in may I was forced out my rolls royce of cubes (by the window, on a path no one ever walks by, the holy grail of cubicles).

In june when the interns started we need five cubes together so I moved from my already new cube to the next cube over who belongs to a manager on my team who was on vacation for a month.

said manager is now back from vacation and so I need to move, but our admin keeps telling me to stay but this desk isn’t my desk. it’s full of his stuff. I feel so so awkward. 

file under things I’d never thought would be stressing me out at work.

Greetings from Breckenridge!

I just keep staring at the mountains that are in every direction. I’ve never been any place like this before and it makes me want to see every beautiful and wonderful place on earth.

So far we’ve hiked, and explored several small towns, acted like children on the alpine slide and been to the legal weed store (no purchases, but man that is some crazy!)

Mostly it’s just so nice to be away from work. Relaxing when I want to be relaxing. Spending time outdoors. And just hanging out with Jordan away from the craziness of home. Vacations are alright by me.

"Try to learn to breathe deeply, really to taste food when you eat, and when you sleep, really to sleep. Try as much as possible to be wholly alive with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell. And when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough."
Ernest Hemingway

a proper vacation!

On Saturday we leave for a full week in Breckenridge with Jordan’s family. I’m so excited I can hardly contain myself. It’ll be the first full week I’ve taken off since I started working, which I can’t believe, and I’ve been feeling exceptionally burnt out so it really couldn’t have come at a better time. I’m going to take my work email off my phone and really just check out. I’ve never been to Colorado and I can’t wait to hike and bike and just relax.

anyways, how many times do you think I can sing John Denver’s Rocky Mountain High before Jordan wants to break up? I hope it’s hundreds.

Me to hairdresser last night: can you make it look less like a bob?
Coworker to me today: cute bob!
I sent an evite for the very low key 30th birthday party we are having for Jordan’s birthday at our house and he RSVP’d with the cats.
