Sunday Bests: Me at my best (at home, at work, with friends)

This was an insane week, but I showed up for it. It was even that time of the month! It was me doing my best, being a good enough teacher (2 of 4 periods are lovely, the other 2 kill me), and taking time to be with friends yet still getting activity and rest. Me, at home Me, at work Me, with friends Yelp 80s … Continue reading Sunday Bests: Me at my best (at home, at work, with friends)

Sunday Bests: A Lot of Miles & Traffic

I might’ve spent 7 hours driving to Carlsbad and LA (twice). It was worth it for the most part, but I was exhausted by the end of the weekend. I’m currently writing this in bed with a face mask on while watching Matt Does Fitness. After a long day at work, I immediately drove to Carlsbad for the Dames Collective Launch Party. I changed in … Continue reading Sunday Bests: A Lot of Miles & Traffic

I couldn’t stop making jokes and laughing, especially playing off kindred spirit Freddy. Saturday: Christmas events December 1st so of course we were allowed to do all things Christmas.

Leaning Into Friends (Day Trip to Temecula)

No one would ever say I have a “resting bitch face.” I have the opposite of that. I’m the opposite – happy, positive, and friendly. But it’s not what it seems and I too get tired and sad. My life sometimes feels like a romantic movie. Recently, I’ve struggled with some personal, existential stuff. I was trying to distract myself from my problems by supporting … Continue reading Leaning Into Friends (Day Trip to Temecula)
