Mind Musings

^ John and I went to a fun country concert a couple weeks ago. It was nice getting out and doing something besides being the couch potatoes we usually are ;)

1. Lately, I've been trying to eat much better than I usually do. During the school year, my diet consisted of carbs in the morning (bagels or biscuits or waffles, etc.), carbs for lunch (hello sandwich and chips!), and carbs for dinner. I'm lucky to have a quick metabolism, but I've been noticing all of those carbs catching up to me. So, I've been more conscious lately of what I've been putting into my body. Let me tell you - it's a struggle. Scrambled egg whites just don't have the same effect of pancakes. And syrup. And bacon.

2. Last week, I ran over a squirrel. It was one of the worst moments of my life (I'm so dramatic, I know). It happened literally 2 minutes into my drive to Dallas for work and I bawled basically the entire car ride. So now, I don't drive without looking for squirrels at all times. I know it was just a squirrel, but still. It was traumatizing. I will never understand people who purposely swerve to run over squirrels like it's game or something... high school boys, I'm looking at you.

3. I want to travel so badly!!! I have the travel bug again. Next summer, I want to go to NYC to intern. Fingers crossed that happens. It sounds incredible to be a New Yorker for a summer. I'm also dying to go to Europe again! On my list? Amsterdam, Barcelona and anywhere in Italy.

4. My summer is halfway over. What?! How did that happen? I just got back home! But, part of me is ready to go back to school. I thrive on being busy and having a routine. But, I know as soon as I get there I'll wish it was summer all over again. Cue my indecisiveness.

Sweet Summer

^ I've been getting to explore Dallas this summer and it's been so great! Makes me want to get out of my little suburban bubble more often! 

Summer is in full swing here, but summer is looking a tad different as I'm getting older. With an internship this summer, summer doesn't mean laying around around on the couch, with a day full of netflix watching anymore. Summer means getting in my car and driving to work! But I'm not complaining - I'm loving my internship! I'm learning and seeing a lot and it couldn't be better. 

Lately, I've been hanging with John and my family. What's new? It was storming for like, a straight week here in Dallas so I'm enjoying the sunny weather with lots of dog walks. 

^ So my flower obsession has hit a whole new level thanks to my internship... I'm ready to grow my own garden so I have flowers all of the time!!! Peonies, hydrangeas... all of the above!

^ I'm loving being home with my guy. Two more years of college and we'll be home together for good!
