lately

Hello there! Just wanted to give a life update of sorts and share some random thoughts. Right now I basically feel like Megan in Bridesmaids when she takes like 9 puppies from the bridal shower and then realizes she over-committed. I definitely don't want it to come across as a complaint, because I love everything I've put on my plate, but it's just a tad full at the moment.

Right now, I am doing choreography for two high school show choirs and I am also in a community theater production of Mary Poppins. So I'm balancing three rehearsal schedules in addition to my full time job. Once again, I want to emphasize that this is not a complaint. I already know that in the future I'm going to look back and be jealous of my former self who had the time and ability to do all this fun stuff! And if you know me even a little bit, you probably already know that I am someone who cannot sit still. Ever. There have been a couple of times, however, that I've been so exhausted that I feel like I want to crawl into bed and watch Netflix for like 3 days straight.

Anyways...moving on from my crazy schedule. I am SO ready for fall. The weather has finally cooled down a little bit and I could not be more thrilled to start pulling out my fall wardrobe, sipping hot drinks, and taking walks to see all the pretty, changing leaves. This summer was a good one. Like a really good one. But I always get excited for a change of season and change of clothes, activities, etc. 

I've also been getting more into podcasts lately. Prior to the past couple of weeks, I was really only listening to one podcast and I'd often go months at a time without listening to it. I think I had the same mindset about podcasts as I sometimes do with walks- it's difficult to get started, but once I do it, I always enjoy it. It always seems a lot easier to just listen to music (maybe because it doesn't necessarily require active listening). Lately, I've been listening to podcasts on pretty much every commute and every walk I take and I've been loving it. Also, well aware that I'm like way late to party on this one, but that's just how I roll. 

I know I’ve mentioned this before, but I have been so frustrated lately with myself and my snooze habit. I’ve tried so many different methods to break it, and my sneaky self has always found a way around them. Like putting your alarm on the other side of the room- what do I do? I get up, grab my phone, hit snooze and go back to bed with my phone by me. Anybody out there who used to have a snooze problem and broke the habit? Help a girl out!!

Okay I think that’s all of my random thoughts. If you are still reading, wow thank you. I feel like I actually have a backlog of good post ideas right now, so I just need to make time to actually do them. Maybe if I didn’t hit snooze so much I’d have more time for it…
