Today is Tuesday. That means today’s blog is all about how it’s good to be here because it’s better than not being here. I love this theme. Whenever I get down on myself or what’s not going ah-mazing at the moment, I am reminded in little ways how charmed my life really is. For example, I get to write for you fine folks out there. That’s pretty cool.
But our reason for today’s BTAT is Summer.
Summer is a time of rest and relaxation for most people. Not for me. Summer means all day, all night studying for me.
But I got through it and had some fun, too! I mean, this was the Summer of the final Harry Potter movie!
I spent some fabulous time in the Hamptons with some awesome ladies from lululemon.
I did some outdoor yoga in the middle of Manhattan, which is always a good time.
I have a newfound love of my lovely running hat. I don’t get sunburned on my face when I wear it. Funny how that works, huh?
I was honored by my favorite company to become one of their Ambassadors. I said yes. And maybe I cried a little. Don’t judge.
And I experienced my first earthquake and hurricane (turned tropical storm) in the same week in the same city. And that city was New York City. Go figure.
But by far the best part of the entire summer was becoming an aunt for the very first time. My little Peanut is the sweetest baby on this planet and I miss seeing her even after only spending a few short days rocking her to sleep. Added bonus of spending some important time with my family in the great state of Colorado. Auntie Abby loves you, Peanut. You were the best part of my Summer.
So, as we bid adieu to Summer and a hearty HELLO to Fall, I think maybe my perspective on what my Summer 2011 has slightly changed since I started writing this post. It was a life-changing 4 months that I will remember quite fondly. Even though I spent a good 50% of it indoors deriving equations and banging my head against the wooden table just to make the pain in my brain go away, I had all of these really great moments that more than made up for it. And really, when you look at where I’m headed next year, this Summer’s classes were just a stepping stone to my dreams so who the hell am I to complain?
I hope you had as memorable of a Summer as I did. What was your favorite part? Tell me all about it and remember, every moment here is better than none at all.
Now go out and run!
