It’s finally Friday, and what a week it has been! The majority of my time has been spent either applying for jobs or working, but I’ve also been trying to focus on blogging (can you tell?) and catching up on sleep. Exciting, I know. Still, those everyday tasks have a way of building up until you can’t wait to get a day off.
However, I am thrilled to share that I have been featured in Effervescent Magazine! Take a look if you have the time; the issue’s theme is juvenescence, and all published submissions focus on youth, as well the challenges that come with it. I was so busy this week that I hadn’t even realized this issue had gone live, but can’t wait to see what it has in store.
In other news, here is what I have been in love with this week:
As always, God’s unfailing love and grace. I’m a bit of a perfectionist. And so, when anxiety or the thought of making a mistake leaves me paralyzed, He tells me that He is bigger than my doubts. I’m finally starting to realize that perfection does not leave room for me to experience real love.
Planning a trip to Missouri! In a few weeks, I will be visiting family and attending my cousin Alyssa’s graduation ceremony! I’ll get to see best friends and spend some much-needed time with the fam, and for that, I couldn’t be more grateful.
My awesome boyfriend. For all the times he has shared his pizza or bought me dinner; for impromptu Disney movie nights and reminding me that the future isn’t so scary after all. He is also very good at explaining hockey terminology, making me laugh, and making me feel loved.
Other happy thoughts: laughing with Xan about Jesus’s adolescent years; Constable Chubs following us everywhere; job interviews; chocolate flavored tea, and chocolate in general; amazing articles from The Salt Collective and Relevant; appreciating this season’s queens on RuPaul’s Drag Race (I can’t stop watching it, you guys); sunny Georgia days; season 3 of How I Met Your Mother, because that’s when it starts getting HILARIOUS; kind strangers; book recommendations (always); Virginia mountains; the awesomeness of Burt’s Bees face wash; writing non-stop; days where I can sleep in and wear my pajamas; ordering several bottles of wine from Currahee Vineyards; new music; animal rescue stories; reaching 20 posts on this blog! Crazy, right?!
