    Happy Friday! Boy am I glad it’s the weekend. It was a long week. I worked late almost every night, and I completely messed up my sleep schedule, so I definitely need rest this weekend. After a year of no plans, everything came back in full force, and I am feeling the side effects of that. How are you fairing in this post-pandemic world or is it just Nashville that feels like it’s completely back to normal? this week’s good things: I bought a couch for my new apartment, and it should only take a couple weeks once I’m moved in to arrive (if you don’t know, couches are delayed for MONTHS right now), I…

    Happy Friday! I had a good week. Anyone else? It’s been awhile since I’ve felt this good, and I’m terrified it’s going to go away (that’s anxiety for you), but I’m soaking it up while I can. This week was jam-packed with meetings, networking events, and late nights of work, but it’s all worth it. this week’s good things: I joined a Nashville bookstagram book club, I’m not as tired this week, I worked our four times this week. one | the power of thought I loved this article about how some people are scared to be happy because the world is such a dark place. But actually, acting happy and working to…

    Happy Friday! It was my first week back in the office since last March, and boy did it exhaust me! I went to a networking event last night, I got home, and I just cried from how bone-tired I was. It’s okay. All of this is going to be an adjustment, but we are in it together right? I shared some behind the scenes on my Instagram about how I’ve been feeling the last few weeks, but I’m trying to focus on the good things. this week’s good things: We’re back in the office for work and it’s nice to collaborate in person, I got back in the gym twice this week,…

    Catching My Eye | 05.21.21

    Happy Friday! This week feels like it flew by. I was sick at the beginning of the week — we can thank everyone leaving their houses for the first time in over a year for that — so, I was really just focused on getting better the first three days of the week. I’m really looking forward to this weekend — it’s going to be a busy one, but I think it will be really rewarding. this week’s good things: I don’t have COVID, I get to talk to kids today about taking their future in their hands, I attended an author event last night that was amazing. Let’s get started!…

    I have six — count them: SIX — library books due before the end of the month, and I am determined to read them ALL before they are due. Can I do it? Who knows? Am I going to try my darndest? Oh yes! If anyone has any tips for powering through reading (and enjoying it), my DMs on Instagram are open! This week was insane, just as last week was, but I think I’m getting the hang of this new client and new role I’m taking on it. It’s a challenge, but who doesn’t love a challenge? this week’s good things: I’m still dog-sitting so cuddles have been in abundance, I was…

    Happy Friday! I don’t know about you, but this week felt like it both took forever and went by way too fast. I’m getting my second dose of the vaccine this afternoon, and then, I’m ready to be cuddled on the couch all Saturday with side effects. I know I definitely need the break, so while I’m not looking forward to being “sick,” I am looking forward to some down time. this week’s good things: I’m celebrating the marriage of some great friends tonight, I got puppy snuggles all week, and I am working really hard to achieve my dreams. Let’s get started! one | book list It’s Asian American and…

    Catching My Eye | 04.30.21

    Happy Friday! We made it through the week! This was actually a surprisingly good week? It was insanely busy, but I feel like that’s when I do my best work. I don’t do well with down time. Anyone else? Last week I went on a road trip with my boyfriend through Atlanta to a small town in Georgia for a friend’s wedding. The wedding was absolutely beautiful, but I’d be lying if I didn’t say my favorite part of the trip was watching Whale Sharks at the Georgia Aquarium. While I actually loved pressing “pause” on life (for the most part) during the pandemic, I’m relieved things are returning to…

    TGIF. After two weeks of working three-day weeks, a full week of work almost did me in. While I’m excited to see life picking back up as flowers blossom, I’m also a little sad to see the quiet days of winter slip away (Only me?). This week was packed with meetings and just a little bit of stress related to some upcoming projects, but I’m excited for it all! this week’s good things: I finished two amazing books, I got a new awesome black, studded cup to drink water from, and I got to spend time with friends one-on-one. Let’s get into what’s been catching my eye this week! one |…

    Happy Friday! This week was a weird one. I was totally thrown off because of the time change, and it was really hard to get into the groove of things. Aside from the time change, I am also heartbroken over the horrible hate crime that occurred in Atlanta this week. My heart goes out to my Asian friends who are feeling more unsafe than ever as well as the families that were impacted by this atrocity. I can’t fix this situation, but what I can do, is provide you guys with some amazing books to read by Asian authors to support the community. Look out for this list next week.…

    TGIF. This week feels like it’s lasted eons, and I am so ready for the weekend. Truthfully, I don’t know why this week has felt so long, but I’m excited to get some good reading time in on the couch this weekend. this week’s good things: some delicious Hello Fresh meals, lots of quality reading time with my page flags, knocking all the items on my to-do list out before the weekend. one | daily habits to improve your mental health Routines are my saving grace. I get up ridiculously early for someone that doesn’t need to clock-in until 9 a.m., but I want that time in the morning to journal,…
