I've been having an incredibly unlucky time lately. I'm hoping my bad luck has worn out and I'm trying to keep a positive attitude, but seriously...
In the past 7 days I have... taken a bad fall while running and smashed my iphone to bits, realized that my foot is actually seriously injured from that fall, gotten stranded at an impossibly loud grunge/punk/screamo/not my style/ show for about 7 hours, fell on my bad foot AGAIN.. probably happened because I can barely walk and tripped due to the way I'm walking, and left my favorite sunglasses on a bus in Manhattan.
I did get the sunglasses back because my friend Niki is eternally optimistic and calm and smart and figured out how to find them.. on a bus in Manhattan. I mean, those things should have been long gone. (Also, a very nice bus employee helped us out after several people completely ignored us.)
Blah. I did get to spend a good 3 hours in Shenandoah National Park this weekend with Niki and it was beautiful (see?) but I would have loved to do a little hiking, but I can't walk so..
Niki took that photo of me looking out at the Blue Ridge mountains. Marissa, Kate and I hiked to the highest peak in the photo back in July.. it was pretty amazing to be back in the area again.
It was also amazing to spend a weekend with Niki even though it wasn't exactly the weekend we expected. It was an adventure. That is for SURE.
