Walking, Cooking, Couch-Ing

My weekend consisted of primarily three things: walking, cooking, and couch-ing.


Again, I will openly admit that these fake trophies on the Fitbit app are enough motivation to get me moving all weekend long.

Yesterday, Mana-Manaf (who now lives in Mountain View!) and I walked the LG Trail, my favorite weekend activity.


After hiking and brunch with Manaf, I spent the rest of the day prepping for the week.





I am FINALLY done with The Voice and all caught up on Parenthood. Tissues were required for both.


For about 1.5 seconds, in the midst of all my binge TV-watching, I wondered whether I should be doing something more “fun,” like champagne brunch or going out with friends on Saturday night. After all, I did make ONE resolution to do more things that make me happy.

And then I quickly realized that I didn’t WANT to be anywhere but my couch this weekend. That the idea of champagne brunch did not make me giddy and excited. And that I was pretty content (dare I say giddy…) doing nothing but these three activities this weekend.

Welcome to your late 20s, I guess?

Loving every second of it.

But then, I started working at Rocketship. Rocketship is all about the data. In fact, we have DATA DAYS to collect the data, analyze … Read more»

Shattered Phone. Happy Heart.

4-day work weeks are both challenging and wonderful. All at the same time. Pros: You only have to work 4 days. Duh. Cons: You have to fit everything in to four days. And then you're constantly GO-GO-GO. And then you accidentally drop your [already broken] phone, kick it off the side of the 2-story building, and watch as it faceplants into the parking lot. Ouch. I really, really don't deserve nice things. I wish "I work at a SCHOOL" would be a valid excuse that would work in my … Read more»
