i don't know if you can swim

i woke up at a startling 7:30 this morning and couldn't fall asleep again, so i rolled out of bed, grabbed a blanket and headed to the park. there's nothing like being up when everyone [you know] is sleeping.
still loving the book tess lent me.
if you don't know what flag that is, please stop coming to this website. :)
i texted dena to let her know i was there in case she wanted to stop by. she's the only other person i could think of who might be up that early. any time dena and my camera are in the same place, a photo shoot breaks out.
click on the photo above and check out that woman's sun gear. it's completely normal for women over 50 to be decked out in this outfit all summer long. long pants and puffy sleeves to cover your arms with a bandana covering your neck/face and a giant traditional hat.
i needed sunscreen today, it was so sunny out.

taiwanese boyfriend and i went to lunch at latini's today. jon and josh walked in while we were sitting there and i was just hoping they wouldn't sit within earshot. it's embarrassing to fumble through getting to know you conversations with your friends listening.
anyway he gave me a link to some of his photos online so now i have pictures to show you!
cute, no?
i'm hoping we'll eventually get past the language barrier/getting to know you questions and get a feel for each other's personalities. today we brainstormed about a million places he wants to take me before i leave taiwan.

p.s. looook how awesome the ACL lineup is this year! i just bought my 3 day pass.

yay! thanks :) and you can attest to the fact that the standard taiwanese male is not always the best looking fellow.

yes, tw males aren't all that great looking. many tw young people tend to follow japanese pop culture a bit too much.

i think the cute ones are very very cute and the not cute ones are very very not cute. i guess you could say the same thing about anywhere though.
