I’m back to being single and that means I have my weekends back to myself. I was actually dreading this weekend since it was the first one that I was spending completely alone in the past few months but I was pleasantly surprised at the outcome. Because really, when am I ever really alone?
Friday night Annie and Josh took me out on the town for sushi and drinks which was exactly what I needed, especially the gin and tonic with the pink straw on Lazy Dog’s rooftop after the sun had gone down and it finally got a little cooler out. Yes, this was the weekend where the US became eleventy billion degrees and Boulder was no exception. Friday late night was a little rough and I will not go into details but let’s just say that I am shocked and disappointed by what happened.
Saturday I poured myself into The Wanderscapes; creating content, doing graphic design work and goal-setting. I was very productive and feeling pretty good about everything, despite…well, everything. I started watching How I Met Your Mother since I’ve only ever seen random reruns and some of this season. It’s about damn time. Seriously, the episode with the cockamouse? I was crying I was laughing so hard. Reminded me of the incident I had with a cockroach in my NYC kitchen…
I also met up with a friend Saturday to talk blog and it was great to just sit and talk about our new ventures, drink iced coffees and enjoy the wonderfully cold AC. Even though I have a wall unit in my apartment my south facing lovely living room ROASTS in the summer. Thank god the basement level bedrooms are about 20-30 degrees cooler. Sleeping would be unbearable. After meeting up with Katie, I had dinner again with Annie and Josh and watched Napoleon Dynamite before crashing on my sofa for the rest of the evening.
Sunday was more of the same and I did some work on a photobook I got as a Groupon over a year ago that I’m making into a photobook of my trip to Europe in 2009. This is the hardest thing EVER because I have around 3,000 photos. If not more. And I love all of them. Sorting through them is really fun though and is a serious trip down memory lane. Makes me want to go back there RIGHT NOW. I broke myself away from that to go see Snow White and the Huntsman with Chad, who originally was attempting to get me to go see Prometheus but I put my foot down. I went and saw The Avengers with him last time, it was my turn to go see a movie I wanted to see! It was…alright. I was entertained but A. I don’t like Kristen Stewart and B. The animals flocking to her scene was unnecessary and didn’t really make much sense unless it was a Disney movie. I did enjoy the Huntsman though. Mmmm tasty.
After the movie, Morgan and I grabbed some yummy thai food and lounged at her place where she made me watch The Glee Project (verdict is out on that one still) before I headed home to watch movies and veg on my sofa.
Oh and I relaunched The Wanderscapes. I just got too excited to wait until today! The new design is up and running and I’ve announced the direction it’s going to take! That is, combining all of my biggest passions in life. I’m super excited about this now and I even have some plans for this here bloggity blog.
This was exactly the weekend I needed after a stressful couple of weeks on the relationship front. You know it’s not meant to be when, after the initial hysterics post-breakup talk, you are relieved that it is over. Sure, I have my weak moments where I miss him and am sad but overall, I am doing pretty effing great. I read this article this morning from Exile Lifestyle that really hit home. It talks about how a person should add to your life, not subtract (and shouldn’t complete you, either). This relationship started as making me a better person and adding to my life but then as quickly as it went up, it started making me a person I didn’t like and that made me not really like him all that much either.
I hope everyone had a lovely weekend! What did you do?
