Ariane  Living the island dream.

You can't sit with me. @haranasurf

The first time in over a week that I saw the sun upon waking up. The island has missed you, Mr. Sun; we don't want any more πŸ’¦β˜”οΈ.

#throwbackthursday: On my 32nd birthday, I was on this mountain and talking with a friend about life choices and what our lives were all about. My life, at this point, revolved around my career. I was passionate about my job, but I worked a grueling 50-60 hours a week. The conversation struck a chord and stayed with me long after I got back to the city. A couple of months later, I decided to quit and take a long break. I had always wanted to live in a surf town, so I finally went "fuck it," left everything behind, and moved to an island I had fallen in love with the previous year. That has been one of the best, if not THE best, decisions I've ever made.
Even if we enjoy what we do for a living, at the end of the day, it is *just* a job. We have to make time for play and our passions and dreams. It is something I constantly remind myself of when I stay late in the office or I catch myself working at home when I should be relaxing or doing other things.
There is more to life than our jobs, careers, and professional achievements. Learn to draw the line somewhere or else life will just...pass us by.

Yesterday afternoon was too windy for surfing. So, @bhrettalina and I went to see this incredible waterfall, which involved wading through 2 dams and a river, all with ice-cold water.

Once in a while, I actually like what I see when I look out my apartment window.
