Witty Rewind: March 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.

I told myself I’d try a “clean eating on weekdays” approach in March but I most certainly did not. Instead, I started on the 1st with a Mexican fiesta lunch, spent mid-March in San Diego (Mexican food capital of California) and ended the 31st with a wine-and-tacos apartment purge party. Noticing a theme? Ay dios mio. [🌮 eaten: ~20]

Despite having plenty of time to devote to reading on the shuttle and quick flights, I found myself not able to power through any reads the way I normally would. (For context, I can usually get through a book in 2-4 sittings, and a few days’ time.) That’s not to say I didn’t enjoy my March picks, but I do think I was considerably less motivated with my brain on overdrive in work summits and commitments. [📚 read: 3.5]

Some highlights from the madness that was this past month:

    1. Bowling with dear friends who moved to New York last year
    2. Celebrating a housemate’s birthday with incredible Cajun cuisine
    3. Meeting lots of inspiring and empowering women through Junior League of SF
    4. Attending a newcomer summit for work + getting uplifting insight
    5. Looking for a new apartment with a current housemate
    6. Catching up with a longtime friend during her stay in SF before she moves back to NYC
    7. Checking out a crystal fair (really!) and somehow buying only jewelry
    8. Hosting my fave former writer for lunch at my new(ish) job
    9. Happy hour-ing with other former writers and getting the tea
    10. Helping another former writer with her portfolio
    11. Spending a week in San Diego with my family
    12. Experiencing DisneyLand for the first time and seeing my nieces go wild
    13. Attending a global summit for work + meeting tons of colleagues face-to-face
    14. Exploring the Exploratorium 😉 and its After Dark series for the first time
    15. Celebrating a handful of close friends’ birthdays with drinks, dinners, brunches galore

WO: Weekly Obsessions

This week’s post is a light one, because I wasn’t entirely sure how great Internet access would be while cruising the Pacific. #firstworldproblems, much?

I’ll have plenty more to say next week when all my photos are uploaded (spoiler alert: I never upload photos), so in the meantime, enjoy this quintessential island song. Mahalo 😉

WO: Weekly Obsessions

I write today still recovering from the past weekend’s shenanigans and prepping for what’s coming in the days ahead. So just bear with me:

  1. Tinder: Well, duh. Even though I’ve already mastered it — and the game aspect isn’t all that exciting anymore — I still have to applaud its creators for appealing to millions of ADD millenials.
  2. “Chrisley Knows Best”: I was intrigued by the previews for this new show with its patriarch retorting to one child that he’s “been there, done that and got the T-shirt, son, and you’re just doing reruns.” Trust me, it doesn’t disappoint. Catch new episodes Tuesdays at 10 EST on USA.
  3. Magz Coming to Visit: My one and only, favorite momma is spending a week with me starting tomorrow! I can hardly contain my excitement to show her how grown up I am.
  4. Christopher Walken Dance Now: I’m told this video went viral yesterday (a year in Internet land), but I discovered it today so LISTEN UP. Umm, it’s a mash-up of Christopher Walken dancing. Not much else to say.
