Ahh good morning my lovely perverts, did you miss me?
If you didn’t know I took three weeks to go on a cross country road trip. If you do know me, I hate being trapped in the car for long periods of time. So then why would I subject myself to a road trip? I’ll tell you why, because I got to experience nature like never before.
So my journey started one late Saturday night after working a catering event for 50. Remember that peek into my private life paragraph on my home page? Yup I did it, my side hustle of having a small catering company is taking off! I’m taking all the credit here but its really a team effort. I digress. So picture this I have just been making delicious food for the most fabulous gay couple who are celebrating their 25 years of marriage!! Then afterwards I say fuck it who needs to sleep lets just get on the road now? Several hundred miles and hours later, I arrive at the Badlands. OMG did you know that prairie dogs make the most adorable meep meep noise??
After one glorious night of prairie dogs, I head to Yellowstone. I don’t know about you but I’ve never seen a bison up close and personal before. Bison are fucking huge, and they don’t give a fuck about you thats for sure. Side note anyone see that youtube video of a bison chasing a family and the parents abandoning their child to get rammed by the giant bison? Full circle there are signs everywhere saying wildlife are dangerous, do not approach. People are just so stupid sometimes.
So dumb people aside Yellowstone is really fucking pretty.
After my amazing adventure in Yellowstone I went to Burning Man. This was my very first time going to Burning Man as a participant instead of volunteering. It was a way better experience for me. Usually I go to Burning Man for over a month because i’m helping build the event. This time I showed up on the Monday of the event and left on Sunday morning. It was glorious. I had so many adventures and saw so much cool art. I rode my bike for miles and miles and watched the sun rise. Really I’m out here living my best life. It was my best Burning Man yet. Oh plus I got to sleep in AC the entire time so staying out all night and sleeping during the day wasn’t an issue. So I already think I’m funny but you should see me super sleep deprived and drunk on whiskey, then I really think I’m hilarious.
I didn’t take as many pictures as I wish I could have, but I was out there living the dream. So now I’m back in Chicago, recharged and ready to take on the world. Self care comes in many forms, for me its random adventures with the people I love.
