Friday Drinks #1

My apologies for not writing much lately. Work's been crazy. Life has been hectic. So, let's sit and chat over coffee or beers or whatever!

* One thing I did make a little time for was a binge session for the hot documentary on Netflix, Making a Murderer. This show was mindblowing. I can't tell you if Steven Avery killed Teresa Halbach or not. But I was floored by the determined way in which the Manitowoc County Sheriff's Office went after him. They wanted to get him for whatever they could. And that Brendan Dassey hasn't received a new trial is criminal. He was completely disserved by possibly the worst public defender in history in Len Kachinsky. I could go on and on, and if you want to discuss feel free to send me a message. I have many an opinion on this one! And, if you haven't watched the documentary. Do so.

* I had said one of my goals for 2016 was to start working out. Well, I did join the gym and have begun working out. I'd honestly missed that more than I even imagined! Had a rough day at work? Go to the gym and work all my rage out before taking it out on anyone!

* Another goal was to sign up for a race. While it's not a road race, I have signed up for this: The 2016 Puppy Love Virtual Run - 5k/10k/Half Marathon
I signed up for the 5K because I am working my way up. And walking is welcome! It will be a nice challenge and benefits the American Humane Society. I really dig doggies and kitties too, so! Boom! I can run/walk this Feb. 13-21. I'll let you know!

* The BlogHer Writing Lab prompt this month have been reflecting on balance. ... I need to work on that! How about you? It's amazing to be in your 30s and not have it figured out yet. Oh well! Life is an adventure.

* Red Oaks on Amazon Prime is pretty amazing. The 80s. Tennis. Country clubs. Have you watched? Other Amazon shows you like?

* Very nice that winter decided to show up this week. Ice is the worst.

* Quick politics thought. Sarah Palin endorsing Donald Trump. Did you see his face when she rambled for 20 or more minutes in her opening speech!

This pretty much proves what a joke his candidacy is, but it should make the next few days before the Iowa Caucuses a little more entertaining. I also hope it means Tina Fey makes a return to Saturday Night Live this weekend. 

* Speaking of stuff to watch, this picture alone makes me want to catch 13 Hours. John Krasinski is looking good these days! Also makes me miss Jim and Pam from The Office! This is like an amped up Jim though! Look! 

 So tell me what's going on with you!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

The sun washed over my face.
Warmth washes over me.
Looking down, I see the ocean water crashing against my legs.
The water is not deep at all but burries my feet in sand.

This is my first attempt at trying about Yeah! Enjoy and dive in if you want!

Happy New Year! Goals for 2016

Ok, first things first! 

Yeah, I made that. Thanks, Canva! ;)

I've never been really great at doing New Year resolutions. I'm more of a goal setter. So let's talk a little about my goals for 2016.

* Enjoy life. It's simple enough. But y'all, I get anxious and let silly stuff stress me out. Remembering to take the time to enjoy the little things ... friends and family, and getting to spend time with them and not take anything for granted. It's important.

* Get Healthy. I have been working on this one for a while. But I am going to take the step to join a gym, again, this year. A new one is opening here and has better hours (24/7) so, Why not! I also want to step up and do a race this year. Even if it is a virtual. Yeah, ok, I'll do a 5K and move up in distance from there. I have friends who do half marathons for funsies, so why not!

* Improve Diet. I've lowered my carb intake, began using Almond Milk, drinking more water, eating more fruits. I basically wanted to continue on the track I'm on and improve!

* Make this little place awesome! I want to make this a nice place where I can share my thoughts and talk with y'all! I have lots of ideas so we shall see what happens here.

* Work on my photography. I have a photojournalism degree. I enjoy taking pictures. It's incredibly relaxing and a nice form of expression. I want to do some more of it this year. Whether it's starting something big or just sell a few shots. We'll see!

* Improve myself financially. Nuff said.  Plans.

* Travel. This will happen easier when I improve myself financially. So. This is a hopeful goal!

So. That's it for now. I have a few other personal goals that I'll work on.

I hope you all have a wonderful, fun and successful 2016. All my love!
