Today, after some cleaning and unpacking, I went to Saigon Restaurant in Sacramento with Kyle and Joe to get some good Pho. It was SO good! Perfect for a cold, rainy day. I especially loved the flavor of the broth after adding some lime and sriracha. Yum!

Today, Kyle and I road tripped up to Davis. On the way, Kyle read some of Mitch Album's For One More Day to me like my own personal book on tape. We stopped at a gas station and I took this picture in the rain. Once we got to my house, we watched Moonrise Kingdom while eating some TJ's fettucini and snuggling on the bed. What a wonderful end to a long day.

I am leaving tomorrow to head back up to Davis. I went bowling with John and Chris Keller at Tustin Lanes' Rock n Bowl and got (I think) the highest score I have ever achieved: a 147! A few beers later I didn't do quite so well, but I was very excited about my 147.

     Today, my picture comes not from one I personally took, but one that I found on someone else's facebook. Kind of creepy, I know. Anyways, this same concept came up yesterday when playing a card game with friends, when a friend complained that no one called out a person on their lie in the game despite the lie being pretty obvious. I told her "Well you didn't call them out either." So when I saw this today, I immediately thought of that moment, but also connected this to my life in general. It is easy to see problems around me, and it is easy to blame others for not fixing those problems. This life really is about individual people, the impact they can have alone, and the impact that groups of people working together can have. Change really is initiated by a single person, and I need to constantly realize that I can and should act to change and affect my surrounding world. I just love this photo and the thoughts it caused to race through my mind.

     Today I went to Torrey Pines beach with Kyle and the rest of the Green family as part of my last day in San Diego after spending New Years there.
