day 1624 – matters matter

my outfit of the day going to the all important vdl 10 years celebration. this is a night i will remember because i am sober for the duration of the social. getting to see all the old faces who came before my time and helped guide this league into what it is ten years later. the growth of this league is amazing and it was only made possible because this committed group of people came together to build a community. i am truly happy to be a part of the building team because vdl has given me so much in return

the long weekend continues and i get the privilege to sleep in without worrying about my alarm clock. woke up to see updates from my parents with photos of where they are at. the latest update has them in paris doing all typical tourist things, which makes me jealous and wish i could be traveling as well. what makes me most jealous is they will be watching french open live and witnessing federer play live is something i am longing to do
