I think I’ve just snagged a neonatal job in Austin!

Yesterday afternoon I found a few childcare positions for the UT Austin daycare. Even though I have years of experience working with children, those years of experience have taught me that I love children, but I don’t really enjoy “watching” children. It’s draining and routine.

I found this video in a random person’s Instagram bio, and it has turned out to be the only yoga series that:

  • I actually enjoy
  • Raises my heart rate (cardio)
  • Deeply relaxes me
  • Challenges my limits
  • Has stunning imagery
  • Has a narrators voice that I’m extremely fond of instead of extremely annoyed by

I will be purchasing this series.

This is a gem.



I had a blast in Austin last night! I’m overjoyed that I’m going to be moving to this wonderful city in exactly one month. The concert was at Stubb’s Bar-B-Q. The White Arrows, Travi$ Scott (my friend Toni was JEALOUS), and, of course, The Neighbourhood. The Neighbourhood is my all time favorite band, so it was a moving, spiritual experience.

I also got a photo with the lead single of the White Arrows!



Just bought a one day ticket for Austin City Limits! I’m going on Sunday, October 12th for Weekend 2. I strategically chose that day and weekend because that’s the only day Lorde is performing. I already missed my chance to see her at Coachella, so I’m not letting it slip out of my hands this time.
My best friend doesn’t like the lineup for October 12th because, “It sucks!” That shocked me because I thought that was the BEST day. October 12th features some of my favorite acts such as Phantogram, Fitz and The Tantrums, Imelda May, MØ, and Melanie Martinez. I told her, “Just pick the day you want, and I’ll buy that ticket too.” That’s how serious I am about the 12th!

I had a great time in Austin last night (as usual)! My friends and I find every excuse possible to go up there. We love it so much.

We went to Barton Springs. It was amazing there! BUT, I almost drowned. My best friend LITERALLY saved my life by shoving me away towards shallower water (haha)! Her response was, “I don’t know how to save people.” Point taken. All jokes aside, I have officially learned the importance of swimming lessons and life jackets.

I recently snagged a sublease in the same apartment complex as my best friend (who was also accepted to UT Austin!) We visited the apartment complex and I loved it from what I could see. (We arrived at closing time, so a tour was out of the question.)

Then we went to this “ghost town” in a nearby small town called “Manor.” We learned that it was built by one man all by himself. He has his Bachelor’s degree in mental health. The family who owned the place were SO COOL. I wanted to stay there forever!

One of my friends almost cried because she ended up missing out on the free Chic-fil-a meals being given out for “Cow Appreciation Day.” (Hint: She’s a coupon-clipping penny-pincher.) We arrived at the nearest restaurant right as the store closed. I have never in my life seen someone get so depressed over baked chicken sandwiches.

We arrived downtown, but it was getting late, and our overprotective mothers were getting worried, so we went straight home.

It was a great time. My best friend and I will be back in Austin on July 18 for The Neighborhood concert at Stubb’s!




Fingers crossed: things will get better

I’m back home after a wonderful 3-day family trip in Houston. On our way back, we got a flat tire. This wonderful man decided to stop by the side of the road and help us replace our tire. He was definitely an angel. I still believe in good Samaritans. It truly makes me want to do random acts of kindness for others!
