This picture explains my summer so far. The sun, the beach, and this reusable straw cup. My hair has been like this for a week because this New York City humidity is out of this world, I haven’t learned how to use products to maintain the frizz, and I am only doing protective styling on my mini trips. About trips….
I’m no longer taking those mini secret getaways anymore. They’re missed but I’m still able to get away. I’m working on my relocation to Dallas, Texas and have made a few friends on my random visits. I recently came back from Dallas and I had a blast. I enjoyed free meals, the warm air and sun, I went to church with a friend that weekend, and watched a music video being tapped at the pool of another friend’s luxury apartment complex. I love the pool but my skin hates the chlorine. I’m excited about the future transition to Texas but everything happens in time.
This summer reminds me of my best summer – #summer2014. I traveled to a few cities after my international trip to Paris, I spent my summer nights in the city (Manhattan), and my weekends in Brooklyn. I was hanging out with my friends and everything felt normal for once. This summer is almost as close to that summer and I’m happier than the last three summers to say the least.
Summer is zooming since were already in the middle of July, but I’m gearing up for the fall. I’ll start caring about my twist out again and prepping for my GRE studies. It seems like I’m career hopping but I might be thinking about kids in the next few years and I can’t have them in New York City or without some good benefits/education (this can be a WHOLE post but no rant here), I THINK. My anxiety and overthinking won’t allow me to think otherwise, someone please convince me to think differently, I’ll continue to pray on it.
Nothing major to update I guess for now. Healing, growth, unlearning, and progressing – Currently.
How’s #summer18 treating you?
