3 Or Less: January 25, 2016

I had my first test of the new semester this morning, so naturally, instead of waking up early to study some more or to exercise & get the blood flowing to my brain (#science), I woke up early to drink coffee and to listen to my favorite podcast. The She Didn’t Text Back Podcast is crass and rude and hysterical and the perfect thing to listen to at 7:54 a.m. (That statement is also #science).

And it’s an added bonus when your mug is stinkin’ adorable.  Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

In keeping with the lazy Monday theme, today’s OOTD featured a tee shirt proclaiming my general feelings (Ok, but first coffee) and yoga pants for the ultimate test-taking comfort.

I’ve been trying for literally years to practice yoga Processed with VSCOcam with f2 presetconsistently. As much as I love it and can recognize the positive impact it has on my health and happiness, I just can never seem to make it a part of my daily routine. And then I feel all negative about that and so very un-yogi like, perpetuating my distance from my practice. But today’s a new day and I’m celebrating making it to the mat! A nice stretch to start the week off right. Now to tackle that paper I’ve been putting off…

3 or Less: January 22, 2016

It’s been a rainy, dreary day here in Tennessee, the kind that makes you want to skip your  classes and just stay tucked up in bed. Thank goodness for coffee and rain boots.

The only logical thing to do after class on a gross Friday morning is to reflect and reminisce. For Christmas, I received the most lovely set of paperback journals. Each has a theme and simple little prompts to get the words flowing. A Dr. Pepper in my sparkly cup, some Beatles music, and making a list of tiny pleasures I want to enjoy more; what could be better?

Processed with VSCOcam with acg presetI’m generally a pretty introspective, nostalgic person, but this week I’ve been feeling particularly reflective. Two years ago, I left school to work at Walt Disney World for a semester. This week has been a mess of emotions remembering that time and it seemed fitting to take a look through my scrapbook this morning. So many sweet memories.

Processed with VSCOcam with acg presetSleepy, simple Friday mornings are easily one of my favorite things. No rushing, no stress. Even the nasty weather can’t spoil this glorious morning.
