- get to the beach at least once
- make frozen lemon whips with blueberry-basil topping
- have a picnic near the Lincoln Memorial
- submit Fulbright application to Malta
- see the leaves change in New England
- finish reading Anna Karenina by Tolstoy
- get whisk tattoo


WINTER
- complete the 500 piece puzzle on my shelf
- read Ahab’s Wife by Sena Naslund
- present Allie’s baby with a 9’ paper-mache Mexican devil
- paint the “Shitwhore Series,” an acrylic ode
- make zucchini tarts with butternut squash soup


SPRING
- attend Cherry Blossom Festival
- have an actual birthday celebration, for once
- jump out of a plane
- go camping with the people I love

Childhood


This picture was taken about 14 years ago in the Outer Banks, NC. It's by far my favorite picture of myself.
