Humidity, I know, but this. This is dry heat and it’s just something else.
Humidity might feel like a wall to some people, but this feels like a really hot embrace that just doesn’t want to let go.
At 9:00pm the sun had set and my phone still read 101F.
The quickest way back to the house is through a residential area. Houses are both wonderfully cozy and borderline hoarder status. Others look abandoned.
Then you feel it. The wind. It doesn’t cool you down. Instead it brings with it the stagnant atmosphere of a record breaking temperature day.
Suddenly I’m overcome with a familiar smell. It’s beautiful. I realize it’s Jasmine.
Jasmine scented embrace.

In Australia, the seasons start on the 1st of the month.
So summer is here and I think to make up for not really being around last year, it’s decided to start off extra warm.
It’s only December and I’m melting.

Back in Sydney after a great weekend in a surprisingly not cold Melbourne.
Throw in a little bit of shopping, and that was my weekend.
I had more than the usual amount of motion sickness on all of the flights, buses, and trains I took this weekend. How does everyone out there deal with feeling like your head is about to fall off while wanting to throw up everything you’ve eaten the past month?
I miss you already, Melbourne.

In not so surprising news, I’m spending my Friday evening at the airport waiting for my flight to Melbourne to board.
I hope that there is not a repeat of last trip’s one hour delay. Do you hear me, Virgin Australia? Please make your incoming plane arrive on time.

You arrived today, the 1st of June. We did not get much of a summer and fall was quite wet. But you’re here, and there’s nothing I can do about it.
While the rest of the world gets into their bikinis, the southern hemisphere begins to layer.
I wasn’t ready for you this year and thanks to a brand new heater purchased yesterday not working, I’m not ready for you this year. Still, you aren’t going to own me this year.
Please be kind.
