Friday’s Five

It’s been a slow ass week over here. The days seemed to drag, and nights lingered. But starting this weekend, the next month or so seems to be pretty packed. My cousin is coming to stay with me for a long weekend, and it seems like something is planned for every weekend in March. But before I get ahead of myself, let me show you this weeks’ Friday’s Five.

A single girl’s thoughts about Valentine’s Day…

Happy Valentine’s Day! Whether you celebrating with a loved one, or embracing love for yourself, I hope you have a good day. Even if you’re not one for this certain holiday (myself included), it’s still nice to do a little something. Have/make dinner, get some chocolates, grab some flowers, go for a manicure, buy that thing you’ve been wanting, etc. JUST DO IT.

This year I’m single (yet again), and my day will consist of working and then making myself a nice dinner. Perhaps a glass (or two) of wine as well, followed by ice cream. Because, why the hell not?

Valentine’s Day has this certain stigma whether you’re in a relationship or single. If you’re in a relationship, there’s this pressure of fancy gifts and showing just how much you love that person. But in reality, shouldn’t you be doing that all year? Shouldn’t you have those moments on a random Tuesday in June? Why do we let ourselves slip all year and then try and make up for it on the one day in February?Β Β 

Same goes it for us singles out there. ESPECIALLY ladies. Why is it assumed that all of us girls are haters and bitter on V-Day? Just because we’re “alone” doesn’t mean we don’t appreciate love. Instead of society making it seem like we hate all couples, shouldn’t they applaud of us for taking the time to love ourselves? Or actually, maybe we really should start loving ourselves more. Maybe that’s the problem.Β 

I think there’s a lack of self-love in general. We’re so eager to please everyone else, but when was the last time you did something for you? Because you wanted to? This Valentine’s Day, I think you should take a look at yourself, relationship or not, and see if you like what you see. And I don’t mean appearance, I mean how you’re living your life. Is there something that you’ve been wanting to do but are afraid what people might say? Is there a restaurant you want to go but have nobody to go with? You by yourself! Table for one! How scary can it be? Let’s stop being afraid to take care of ourselves and be a little selfish.

Go buy that sweater. Join that spin class. Go to the movies on Wednesday night. Do things you’ve been wanting to do. Because, why the hell not?Β

Friday’s Five

Happy Friday friends! We made it through another week, and boy was it a long one. My family came to visit last weekend, so after all the hustle and bustle, this week slowed down for sure. As far as this weekend goes, there are no set plans. I do have some errands to run, but nothing too exciting. And sometimes, those are just the best weekends.

Before this weekend officially begins, let me share five favorite things from this past week!

My Favorite Podcasts

It seems no matter where you are, you always see people with headphones on. It could be walking down the street, at the gym, in the store, at the coffee shop. Ever wonder what they are listening to? Well if you’re a weirdo like me, then you do. Aside from Spotify and Amazon music, I’m usually listening to some sort of podcast. And with thousands and thousands of them, you can essentially find a podcast about anything.

Here’s what I’ve been listening to!

Weekend Wrap-Up #1

I hope everyone had a great weekend! Doesn’t it always go by way too fast? Ever since I started working from home, the weekend flies by in an instant. But hey, I don’t have a commute 5 days a week so I suppose I can’t complain too much. Here’s a little weekend wrap-up for ya.

Friday’s Five

Since this blog is pretty new, I figured I’d get a jump ahead and start making a series. Which brings me to Friday’s Five. This is a popular concept in the blog world, so it shouldn’t be much of a surprise. Here I’ll recap five things from the past week that I’ve enjoyed/like. I’m fond of this idea because it’s a quick and smooth transition into the weekend. And frankly, who doesn’t want that?

Journal #1

As January comes to an end pretty soon (jeez, that went fast!), I’ve been thinking a lot lately about my resolutions, goals, aspirations, etc for the new year. I definitely feel like I’ve stay committed to some, but there are a few that have fallen by the waist side. Why does this become such a habit? Do we purposely set ourselves up for failure? Since it’s technically not even a month into the new year, I think I can turn this around. These just popped into my head.

NY to NC

Hey there. The name’s Sara, (which you already know because it clearly says that right on top of this page). I decided to just get this first post out there that way we can all move on and continue with our lives.

I’m not new to blogging at all. I’ve started so many, with so many titles, that I’m just now thinking to myself “this, again?”. But yes, this again. Why now? Well I recently moved to a new state, without knowing anyone except two people; my sis & bro-in-law. Other than them, I riding this adventure solo. I’ve been toying with the idea of moving for months and months and then one day finally deciding to take the plunge. Literally in one day I found and solidified an apartment (before seeing it in person), and started making arrangements to make the big move.

So here I am. 2 weeks in and just trying to get into a groove. Luckily I’m able to stay with the company I was before, and work from home. This is a complete life-saver and huge stress-reliever for sure. Instead on focusing on finding a new job, I can look for a place to have a cold brew. Beer not coffee.

In all seriousness, the goal of mine with this blog is just to document my new life. Even if I’m the only one reading this, I want to be able to look back and see how the hell I managed to find my way in the south, when I’m from New York.

XO,
