enfin's reality, music

& we’ll see how it goes

i finished saving the ocean officially- but i plan to continue my studies of sustainability in the gulf of maine- focusing specifically on the preservation of fishing culture- something i find incredibly important.  it’s ironic, the way the month turned out.  as i began my studies, i was filled with dread- in part due to the people i was with, and then because its easy to get depressed the more you learn about the current state of the ocean.  but i was pleasantly surprised- as was the majority of people i was with.  i can’t even begin to recap all of our shenanigans- both inside of the program and outside.  all of our trips to the tressels and to salmon falls were worth every minute of agony and worry.  i could not have asked for a group of better people to have spent the month with.  while we had our moments- what with insulting supertramp, and getting stitches, and having our tents flood- they are all outdone with the best times.  napping during the rain storm, sea kayaking, sniping whales- not literally, kicking ass in mini-golf, and are you hot mamas?, i will always remember.  especially the greek yoghurt.  i even enjoyed sitting in back of the black bullet and being forced into an erika sandwich.  adding onto that, i could even say i put up with odd mood swings, morning swims, beach fires, g-sesh’s, cookin’ tofu, jumping off things, 85spf, flower crowns, and bein’ on boats.  oh how pleased i was with all the greek yoghurt i consumed.  now i have a seven day rest until i jet off to south korea with a group of 100 kids.  it’s so crazy.  non-stop this entire summer.  but that’s the best way, if not the only way.  but yes, as the wisest always say, we’ll see how it goes.

i hope it goes in a direction that i can appreciate.  even though my grandmother has clearly stated that right now is the best time to play the field.  i am not sure if i understand/agree, but que sera, sera.  i have been writing and taking photos, so i need to keep some cash handy, so i can develop all my film.  i’m starting to believe that this may in fact be the best summer i’ve ever had.  so keep it coming summer gods, keep it coming.

sooo hooot

hoooooootttttttttttttt

hoootttttttttttttttttttttttt outside.

sailed to cliff island today, and rode around on the back of a pickup truck, almost fell out, ate some scrumped raspberries, jumped off the ferry dock, and scraped my knee up real bad and rad. sunburned and possibly dead. so tired. falling asleep now.  could use a real snooze. tomorrow 4 hour boat ride. then thursday and friday scuba diving.  guess what the weekend brings? a campout on long island with a rather lovely group of people, and then i’m gone… starting monday for 13 days to walpole, bristol, pemaquid, and stonington.  oh shnap.

dearest, oh dearest.

craving some stuffed peppers and iced nice coffee.

i keep blogging right before i go to bed, and then while in the midst of a terribly good sentence, i fall asleep. shame on enfin for not realizing this trend. anyway! happy last day of avril. it’s been quite a short month- absolutely insane to think that i’ve gotten all the way to late spring and early summer. 2010, as i had wished when it was 2009, has not been up to par to be quite frank. there have been good moments and bad ones, but nothing defining- thus nothing that i will remember the year at this point. this past week has been busy, but certainly not my busiest- in fact, i feel as though i haven’t accomplished jack shit (to be blunt) at school. it only seems like i’ve played tennis- through wind, hail, rain and sunshine- oh and 32 degree weather. i’m still getting into the swing of things- seeing as this is my first week back from april break. three tennis matches- two practices, tonight… last match. i’m not planning on doing too much this weekend- seeing as i feel incredibly lazy right now, so lazy that it seems as though i’ve forgotten how to answer my telephone or even log on to facebook.

i went to SPACE wednesday, surprise surprise, right? it was Johnny Cash Tribute Evening which is held there every year.  all the proceeds went to the betterment of prisons in New England, and there were a bunch of kick ass bands there who spit out the best J. Cash and J. Carter songs. I danced and danced my little heart idle. Prior to that i visited bates- a small oasis in the town of lewiston (which i have always perceived to be trashy… but bates belongs in cambridge bitches). i know that i wouldn’t like attending there, but it was nice to get out of hell for a day.

i know that i’m being wordy… and i’m beating around the bush, so below is a list of truths i’ve been meaning to get out in the open for quite some time but have obviously had a bit of trouble doing:

-i lost my first tennis match
-i am applying to spend a month on the ocean during this summer, where a bunch of students as well as myself will be studying ways to help preserve the world’s biggest ecosystem- the sea.
-i still have writer’s block
-i definitely am not a team player
-i need to work on my attitude

there we go. out in the open. i’m so stoked (oh god, who am i turning into…) for the summer. i’ve been trying to figure out things to do and this would be great- although i am feeling rather pressured because i wanted to (and when i say wanted to… that mean i really wanted to) take a photo class, rent a darkroom at the bakery, be with meredith as much as i could be, work a regular schedule, beach and driving around and because i said that, driver’s ed, spend time in boston teaching le langue d’amour, and of course, go camping. who knows if i’ll even make it into this program- if i do, then wonderful! i’ll totally go about that and help save the ocean, but if i don’t than that’s wonderful too. i won’t be sore either way. i’ve been trying to learn that everything happens for some bigger reason, and i am no longer enticed to know why those sorts of things happen. if i could help change the world in some way, than i would most certainly do so. i hope though, that i will have fun (in fact, i know i will)! the good news about this program though is that its 4 days a week, and there is only one instance where it goes all 7.  the remainder of the week (ie 3 days) belong to me and i can go home etc. plus when we’re hanging intown learning, that means i can just go home when the day is done and do whatever i like then. oooh the advantages of being a child with no strings attached- i must say its a breath of fresh air.

enfinlove (i just gave y’all some)
