Friday Five– 017

The long-awaited last week of employment– here we are! I am officially (as of Friday) not really employed anywhere– eep!

This week, I’ve taken it easy, got to hang out with my baby niece all day Tuesday (#auntielife), got a massage, and generally freaked out just slightly.

  1. The Parent Trap (circa 1998) was easily in my top five movies as a kid. The fashion holds up today.   (Abbi, what were your top five? Well, if you insist… Probably ANYTHING Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, Milo & Otis, Chicken Run, The Parent Trap, and the Princess Bride)
  2. What do you unnecessarily spend money on? Mine is on food– or, going out for food. I hate cooking at home, or at least tell myself I do, mostly because I wait until I’m “too tired or hungry” to wade through a recipe, so I order out (Grubhub is both my best friend and my arch enemy). Anyways, I’m eyeing unneeded expenses and hoping to cut down. Wish me luck!
  3. By now, everyone knows Humans of New York– I still wanted to share this story. The power of SSRIs, social media, and friendship.
  4. I’ve spoken recently about my anxiety and the habit of rehearsing. This article gives some good tips for “over-thinking” which is kind of the same thing? Anyways, I’ve kept a few pages in my BuJo for gratitude and that has helped a lot (tip 6), but the biggest thing for me is to recognize the pattern and step out of it.
  5. Take small, determined steps to get yourself in a better headspace— start with making the decision, then go from there.

 

Happy Friday! I’m headed north for a long weekend– to spend with friends in celebration of birthdays and my freedom!!
