June Forget Me NotsPosted: July 1, 2011
This blog serves multiple purposes in my life and one of them is to record my life, what matters to me and the things that happen to and because of me. Every month has its moments and every month deserves some reflection.
Attending orientation for grad school and feeling the biggest rush of excitement I’ve had for school in, well, ever. Making my first vlog. Taking risks and feeling glad I did. Yankee/Red Sox game in NYC with MC. My graduation party. Being reminded of how vibrantly eclectic the collection of people in my life is and feeling grateful for all of them. Training my replacement at work. Being pee my pants excited over knowing within a few shorts weeks I won’t have to spend 40+ hours a week doing a job I’m not remotely passionate about. Afternoons spent reading outside. A new, leather bound journal. Reconnecting with one of my (two) cousins. Getting back into running and feeling all its benefits. Pushing myself. Setting new fitness goals. Feeling a heavy sad. Focusing on self reflection. Having an old school girl’s sleepover with two of my favorite ladies (complete with pinot grigio and prosecco of course). First wedding of the 2011 season. Drinking and dancing in the same room where four years earlier we celebrated my brother’s wedding. A bold, deep plum lip. Father’s day BBQ. Losing the movie passes. De-cluttering my apartment and getting rid of any item that didn’t make me feel happy and any clothes that didn’t make me feel pretty. FINDING THE MOVIE PASSES. True Blood. A rooftop bar. New mac and cheese recipe*. A week alone. Feeling really fucking sad again. Examining why and focusing on gratitude. Feeling content. And independent. And hopeful. MC coming home from vacation and being reminded exactly why my life is better with him in it.
Currently looking forward to July with all its fireworks, beach days, BBQs, a 5k, Boston visit and Shark Week which starts ON MY BIRTHDAY!
