more than halfway to self aware| JUNE 1/4 LIFE THOUGHTS

Here’s the thing…I was driving to my credit union yesterday and I realized I was pushing it to the very last second to pay my credit card bill for June. Okay to be fair, I realized it when I woke up yesterday morning, but thankfully it was just in time. So I’m wasn’t prepared for the very end of June just like I wasn’t prepared for the beginning of it. But whatever, it’s fine. Self-awareness is very on brand for me. (Oh and since I’ve been asked before, no, I can’t pay that credit card bill online or in an app. I’ve tried and I have to physically bring a check in to the office. Or in yesterday’s case, the drive thru.) In the spirit of a lack of preparedness, I checked the Notes app in my phone and I had two bullet points written down for this post this month. Two. It’s fine.

1 – I still have to spend $15 per year for checks just to pay above mentioned credit card and my condo fees every month. I don’t know about y’all but when I was in fourth grade we spent a good week on check writing. My teacher had me convinced that a check was something I would need to have on my person at all times. Now, I’m lucky if I have one measly dollar. That’s why that guy who just got kicked off The Bachelorette developed Venmo, y’all.

2 – Speaking of The Bachelorette this season, it just sucks. Don’t get me wrong, I love Becca. I love that she’s from Minnesota and that she seems to be a chill chick. The guys, however, are not. They all suck. No one is there for the right reasons and it just seems so obvious this season. If these are the kinds of guys roaming around in the world, NO THANKS. Plus, I’m not overly convinced that she has no shot of finding a dude in real life that wants to date her. Then again if these are the guys roaming around, maybe we should all give up in general.

3 – I don’t have the emotional strength to care about or watch the World Cup this year. Y’all, the Stanley Cup took it all out of me. And due to the fact that I watched Game 5 under unusual circumstances (more about that later this week!) I still randomly cry over it. No, I’m not over it. I’ve become that asshole. But like I’ve mentioned multiple times, #SelfAware.

4 – Pardon me while I basic bitch for a moment – can you believe that we are already half way through the year???

5 – Now that I got that out of my system I have to say, I’m excited about a mid-way refresh. I reevaluated my vision board and my intentions for the year and it was a great check-in for me personally. I think keeping track of how and what we are doing throughout the year is amazing for personal development. Prior to this year, I’ve never done that. Now, I feel like I’m getting on track with creating a life and a future I want.

6 – I’m constantly amazed that the universe gives you exactly what you need exactly when you need it. Buddha once said “Everything is unfolding exactly as it needs to” and I’ve always tried to remember that.

7 – I’m turning into someone that loves waking up early before the sun even comes up. For example, I woke up at 4:17am this morning all on my own. WHY. HOW. WHO.

8 – I have become the kind of person who has to watch The Office every single day. I don’t know how we got here but if I don’t get some of that sarcasm in my life before I fall asleep, it’s not a good day.

9 – I was at an airport Chili’s this month and was able to organically use “I feel God in this Chili’s tonight” in conversation. I was super proud of myself.

10 – I don’t like things that are overly-hyped. One of those being the movie “The Greatest Showman”. On the way to Tennessee, I finally gave in and watched it. It was amazing and I highly recommend.

11 – Finally, I spent an entire flight from Detroit to Vegas being thee most hated person in the row. First, the couple next to me had to move completely out of their seats in order for me to get to my window seat. They were not thrilled. Second, since I had no time to eat my aggressive Gyro in the terminal, I opened it up and ate it right there as the plane continued to board. The woman was disgusted. Third, I figured I was already on the outs with my neighbors so why not solidify the deal by watching Gone Girl while in-flight. And there you have it. How to be hated on an airplane.

Until next month!
