Last week I started my new job (!). As we went around the room introducing ourselves, we also had to state something we’re thankful for. Most people’s answers revolved around traveling, “the opportunity,” etc…I said Drake.
Which reminded me, as Drake often does, that I haven’t spun up a thankful list in awhile. These past two months have been some of the most volatile and influential yet. I was unemployed, in Paris for pastry school, driving around Marseille with my best friend in Munich, finding a new job, figuring out dating (I think), getting back into race training, traveling solo, and setting boundaries. Phew.
I’m excited for the next few months to be back in my groove and excited to share some things I’ve felt gratitude for in these crazy weeks, like:
My new job!
Spontaneous trips to Carmel
Friends who text as frivolously as I do
Getting back into running
My much-needed RRR trip to Nica
Creating a weekly budget and sticking to it
My upcoming girls trip to LA for LDW
Cooking dinner (so far we’ve made chicken tacos, Indian lamb curry, and beef stew)
New Yorker articles
