    Catching My Eye | 03.05.21

    This week was a doozy my friends. On Monday, I got some scary news that I might have to get some minor surgery done soon (only scary because I’ve never had surgery before), and it feels like it’s been years since I got that news. For the first time in year, I was truly scared, and my team showed up. My boyfriend’s giving love language can sometimes be acts of service, and he was so excited to step up in this way in the last week. My mom’s best friend offered up an amazing connection that eased a lot of our fears. My friends have checked in on me continuously.…

    Happy Friday! I can’t believe it, but this week felt like a taste of life pre-pandemic with all the virtual meetings and work I had to get done. It really made me feel like I could see the light at the end of the tunnel. With people getting vaccinated and the weather getting warmer, I’m definitely getting excited about potential summer plans. I’m trying not to get ahead of myself, but I’m also trying to be optimistic. this week’s good things: coffee, my roommate got a new job, professional connections Let’s get started! one | cold-call your friends, or don’t Fun fact: I actually hate when my friends call me out of…

    Catching My Eye | 02.19.21

    This was truly a week for the books. A massive snow storm (sleet storm?) hit Nashville, and I self-selected to stay at home and remain off the roads for my safety and the safety of others. Not only does Nashville not really have the infrastructure for snow, but I am from Florida, and while I can handle any hurricane that comes my way, snow is a whole different thing for me. On Wednesday, I was searching for places that were delivering because I was embarrassingly low on food, and a true hero was delivering from Walgreen’s so I snagged from emergency mini-pizzas to tide me over until the weekend. Fingers…

    It’s been an interesting week. From freezing rain to snuggles with Maggie, I am definitely ready for the weekend. I don’t have a lot to add here other than I hope everyone has a lovely Valentine’s Day no matter what you do with the day, so let’s get started! one | lana condor says goodbye to lara jean It’s the end of an era! The final installment of the To All the Boys I Loved Before came out today, and I can’t wait to watch it.

    Happy Friday, friends! This week has been a tough one for sure. For reasons I don’t want or need to get into, I’ve been under a lot of stress, and I would not be exaggerating if I said I haven’t truly stopped crying since Wednesday. I’m excited to get into this weekend and, hopefully, take a little break from my emotions. Maybe dive into a good book? Let’s get started with what’s been catching my eye this week! one | storygraph I finally started a Storygraph account! Storygraph is an alternative reading platform to Goodreads. The review process is more than just writing a paragraph, it recommends books based on…

    And with that, January is basically done! We survived the first month of 2021, and maybe I’m just being obnoxiously positive, but I didn’t think it was all that bad. Right guys? The first ten days were a little hit-or-miss, but once we made it over the hump, I think we hit our stride. Here’s hoping the rest of 2021 is just as forgiving. My week, as most, was pretty quiet. I’m just keeping my nose down, getting work done, and reading books.

    We did it! This week was full of happy tears as we inaugurated President Biden and Vice President Harris. We have our first female Vice President. This is truly so amazing. This is especially exciting for me because VP Kamala Harris is half-Jamaican, and my parents are Jamaican. It’s a huge step forward in so many ways, and I am so excited to see what this new legislation brings. In more personal news, my boyfriend and I are celebrating our one-year anniversary this weekend. It’s inspiring to see how much we’ve grown independently and as a couple over this last year. I’m excited to unwind together this weekend, go on…

    TGIF! I don’t know about you, but this week felt like it was a million years long. I had an overwhelmingly productive beginning to my week, and all of a sudden, I crashed yesterday. I couldn’t focus on any of my tasks, and all I wanted to do was take a nap. Believe it or not, I think all the events of the previous week had finally hit me. Sometimes I can take longer to process upsetting incidents (this has happened before with loved ones’ deaths, family drama, and news items). I’ll be completely fine when it’s happening, and then a week, maybe weeks, later, I’m a mess. It’s definitely…

    How’s everyone doing? There’s no denying that this was a tough week. I am once again saddened to my core about the current events in this nation. I can’t put into words what I am feeling, though words should be the one thing I have. I want to give everyone a giant group hug right now. I hope everyone can take a moment this weekend to hug their loved ones a little tighter and decompress from this sad event. Let’s get into what’s been catching my eye this week… one | a breakdown of what happened at the capitol on Wednesday… If you somehow missed the news, here’s what happened…
