week 2 of (f)unemployment

week 2 started off strong: went for a run on sunday, yoga on monday, run on tuesday and paid for it all on wednesday. it's time to accept that i am no longer as naturally fit as i used to be. i decided to take thursday as a rest day and return to yoga next monday.

monday and tuesday i did a lot of admin around the house. i repacked my work kit and cleared out all the non-office items. i had 5 bags of comic books from when i was walking distance from my favorite shop at disney, getting caught up on those trade paperbacks is on my to do for today. i also worked on a few post drafts from my make shift floor/coffee table "office".

i've always been someone that needed background noise to work. this week it was gilmore girls on netflix. somehow watching rory start yale makes me feel like i can retroactively make better decisions about school. to the left, the results of my karlie kloss smoothie post.

i ate a little healthier this week, i may do a quick salad round up in the next few weeks. here's a sneak at one of my favorites.

i dove into a new video game. it seemed like less of a waste of time since i needed to rest my body, at least that's what i keep telling myself. lego harry potter years 5-7 is my new love. i ordered the game knowing i was going to have time off to play it that didn't turn me into a hermit. what i love most about the lego games is the free play option. once you've completed a level you can go back and play it again with other characters you've unlocked while unlocking more items. but i warn you, lego doby dieing is just has heart wrenching as cgi or book doby dieing.

the feels!

lastly, i did something i've never done before, ever: i went to a movie by myself. i'm not counting the times in college where i had to go to a screening for credit (yes, i was a film student) because i always knew i'd run into someone i knew from class. at 3pm on wednesday afternoon, i took myself to see ant man, alone. while cleaning out my closet last week i found 2 passes to the pacific theaters, no expiration date. going alone didn't feel as weird as i thought it would, the theater wasn't terribly crowded at 3pm on a wednesday, and i've got one ticket left so, another solo outing for me. if you haven't seen ant man yet, go, and stay to the end of the credits: it's all connected!!

have a lovely weekend, i'm off to defeat voldemort.
