Since I haven’t posted since the second, I thought I’d drop in to say hi. I’ve been busy as summer is winding down, and I haven’t really had much to write about. I went to a Hartford Yard Goats game on Friday, but it’s not enough to warrant its own post, so I’ll cover that in my monthly tea chat. I’ve been running two to three times a week, and I’m spending my entire weekends at the ice cream shop. Plus a bunch of doctors’ appointments at once and spending a lot of time reading means I’m in bed before 10:00 p.m.
I did decorate more of my office. There was a little bookcase in the main office area, which no one was using, so I moved it into my office. It faces the hallway—which my office is at the end of—and on the right you can see part of my desk.
I took last Thursday and Friday off—I’m so bad at using my vacation days—and on Friday, my mom and I went to Marshalls and Michaels. I got the sign and the three fake plants at Marshall’s. The sign says “Don’t forget where you came from but never lose sight of where you are going.” The plant on the far right came with three ropes that would allow me to hang it if I chose, but instead, I took the ropes out of the holes and hot glued one on each of the pots. There’s no way I could keep real plants alive—even with a window—so the fake plants are the best option for me. The blue mason jar is from Michaels and came with little fairy lights inside.
The “B” on the middle shelf was a gift from a friend three years ago, and the book and magazine are University-related. The lights came from my stash of Christmas lights that I bought at Walmart last winter to put up in my office. Luckily I had bought an extra box at the time.
So I guess here are just some of the things I’m into lately:
Currently reading: City of Girls by Elizabeth Gilbert
Currently watching on Netflix: How to Get Away with Murder
Favorite show: Bar Rescue
Favorite song: “Call You Mine” by The Chainsmokers/Bebe Rexa
Ice cream flavor: Oreo
Drink: Sunny D (because I am a child)
Feel free to answer with your own things you’re into lately!
