And just for a moment, I was able to get lost in it...
"We venture through the streets
in search of funky beats."

From the Pacifics by Digable Planets. 
Please don't bullshit me.

"Dream on,
Dream on."

From the song Dream On by Depeche Mode.
This is Juby, my sister and brother-in-law's dog.

They're currently in China for a business trip for a few weeks, so I'm watching their office and also house/dog-sitting for them here in New Jersey. It's been nice because my sister got Juby while I was living in Thailand, so this is the first time I've been alone with her for a large chunk of time. 

As a professional couch surfer, it's been nice to hang out with so many dogs along the way.

"Thank goodness I found the good in goodbye."

From the song Best Thing I Never Had by Beyonce.
"Rose: You know what's also a shame?
Dorothy: What?
Rose: When you sit down and your thighs squish out to twice their size---that's a shame!"

From the sitcom The Golden Girls. Episode "End of the Curse."
Whatever, man.

Just a few more weeks until magazine heaven.

Ah September issues, I'm ready for you!
"It was metal on mental,
It was somethin' in my heart."

From the song Subway by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

My first week back home has been amazing so far.

When you have good people in your lives, nothing else matters.
