Jesus dying on a cross and rising from the dead to wash away our sins is the most important thing in my life. I didn't take any pictures today aside from the model number on our dishwasher and I don't have any apps that do fancy stuff with text, but I wanted to share these words with y'all. Happy Easter!
Was in Honolulu for work this week. It's a bit weird every time since a majority of people I see are on vacation and I'm usually dressed-up and in a much bigger hurry than everyone around me. This view from my hotel room whilst drinking a Maui IPA purchased from the ABC (it was an early night) had me thinking about all the stories going on in the hotel rooms around town. The people who've been saving for a Hawaiian vacation for years. The couple thinking about selling their house and retiring here. The family who comes annually. The regulars and the not-so-regulars. Hawaii is its own culture, for sure, and Waikiki is a strange mix of the very traditional blended into a version palatable for tourists. For a Hawaiian in 2017, is the tourists' Hawaii now part of the history? #views#mauibrewingco#honolulu#l8rgram
Congratulations to Dr. Dustin Stiver! Lots of long hours went into this mornings dissertation defense. Here is a picture of him and me enjoying a cup of coffee on a day when he definitely did not work on his dissertation. #DrGP#stdavids#staypositive
Listening to a podcast interview with Jeff Rosenstock (way more punk than us) and feeling thankful that I got to play in a band with one of my favorite dudes. Mostly getting to play really loud music and drink some cheap beers for free. We are still a band, technically, so maybe we'll play again sometime! #michellefromtheclub#tacoma#ghoulrock Photo credit: @beth_crook
