Just got back from a 10-day trip to Spain. Many, many photos to come, but let me just say two things:
1. Being internet-free for nearly two weeks is one of the best things that could happen to anyone. It was great to pass my time reading, drawing, and writing, or in any case focusing on ONE THING AT A TIME, instead of living under the permanent illusion of productivity while letting the multitasking devils take over my body.
2. I am now a firm believer in karma: during our trip, every single one of my friends suffered immensely from mosquito/general bug bites. Seeing as I’m used to being a perpetual target for all the unsightly critters of the world, I boarded the return plane with a big smirk, announcing that – for once! – I had not been bitten or stung a single time during the trip. Two days later, my arms/face/legs/chest are covered in what appear to be mosquito bites. Literally covered. So, yeah. Either it’s karma or the powers that be will just not let me be a smug jackass.
