Lessons :: Friday Feelings / 4
This week, I felt ________ because...
HAPPY: I had the most lovely, relaxing 27th birthday. I spent it mostly reading, writing and shopping; all my favorite things! I bought myself a gorgeous new purse and wallet from Target, along with three books from Amazon (Bread & Wine, Rant, and The Gifts of Imperfection) and some new Project Life materials too. (If you're wondering how I can afford these items, I'll let you in on a little secret: abstaining from alcohol does WONDERS for my bank account!) I decided not to plan anything big this year; what with Baby Loudmouth on the way and lots of creative projects in the works, I already had enough on my plate.
THANKFUL: Texts from Malorie and Kelly and Vahan and Zhana and Megan. Calls from Chris and my parents. The strangest e-card from my sister. An IG collage from Melissa. A package from Charisma. Tweets from Alysia, Jessica, Jenmarie, Chelsea. I'm probably forgetting someone, but I'm grateful for all the birthday love! (Oh, and thank you to everyone who read my long-ass post from that day. You rule.)
EXCITED: I'm actually typing this on Wednesday because I have so much going on the rest of the week! Kelly will be in town with her boyfriend on Thursday, on their way to San Diego. I haven't seen her in over a year! On Friday, Brandon is taking me on an all-day adventure as a belated birthday celebration, since he has the day off; I wonder where we're going! I'm also supposed to receive a parcel from my mother at some point. She says it's filled with old keepsakes from my childhood -- can't wait to see! Then this weekend, I'll be in San Diego myself to hang with Jess. I'm looking forward to a quick getaway.
DISAPPOINTED: I kinda wish I had gotten more work done this week. I know, but what can I say? I'm a workaholic! I need to learn to cut myself some slack, especially since I'm my own boss now. After all, if I didn't want to have days off, I could've just stayed in the corporate world. Teehee...
Hope you guys had a great week!
