    Happy Friday! I don’t know about you, but short weeks always feel extra long to me. I have a fun weekend planned celebrating a friend’s birthday, seeing a play at a farm, and packing up a storm for my upcoming move. Life has been anything by slow lately. It feels like a complete 180 from last year, and I’d be lying if I said I was handling it well. I’ve had one too many crying sessions lately, but I’m really hoping the fall can be a time of relaxation and joy as the holidays approach and my brother gets married. Anyone else feeling constantly overwhelmed with life going back to…

    Happy Friday! I hope everyone is able to enjoy a long weekend to celebrate America’s birthday whether you have today or Monday off. I’ll be heading up to Kentucky to spend time with my boyfriend’s sister and brother-in-law, and I can’t wait to relax! This week, as most weeks, has been really hectic — I think life is going to be a little bit in disarray until I can get settled in my new place — but its also been a blast to celebrate birthdays and accomplishments and begin the packing process for my new place. this week’s good things: birthday celebrations for three important people in my life, knocked HUGE…

    Happy Friday! This week was an emotional rollercoaster. My boyfriend and I spent quite a bit of time on Tuesday solving a problem that’s been on our plates since December, my health issue from earlier in the year cropped up again, and I got amazing news at work. Some ups, some downs, but mostly I’m just excited for the weekend. I’ve got some quality friend time planned, and I can’t wait to catch up with my gals. this week’s good things: Amazon Prime Day (consumerism at its finest), crossed a big to-do item off the list, got great news at work. Let’s get started! one | making new friends I love…

    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,…

    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…

    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…
