+ The other day I tried to take Ethel on a walk. About 10 steps in, she laid down and wouldn’t move. Perhaps it was the noise of the cars scaring her or the fact that she’s unhappy any time the attention isn’t on her. Sadly all the beautiful spring blooms are stealing her adorable puppy thunder.
+ What do you do to stay creative? I work in a creative environment and am finding more and more that I crave the stability of putting together a spreadsheet rather than coming up with new content for social media and the blog I run at work. It’s not that I don’t love it. I do. Is burnout a natural phase in the creative world? How do you break out of it? Tell me!
+ DC is my favorite city in the world. I’m not sure if it’s just that some of my favorite people live there, the fact that they now have a place to get cereal milk milkshakes, or all the history vibes it gives off. Whatever the reason is, I love it.
+ When I was younger, I hated when my aunts, uncles, and sometimes even my dad would forget my age or what grade I was in. I have since become guilty of this offense. The other day when asked how old my niece was, I “guessed” that she was seven but couldn’t tell you what grade she was in. First? Second? What’s happened to my adult brain?
+ You know that song “Breathe” by Anna Nalick? It came out my junior year of high school and I heard it on the radio today. Made me wonder if I’ll actually go to my high school reunion later this year.
