The title of this blog post is dedicated to every person that’s said some version of that phrase to me in the past few months, which is more people than I can count on two hands. It’s also honestly not a very useful or empathetic comment.
Long story short, my lease in California ended in August, at which time I packed up all my stuff into storage started living out of a suitcase. My travel schedule has been so hectic that it didn’t make sense to live (i.e. rent an apartment) either in California or in Chile (where I’m relocating for work) since my lease ended, so I’ve been crashing with friends/family when in the States and staying in my company’s visitor housing when I’m in my new home (La Serena, Chile).
But January is the month, when I will finally rent my own apartment, and get to live alone for the first time ever, because California is freakin expensive. Hooray!!
Anyways, I put together some December Chile happenings via a photo log for your entertainment and/or edification. The cover photo for this post isn’t actually the LSST observatory, it’s the Gemini and SOAR observatories a kilometer away on the same mountaintop (cerro), but I love the pre-sunset almost-full moon.
Plus some non-work-related happenings because work hard, play hard.
As much as I’m loving southern hemisphere summertime, I’m excited to head back to the States soon to enjoy the holidays and maybe even dabble in some snow sports. Merry Christmas everyone!
