My BFF Jane

Please forgive me for my recent absence from the blogosphere. Life moves fast sometimes. And yet, I think I've probably had too much time to think lately.

Anyway, to make up for a week of unintentional blog abandonment, I've got some music for you! Here are the songs that have been in my car/on my iPod/on my mind this week. It's a pretty eclectic mix, but it's got me in the mood for summertime.

Get a playlist! Standalone player Get Ringtones

What can I say, my musical tastes are all over the board. You know you love it. :P

I'm house-sitting in the heart of Portland, taking care of a lovely pit bull named Jane and loving life in the city. It's not the first house-sitting job I've ever had, but it's the first one in an interesting location with a dog that isn't some sort of elderly Chihuahua.

I'm not naturally a dog person, but Jane is my new best friend. We walk everywhere together. We cook dinner together. We run around the backyard with a Frisbee at night and then crash in front of the TV together ("Saturday Night Fever" was on the other night and I discovered that Jane loves disco music). We even sleep in the same bed, mostly because I've given up on trying to push a stubborn 50 lb pit bull onto the floor.

I think I'm going to miss this dog/lifestyle in a week when this job ends.

I'm also not really sure what my next move is. I keep hearing the phrase "quarter-life crisis" and I think it defines this phase of my life. Though it's not really so much of a crisis as a weird time of trying to figure everything out. I feel like there are so many things I want to do but I don't know where to start.

Someone recently told me to talk to my future self more often, to figure out what I want my past to look like and then live life accordingly. They sent me the following message:

if you wanna make history, you gotta make shit happen.
the world is as big and as small as you want it to be.
breath it in.
then live the way you want to remember living.

The message was a little out-of-the-blue, but totally what I needed to read this morning.

Anyway, I've been camped in this cafe for a while, I should probably walk back and see how Jane is (this is one of the few places she doesn't go with me haha).

Over and out.

  1. I dog-sit/house-sit for a family friend. Dawson (the retriever I watch) tries to get in the bed, but I remove him. I don't sleep with hot dog breath on me.


It makes my day when YOU leave me comments. :D
