Monthly Archives: February 2015


Well. It’s over! It was brutal, exhausting, stressful, and everything I thought it would be and more.  But now-it’s done.  Time to get going on those March plans.  For now-couch.  Cookies.  Wine.

Hello, February

What a difference a weekend makes! Made a conscious effort to use this weekend as a bit of a re-set to gear up for the final three weeks. Enjoyed a bit of sunshine, water views and a great breakfast with David at the Ferry Building before a day of studying at the CV East Asian Library:





Sunday morning, David and I went for a loooong walk through a gorgeous redwood park just 20 minutes east of here:


And then-back to the library.

The time away from studying was really helpful. It felt so good to take time to be outside, just enjoying this gorgeous place together. It’s pretty serious here on out, but hoping this brief reset helps fuel me through the next three weeks!
