I am …
… in a little bit of a shock that May is almost over. I mean, seriously, where did this
month first half of the year go?
… totally in love with my new sandals (and they’re comfortable, too. Double-win!)
… thankful for some new connections that have slowly but surely grown into friendships over the last couple of months.
… always super-happy when I find a letter or card from someone in my mailbox. If you want to know the way to my heart, send me snail mail and you’ll be my bff for life!
… looking forward to spending the weekend in Southern California. I’ll (hopefully) go thrift-shopping with my MIL, meet with a new friend, go to the beach and just have a good time. Sometimes I really miss living in West LA. J and I had a good time there and I loved being so close to Santa Monica and the beach.
… curious what everyone else thinks about the book “MWF seeks BFF” by Rachel Bertsche, which we will be discussing at the Stratejob Bookclub meeting on Monday. I can say as much as that I could very much relate to Rachel’s endeavor to find new friends in a new city. It’s not the easiest thing to do once we’re out of school/college. In fact, it turns out to be quite hard.
… missing my niece and nephew a lot. My sister keeps sending me these adorable pictures and videos and I just realize every single time how much I am missing out on. Sigh. Can’t wait for our next skype session (hopefully) next week!
… stoked about Baseball season. (Go, Red Sox!)
… getting into the new HBO series “Veep”. First we thought it to be a bit silly, but now it’s been kind of growing on J and I. We’ll keep watching for now.
… hating a little bit of miscommunication that I had with a friend due to ‘cut-off’ text messages, missed phone calls and stupid assumptions. Always talk it out, peeps. It’s much better than letting bad feelings fester.
… happy to see my little potted vegetable garden grow. I am a total newbie to gardening and I really hope that something will come off it. I’ve been taking pictures of the progress (I am only in week 3 so far, so there is not much to see yet), which I will share at a later point.
… ridiculously excited about a trip to New England that is in the works for this summer. It’s been long overdue! We’re going to see some friends that we haven’t seen in a couple of years and then we’re also going to go up to Boston (my favorite city in the whole wide world!).
