I think there is probably a strong correlation between not liking spicy foods and being boring during sex.
“Women like having sex. They don’t like being socially punished for it.”
Headed back to Japan tomorrow. Can’t wait to get outside of Tokyo for a few days and explore.
“A merging of two people is an impossibility, and where it seems to exist, it is a hemming-in, a mutual consent that robs one party or both parties of their fullest freedom and development. But once the realization is accepted that even between the closest people infinite distances exist, a marvelous living side-by-side can grow up for them, if they succeed in loving the expanse between them, which gives them the possibility of always seeing each other as a whole and before an immense sky.”
—Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet
This article is written for men. Not sure why. These are all things we should achieve as people. It’s a good read.
My favorite thoughts:
1. Pick a partner when you are 100% certain you can live with this person forever […] If your current relationship does stand the test of time you always have your late twenties and thirties to settle down, that’s what they’re there for.
2. Do work you love right now. I understand you have obligations and you need to keep your “day” job, but you still have the weekends and M-F from 5pm-10pm to make some amazing shit happen.
My life right now is breathtaking.
Sailing through and the view above the Geiranger Fjord in Norway.
AHHHH. Take me back, Norway.
Also, follow Lauren on her adventures through the Arctic. She’s posting some great pictures.
So, my curly hair experiment was a success. I learned how to make my hair not frizzy and I wore it down most days. After spending a small fortune in different products over the last month, I finally found the two that actually work with my hair. [Note: This photo was at the beginning of the experiment before all of my curls came back]
It was nice not having to blow dry my hair while we were at the beach or camping. Just a bit of mousse and that was it. Next up, maybe a haircut. It’s only the beginning of June and Atlanta temperatures are already the worst. But that’s to be expected.
This past weekend was awesome. We went camping overnight in North Georgia and kayaked along the Broad River. While I was able to avoid insane sunburn on most of my body, my legs weren’t so lucky. I can barely walk. But it was still worth it.
More brainstorming is happening this week for my personal project/side business. Now that life is calming down, I’m gonna dive head first so I have it running by the end of the summer, hopefully.
