WO: Weekly Obsessions

I would love to have a good reason for not writing anything besides WOs lately, but the truth is: I’ve just been a social butterfly! Between crazy work hours and crazy happy hours … I’m just too popular. The struggle is real.

  1. Teacher Appreciation Week: As I mentioned last year, my family is full of educators. I wouldn’t be half of who I am without so many influential teachers, and I appreciate their never-ending reminders that summer is just a few weeks away. Right.
  2. Nurse Appreciation Week: My other female family members are nurses (or teach nursing), so this one goes out to those gals! They’ve got just as many ridiculous work stories to share but manage to save lives every day. Color me impressed.
  3. Margarita Appreciation Week: I may or may not have made this one up. But with Cinco de Drinko (and a rough Seis de Mayo), I think it’s only fair we celebrate the salted siren.
  4. “Mood Booster” on Spotify: My fabulous friend, J. Pep, introduced me to this wonderful playlist that got me through a particularly challenging workday. The mix of oldies and goodies is sure to bring a smile to your lovely face.

Cheers, peeps! And spread the love around 🙂

Monday, Bloody Monday

I totally had a “Romy and Michele” moment on the way home from work tonight.

No, I didn’t claim to invent Post-Its.

Nor did I perform a mesmerizing dance to “Time After Time.”

I did, however, unknowingly cut my foot and then my shoe filled up with blood. No, really.

I realized it as my train approached — where I managed to get a seat, despite my pathetic hobbling. The seat turned out to be a front-row pass for a homeless man’s keyboard playing and “I’m Broke, It Ain’t No Joke” serenade.

Safe to say, this girl needs a drink. And a Band-Aid.

Do you have some sort of business woman special?

A Thousand Words

You know those days when you just need a good pick-me-up and for everyone else to leave their drama at the door? You may know them as Mondays — and today was no exception.

Enter the following picture, which has kept me smiling since first laying eyes upon it:

I kept it up in my browser all day. Every annoying interaction, every clench of my fists, every roll of my eyes … all deftly swept away after clicking back to this.

Pictures are worth a thousand words and all that, but I’ll stop at a hundo. Is your life changed? Boo-yah!
