Here are five awesome things from this week!
- Instead of a typical Saturday brunch, the bf and I picked up a box of S'mores Pop-Tarts and took the bus to Washington Square. It was delightful, despite an overly friendly squirrel who kept checking up on us.
- After our "brunch," we saw Pitch Perfect 2 (which I had been hoping to see the week we wound up seeing Mad Max). I guess I was expecting it to be godawful because I came out THRILLED. Literally dancing, haha. Sure, PP2 pales in comparison to the original, but it was a fun romp nonetheless. Also, I love Benji. Also also, I need to find a tutorial for Hailee Steinfeld's makeup cuz girlfriend was gorge in a totally natural way.
- Bullet journaling. How did I not know about this before?! I'm awful at keeping up with planners (although one I ordered weeks ago on Etsy just arrived oops), and I have always have notes scattered here, there, and everywhere, in an effort to keep track of my life. FAIL. Enter Bullet Journaling, which is stupid easy. You just make a list of things to do each day, which, surprisingly hasn't been pressure-inducing for me. Instead, it's helped me keep track of all the little things I have to do on a regular basis and given me peace of mind that, if I don't do something today, I don't have to worry about it because I can just put it on tomorrow's list. Awesome. Thanks for introducing it to me, Kelly!
- I never used to wear shorts--I would wear jeans all.the.time, even in sweltering heat. I was really self-conscious of showing skin, even in a necessary, totally non-provocative way. I'm definitely embracing shorts now, though: it's the comfort of skirts without the risk of flashing! Bonus that these particular shorts make me look like I have legs for daysss (and I'm only 5'4"!).
- One of my dear readers and friends recently introduced me to the concept of the Enneagram, so I've been reading up on it. It's kind of like the Myers-Briggs with numbers, for you personality test junkies out there. I started The Wisdom of the Enneagram, to gain insight into both the Enneagram and myself, and it's been super fascinating. I've actually taken the Enneagram "test" twice and gotten widely different results, so I'm not entirely sure what number I am. This last time, I scoffed at being a 9, especially when nines are linked to Sloth. Puh-lease, I can't sit still! And then I read the more detailed description--pretty accurate for a serial avoider!
Linking up with A Cup of Tea!
