I don’t always love the summers here because they tend to be hot and sticky. I’ve mentioned in the past, I like the cool air. In past summers I would tend to stay inside a lot, and unapologetically so! I don’t have to like sunshine and humidity. I shouldn’t force myself to be out in it if I don’t want to. But, this summer was so different. I took every opportunity to get out and do shit, and it was the best summer ever. So if you’re looking for a way to kill time on this Friday, here’s my summer recap.
RIP Vita.mn This event had sad consequences, apart from the obvious, in that I lost a job I loved and found difficulty the rest of the summer to get a routine again. The adjustment of changing jobs so abruptly is really hard. Kitten Forever @ AAW
We went to Duluth for our first anniversary and got into some nature!
I played a lot with my new camera this summer.
I shot my first music festival!
Annual “CampDos” trip with a bunch of our friends to Do Nothin’ Campground in Wisconsin.
(this didn’t get blogged about, but the first weekend of July had us doing a Northeast Bar Crawl for a friend’s birthday, and seeing Dillinger Four on 4th of July at the Triple Rock. Punk rock weekend!)
Last minute cabin weekend with a bunch of pals!
The very next weekend I was in New York just walking around, totally sleep deprived the entire time, breathing in piss-tinged subway air… Typical New York.
It’s good to have friends who want to go hiking.
Also good to have friends who want you to take their picture…
…AND invite you to their rad family cabin for one last hurrah in the summer air.
WHEW. What a crazy couple of months. I did it right, summer. I did it right. And hey, you can even see how my camera work improved from May – August.
