Sunday Bests: Worse Before It Gets Better

Continued Anxiety (from last week) I worked alllll day on Wednesday night and took myself to Purify Sauna Lounge. On the way home, 8 at night, I had a blowout on the freeway. Thankfully, I got my spare put on quickly, but, because I instinctively stepped on the brake, I slammed into my dashboard screen and cracked the touchscreen. The display is still working yet … Continue reading Sunday Bests: Worse Before It Gets Better

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

On Wednesday, I went to trivia night … Continue reading Sunday Bests: Last Week of Summer/One Last Tan

Sunday Bests: 5 Years of Teaching and Too Much Wine

Last week was the close of year 5. I remember how I wanted to teach high school in Huntington Beach, but a different opportunity came around and it has been perfect. Perfect doesn’t mean it was easy. Perfect means It’s closer to home – 20 minutes instead of 45 minutes! I came in with 12 other new teachers and we keep in touch even though … Continue reading Sunday Bests: 5 Years of Teaching and Too Much Wine

Sunday Bests: Self-Work & Community (LA & San Diego)

Before I recap my weekend, I should mention that I made a big change this week – I ended my romantic relationship. It started last Cinco de Mayo and I can’t doubt I grew and learned a lot. Unfortunately, there was a lot of frustration in a portion of the relationship that has never seen better days in the time we were together. More on … Continue reading Sunday Bests: Self-Work & Community (LA & San Diego)

Sunday Bests: Rest, Rejuvenate, Rally

Last week was busy and it left me depleted. I was completely exhausted at the beginning of the week – on Tuesday, I came home and immediately laid in bed, showered, and got back in bed. I felt similarly exhausted on Wednesday. I was hungry so I treated myself to comfort food (‘healthy’ orange chicken). I had a bit more energy so I took an … Continue reading Sunday Bests: Rest, Rejuvenate, Rally
