Happy Thursday! I’m checking in today very tired (let’s say it’s a very good thing that caffeine exists…) but holding on to the fact that it’s almost Friday. I hope you’re all having a great week. Have a good day 🙂
So my brain is verging on the tiredness of not being able to function due to some long work hours this week. But life happens and big issues come up so you do what you have to do right?? Instead of dwelling on the bad I figured I’d pep myself up by thinking about some of the things I’m looking forward to.
I know some people aren’t big into Valentine’s Day and I get it. February 14th is slowly becoming a pretty commercialized/Hallmark holiday but I still love it! An excuse to dress up and get a yummy dinner out? Count me in. I’m actually not celebrating on the 14th but I just think celebrating people you love (whether romantically or not!) is a fun thing to do. Who doesn’t want a reminder that they’re loved?
I know it’s just February but it was cold yesterday and I’m ready for some sun. Plus my favorite holiday is in the summer so why wouldn’t I want to celebrate that? It also seems like people are just happier in the summer since we’re all getting enough vitamin D and what not from the sun. The summer brings some of my favorite past times: reading outside, a glass of wine on the porch before dinner, running with the sun up, and farmers markets with delicious fresh produce. Not having to layer to stay warm will be nice too 😉
The Super Bowl
Disclaimer – I’m not a huge football fan. I’ll watch the game but I don’t get really invested in it. Super Bowl Sunday is all about the commercials, half time show and Puppy Bowl for me. Alex and I have a little tradition where we make some appetizers than hang out and watch the game together. Does it count as a tradition if we’ve only done it once but plan on doing it again this year? No clue but I think it does.
Getting My Car
My parents are generous enough to let me keep driving a car that my dad owns. It is so helpful since I don’t need to worry about car payments and insurance while fresh out of college. I work for a car company so I can get a pretty good deal on a car. It’s still a few months away but I’ve been looking at the options I want and will be test driving them soon. Does it count as the first big adult purchase I’ll make if I’m leasing through my job? Either way doesn’t matter to me since it’ll be in my name. It might sound dumb to say I’m looking forward to it but I honestly can’t wait.
Running A Half Marathon
Waking up at 6:30 on cold winter Saturday mornings is tough. But I know that if I can do that then running a half marathon in April will feel much better. I’ve said this before but I love having something to look forward to while running. I’m excited to tackle a slightly farther distance and try to achieve my time goal as well.
Question of the day: What’s one thing you’re looking forward to?
