Favorite Things : February 17 – 23, 2018

favorite things

What a week! Certain days were more productive than others. I’m still struggling to finish this third chapter. It is not that I am not working on it, it just grows and grows and grows. I wanted to have something to send in by spring break (next week Friday), but I am not certain that will be able to happen.

Tomorrow is my first double-digit run of the year and hopefully not the last. Tonight, I’ll make some dinner and do a little reading and relaxing, so I can start Saturday off ready and energized.

And without further ado, this week’s favorite things.

I do not own anything from Glossier and I’m not so certain I like that shiney, glossy look. It looks to me like the girls are sweating. But! This article on Glossier founder Emily Weiss was fascinating.

Back in the good ole days of elementary school, one of our punishments was to write out pages of the dictionary. It did not work for me. I still love scanning through dictionaries to this day. Glad to know I’m not alone. Also, I’m intrigued by the idea of reading a few pages of the dictionary a day. Most intrigued.

Life should be creative, not just your career.

Resilience is a good characteristic of both athletes and graduate students.

I’ve definitely run into a glass door before.

I once was anti-bread. I felt like hell. Now I am pro-bread and am much happier.

Every month Bruno and I have the grocery budget conversation. It is our biggest expense. Here are some useful grocery tips.

Have a great weekend!
