brain dump

according to wikipedia a brain dump is:

  • Generally, the transfer of a large quantity of information from one person to another or to a piece of paper can be referred to as a 'brain dump'.
  • In slang, it can describe a hurried explanation of a system, job, skillset, or other software engineering subject.
  • In computing, the phrase describes the taking of a snapshot of the internal state of a knowledge database for transfer or archiving purposes. Thus, the copying of any dataset might be called a 'brain dump' if its contents could be colloquially referred to as a 'brain'.
  • In blogs the phenomenon is growing faster than ever and is allowing an outlet for people to publish their own thoughts and feelings. Blogs are in that sense also a braindump. They facilitate, rather than encourage, the expression of free and unedited thoughts.
basically there's alot of things on my mind so this blog is pretty random.

i've decided that blogs with pictures are much more interesting than blogs without. i've realized that my blog doesn't have many pictures. that will change. above is my favorite polaroid i've made so far. it was taken in amsterdam.

there are alot of things on my mind at the moment:

im really really ready to grow up.
plans work well. i need a plan.
the first two posts have nothing in common. well maybe they do. but it was unintentional.
i was supposed to sew a dress this summer using my own sewing machine and only after reading sera's blog did i remember this goal. maybe if i finish packing early....
sustained. why will my flesh never be sustained? 
saving money is definitely not my forte.
exercise needs to be a part of my weekly routine again.
Jesus, i need You. You and only You

some things (of the many) i will miss:

vanilla chia at alta. this beautiful place. my best friend.
my favorite! Branyn Elizabeth Bollman-Ortiz.

"And the Lord will guide you continually and satisfy your desire in scorched places and make your bones strong; and you shall be like a watered garden, like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail."
Isaiah 58:11
