Until my jobs start, I have a bit of free time, so Honza and I went up to Lake Tahoe on Friday to stay with my cousin Ilan at the Stanford family camp where he’s been working for the summer. It was absolutely wonderful—we got to hike in Desolation Valley and swim in isolated, clear, cold Lake Suzie, go out to the Brewery, drive by Emerald Bay, explore Tallac Historic Site and go...
back to school? no? boo...

I got to see some wonderful friends, sing my first ever bar karaoke (“The Whole World” by Outkast, in case you were wondering), eat a 5.99 lunch in Brighton Beach and...

Ludwig was being so cuddly all night and wanted me to hold him all the time, which was adorable. I’ll...
