Dear Glynis

Hi.
.
I feel like it has been a while and I have a lot to catch you up on.
None of it is particularly important.
.
I read this article and it made me feel so much better about liking my hair blond. Look how great this naturally dark haired lady looks with blond hair. And look how happy she looks. It made me feel less guilty about liking my hair dyed.
.
I went to a wedding. While at that wedding, pre-dance, there was a couple who was leaving. She asked me to dance a song for her. He said, “well, she is a really great dancer” in an actually serious and not sarcastic voice. I was both flattered and convinced he was just being nice and/or had never seen me dance.
.
Last week at work I was sitting in the crew talk and a guy asked our supervisor if you had to wear a high-vis vest if you were just going outside the back end door to go to the bathroom that is right there. The supervisor said, “technically you have to wear one any time you go outside the building.” The guy expressed annoyance. The supervisor then said, “well, we all have our cross to bear. And if you have to wear a high-vis to go to the bathroom, well that’s just too damn bad.”
It was probably funnier if you were actually there.

I spend a few weeks on night shift. I took this photo on one of them. I feel like it accurately portrays night shift.

I have spent a ridiculous amount of time cleaning out and moving in. I have rearranged my room and gotten rid of years worth of clutter. I think I am at about 7 full garbage bags of donated stuff and a 2-3 of stuff I just threw out. I am almost done. I am loving the de-cluttered life though. It is so amazing to have my room be open and clean. I am working on the final areas that need to be cleaned and then I will get everything back up on my walls. That is another thing I am doing: new artwork for my walls. Except for a few staples (Dylan, DiCaprio, and lion astronaut of course) I am changing things up. I’ll send you some photos when its all done.

You informed me a few months ago of the very sad fact that Towers and Trees was calling it quits due to a band member moving away. It was very sad news for me. Mostly because I was looking forward to more music and more shows. But also because when we saw them last I didn’t buy a t-shirt, or a vinyl copy of their album. So I decided the best thing to do was to just randomly email them through their website and ask if they would ship one to me. And they did!! It was so exciting. The main guy, Adrian, he sent me photos of all the shirts, and put everything together and mailed it to me himself. It was so wonderful. And he even sent me a bonus extra shirt. And the package arrived on my actually birthday. We were emailing to work everything out and his last email to me before he sent it ended with “Cheers and hope our paths cross again soon 🙂” I thought, that’s a nice thing to say. But I mean, obviously, the chances we will ever see each other again are slim at best. Then, when the package arrived on my actually birthday and had an extra shirt, I felt like I had to just send a quick email back to say thank you. He sent a quick reply back that ended with “Cheers Raiah! Here’s to hoping we cross paths again sooner than later.
So basically, I’m pretty sure we’re friends now. That’s how it works right? He said twice that he hoped we would see each other again. Haha. I am almost sure he doesn’t actually know who I am or remember meeting me. But why would he say it twice if he didn’t mean it, right?

Just before I left camp, me and Carlin filmed some fun videos.
Backstory: We found that we both had a certain mug at camp that we hated with a fiery, burning passion. We decided we would smash them. We spent a bunch of time talking about how we might smash them in a fun and epic way. We never actually got around to smashing them. On the last day of family camp we realized we hadn’t smashed them yet. We decided to throw them into the lake instead.
Enjoy!
