Making: salads from the Whole Foods hot bar for lunch. I technically do this all the time so it’s not just a “lately” thing.
Cooking: very minimally. My kitchen here is the size of a tiny closet so it’s not too inviting for cooking, especially this week because I’ll be spending most of my time with my family.
Drinking: smoothies. I’ve been on a smoothie kick this summer. My favorite combo lately is kale + spinach + banana + mango + coconut water.
Reading: Born to Run. I went to Barnes and Nobles to buy a book to read on the subway and decided on this running “classic.” I always hear people (bloggers) talking about it so I figured it was a good time to try it out. But I’m a few chapters in and it’s hard to get into…
Wanting: to plan my weekends in advance. There are so many things I want to do while I’m up north but with my job schedule I can’t plan more than a few days ahead of time.
Wasting: time on the subway by closing my eyes or reading (see above). No cell service is actually kind of nice.
Enjoying: sitting on the couch every day after work. Cliche young-adult statement but the simple things are the best.
Liking: Crunchy Barney Butter. I currently have 3 jars of almond butter and they are all crunchy not creamy. That is something I never thought I would say.
Wondering: what my work schedule will be next week. This seems to be a constant “wonder.”
Loving: this sign.
Needing: a massage. This is completely a “want” not a “need,” but still…
Wearing: sweatpants and a Miami sweatshirt. My go-to lazy outfit.
Noticing: that if I want to avoid crowds at Whole Foods I have to go right at 7 a.m. when it opens. Yes, I’m there at 7 a.m. It’s the perfect ending place for a run.
Knowing: how lucky I am to have this opportunity to work and live in the city.
Thinking: about my future. Too many deep thoughts that I don’t want to get into today. Maybe for Thinking Out Loud Thursday?
Feeling: tired. I come home exhausted every single day. This city can wear you down (in the best way possible).
