December has been a month of endings, as it usually is. The end of the year, but also the end of the semester, the end of my time in the Uptown apartment, and the end of my time in Chicago, at least for a little while.
The month started with Renegade, the moved through the last weeks of the semester and a full scale photo shoot. Along with the end of school can saying goodbye to good friends, classmates, and co-workers. Some of these people I’ll see in LA in a few months, but others were hugs to last for a long time away. I will miss them all terribly. Yes, the internet helps, but chance meetings are rather infrequent on facebook (we should all switch to Twitter and Google+).
Meanwhile, I packed up my apartment to the tune of Annie and cleaned the place like I don’t think it’s ever been cleaned before — with mom’s help of course. A whilrwind of family and boxes has followed me to San Francisco where I am uncertain of where to settle in to. My time here so far has been saturated with good friends, lots of tea lattes, and a healthy dose of rain.
Christmas was tons of fun and has left me now working on projects and watching lots of TV (and not all that I’m in control of either). I’m now wrestling between trying to come up with a schedule for myself for the new year and wanting to leave my time more open. So many decisions, so little time.
