I’ve decided to do another Whole30 round in August. Since there’s not much else going on in my world, I needed something new to focus on. July was busy with a quick trip to Washington for 4th of July, BFF visiting for 10 days over my birthday, and a weekend trip to Milwaukee to see my college bestie. I packed a lot into one month … Continue reading Whole30: Round 3
I have other drafts going, per usual, but instead I’m writing new. I’m currently sitting in my backyard, watching the fire die in my fire pit that I built myself (!) on a perfect summer evening of 75 degrees. There’s a slight breeze, the birds are chirping, and the faint sound of traffic drones on. I hear neighbors talking intermittently and I sit here thinking … Continue reading I don’t know – an update I guess
It’s ironic how much I’ve been agonizing over my 2020 post and feeling so lost on what all to write, and I hadn’t given a thought on my 2019 recap post. However, I always find my words forward when I look back. Man, how to even encapsulate it all? Fun stuff: I went to Ireland I knew going into 2019 that it was going to … Continue reading 2019: Soar – Recap
Ah, here we are again. Q3 was a big one, so I sure as hell hope that I can remember everything that happened. Develop well / peaceful existence: – Carving out time for writing/reading I’ve still been reading but it’s been slow which is fine. I continue to add books to my “to read” list, and I know once winter hits, cozy nights in my … Continue reading 2018: Thrive – Q3 Recap
Holy cow. I did it. I did the big adulting thing. I bought an effing house. INSERT ALL THE WIDE-EYED EMOJIS! Man, the past two months have been such a rollercoaster for me. Hence, my ghosting on this site for awhile. Though, I guess I’ve been absent most of the year, so…oops. I’m trying to get better, and that first step was creating a perfect … Continue reading I bought a house!
A couple months late, but finally posting: (the next post will explain more) So, the end of July has arrived. It has truly been one HELL of a month! I think I’ve experienced every human emotion possible and have said on multiple occasions over the past 30 days: “This the best month ever!” and “This is the worst month ever!”. It’s been a lot. I … Continue reading July recap
Apparently it’s a thing. I don’t really follow horoscopes and the moon cycles, but I remember the last time I was feeling shitty, someone mentioned that we were in retrograde. And it just happened again tonight. The past 6 days have been pretty hard for me. I wouldn’t say I’m in a depression per se, but I’m definitely feeling in some form of a funk. … Continue reading Retrograde
Hi, hello, it’s birthday month!!! More specifically, MY BIRTHDAY! I’ve always been a big fan of my birthday, unlike some people who try to tell as few people as possible, I try and tell everyone. Well, kind of. I’m not obnoxious about it, but for those I love and trust, yeah, they know. Surprisingly, the older I get, the more I enjoy celebrating my birthday, … Continue reading July: The Month of the Plan!
I wrote this post a couple months ago after a particularly life-changing weekend. Finally ready to post. This past weekend was joy. It was filled with laughter and new friends, art, snow, and a faint heartbeat of melancholy. I went to two exhibit openings this weekend, at two different places. At the first one, I was in a group of 4 new friends and it … Continue reading “You’re in the family now. Be a contributor, not just a consumer”
Wow, can you believe first quarter is done?! It feels both like the longest and shortest quarter. I feel like the older I get, the more I use the phrase “time is flying by!” and it kind of scares me. But I think I’ve been making the best of it despite my first winter back being the snowiest winter that Michigan has seen in awhile. … Continue reading 2018: Thrive – Q1 Recap
