Lazy Hazy Springy Daze

The last two weeks has been awesome. I was temporarily laid off, which was the best thing that could have happened to me at the time. I felt I was falling apart and over-stressed, so the time off was crucial to my mental health. I have been really productive around the house decorating, putting up shelves and putting up artwork. I feel inspired when I look around now. I really needed to feel motivation and inspiration and get out of my gloomy slump. I've been cooking and baking, and going to the Eastern Market almost every weekend.

Besides fixing up the house, I've been working on myself too. I joined a gym and have been going 5-6 days a week (and on my off days working out at home). I feel so amazing to have a little bit of quiet time to collect my thoughts, and work out my aggression and anxiety at the gym. I've never been able to run or jog well before, but since I started going to the gym I have started running 4.5 miles every day and have improved my time by 4 minutes from day one until now. I actually really love running, and I keep adding time on to my runs now, because I don't seem to tire. I'm really really really super happy. I am excited for summer and I can deal with anything now.

On a side note, one of my good friends from High School, Holly is going to visit me tomorrow from Chicago. I can't wait to see her cute self. I'm also going to an 80's new wave dance night with my super cutie friend Sara, brunching, Eastern Market-ing, going to my old college professor's end of year party, seeing another good friend who is moving across the country, and having an awesome mother's day with my mom and me putting in a garden (unless it rains). What a happy weekend with so many beautiful, lovely people. Seriously, I'm so happy. Go get some sun!
