Happy Friday! Sorry for no post yesterday you guys. I ended up getting a new phone Wednesday so my day was pretty boring since my night was mostly spent get my phone set up. Thank you to everyone who gave me suggestions of getting my pictures off the broken one! I ended up accidentally finding them in the “Memories” section of the photos app and was beyond excited when I stumbled upon them. If you asked Alex he may say I said “I can’t believe I got them!” approximately 38963 times. Just like that you’re caught up on my oh so exciting life 😉
In true Friday fashion, I’m sharing some things I’ve been obsessed with this week with you all.
This will probably surprise you all but I have not had scrambled eggs in a week. I’ve been having fried eggs and loving them. Personally I don’t like the taste of egg whites and runny yolks freak me out so I break the yolk and try to spread it around the egg. Alex and I have been making fried eggs for breakfast all week. I like topping mine with salt, pepper and hot sauce.
Social Media Detox
The downside to my phone breaking this week was that I couldn’t communicate with anyone unless I was carrying my laptop around the apartment. Don’t get me wrong, I did it and was grateful that iMessage is on Macbooks but I felt a little ridiculous. The benefit of not having a phone was getting a little bit of a social media detox. When I couldn’t go onto any social media and just mindless scroll, I realized how if I’m bored then that’s what I’ll do. Not having the ability to do that made me feel good and I’m going to try to keep the streak going where I don’t just sit on the couch and mindlessly scroll.
Sitting On The Balcony
The apartment Alex and I live in is on the second floor so we have a little balcony to sit on. Last year we never got patio furniture for it and whenever I wanted to sit outside I would carry out a chair from our dining room table. Then if Alex and I wanted to enjoy a glass of wine we would awkwardly stand out there and anyone at the park could see us haha. Last Friday, we went to Target and ended up buying two chairs and a little table. I’m pretty sure we’ve sat outside every night that Alex has been home early from work. The weather is perfect for it now and it’s so nice to be able to unwind at the end of the day.
If you read the news at all, then you’ve probably seen countless articles about how millenials are technology obsessed, changing the way we work and ruining the world. This article summarizes a study that was done to show how it’s actually Generation X (those born between 1965 – 1981) are changing the nature of work. Gen X, which is considered the forgotten middle child according to the author, is in more leadership roles now in the work force and how they are leveraging technology to change the nature of work. It’s pretty interesting since I thought that it would have been millenials doing these things.
Question of the day: What’s one thing you’ve been obsessed with this week?
