"I didn’t fall in love with you. I walked into love with you, with my eyes wide open, choosing to take every step along the way. I do believe in fate and destiny, but I also believe we are only fated to do the things that we’d choose anyway. And I’d choose you; in a hundred lifetimes, in a hundred worlds, in any version of reality, I’d find you and I’d choose you."

Life & Death Stories: The Kontos family grave tombstone in Volos cemetery, Greece, was crafted in 1900 in the memory of the family`s three children who died of tuberculosis before they reached their 16th year. Being an upper class family and in order to avoid the social stigma, they announced that the children were poisoned during breakfast by a house gecko (lizard) who got in their milk, a version which became an urban legend in the area.

Their family grave tombstone was sculptured as an empty table surrounded by chairs, each one with the diceased child`s name carved on it, eternally awaiting for them to be seated for their last breakfast…

I am walking into September with wide eyes and an open heart, a summer’s worth of mosquito bite scars on my legs and back, and love on my lips. These past two months have been so full of learning, adventures, and growing (as an individual and part of a team). We learn patience and trust together and discover that we need to appreciate quiet moments with the dog on the porch and laughing like maniacs as we cut your hair in the laundry room at the end of long, tiring days - that’s how we get through. We work hard together and remember to apologize, respect, forgive, love wholeheartedly, and most importantly, that it’s okay for you to drop half a pizza face down on the kitchen floor because Bella deserves a treat and we have three other pizzas, or for me to stall the car because I’m still learning to drive stick. We make the best of it, really. What means the most is the support system that I have behind me - people who are in support of my teaching and music therapy dreams. September is the beginning of the final stretch and I am feeling so stable and in control. Here we go.

Yesterday was my last day with N&M, the kids I’ve been looking after since last April. We only had a three week run this year, but we did a lot of fun - dozens of crafts, some cool science experiments, reading and writing stories, board games, hide and seek, soccer games, learning to whistle, ride a bike, and sound out words. We also did a lot of learning about cause and effects of our actions, cooperation and sharing, and methods of problem solving. I’m proud of these kiddos and I’m proud of myself for being a person who they can look up to and a person who is always around to fix bike chains and scooters, make the best pb&honey sandwiches, and help them discover sides of themselves that they are still working on finding - like the sides that are able to get messy with paint or paper mache projects and not run from bees! Kendra gave me a card that said “I want to thank you for your never ending patience and for being such a positive role model to M & N. The problem solving you have shared with them is so valuable. Sharing your creativity and imagination is also somet look so forward to.” This is the sweetest family and I am so glad to have connected with them.

Guys I was just checking out some photo galleries of abandoned places in Ontario and reading some terrifying stories and I can’t sleep (because I’m a baby). Regrets. Should have bought a bottle of wine and played piano instead.

So, California lawmakers passed a bill yesterday which, in effect, forces universities and local law enforcement to more seriously and fairly pursue reports of sexual assault. It clarifies consent as an absolute (verbal or nonverbal) yes, nullifying the defense that “they didn’t say no.” It also dictates that intoxication is not a substitute for consent - so the “but they were drunk” excuse is out the window as well. If a person does not say ‘yes’ before sexual activity, then by California law, that activity is not consensual. 

The bill sets a positive precedent for other American states - providing a firmer guideline by which a judge can rule in cases of sexual assault and abuse. It alleviates some of the blame and stigma that can automatically fall on victims of sexual assault, and forces the court to treat the victim as a victim of a crime, rather than the voice of an unjustified accusation. Pretty cool. Good job, California.
