you're telling me! 10 months is both a long and short time, especially in the policymaking world.
i'm really looking forward to the trip (minus the heat and I already know Croatia is gonna be a clusterfuck of tourists lol). my mom and i were commenting on how nice it is to travel w/ each other now as adults. and my dad is driving so that'll be fun too. he was telling me that on his Hippie Trail Adventure, he tried to go to Albania but couldn't. and i told him that i learned that nobody could get in or out under Enver Hoxha's Communist rule, so it'll be neat to show him all the neat Communist history stuff that was happening when he couldn't get in.
and by neat Communist history I mean a shit load of bunkers (173,000+)
last full week in the vo. family is coming next week and we're going to drive the Adriatic coast for 10 days and i go back to the US shortly after!
i'll be driving from the East Bay to DC for the latter half of August and I know Topher planned a pit stop in Ann Arbor, so Ann Arbor folx git at me.
can you hear me crying from deep within the balkans? lmao
all the cool kids use subheadings
Just when I got comfy with the idea of leaving and only looking back fondly, I met and clicked with an academic who wants me to write an article on the policymaking environment for an upcoming book. I said something about having already bought a ticket home being my reasoning for solidly leaving, and he said something about it being simple to find the funds to keep me here... not sure if he meant in terms of just a plane ticket or something to live on. Not so sure about sticking around, but I'm gonna write the article and it can definitely be done remotely. I'd really like to go home haha
My 2 research interns (yeah weird to think about having interns... I'm not so far removed from being an intern myself lol) presented some killer work that I assisted them with and they'll be graduating next week pending my evaluations.
Acquired while overseas a beautiful Ethan Allen set of chests of drawers and tables and stuff... FO FREE.
Ditching work to go wine tasting in the South tomorrow. Going to Ljubljana again but this time as a work thing. Going to Berlin for 5 days shortly after that.
then it'll be July which means the end is nigh!
sure i'll bite. it's part of a network of traits that contribute to a social hierarchy.
