I found this reflection survey from a coworker, and I thought it was actually pretty cool. Remember facebook notes and how we would do random surveys? This is kinda like that!!! I know it’s kind of corny… but I think it’s pretty important to reflect on moments, time periods, events that happen in your life.
I want to make sure I use lameyland as a writing outlet. I struggle to get pen to paper (figuratively) so to combat that, I want to to start a small series called “Some things I:” where I just get things off my chest, in category form.
I was going to share some posts this past week while I was at home, but I was honestly just having too much fun and being busy seeing my friends and family to post anything. And I’m ok with that.
For now, I want to share my time at home. I was only home for about 9 days, but I got to see just about everyone I love and do a lot of very fun things. My first thought was a longer post, writing more about my feelings and what not – but I’ll save that for later. Here are my photos.
This morning I spent time watching Harry Styles on SNL/reading his Rolling Stones article, which led me to feel nostalgic and watch a bunch of One Direction interviews and funny clips, and then I ended just listening to all their albums all afternoon and night. Basically I spent the day with One Direction. Honestly I wish I could explain the effect they have on my heart… BUT I CAN’T! It’s just too special. It seems trivial and teen-y and juvenile, but the amount I care about that is very much nothing at all.
This is hard to admit but…. I love my friends.
I’m not a sappy, talk-about-how-much-i-love-you, huggy, overly emotional type of lady. Which kinda stinks, because I’m afraid it comes off as me not liking people as much as I do. But I really really really love my friends, specifically (for today) my gal friends. I swear to God, there are some people that I think about and my heart swells. I honestly feel my heart in my chest swelling. Hopefully not a medical issue?
As far as I’m concerned, Washington DC is the best city on the east coast. Please bear in mind: I’ve only been to Boston once, New York City a handful of times, Philadelphia a shit ton but it’s kind of not in this contest because it’s like home. Oh and Baltimore sucks so bad. Continue reading “An Ode to Washington DC”
Seeing as this was my first Thanksgiving away from home (ever!??!?), I thought I would share how we participated in the festivities this year. A trip to Utah was in the plans and was helping me avoid thinking about being sad and missing home and my family. After that was canceled, I started to feel some very real feelings of FOMO. But we decided to make the best of the long weekend, and I think we were successful!!!!
