I love traveling. I always have. I'll go anywhere, really. I enjoy traveling for both work and just for fun. But one thing is always the same—it takes a long time to get back in the groove after traveling. Especially so when the return back doesn't quite go as planned. It gets even worse when … Continue reading On Travel.
I have found, while trying to manage, that it does not take much to completely derail my day. And my plan. Take for example, this morning. It was 2 a.m., to be exact. The loudest crash of thunder I've ever heard rocked my city (quite literally) and seemingly woke everyone up, myself included. It was … Continue reading Disruptions.
I feel like 'managing' is a bit of a catch-all term. A variety of things need to be managed. Time, responsibility, expectations. This is something I've been trying to focus on myself lately. Mainly the time aspect of it. Time management has always been an issue of mine. Growing up, my teachers would always write … Continue reading Managing.
So We’re Building A House.
Last fall, my SO and I decided to build a townhouse. All of that is fantastic. We just had our pre-drywall meeting and walkthrough last week. Today for funsies we decided to go into a nearby lighting store just to see what our options were for something over the dining room table. And did we … Continue reading So We’re Building A House.
Work Work Work Work Work Work Work.
Do you ever get the feeling like all the work happens at the same time? That happened to me today. It's like all the things are due, on two very short weeks. I'm mildly terrified about getting it all done, but I'm always very well aware that sometimes you need some free time to decompress … Continue reading Work Work Work Work Work Work Work.
I had to get some tests run today, so ultimately that meant I had to fast, a not uncommon situation. Initially I was terrified at the thought of going 36 hours without food and I thought I'd be totally miserable. As it turns out, it wasn't as bad as I anticipated. This lead me to … Continue reading Eating Habits.
I've decided that it's a good thing for my brand and my wallet if I freelance. I had a few opportunities come up before I was even looking and I decided to take them on. And while getting to work with these clients makes me happy creatively, I'm mortified that I'm going to commit to … Continue reading Side Hustles.
New Year (ish), New Site (ish).
I realized how completely out of date my site (and LinkedIn) was yesterday. So I did a little revamp. I'm pivoting a bit to make this less of just a blog, and more of a site where people can find out about me and work with me. I will continue to be imperfect in holding … Continue reading New Year (ish), New Site (ish).
On Exercise and Mental Health
https://www.instagram.com/p/BUP8Ad_DVm5/?taken-by=cltfive I have never been a huge fan of exercising. I danced for 18 years, and while it is exercise, it didn't seem like it to me. I didn't go to a gym for it, I wasn't running laps, and it was fun. It was my extra-curricular. Over the past year, I've finally gotten to … Continue reading On Exercise and Mental Health
A Serendipitous Morning
As a creative, I love events that engage me in a creative way. Ones that speak to my career, but in the boring, corporate sense. This is why I relish my time at CreativeMornings. I've been to every installment since the first time I attended. It always surprises me how something as simple as a … Continue reading A Serendipitous Morning
