What a sped up month. I have no complaints. Took small steps and general headway on personal goals; work is trying to be more interesting while I’m simultaneously more diligent about my outside-of-the-office pursuits. In and out of town friends came and went; lunches, dinners, cocktails and conversations; long walks afterwards. I let myself really rest some too. And crazy enough, I went on a legit blind date. As in, I didn’t even google the guy, had no idea what he looked like other than the explanation from a broker at the office. This alone feels exceptional since it’s certainly not the swipe this way or that and internet stalking that pervades us. For the record, I’m on no dating … Read More

Bookending Days

I bookend my days with reading; in the quiet morning and in the closing down of the night. Yesterday was rather curious as it had bookends within itself. I went on a 4 mile walk in the late morning. It was a bit overcast, cool, breezy. I 100% knew rain was coming but wasn’t sure when, so I didn’t let this deter me. About halfway to my turning around point, it started to drizzle a soft mist.

I was in my first apartment and this was a lifestyle I thought I knew about myself. A funny thought just struck me. I’m sitting on a stool, typing on a low table. This was exactly how I was set up in my first apartment. I think I actually had my laptop on a wooden bench. I sold my desk when I moved most recently and don’t miss it. I also gave away … Read More

In the Zone

Long walks and long noodles. Long walks are good for the soul. 75% of noodle dishes are comfort food, so they are good for the soul too. Both were a part of my weekend. The walks have been an every Sunday thing. And they never involve a cell phone. I really love my cozy quaint neighborhood smack center in the high rise metropolis and cultural abundance of Dallas. If I spit out of my front door it’d hit a museum, bistro, tapas bar, or The Ritz. But I love my job more and will move again as soon as I can. I hate putting the miles on my car. And truthfully I don’t frequent any of the places in my neighborhood. … Read More
