left a day earlier than I did. Right before they left, they asked me if I knew what I was going to do by my lonesome self on Memorial day.

Truthfully, given that I use my google calendar as an extension of my being in my day-to-day life, when it comes to vacations, I like to just go with the flow. Do what I feel like at that moment. Disconnect from the world, my calendar, and my usual list of things to do. Pretend like I’m not this uptight, schedule-driven, type A person for a temporary period of time and just let myself be. That day ended up being beautiful and sunny so I decided to hang out at the Elizabeth Park.

The intent was to spend a couple hours at the park, walking leisurely through the beautiful grounds and perhaps spend half an hour or so reading whatever book I was engrossed in at that time then go explore some other cool spot in Hartford. I ended up spending the entire afternoon lying on my yoga mat at the park, basking in the sunlight and enjoying my book. Ah yes, one of the many perks of being alone is the ability to do exactly what you want to do (guilt-free!) even if it may seem lazy to others.

When I first started this blog, life had just thrown me a curveball by sending me to the middle of nowhere in upstate New York right smack in the middle of winter from my hometown in sunny, southern California. I had no idea what to expect, how long I would stay, or even where my life was heading. All I knew was that there were a great many adventures to be had after they sent me to Binghamton.
