Hopefully everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving! I had so much fun out in New Jersey with my friend Zara, her boyfriend, and her family. There was plenty of food and laughter, so all is well in my book.
So consistency in my posting is lacking, I know. I’m not going to post “just to check in” but I am also trying avoid a blogger burnout (tips from Georgie here). This has hurt my traffic but I have never really been about the numbers. Sure, seeing them skyrocket is always a plus but I usually am able to thank my friend and birthday twin Ali to boost my traffic for a day or two 😉
Anyways, I haven’t spent many evenings at home this week, which is very rare for me! Between babysitting and going to work events, there hasn’t been any time to decompress. So lounging around, reading, catching up on shows like Netflix’s The Crown, and rearranging my room are ALL on my to-do list this weekend. I’m torn on one thing and maybe people reading can help me decide. So I have an AC unit that can be removed (but hasn’t) and I have a feeling is letting a breeze in. Now if I remove it, I could still open the window BUT if it does get toasty in the winter (remember last December’s warm weather?) I wouldn’t have access to the fan or AC. Then again, I don’t foresee too many boiling nights in the dead of January. Thoughts or previous experiences?
NYTimes.com ~ “Quit Social Media. Your Career May Depend On It” ~ My aunt sent me this and while I do whole-heartedly agree it would be better for my concetration levels and FOMO, it wouldn’t do much for my social life or blog life. This is because a majority of our November Project correspondence happens through Facebook and a number of people read my blog when I publish it through social media. Now if I can just keep myself from logging on when I’m bored, that would be great.

^^ Highlights from last week’s trip to Long Island. A lovely 5k, matching my friend Pete, and some sweet donuts from the local shop
Did anyone watch the live streaming of the Presidential Medal of Freedom Awards? There were so many wonderful recipients there from Ellen DeGeneres to Tom Hanks, from Robert DeNiro to Bruce Springsteen, from Lorne Michaels to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and my favorite – Vin Scully! I almost wanted to cry because he makes me so happy.
Have a wonderful rest of the weekend and let the Christmas holiday festivities and cheer begin!
