Hi friends! It’s been a hot second since we had a virtual coffee date (July 12th to be exact!) Can I get a TGIF? I am so happy that the weekend is finally here! I’m usually exhausted come Wednesday…so Friday is eagerly anticipated! I have a full day ahead today…a meeting for my research position, the weekly LEAH case study/seminar series, and interpersonal experience at UW with various health specialties. Can’t wait to relax a little tonight! 🙂
I’ve got an IV of coffee hooked up to me 24/7 these days, so it’s not hard for me to imagine we’re talking over a steamy cup!
If we were having coffee…
I’d tell you that I’m headed to Boise, ID for the first time this month to visit my family and see our new house! We have a few days off over Thanksgiving, and it will be the first time my whole family has been together since Christmas last year.
It takes intention and practice every day to remain positive this quarter. The truth is that I’m emotionally and physically burned out from what I call “chronic” fatigue. I constantly battle how to overcome it, and am trying to practice more self care. Tips are welcomed!
I tried General Porpoise over the weekend and the pistachio/rose donut is divine
I’m debating signing up for the Whidbey Half Marathon in April (for the second time!) but can’t pull the trigger yet. Anyone else doing a spring half in the Seattle area?!
I discovered spaghetti squash a few weeks ago and my life is forever changed
Go vote. “But we must vote. We must nudge each other. We must drive each other to the polls. We must make calls, and send texts, and knock on doors, and we must not allow anyone to accuse us of ‘being political.’ Because this isn’t ‘politics as usual.’ This isn’t Democrat vs. Republican. This is Democracy vs. demagogue. Enough of us understand this. But we must show up.” – Humans of New York
timing is everything.
