This is a draft from March 29, 2020 that I never got around to posting. It felt so good to be with my parents and have a backyard for Lu (for my dog). I came back to Seattle near the end of April. I was ready to get back to my apartment, but leaving was tough. I hiked a lot. I drank a lot of Topa Topa beer. Menudo Sundays. We’re coming up on a year in a pandemic and things still feel the same politically. Blessings that people in Seattle wear masks.
Dear sneaker journal, it’s me Jessie. The last time I asked a favor it was November 2018 when the Rookie of the Year 1’s dropped. I got em! These four’s look absolutely comfy- that color way alone *chef’s kiss!
My absolute favorite High School Basketball and summer travel ball teammates, Ash & Lex, join me to reminisce about the many hours we spent in our early teens commuting to play travel ball; we talk about Ash’s dream of writing children’s books, societal standards of beauty, and how Ash works at night to watch over her kids during the day as they attend school virtually.
I was feeling a little meh and not totally myself today, but my gewd fraand Lizzette came through to remind me that there’s always Only Fans and don’t go on a date unless you Facetime FIRST! 🙂
Here it is, hot off the press. This episode was recorded earlier today on December 28. It features my best friend and former professional athlete Alexis Crimes. In it, we discuss the power of athleticism, being freshman starters for our High School basketball team, and Lex finding her style. This is another pandemic phone call check-in, enjoy!
