what makes a good day
today i felt very present in my life. it seems the less time i spend on the internet, the better my day is. today wasn’t particularly remarkable, but it felt very real.
i made music all morning, watched an episode of 30 rock, read a chapter in ‘a clockwork orange’, played with puppies, talked with my girlfriend, went swimming, found a gym(!), made a delicious italian dinner with my indian housemates, and even made some work calls.
i’m particularly appreciative of the newlywed indian couple i live with. in addition to being great people who fill me daily with tasty indian food, they are a very entertaining couple to observe. they always keep things interesting and (along with their new puppies) provide great company.
i recently passed the 3-month mark for my stay in ghana; i’ve enjoyed my time so far. and i’m definitely looking forward to more days like this.
