“Wrong eyes”

“Wrong eyes.”

(What I told myself during a lucid dream last night. I was flying, things got dark as I flew higher, so I thought “Open your eyes,” only to find myself staring at the bedroom ceiling while still dreaming.)

Came across a moose eating a tree

Diary entry from January, 18, 2011, Wasilla, Alaska: While on a walk this morning I came across a large moose. It was just standing there, eating a tree. I didn‘t bother it, and it didn‘t bother me.

Had to go outside to see what apartment I live in

The crazy thing about moving so many times is that I just had to go outside to see what apartment number I live in, so I could order something from Amazon.

Day one in the new apartment (Broomfield, CO)

Five years ago I moved to Colorado and was living in two hotels, one on the south side of Denver and another on the north side, trying to decide where I wanted to live. On this day (October 11th) I moved into my first apartment in Broomfield, and made this post on Facebook:

“Day one in the new apartment, slept on the floor, and there’s nothing to eat. Planning skills are still questionable. But the fireplace is nice.”

One of my favorite traffic signs in all of the world

This is one of my favorite traffic signs in all of the world. You can find it if you drive north from Anchorage, Alaska towards Wasilla and Palmer. When I lived in Alaska in 2010-2011, I would take the exit to the right to go to Palmer. If you keep going straight you’ll go to Wasilla, then Willow, Talkeetna, and eventually Denali and then Fairbanks. (If you’re really gung ho, as I was, you can also drive to Prudhoe Bay, if you don’t mind 400 miles of dirt roads.)

And as you can tell from the highway numbers 1 & 3, there aren’t many main roads in Alaska. :)
