sounds good to me.

"a great sorrow, and one that i am only beginning to understand: we don't get to choose our own hearts. we can't make ourselves want what's good for us or what's good for other people.  we don't get to choose the people we are."

{boqueron, puerto rico: sunset-watching, open toes, a breeze in the air, surrounded by 5 good souls. perfection.}

"in spanish, there is a word for which i can't find a counterword in english.  it is the verb vacilar... it does not mean vacillating at all.  if one if vacilando, he is going somewhere, but does not greatly care whether or not he gets there, although he has direction."

un viaje puertorriqueño

{the small town of boqueron}

{boqueron beach}

{playa sucia}

{a trip to san juan}

{crash boat beach}

featured above: a much needed break from the rigors of graduate school.  we stayed at a small beachside resort in the southwest corner of the island, in a small town called boqueron.  while boqueron (translated as "anchovy" in spanish...?) is no tourist-attracting // cruise ship-porting san juan, the six of us quickly fell in love with the tiny little town.  we charmed our way to free drinks at will's restaurant, almost adopted a stray puppy from alex at galloway's, made a bad name for all american girls while paddle boarding with ignacio, and caught a free ride to the rental car place with manny.  we drank piña coladas and ate tostones all of the days, explored the crystal clear depths of las playas, karaoked to bon jovi with some locals, and were so sad to say goodbye to our tiny corner of the island that we had made our own when the 7 days were up.  

now back to the grind and some summer internship decision-making.  ciao!
