This is a regular feature post on my blog. See the archives here.
+ It’s awkward when perfectly fine and functional apps + websites make design changes just because (I’m talking about you, Google). The latest offender: Instagram. Why oh why did you have to put the “like” and “comment” button up at the top (right under the image) and change them to “icons” instead of “words”? Do. not. like. It leads to unnecessarily having to scroll up and down. I feel it was easier to reach to the “like” and “comment” button right underneath the capture (especially when it is a long one). Just me?
+ I know it’s supposed to be nice/friendly when the clerk at the supermarket checkout asks you casual questions about how your day is going or what your plans for the weekend are, but sometimes I just don’t want to answer those questions! Leave me alone!
+ Mason jar salads for lunch. I am so glad that now that the warmer season is around the corner, I can take advantage and prepare some easy lunch options in advance. I tend to forgo salads in the winter for something warmer and more soothing (soup), but I am excited to go back to salad lunches this summer. (It’s ironic that on the day I post this, it’s cold and rainy here in California.)
+ May is our anniversary month. We’ll be married for 9 years in a couple weeks. Crazy how time flies. I don’t think we’ll go on a trip (like we did last year), since my family is coming to visit so soon, but I am sure we’ll do something to celebrate the occasion!
+ I started a new Runtastic training plan and my next goal is to run a 10k. (Just for me, right now. I haven’t signed up for a race officially, or anything, but we’ll see how that goes).
+ Early bedtime. I’ve been trying to go to bed earlier for about a week now and get at least 30 minutes more shut-eye and it seems to be working quite well. I wouldn’t say that I jump out of bed at 5:45 a.m. with excitement, but I don’t feel so groggy in the morning as I did a couple of weeks ago.
