End of the work week, it is Friday folks! All week I've been enjoying the weather, and the smell of Summer is slowly creeping in. It will be so refreshing to not wear a jacket (and scarf) to work anymore! And with the tip of Summer on the horizon I can't help but create this seriously lengthy "summer bucket list" in my head. There are just about a million things I want to do this summer, and I really hope I get to them all!
Next week I will start experimenting with working out (at the gym in my office building) during lunch. I know a few people who do this, and I think it's a really great idea. I can always eat my lunch at my desk afterwards AND it might deter me from smoking during the day :) I notice such a big difference in my lung capacity when I walk/run after (or during) smoking. Even this morning-- I chose not to have a cigarette on my walk to the bus stop, and was able to make the quick sprint down the block and across the street so I didn't miss the light. Because of this I caught a bus that I wouldn't have otherwise, and I wasn't late to work! See how that works?!
On Tuesday this week I went to a *free* reading at a bar in my neighborhood. There were 6 or 7 people who read stories about their lives. Some of them were funny, some were a bit more serious, but they were all so interesting. A lot of the stories were about weird or crummy jobs, which I can relate to, haha. Not this one necessarily, but some of my past jobs have been interesting for sure. Anyway, I went to this reading by myself because nobody was available so last minute. It turned out to be really fun to take myself on this little date :) I met a friend, drank a beer, listened to some stories, and had a lovely walk home on a warm night. Apparently this story thing happens on the 2nd Tuesday of every month, so I'd like to check it out again in June!
I'm about to head off to a meeting, but before I do I want to share some of my summer bucket list items with you!
- Go kayaking
- Take a road trip
- Go to the beach (a lot)
- Ride my back around Andersonville (and possibly beyond, if I get brave)
- Baseball games!
- 6 flags
- Have some poker nights at our apartment
- Take a class (this one might be a fall thing, we'll see)
- Run a 5K
- Go to free/cheap concerts as much as possible
- Go to lots of neighborhood festivals
- Brew my own beer!
Alrighty, my coffee and I are outtie 9000. Cheers!
