Spending Thanksgiving weekend in the city was kind of nice. It was a relaxing little break before the holiday madness kicked off in full swing. On Thanksgiving Day, I had a pretty low key agenda… Went to SoulCycle (natch), tried to see some of the Macy’s parade (major fail.. worst idea I’ve had in a while), met up with Rose for some coffee, and then went home and ate the majority of a large pizza (second worst idea I’ve had in a while). Minus the poor decisions, it was nice to just decompress and wander around a seemingly empty city.
Thank goodness I did try to force a little relaxation last weekend because this week was
kind of a doozy! (Apologies for being MIA!) Any tranquility that I instilled back into my life & apartment last weekend was out the window by, like, Tuesday this week. I couldn’t be happier that it’s finally the weekend! My goal is to try and catch my breath.
I had a lot of my plate at work this week, evidenced by the all-nighter I pulled at work on Tuesday night. (Got home as the sun was rising on Wednesday morning. Yolo?) Other than the lack of sleep and a jam-packed to-do list, my apartment is in a state of distress. And when my apartment is a mess, I feel like my life is a mess. There are boxes everywhere from Black Friday & Cyber Monday deliveries.. Clothes strewn all over the floor from way too many last minute shoots.. Heaping piles of laundry because I haven’t found time to go to the cleaners.. Shoes literally everywhere because there’s just no place to put them.. I don’t have a single grocery item in my refrigerator, unless Sauvignon Blanc or 15 different kinds of pumpkin beer counts. Oh, and my bed has basically turned into a twin because I’ve apparently moved my desk into my bed. I’ve been sharing my bed with my 2 computers, a few magazines, my planner, a few notebooks, and all of my random scraps of paper with notes jotted down. There are probably a few pens in here somewhere, too. It ain’t pretty, guys. Definitely having one of those weeks where I feel claustrophobic in my own skin. #NYCproblems #HOTMESS
Here’s to getting my shit together this weekend… Wish me luck!
