This summer looks promising. My crew has been laughing hard over camp dinner and making music together. My clothes are stained with camp fire smell and I’ve got it bad for the Oregon girl.
who has the technology to make a mixed tape? my car has a cassette tape player. I know there’s that thing you plug into a tape to your ipod, I don’t want that.. I want a well thought of homemade tape. please
on May 17th, I graduated.

big, busy days. more and better photos to come :]
I’m not sure how I feel about any of it,
but right now I’m staying at my mom’s house, then couch hopping/concert going, then to Niagara Falls with my partner before she starts her year-long job, then looking for jobs and writing, writing, speaking, writing, recording music, writing, speaking, writing, writing. Also got a new computer (21 inch Mac desktop WHAT), so you’ll see more of me (my old one was dying so I stayed away from the internet ;])
again, big days. but I’m alive and some semblance of happy among all this chaos :]
ya’ll are beautiful
I asked my dad to tend the kombucha I’ve been generating since January while I’m away. All you have to do is leave it alone and maybe add fresh tea and sugar once in a while if you feel like it. Today he sent me a blurry picture of the empty tea container so I asked if he at least saved the Scooby. He replied rut roo raggie.
I’ve been gone for less than a week and my belongings go down the drain and the container goes to the fish. god damn
so I just called up a farm to wwoof on and the man asked me if I was going to be working with RMYC this summer since I told him I was in the area for a saw crew and all. Turns out his wife Laura is the director for my new job.
The past few years I’ve met a handful of people, though it seems they’ve been predominately foreshadowed just briefly before I actually met them. Like our paths crossed until they inevitably weaved, as if they had to. I’d like to think so anyways.
coincidence makes it sweeter
an attempt at picture taking from ma to co /an attempt to not blow off the highway in a wicked rough thunderstorm in ks
today I was a big boy. I used the restroom in mid Missouri. the woman’s bathroom-the point is I had to pee in the bible belt, ok? I held the door open for a lady and her kid coming out and she’s like, “the men’s bathroom’s over there.” I told her I could read and when she heard my voice she apologized. I usually don’t say a word and continue to do what I’m doing but over the past month I’ve been questioned and stared constantly to the point where im playing situations back in my head and thinking why didn’t I do something? When the hunched old lady in the grocery line ahead of me called me young man and then asked me well you are a MAN right? I should’ve simply replied “sometimes.” when a young brother and sister followed me around target for ten minutes guessing my gender in my hearing range I should’ve told them it was none of their business and told their parents to teach their kids some manners.
I’m working on it
I also saw a tornado vertex forming (that’s the right word?maybe?) an hour before I got to my hotel room in Hays, Kansas. I thought I’d die. Good thing, I’ll be able to work on my come backs now.
my heart is going wild like I’ll see you or something
in my dreams
Don’t let anyone fool you: Life does not happen only on roadtrips with your friends in Europe or across the USA. Life does not happen when you graduate college or when you get intoxicated on the weekend. Life does not happen with the right mixture of drugs or the right combination of sounds that…

Golden Oak Farm
this is a lovely sustainable farm in Hatfield, just a healthy bike ride from Northampton center. If you’re looking for a summer WWOOF-ing position I’d highly recommend checking this farm out. Pam and her husband are really fun and could use and appreciate the help. They have a solar powered barn full of chickens of all breeds, raise grass fed cattle, and have a rich vegetable garden.
There are plenty of farms around the neighborhood and in surrounding towns if you’re interested in farm hopping too!
first good scare working in the fields. nothing like trying not to disturb the millions of spiders laying in the cover crop you’re kneeling on and thinking the mother of all spiders has landed in your hand/working space. frig toad. of course you peed on me. I love you
whistling some Andrew bird for the birds.
every single one of them stopped and inquisitively listened then chirped in applause. I melted. a request for a record player in the barn has been made/animal telepathy
*straight white guy voice* how is that offensive?
