Confession: I can be a pretty forgetful person. I’ve been known to occasionally leave my wallet and phone behind on my way out. Usually fate is on my side and some good Samaritan delivers my possessions back to me. No such luck when I lost my work badge and Clipper (public transit) card this week. It’s been hellish trying to replace the latter and transfer my employee transportation benefits. Blah blah blah. Lesson learned. If a card case is falling apart, replace it before you start losing things!
Beyond recovering from this ginormous headache, I’ll also be spending this weekend workshopping, painting, researching, and hanging out with friends. Low-key and leisurely… I’ll enjoy it while I can!
