February Wrap-Up


Now that I sit down and think about, February was a great month. Work wasn't stressful or overwhelming, I stayed on top of my to-do list, and my blog posts were finished in time to be scheduled out a couple of days in advance. It was calm.

February was also the start of two good things. One: I've started a new position at my work. I'll be in training over the next couple of weeks and am really looking forward to the change. Two: My boyfriend and I have officially started looking at apartments.

Things are happening!! And it feels good.

So whether it's something I've learned myself or just a few reminders to pass along, here's my two cents:

On Perspective & Navigating Life


Perspective. It's simple and complicated.

I mentioned in my last post that I've been feeling a little down on myself lately because my friends are doing exciting and unique things and I feel like I'm not really doing much of anything.
