The Here and Now // 02.27.16

One of the reasons I blog is to have a reminder of the normal, everyday things I do each week, as well as the things I’m currently enjoying. While there will always be fantastic trips and exciting projects, the little things are what make the day-to-day exciting, and those are the things I don’t want to forget! Every/most Fridays, I’m giving you a peak into the song I’ve been jamming to, the books I’m reading, and anything else that’s been making my heart happy that week.

Whoops, long time no update! February is one of our craziest months at work, so the blog took a little bit of a backseat, but things should hopefully be slightly less crazy soon! I can’t really complain, I’m the kind of busy I love; work is mostly fulfilling, I’m spending time with friends, etc. Didn’t do as much checking off of the to-do list as I would have liked, but there’s always next week!

I loved this week. I don’t know if its because Mercury finally came out of retrograde or because I made a more conscious decision to have a positive attitude or because I’m finally feeling better and able to play soccer again, but I’ve felt like a weight has been lifted off me. To be honest, it’s probably all three. There were lots of exciting things this week, I went down to San Diego State for their study abroad fair, I made more plans for my big trip this summer, and today is my sister’s birthday!

Anyone else feel like this Friday took forever to get here? Maybe it’s because I’ve been fighting a cold, but this has been the longest  week ! I’ve been really busy at work, so its been nice to unwind in the evenings by holing up in bed with Netflix.

Looks

me and my new boots Cheesing  just because I love my new boots (you can get them here!) and I was waiting for my coworker outside the bank. But for real, these boots are insanely comfortable. I can already see them becoming a regular in my closet. Continue reading

Welcome to the new and re-branded Weekly Wrap Ups! These will still be (mostly) weekly, but I wanted a new name, because sometimes I might skip a week or have something I really want to talk about, and I just felt constricted calling my ‘life lately’ style posts weekly wrap ups, so now, they’re all retagged and will be called The Here and Now going forward!

Eats

roscoesI started off the first day back at work in 2016 by promptly putting myself into a food coma at lunch by heading to Roscoe’s House of Chicken and Waffles. It was definitely not my first time at Roscoe’s, but it was my first time at the Long Beach location and it was just as delicious as the chicken I’ve come to know and love at their LA locations. Smother your waffle in butter and syrup, embrace the calories, and go to town. Then commit to a kale salad for dinner, for your arteries’ sake. Continue reading

Greeting from Arizona! I’m here for a few days to watch my sister graduate from Northern Arizona University. I’m so proud of her, she’ll be getting her degree in hotel and restaurant management in just three and a half years! It was my favourite kind of week- a few days of work, home times in the evening, and a road trip to end the week!

It’s that time of year where I have something to do every night after work and too many events to count, and the extrovert in me is so so so happy. Today we had our office holiday breakfast (that’s me and some of my coworkers with the CSU Chancellor Dr. White below!) and then we had our division breakfast as well! I do so love this time of year!

This week, the holiday spirit has taken me over in a big way and I’m pretty pleased about it. We decorated at work, I’ve made a solid dent in my Christmas shopping, and holiday music has been playing. I played soccer again after 3 weeks off because of work and personal travel, and I got to meet one of my best friends’ newest additions (spoiler alert, she’s adorable). Solid week indeed!

I’m writing this after having spent most of the day Black Friday shopping. My favourite purchase was the Bourbon County Brand Stout from Goose Island. Yes, I will line up for beer. This week, of course, also included Thanksgiving (leftovers yes please!) and a very busy half week at work.

Whew, what a week it has been. 8 cities (Chicago, Long Beach, Sacramento, Pleasanton, San Jose, Modesto, Turlock, and now San Francisco)  in the past week makes for a very very tired Megan. I had some real highlights this week though, I’ve been really enjoying seeing new (to me) campuses and catching up on blog stuff and Netflix in the evenings. I also started listening to Christmas music, because Helene In Between and The Daily Tay said it was ok. Rocking out to Little Drummer Boy for the next 6 weeks with no shame.

This week started out great, but as I was writing this, news of the attack on Paris hit. It feels uncouth to talk about all the things I’ve been loving this week now, so I’ll leave you with this photo of the Chicago transit train I snapped earlier, and just say that I’m in Chicago and up until this afternoon I was having a great week.

Paris, you’re in all of our thoughts. I’m following the BBC coverage here.

*If you’re on Facebook and in Paris, please mark yourself as safe.*
