Witty Rewind: May 2019

I thought it’d be fun to capture each month’s activities and milestones in a series called Witty Rewind. It may not be for posterity’s sake, but I hope you’ll enjoy looking back at the previous month with me.

It should come as no surprise that my health and wellness focus has fallen quite off the rails. I battled a couple of allergy attacks, and my motivation has run away further than any ol’ 5K would get me. I did focus more on meditation and mindfulness, so I’m trying to not beat myself up about it. But when you’re an all-or-nothing kinda person, it def feels futile. [Minutes meditated: ~200]

What I always come back to for relaxation and rejuvenation is READING. I’ve been “competing” in a one-book-a-week challenge at work and smashed my goal of 13 books in 10 weeks, with a week still to go. From awful self-help advice to the horrors of Nazi Germany, it’s been quite a journey. [Books read: 7]

Here’s how else I spent the month of May:

  1. Celebrated Cinco with margaritas and Book Club
  2. Had a roomie reunion dinner at a new Mediterranean spot
  3. Happy-houred with former colleagues and enjoyed comped treats from the chef
  4. Dinner and a pop-up show in Oakland — truly remarkable!
  5. Canceled plans on canceled plans on canceled plans (I blame mystery illness)
  6. My oldest niece graduated from VPK! The pics are everything
  7. Volunteered with the Junior League of SF and prepped incoming leadership
  8. Sat out the annual Bay to Breakers mayhem (let’s say because of rainy forecasts)
  9. Ventured to OLIVE GARDEN with my girlfriends who truly are family
  10. Continued furnishing the new apartment, despite incomplete deliveries and delays
  11. Celebrated the end of the League year with dinners, drinks, wine country… you name it
  12. Saw the Monet exhibit before it left SF…
  13. …and ended the evening with a scary (though relatively minor) car crash
  14. Remembered how atrocious the insurance and healthcare industries are in the US
  15. Traveled to Vegas with a lot of aspirin and saw CELINE DION in one of her final shows
