Friday has never looked better. Yes, that’s all I’ve got for today’s intro…this week wore me out. I’m heading out-of-town for the weekend but first, I need to tell you about a few things from my week.
Five Things Friday: Highs & Lows Edition.
High: Going to the Saturday Night Live Exhibition with my friend. The exhibit took you behind the scenes of a week at SNL starting with the writing process and progressing to the set design, costume design, rehearsal and finally the show. The staff basically works 24 hours six days a week. Sunday is time to “rest, recover and get ready to do it all again.”
Low: Buying a new shower towel because I was too lazy to do laundry. This is my real life, people.
High: Seeing Late Night with Seth Meyers! My friend got very last-minute tickets for us to go to the Tuesday night taping and it was a blast. The guests were B-list (Sir Ben Kingsley, Mike Birbiglia and Senator Lindsey Graham), but still cool to see live.
Low: Cell phone use was extremely prohibited, even in the waiting area. If security saw someone take a picture they had to watch them delete it from their phone. Not sure why it was so strict because the waiting area wasn’t that special.
High: Going to a new ClassPass class called Fitness Runs. It was an outdoor running class in Central Park. I went to the RUN + YOGA class so it was 30 minutes of running drills (think short sprints and bodyweight movements) and 20 minutes of yoga. It wasn’t much running at all, but more performance and technical work…which is so important but I typically neglect.
Low: This Instagram. I could write a whole post on my thoughts (I just might), but overall I was very disappointed in Self. I am a magazine-junkie but I’m getting sick of this type of content. BUT to counter this low, I then saw the new cover of Women’s Running Magazine (see below). More than just featuring a “normal” (I hate that word, but go with it) woman on their cover (who is gorgeous), they didn’t really call attention that she didn’t have a typical runner’s body, which I like. These things should be accepted and, while praise is good, should be standard by now. #end rant
High: Three cartons for FIVE DOLLARS. I walked in for a water bottle (literally) and left with three cartons of blueberries.
Low: Having to write a 10-page paper for my summer class. Guess this is a rude awakening for the upcoming semester.
High: These sweet potato fries from Lyfe Kitchen.
Low: That I finished said sweet potato fries.
*BONUS HIGH: I’m going to Rhode Island this weekend to see my cousins, Sarah and run a half marathon. All good things, all good things.
