Back from an amazing visit with my family. I feel like I really recharged and refocused. As much as I miss Indiana and everyone there and as hard is it is for me to leave, I know I am in the right place. I cannot stay home for the kids or my dog or my parents or my bedroom. I have to go and live my life.
Its hard to grow up for real. But its nice to go back home for a few days and remember what it was like to be little and sitting on the couch listening to your mom talk on the phone in the living room, with your dog at your feet and your dad watering the yard. Home.
I am intensely missing summer vacations. I was watching TV and these kids where on summer break and it broke my heart.
I will never have a summer vacation again. Yah Ill have a week off here and there but never again will i have that endless days and days of nothingness. That was great. I did not appreciate it enough when I actually had it.
Weekends are my little summers now…I will eat them up like candy.
This was the weekend of absolute laziness. And I loved it. I felt a cold coming on Friday so I nipped it in the bud. Hopefully gone for good.
However, I did do a bit of economic stimulating today. I felt it was my duty as a child of small business owners….no take that my duty as an American to spend a bit of money. G.W.B. gave it to me. Give it right back to America. And what can be more American than The Gap.
Its been Friday for 15 minutes. Thank goodness. I love the weekends. (I mean really who doesn’t??) I cannot wait to sleep in this weekend and just be. Sometimes I feel like work has taken over my life and that’s all I do.
Then the weekend comes and I feel like I get to be more for two days. The Jordan I wish I could be everyday. Relaxed and in control of my life and my activities.
Maybe someday I will have a job where I can do that. Be out and about all day. Its not that I don’t enjoy work I do but sometimes I get a little nutso being stuck in one building for 10 hours. But I am only 24 and I am still paying my dues and learning my way around the work world and this city.
You know what? I take that back, no maybe. I have full confidence that someday I will have a job that I can fully experience life away from a desk. But for now, the desk I am at is not a bad start. Even if it is a bit small.
All typical Wednesday spots! NOT! Caroline and I somehow got looped into going out tonite. Oh well. We made a curfew for our selves and stuck to it. In by 1:30. Hopefully work will not be too bad tomorrow.
And I want to apologize to any boys who may or may not work at Citigroup. I’m sorry I harassed you tonite and tried to make you come to bars you do not like. I’m also sorry you are still at work and its 1:39.
Peace out bean sprout. (Saying courtesy of my brother)
I have not been sleeping. I don’t know what the issue is but I cannot seem to get comfortable. Hopefully tonight will be more of a success.
Anyways, today was ABSOLUTELY beautiful. I tried to convince my friend to go to Shake Shack with me but he is a pooper and had to work late. It was the perfect day to be outside. I did get to enjoy it a little bit with C at lunch!
She has made me addicted to Whole Foods. Its a dangerous place full of wonderful food. I have also vowed to eat a bit healthier and it is the place to start. I also started drinking kombucha which Caroline is trying to convice me will promote great new health. For $3 a bottle it better…
