hira: dwindling days on the mountain

current location: last days on the mountain

i'm just going to say it--i really hate snow. sometimes it looks magical and the beautiful white snowflakes land gracefully onto my hair and coat. but then all i can imagine is the ugly, grey slush it will soon become. ok so appearances really isn't the root of this; in fact, its the inconvenience. while snow in torino meant a weekend spent in the montagna (mountain) with skiing and lots of cozying in the cabin, snow in Maryland and DC just means icy roads and missed brunch dates (my apologies, diana). so here's to hoping for some clear skies and warmer temperatures stat.
while the cooler weather has tempted me to stay indoors and be lazy, i had made some goals last week and have been sticking to them: more tea and water, daily activity, applications. i'm happy to report that my application-all 125 pages-has been sent in to DC, i've been loving a daily practice of sun salutations and vinyasa flow, and have been downing the green and white peony teas. eating kale, mushrooms, and spelt pasta. loving on my family. i even got a job offer this week :)

at home, in my living room...

nael, my adorable nephew.

moving back to uni this thursday, i am slightly nervous, but mostly exciting for the coming adventures. i'll be moving into CHUM (Co-op Housing at University of Maryland); the community based living style, not-for-profit byline and cooperative, shared space speaks mountains of what is possible in terms of student housing. things to look forward to: being surrounded by intelligent individuals and fellow activists with like-interests, not having to leave my house for various meetings and event-planning and being around healthy (mostly vegetarian/vegan) food. mmm.

perhaps a DC-area blogger meet-up is necessary soon?
