He's Intentional...and so am I

Hola, mi gente! Ekele, ndi'm! Greetings, my people.

Seeing as its about to be February, it seems silly to say Happy New Year but Happy New Year all the same. Its only been a month into 2017 and already the year is dragging. Or is it because Chester Cheeto is my new "president" and seems hell bent on ruining the world. I don't know.

Anyway, on to better gist.

I would say being intentional is my new years resolution but 1- i don't make new years resolutions and 2- I've been working on this for some time now. Much sooner than Jan 1, 2017.

I like to pride myself on being a planner. A thinker. A forecaster, if you will. I can't function in extreme chaos. I like there to be sense in what I do and I like what i do to make sense. So its a surprise to me even how i've let myself get caught up in just...doing things just to be doing them.

No mas though. 

I've been working on making decisions that are best for me in the short term AND the long term. Severing ties that i know should've been severed long ago. Putting myself out there more. Making connections. Pursuing opportunities. 

Being intentional.

This is 30

It's been a week since i waved a tearful goodbye to my 20s. I'm still trying to adjust. I feel like i became an old woman overnight. I didn't even celebrate it. Which was as much of a surprise to me as it was to everyone else. I mean, if you had asked me 6mos ago what i was doing for the dirty30 (or flirty30 as Toin called it lol), i would've had a laundry list of ideas.

Oh well.

It turned out to be just another Thursday.

Got up, got myself together. Went to work. Ironically, we had our annual town hall meeting so that meant free breakfast:

and a 'holiday' token of appreciation:

I treated myself to California Pizza Kitchen for lunch since it was actually payday too. (what a birthday wake up to money in your bank account)

When i got back from lunch, i found my cubicle like this:


I did make plans to go to the spa that weekend but that didn't come to fruition. I did however get pretty much all my Christmas shopping done that weekend so there's that.

Happy Holidays everyone.

Shoot Your Shot

Cuffing Season is well underway.

But if the season isn't going so well, not panning out the way you planned, or if you've hit a snafu...never fear.

November 18th is the official Shoot Your Shot Day. Your last ditch attempt at locking down a holiday season sweetie. (Or your chance to grow a pair and holla at that cutie you've been eyeing all this while)

So go ahead. Slide into some DMs....

Send out those "hey stranger" texts. 

May the odds ever be in your favor!
