Mondays & Record-Breaking
Get your Mondays together
Monday sucks. Good news is, it’s almost over! Most of us have summer jobs (ugh, adulting), and getting back into the groove for the week can be a little difficult. The Monday Blues is real, people.
I’ve been away on vacation for the last week, so coming back to work today was pretty rough. But I got up early to tackle the day, and I followed some helpful tips to keep me going.
The most helpful thing for me when it comes to a productive, successful, and satisfying week? It’s actually not making a to-do list. At least, not in the traditional sense. I tend to be a pen-and-paper sort of person, so I block out specific times in my planner for certain projects. I also make sure to block off some time to deal with unplanned tasks or issues that might come up during the day so that my week won’t be thrown off by anything. Blocking off time for tasks helps you feel less overwhelmed by all the tasks you need to do, and it will help you avoid trying to multitask (which usually leads to less productivity overall).
Let’s talk Wonder Woman.
Specifically, the amazing, explosive, empowering new movie from the DC Universe, and the wonderful women who made it possible.
Director Patty Jenkins is actually only the second female director ever to direct a live-action Hollywood movie with a budget over $100 million. The film brought in $103.1 million domestically and about $223 million overseas on its opening weekend.
That’s all I have to say though. You’ll have to go see it to find out more!

The Earth is a Village
Over the last 12 months, I have spent time in a wide range of locations across the Northern Hemisphere, challenging myself to build new relationships in cities and nations that differ significantly from the precious relationships I have built at home in California. During the last year, I’ve worked and spent time in 14 different European countries and 8 American states. I’ve taken the time to at least attempt to build relationships in all of these places.
