From Here to There
An Ambitious Adventure in Life, Style, and Everything in Between

You will notice this is the inaugural post of the From Here to There series. Jaded in Emerald City will obviously be retiring now since I am back in
for my senior year of college. Honestly, this name From Here to There came to me just now and seemed an appropriate title for a blog about this time in my life. I could’ve thought of something corny to call it about the sun or the beach, but that’s just so not me at all. Jaded In Emerald City, while still emphasizing the pseudonym of the city I was in this summer, also said a little something about my adventure there. It’s not really about the place so much, but more about how the physical place I am residing in affects the place I am in my life. From Here to There is just so thoughtfully provocative to me personally in that it begs the question, “Here to Where?” I have no idea! The pure kinetic potential is abundant for the moment. That’s what is so great about it. J Of course, the name is subject to change because I am very indecisive and if I think of something better I’ll change it. But, I just wanted to give you guys the idea behind the name. Florida
In other news….I am thoroughly exhausted at this point. I dragged all of my possessions collected in Seattle through SEA-TAC and back to Jacksonville and left the very next day (without even unpacking) for Ft.
Lauderdale, where I am now sitting in the Hyatt writing this.
I decided I may as well live up the rest of my summer while I still can because school will be in session in just a few days it seems! I actually love being back in
, believe it or not. The humidity and the blistering sun and the smells are just home to me. It seems sort of right, which makes me question everything now…great… Florida
Anyway, the reason I am in Ft Lauderdale is because my brother is attending his last class in graduate school at NOVA Southeastern college this weekend before he gets his diploma and my Dad and I tagged along and are hanging out here. Tomorrow we are considering driving down to Biscayne Bay and
South Beach to see . As long as I’ve lived in Miami , I’ve actually never been there so I am really excited and hopefully I’ll get some great photos as well! Florida

P.S. NOVA’s library is one of the largest in the state. We went in today and saw work from this great mixed media artist! His name was Peter Max and I posted some of it below. It was amazing!
