The two and a half months since my last post have flown by. Really, before logging on to my site today I thought I posted one month ago. As much as the days can drag on—and even the weeks—the months are gone so fast.
But I didn’t open up my laptop to talk about time (maybe another day) or my other go-to topic, the weather (although we just had likely our last cool weekend before summer hibernation). I’m in the mood to write and chat about life lately. I’m just going to dive in.
Not much to say here other than I’m finding my way. The people are what keep me going— they are pretty great :) Working at a digital agency is not something my routine-lovng, type-A self always jives with (AKA change is the only constant). In general, I’m still trying to decide what I enjoy doing and I get frustrated with myself because I don’t know what I want…what industry, role, location, etc. Bleh. I’m just as lost as the next millennial, so I guess I’m right on track.
WHY do they send us to college at 17/18? I often wish I had a more direct education path (like science or law) but I guess there are benefits to having “a sea of opportunities.” My career path is a constant TBD so chances are I’ll keep you in the loop. Also I’m still learning work-life balance and it’s not super easy for me.
The GOOD Fest
Two weeks ago I flew up to Philadelphia for two reasons: 1) To visit my grandparents and 2) To attend the GOOD Fest. The combo made for the best weekend. For the first time in a long time I felt like myself (which is weird to say because I’m obviously never anyone else). Probably because I wasn’t overthinking things.
The event was on Saturday so I spent Thursday evening and Friday exploring the city, visiting family, and hanging out with my friend Christina from Addicted to Lovely. It was such a treat to meet her in real life and talking off-line. She kept me up way past my bedtime but I didn’t even notice because it was such good company :)
The Good Fest itself was incredible. It was in the most beautiful venue with white brick walls, flowers, and natural light. The day started with yoga and Pilates followed by speakers, lunch, and more speakers. I really couldn’t pick a favorite speaker—pretty much every topic struck a chord with me. The topics ranged from career to positive self-talk to meditation. My only regret is not taking notes! Although, the real highlight of the day was getting to meet and connect with other attendees.
The speakers were: Sara DiVello, Cassandra Bodzak, Katie Horwitch, Katie Dalebout and Jessica Murnane
After the event, I treated myself to an evening CorePower yoga class. By “treated” I mean it was $30 and I really didn’t need it. I wanted to move after sitting all day and CorePower is everywhere EXCEPT Florida. I loved it—it reminded me a lot of my Baptiste studio in Miami.
Sunday was an early flight out of Philadelphia and I was back to Florida by noon. It was a fun-filled, happy weekend.
Pictures of meals have been few and far between. I haven’t been into it lately, but I think that’s allowed. Actually, my camera roll doesn’t have anything too special. Mostly screenshots of Instagram quotes/memes and photos of my dogs. I wanted to touch on food because it is part of “healthyish” but maybe the healthyish-est thing I’m doing is not taking many photos? I will also admit to being lazy.
Rapid fire of favorite things from the last two months:
-Clementines. I’m not sure how they are still in season, but I’m still eating them.
-Back-focused workouts. Back is my favorite muscle to train! I love this move.
-Beauty and the Beast. I thought it was so well done. I had the songs stuck in my head for weeks!
-This (serious) quote. I’m not a huge quote person because they’re often too cheesy for me, but this has been a go-to for years.
-This (funny) quote.
-Big Little Lies (I’m almost done with 13 Reasons Why too, but I liked BLL better…obviously very different topics)
-Bitmojis. I’m single-handedly trying to bring these back.
Ok, this felt good. Not much substance but a quick check-in….and definitely not “everything since we last spoke.” Leaves more room to catch-up.
I hope you have an awesome week! If you have a second to comment, tell me something good.
