    Catching My Eye 10.11.19

    And just like that, another week has come and gone! Except this week was super special for me because it marked my last week at my job. I’d been at my job for just over a year, and it was a truly wonderful experience that taught me so much. I’m leaving to be an account executive at a start-up public relations firm in Nashville, and nothing could make me happier. When I looked into moving to Nashville about three years ago, it was because I wanted to work at a PR firm in the city. And to finally be able to tell people that I am doing that, well, it’s…

    Does anyone else feel like this week lasted for forever? I had a lot of ups and downs, so I feel like by the end of every day I was so emotionally drained that I needed to sleep for 10 hours (and I was lucky if I got six). With everything going on this week, it got me thinking about happiness. Happiness is such a weird thing to describe to someone, but to me, happiness is freedom – freedom to enjoy a moment, freedom to think about something other than your most pressing problem, freedom to make your own choices. I think by now, we all know that happiness is…

    What a week! These last few days have been a whirlwind of emotion, but for very good reasons! I can’t share the good news quite yet, but big things are going on! Something I’ve touched on a few times on here but never really delved into is the importance of friendships. This past week has proven to me more than ever how important it is to surround yourself with people that lift you up and support you no matter what. They may ask some tough questions, but they are going to be by your side no matter what. Good friends are also just as thrilled for your success as you…

    What a fun week! My best friend from college got into town on Saturday, and we had the best time doing all the nerdy things Nashville has to offer — like going to local bookstores, eating at chain restaurants, and watching classic Amanda Bynes movies. On Tuesday, we went and saw the Jonas Brothers, and it was truly the best concert I have been to. They were probably my favorite boy band growing up, and getting to see them live was a dream come true. The rest of the week was pretty normal, and I’m looking forward to a pretty quiet weekend. I’m seeing Dear Evan Hanson on Sunday with my roommate,…

    Boy was this a short week! Typically, short weeks feel longer than normal weeks, but not this one! It felt like Friday before I could even blink. After a relaxing weekend at the beach with friends, I actually took this week pretty easy as well. I had a meeting on Wednesday and a networking event on Thursday, but I’m taking tonight off since I have a friend coming into town tomorrow for the Jonas Brothers concert on Tuesday. I’m excited to get to show her around Nashville after living here for a bit longer. Let’s get into what’s been catching my eye this week… 1. This explainer on the Hong…

    It’s a long weekend! Who has fun plans? I’m heading down to the beach with a group of friends, and I could not be more excited for a chill, fun weekend. Believe it or not, I don’t think I’ve taken a beach weekend since college. Since I’m from Florida and only grew up about 20 minutes from the beach, it’s never something I crave since I can go anytime I’m home (yes, even over Christmas), but I’m still really looking forward to this weekend. I haven’t gotten away from Nashville since February, so it’s a well overdue trip. This week was actually insane. I met with a few people about…

    This week was a looonnng one. You might have noticed since I missed a post on Wednesday (I’m sorry!). I thought it would be more manageable, but I ended up scheduling way too many things — again. Oh well, at least it’s the weekend! Something I wanted to touch on this week is the importance of your network. Your personal and professional networks are so important to your development. This week along I reached out to a professional connection to help me get a leg up in my career, and I reached out to my personal network (friend) to help me better understand a certain situation I’m experiencing. It took…

    Another week in the books! This week was especially fantastic because I got a cat! I’ve been talking about getting a cat for so long that some of my good friends already thought I had a cat. I brought home the precious nugget below on Saturday, and she’s just the cutest little cuddle bug already. I love being a cat mom, and I’m so glad I have her in my life even if she tries to sleep on my face. Her name is Maggie courtesy of my roommate (who I’m slowly turning into a cat person). Other than having a snuggle butt sharing my bed now, I caught up with some friends…

    I don’t know about you, but I’m excited to sleep this weekend! This week ended up being surprising busy, and I didn’t get nearly enough shut-eye — even with skipping a few workouts. The most exciting part of my week was probably mounting my TV. My friend came over to do it for me — my handy skills do not include the use of power tools — and we had all sorts of problems finding the studs and situating the TV at the right height. All in all, it took about four hours with a little dinner break, but now my TV is nice and sturdy (cross my fingers) on…

    Lately, I’ve been feeling like every week is the same. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday drag by with me checking the hour every hour, and then Thursday and Friday are gone in the blink of an eye. I’ve been really busy lately with moving, but things are slowly coming together. I got my bedspread last night, and despite finding two spiders crawling around in it (EW!), I absolutely love it. This weekend, I’m tackling more organization and decoration in my room and throughout the apartment. If you’ve got any tips, please send them my way! But for now, let’s get into what’s been catching my eye… 1. This insight into Alexandria…
