Freckled Life
Jessi! Don't forget to befriend many bats on your Texas adventure for me. <3

I will, of course!!! Will be arriving in Texas tomorrow! PRAISE! 

Today, I drove across the I-10 Twin Span Bridge (after watching a documentary on bridge collapses right before I left). 

I know mountains. I do not know how to behave around this much water. 

(But really, NOLA is great and warm and friendly and I love it)

Every time I straighten my hair I consider giving up about this far in.

In the morning, I will be on my way to Texas. Andrew and I are stopping in New Orleans for two nights and staying with strangers (thanks, Airbnb!), hopefully seeing Bianca Del Rio on Monday Night, then waking up early Tuesday to cross the Sabine and arrive in Austin. There we’ll be staying with a Baby Rattlesnakes veteran, eating all the BBQ our bellies can hold, and raising hell. Our return trip begins next Saturday and involves a 14 hour drive from Austin to Atlanta, and seeing Ricky’s sweet face after too damn long. 

I feel I was never able to forget anyone I have been with. Because each person had their own specific qualities. You can never replace anyone. What is lost is lost.

Just trying to figure out how I’m going to get a month’s worth of paperwork done in one day, attend a barbeque that begins as soon as I get off work, AND get myself to Black Mountain to hear American Aquarium without leaving early and upsetting the barbeque hosts. 

I felt a tremendous distance between me and everything real.
