I’ve gotten really good at parking since I got to SF. Finding a spot is like winning the lottery and so you learn to squeeze into the tiniest of spots. I haven’t had to 90° park on one of these hills fortunately. That’s still a few levels beyond my reach.

I wanted to re-organize a bit and decided to create a sub-blog where I could throw more serious posts related to social work and social issues. Mostly for my personal reference, but open for anybody to check out if you’re interested.

It’s nice to be busy, but I’m ready for a break

Lack of Tumblr posts means my real-life productivity has increased…which is a good thing. 

I’ve increased my volunteer hours with Project Open Hand and Glide Community Housing both because I enjoy it and I need to collect more hours for my social work program application. I’m also looking at more involved volunteer positions that include pretty comprehensive training. Because they’re such good opportunities, however, there are waitlists and rigorous applications processes. I don’t know if I’ll get into any of them, but at least I tried, right? 

I also decided to knuckle down and actually do my research/critique assignment. The good news is I finally have a working draft…the bad news is I always have enough material and ideas for a book, thus there’s still a lot of editing and revising to do. I’m Alice In Wonderland when it comes to writing; I’m wordy and tend to meander down rabbit holes. I’m headed up to Canada, however, next week so am determined to have it off my plate by then. I’m looking forward to hot summer weather and catching up with my family.

4th of July hike to Alamere Falls. The actual falls was anticlimactic, due to California’s drought, but the rest of the hike was really nice. The drive up on highway 1 along the coast was super twisty,  but beautiful.

Saturday dinner done properly.

Tasted so good, I could close my eyes and almost pretend I was back with all the smells and sounds of Korean nightlife.

My brain is mush…

Four years of writing news story format, blogging, and four-years post university have ruined my academic paper-writing skills.

I have to write a max 2,000 word critique and it’s killing me. I spent all afternoon on it and haven’t come up with anything coherent.

Even more pathetic is the fact that it’s an online course with personally-set deadlines and I essentially don’t have any other daily commitments. 

Part of me wants to cry at how stupid I’ve become and put it off another day.

Bleh.
