Let me just take a moment to make every "on brand" joke I possibly can.
The name of this blog began as an inside joke. I saw the word "yachtsman" on a paint sample card, and joked to a friend that it sounded like a Vampire Weekend song. Said friend and I joked about starting a band in art school called yachtsman, art school never worked out and I wanted to create a blog anyway, and the rest is history. Now I'm stuck with this ridiculous blog name, and until last week, I'd never even seen the ocean (though this is technically the gulf, but like, it's still the ocean and I'm sold). I've still never been on a yacht though.
I always knew I'd love the ocean. For years I've obsessed over photos and videos and songs. I was right. I'm hopelessly in love with the ocean you guys. Though I do love where I live, a pretty decent sized part of me now wishes I could run off to a seaside town somewhere. Maybe one day...
