Wedding #1

Last weekend I was in Louisiana

Boudin Cracklin

for Camille’s wedding.

Then I went to Abbeville to visit family

and flew back to California through Houston, rife with signs of the apocalypse.

It was fun. I ate a lot of good food.

UC Berkeley’s J-school told me thanks but no thanks. I had a brief moment of wishing I’d chosen grad school back in 2004 when they accepted me, but it passed. If I hadn’t done Peace Corps, I’d never have heard donkeys braying at 1am, biked 80 kilometers through sand while asking for directions in Pulaar, or felt the grotesque absurdity—and longed for the blissful privilege—of my life in the States.

Blah blah blah. Their loss, etc.

Four days, five states, 35 hours of travel, and 2350 miles later, I now live in California.
