"Sounds of the Season Ending"

September 7th, 2022

Hi everyone. Just wanted to update you on a few things and share some pictures. I feel like I'm coming out of the slump I was in for a few months. I felt really lonely for a while, but maybe I've come more to terms with the fact that sometimes I just gotta be alone. I made a Turkish Yoghurt drink called Ayran. It was kinda disgusting, but that's just my palate, I reckon. I'll attach a pic below. It's like plain unflavored yoghurt with salt and water and you blend it so it's super foamy. Very tangy, effervescent type taste. Maybe I'll make it again to see if it tastes any better.

I've also been biking, or learning to bike. I vaguely knew how to as a kid but I forgot and have been relearning. I'm scared to embarrass myself, so I've gone at 2-3 AM. I've gotten okay enough to have biked to work tonight to visit. I only had to walk about a half of the way there and about a quarter of the way back. Still super nervy to interact with cars and stuff, too. I could barely turn before I really practiced today at a department store parking lot. I'm really proud of myself. Really proud. It makes me happy to succeed at something like this, and it allows me more freedom. Here's a self timer pic of me almost out of frame at the department store.

Safe Travels,
