SECOND STEP: NEVER TRUST THE FIRST MAN YOU TALK TO

We took a bus to Mendenhall Glacier in Juneau, Alaska on Monday. The trail to the waterfall pictured was flooded and we stood there for a bit deciding if we should just walk through the water anyway to get to the waterfall. One guy was claiming within 15 yards the water was up to his knees before he turned around. "I mean, it could easily come up to your chests if you try to go all the way!" 
Yeah I'm not about to swim a mile in freezing waters. 
Guy #2 who hiked there and back told us the deepest part came up a little above his ankles. At which point we all gave guy #1 an eye roll and were on our way. Worth it, obviously.

As we were hiking back, we passed a group of 20 somethings and one of the girls pointed at John and said, "Look! That guy is a hipster"!
Super bizarre. 

STEP 1: EAT AS MUCH AS YOU CAN

Alaskan Cruise
Alaska has resurrected topsyandhavoc.com. Since the details and specifics of memories fade fast,  I know I have to document our Alaskan cruise soon...or I'm an idiot. 

Just this for now: We boarded the ship in Seattle on Saturday and immediately started shoveling food into our mouths. We were at sail for the rest of the day and all day Sunday. I already can't remember if it was Saturday or Sunday night that we danced our a's off in the club. "We" includes my mom and aunt. No one was on the dance floor, we were all just sitting around waiting for someone to get the party started. Finally a little old lady hit the dance floor and broke it down. She threw in an occasional skanky move here and there. That gave us the confidence we needed to pile on and dance to unedited versions of songs that I never knew were so raunchy. My mom was oblivious to all explicit lyrics, per usual. 

Monday we arrived in Juneau, got off the ship, and boom, we see this. Point two seconds to decide I love Alaska.

April, 2014. Right outside of Las Vegas. Now this is a color palette I can stand behind. 

AUDGE

Sister.

When she was four (?) she broke her femur and was in a body cast. She was basically immobile and she'd feel so lonely when I would have friends over and we'd go outside and play instead of play with her. I can't even think about it without feeling so so bad. Makes me want to cry and beg for her forgiveness. Even though I know she'd laugh and say don't feel bad and she never thinks about it. But I'm sorry anyway. 

But this best friend of mine. I love her and look up to her so much. She's a billion times smarter than me, is the best listener I know, roots for the underdog, and she'll out-wit your ass any day.
