Life Lately | May

May was a month of freedom from, well, everything - plans, work, projects. I finished my internship at a refugee resettlement agency at the end of April and my next position in DC doesn't start until the first week of June, and with several weekends of canceled plans I found myself more often than not settled into my sofa crease with a stack of library books or sweating my way through a local garden. Knowing that the end of my spring in Raleigh was coming, I also set aside time to revisit my favorite local haunts and see a few neglected ones. In my mind, May felt like home; cognisant that I am soon leaving, I spent my time intentionally across my hometown and state in the places I love with the people I love. June will be a month of immense changes, but May felt like a place of familiar comfort.
