Summer Plans

Though I've been working for several years now, I can't stop thinking in terms of summer plans. Perhaps it's because so many of my peers are still in school (somehow) or have gone back to get their graduate degrees (so glad I'm done!)... or even that we still have so many interns and new staff start in the summer. 

It's probably all of those. Either way, this summer, I plan on relaxing. I plan on travelling. I plan on focusing on myself and what makes me happy. 

I never thought that I would look forward to summer, but I have a few trips to Arizona planned this summer. There's something about the blazing oppressive heat of Arizona that makes you want to sweat it all out and start anew. And in Seattle? Well, the the long days, blue sky and sunshine after a long dark winter just makes me want to spend all day by the beach. 

I plan on moving this summer to West Seattle. I'm not sure where yet, but I think if it as an amazing, idyllic town. I'm sure I have a lot to learn. A few vacations, a move... and I'm even thinking about adopting a dog later this year. Only half the year has gone by and I think the second half of 2017 will be much more exciting than the first half. 


  1. Seattle is a lovely city! I hope whatever your plans may be in regards to moving that you find a happy place in West Seattle.

  2. I wish I'm still at school because I would've been in summer break XD. There's always grad school if I bother to apply. it's great that you have a couple of trips in mind. When I watched the news today, they said Arizona was super hot this week!!! Hope you'll get there when the weather is great. Seattle is a really nice town that's still in affordable phase :).

  3. Cool post! Have a wonderful week, dear! xoxo

  4. Wow! Moving into a new place is definitely the most exciting yet in a way, the scariest thing ever. The feeling of having to explore a new environment makes me thrilled! ❤️ Good luck! I may not know you personally, but I'm totally excited and happy for you! :) Hear from you soon!

    Love, Airish

  5. It sounds like you have a wonderful summer planned! I hope the next half of 2017 is just as good as you imagine ti to be, and that you achieve all of your goals (we adopted our pup 6 years ago, he's the cutest thing and we are thankful every day for him!)

    Hope you are having a lovely summer :)
