Songs Repeated

Since it's Friday, and I want to start the weekend on a fun note, I thought I would randomly post two of the songs I have been playing on repeat this week.

#1: All of Me by John Legend (Tiƫsto's Birthday Treatment Mix)

I like the original song too, but the remix makes me want to replay it over and over again or 
sing along to it in the car. 

I like the lyric, "What's going in that beautiful mind?" It's not often that a guy compliments a lady's beautiful mind - at least not in mainstream music, so it was a welcome change. I wonder if he played this song at his wedding.

#2: This is Amazing Grace by Phil Wickham

Now, this is a complete 180, or is it 360? Anyways, I heard this on the radio last Saturday, and I haven't been able to stop playing it everyday this week. It's just so HAPPY and encouraging, and I dunno, just so true. I also like the beat.

What songs have you been playing on repeat this week?

Relaxing or laziness?

I had today off from work because our annual conference was this week. Even though I did not attend, I am definitely enjoying my day off.

Here's what I have done today:
  • Woke up early (6:30 a.m.) to have breakfast with my family. My little brother spent the night so it was either meet for breakfast or take him to school myself. 
  • Watched the new episode of Scandal and Project Runway while in bed
  • Emptied the dishwasher
  • Watered my plants. (I am trying to grow kale, and two different types of lettuce from seed.)
  • Watched an episode of Breaking Bad from season 5 on Netflix while in bed
  • Went to lunch with my Dad at Hana Matsuri Sushi. We went there partially because I had a Yelp deal to redeem (worth $15) and partially because I love this place and wanted my Dad to try it out. He had the Chef Sashimi Special that came with rice and a house salad. I had the Salmon Terikayi with four pieces of sashimi, shrimp and vegetable tempura, and a house salad. 
  • Came home and proceeded to watch the rest of Season 5 of Breaking Bad on Netflix while in bed
  • Stayed in yoga pants and a t-shirt all day
At about 4 p.m., as I lay in bed, I started to wonder if I had completely wasted my day off or not. Which led me to ask myself the question, "Am I relaxing or being lazy?"

Of course I couldn't decide exactly ... or maybe I just wanted validation for not really doing much today at all (because I kept thinking how much more my Mom would have done if she had today off). I asked five guys I have dated the same question I asked myself (over text of course because these men were actually working!) and here are their responses.


Laziness is doing it for a long time and relaxing is when you do it once in a while.




Based off their responses, I am not being lazy today and am instead relaxing!

What do you think the difference between relaxing and laziness is?

A new blog

Lately I have had so many wonderful blog post ideas, yet I have not written anything. I truly would like to switch over to Wordpress & create a new blog - one that's about me and my interests. My only concern is that most blogs usually have a specific focus, e.g., weight loss, cooking, sports, etc. I envision my new blog to be about my different interests--which are constantly evolving & changing--and who I am.

Therefore, for the few people that still read this, I need your help. Help me to figure out a new title for this (now imaginary) blog.
