A couple weeks ago when I left the blog on hiatus, I had needed to care of some personal things going on in my life. While I was away, I was staying with my sister (a Peace Corps volunteer) who lives in the countryside of the Dominican Republic. This was no vacation, my friends.
I'm talking no running water, spotty electricity, and I never once made it to the beach. It was serious business.
When I left, I was feeling an overwhelming sense of urgency to make, do, create, and come back renewed.
The difference in atmosphere was incredibly inspirational, and the sounds, sights, and colors were magical.
Leaving Chicago for a while was the best coincidence that could have ever happened to me.
Because of the slower pace of life, I was able to concentrate on creating and planning things for when I would return back to the states. Because internet was out of the question and I was getting antsy with things that I wanted/needed to get back to, I had returned with this incredible energy and eagerness to start.
