Hey, Babes! It’s Hump Day!
Just wanted to share a little glimpse of today with you. I’m sitting in my car using the Blogger app while I wait for the car to heat up (it’s still so cold here in DFW!). Heading into rush hour in just a couple more minutes. Taking this time to reflect on my goals for today.
In my bullet journal, I usually write down a section for every day where I list 1-4 specific items I’d like to complete after work that day. This keeps me focused and energized about making small steps on the blog. For instance, last night I added more citations with links to the Web sites. I also added high-resolution, royalty-free pictures to the blog. I also made my boyfriend’s Valentine’s Day gift, vegan red velvet cupcakes with whisky icing. Just in case you were wondering – I’m poly (known more formally as polyamorous) so I have multiple significant others who all know about each other. More on that later…
Anyhoo, after this I crawled into bed. Sleepy! This took most of the free time I had in the evening.
This morning I woke up to my alarm clock and turned on the phone in my face to give me a bright blue light (this inhibits melatonin production). Next I got up and brushed teeth, took meds, got dressed (capsule wardrobes article coming soon!), made breakfast, and listened to my favorite jams. This morning I got pumped with Panic! At The Disco and Chon.
So off to work now! Training on HPLC software so that I will eventually be able to run the sequences myself and care for the instruments (each one is worth about $20k!). I’m also training on the methods we use to verify that the raw materials meet the specifications we need to be able to say they’re good to make the makeup out of! Sounds like an interesting day!
Tonight I am going to Cheesecake Factory with my bf for a romantic dinner. That will probably take up most of my free time for tonight but totally looking forward to celebrating our friendship and relationship!
Hope your day is full of love and self-love! Muah! Happy Valentine’s Day, Babes!
