Happy Friday! I don’t know about you, but this week went by insanely fast for me. I worked hard, finally got some good sleep, and got to have a little much needed down time, which is great since this weekend’s forecast is extremely busy.
-I was really stressed out at the beginning of this week. So much so that I had to back out on an improv show last minute, which I absolutely feel terrible about. When it came down to it though, sometimes we have to make difficult decisions and put ourselves first.
-I’m having a really difficult time with balance. Between two jobs, writing, and attempting to do things to keep a healthy mind and body, I often feel so overwhelmed. Sometimes I want to just crawl under my covers and not do any of it.
–Sweet boyfriend. I know he was on my list last week, but he has really outdone himself this week. When I was on the verge of a meltdown earlier this week, he surprised me with flowers.
He always makes sure that I have plenty of healthy foods to eat and knows just what to say to make me feel better.
–Opportunity. This week I’m especially grateful for the opportunities that I’m given to do incredibly cool stuff. I have a pair of badges to the Moontower Comedy fest, and laughter is exactly what I need this weekend. I’m also going to the Busby Foundation’s Crawfish boil on Saturday and I CANNOT WAIT to get my crawfish on.
–Beautiful weather. It doesn’t get any better than this in Texas. See yesterday’s post.
–Inspiration. As busy and stressed out as I have been, I’ve not been lacking for creativity. I may not have the time to create, but the ideas are flowing right now and I couldn’t be happier about it.
Eating-I’ve totally been bitten by the fruit bug (can you imagine how cute that would be?) and am eating fruit like it’s going out of style. Pineapple, berries, grapefruit, oranges-you name it-I’m eating it. It probably isn’t the best choice, but I’m also really enjoying topping it off with some non-fat whipped cream.
Drinking: Thanks to high-brew-I’m all hopped up on the caffeine this week and loving it. One of the many perks of working in radio is the amazing food and beverages that sometimes show up as a surprise. High Brew brought by a bunch of their coffee drinks, which I am completely addicted to, and I haven’t let up since Monday.
Watching: The Last Man On Earth: How did I miss this hilarious gem of a show? Probably because I don’t have tv. I do have Hulu, and was really pleased when this popped up on my suggested watch list. It stars Will Forte, January Jones, and Kristen Schaal and is the best tv I’ve seen in a while. It’s way more off-beat than it is sci-fi, but it’s definitely worth a watch. Plus, all the episodes are currently available on HULU, so you can start from the beginning and binge away!
Loving: This cute little frog that I found whilst Matt was grilling the other night. Don’t worry I didn’t keep him, but we did share a lovely moment.
I’ve once again completely failed at meeting my workout goals this week. I’m telling you, there just aren’t enough hours in the day. Fuck it. There’s always tomorrow.
