Running: Metaphorically, it’s all I’ve been doing for years. At the end of September, I stopped running and moved back to the United States. And since moving back, I’ve been moving forward.

Five years ago I was about to turn 20. I had just finished my sophomore year at Whitman. I was about to start blogging. And I was about to move to France for the first time.

Approach me as you would a cat. One you don’t know well but sometimes glimpse at twilight on your way home.

I got home late Thursday night to find over 100 Wordpress notification emails for new likes, reblogs, comments, and followers. Either I’m being massively spammed…or….maybe…could I have been Freshly Pressed?

I still thrive on travel and adventure, but I travel differently.
