Alone Time

I’ve spent the last three weeks 80% alone and though it’s been great at work when I’m occupied 9-6, when i get home and finish my chores, I’m BORED. So thus, I’ve been filling my time a little less productively than I thought I’d be. I imagined a world of five-mile runs, buying groceries in a half-empty Whole Foods and sleeping a full 10 hours every night.

Obviously that didn’t happen. I binged on Olympics & am in the home stretch of Grey’s Anatomy, Season 12. I let too many flies and mosquitos come in and I’ve been on a bug-hunting rampage throughout my apartment. I discovered Ample Hills ‘Ooey Gooey Butter Cake’ Custard and it’s been delicious ruining my LIFE/WORK OUTS. On weekends, I ate too much Chinese food and went and visited my furry baby in New Jersey. Angus has been taking a nice long vacation with his grandparents and frolicking on all of the green space. Other random highlights include:

Bought a cute jumpsuit from Topshop that I'm kind of into as much as Instagram Stories

What I realized at the end of my 21-day cycle was that it’s all back to basics. I am a creature of habit. I like to go from work to home to workouts sometimes and then a homemade dinner. Ordering out more than two days in a row makes my stomach ache. Eating too much ice cream and bread makes my face swell up into a huge pimple (Monday pimple was the DEVIL).

On the bright side, I'm loving this Essie color. Wish I remembered the name of this!

Double yes for alfresco dining.

A bright side of this whole month was seeing all my girl friends and having me time BUT most importantly, my boring adult tasks. I budged my life and started bullet journaling, which in a sense, is kind of a mini blog. So though I’m not here that often, as long as I”m documenting something I’m happy. Still trying to get into the habit of taking more photos and making a photo journal but a little effort is more than enough.
