It’s been a few weeks, but I’m back on Friday Fiven it.
1. Last weekend was spent in Chicago at Yoga in the Sky, a yoga class and after party on the 103rd floor of the Willis Tower. It was a great yoga class coupled with the opportunity to get on the skydeck. If you don’t know what it is, hopefully my picture gives you an idea. A glass box juts out of the tower and you can stand in it.
2. On the 25th, Z & I celebrated 3/4 of a year together and buying a condo at the new (and fabulously decorated) Lurra Cocina in downtown Des Moines. Dreaming about furnishing this place and settling in. Mostly obsessed with upgrading to King size bed with this beauty.
3. I mentioned in a blog post and to several people in my life that grad school is just a struggle for me. I got some amazing input from friends, parents of friends, strangers, coworkers, and others who could speak from their own experience. I’ve had a handful of friends ask me, “so what are you going to do now!?” and my response is that I’m just going to take summer off and reassess during that time. I will finish the degree, but will try to take classes on campus in Ames and do more within my current class to get more value.
4. I’m absolutely loving being a part of the Beautycounter crew. In just a few months I was promoted to Senior Consultant and am growing to a place where I’m able to share how important it is to invest in skincare/cosmetics that are good for your skin/body. It’s something I’ve been interested in since I was a senior in college, but this company’s benefits, empowerment, and mission align perfectly with how I wanted to spend my time outside of the office. If this speaks to you, I’m hosting a social tonight from 6-8 p.m. on Facebook simply to learn about the brand and why it’s different.
5. Life Lesson #92837928:
“A lot of it is in the way you say things. The truth isn’t really that hard to handle.”
