I’ve got only a couple of days left in the southwest before I head back to the winter wonderland that’s currently the east coast. Since I’ve been here in Las Vegas, I’ve been working on east coast hours (i.e. work starts between 5am and 6am), and I am sort of exhausted. Granted I usually get up at that time in D.C. to workout, but this is a little different. I literally am at my computer communicating with people in full sentences by that time of the morning now, and tend to forget which time zone I’m in when work is done for the day. Having normal hours (and coworkers I can see face to face) will give my brain some relief.
That sweet little 54 degree temp is like a beacon of hope. (And apparently I’ve lived on the east coast too long since I’m considering the 50s to be warm weather.)
Anyways, I wanted to share two gems with you guys today! First of all, my best friend Meg shared this video with me last week, and I’m in love with everything about it.
I might be behind the times and this video has been out for years now, but it’s news to me and I was too excited to not share it with you all.
I feel like the kid in it (kid president?) is a son I never knew I had. This video reminded me of how important it is to love life and have that fire in your belly. Also, the kid goes by the name “Soulpancake,” and that’s pretty much the most awesome name ever. I feel a little jipped that no one ever gave ME that nickname back in elementary school. Although maybe that’s a good thing.
Also, one more thing! This article on what it’s like to be a twenty something these days? Holy moly. I was practically rolling on the floor laughing when I found this silly jif-filled article trending yesterday after work. Do yourself a favor and read it.
Oh, and in case you’re wondering, since the Paleo challenge ended, I’ve been extremely not Paleo. I needed a brief Pirate’s Booty intervention over the weekend. I’ve realized in the last few days, though, that I liked how I felt on Paleo better than now that I’m off. You’ve got to listen to your body.
…after you listen to Soulpancake.
Have a great day!
