Forget a man, walk like a bird

There is so much to learn in new media journalism. It is such an ever evolving world. What's really funny is that I am learning new tricks to to apply to old tricks in so many ways. I am pleasantly surprised with the knowledge I have already earned. I feel fresh validation for my time spent interning and freelancing as a writer. I am so thankful for this. The best thing about this though is that my want for knowledge is increasing too. The course material is building already and I have a list generating on things to really remember pulled from various class resources. The fountain is trickling.

Big question: Can you really learn it all? Answer: Not sure. I spent a chunk of time walking today and taking in nature's glory. On my journey met two friends and as I watched one of them agilely maneuver over the construction fence. Even with cars speeding past mere inches from him, he safely walked crane-bird like towards the water unaffected. I exhaled with him long enough to appreciate it and take his and his lady friend's picture. If just every once in a while the seemingly unmissable obstacles are defeated in such a way, I hope I am as graceful and unaffected too.

Self care reset

We all hear the buzzwords self care more than ever these days. Every where you turn, a lifestyle blogger, health guru, or magazine article shares insight on ways to treat yo self to some basic T.

While I love modern discussions as much as the next girl, I’m aware sometimes it just doesn’t fit and you have to reset what isn’t working. For example, some weeks I am just done by the tine Friday hits. Hell, a rough Wednesday or Thursday has crept in there, too, requiring a pause and reflection for how best to naturally beat a funk or a “feeling of less than stellar”.

Here my top self care reset ideas for your consideration:

Drink water: Warm it with some lemon, try some green tea for an antioxidant boost, or just plain old room temperature is a sure way to get the boost to feeling a bit better.

Face it: Fewer things feel as good as a really great face mask. I love charcoal in particular lately and always feel refreshed and restored and ready to ‘face’ another day. See what I did t…

Blogtober Day 26, Who would play you in a movie...

Ohhh good one, Blogtober.

Someone once told me I reminded them of Drew Barrymore. They didn't say if it was for look or personality, so I'm not sure where they drew the conclusion from. See what I did there?

I threw this out to one of my very best and oldest friends Andrea. Talking it out, we agreed that Drew and I do share some similar qualities, both in personality and in dressing and accessorizing. Andrea reasoned that Drew is quirky and a little less traditional, much like me. I reasoned we have the same headbands:

I also recalled that when I was a little girl, everyone thought I looked like a young Drew Barrymore. Both my parents have said people would come up to them all the time and remark on my resemblance to her in that movie Firestarter:

Whatever it is, I would absolutely be pleased if Drew played me in a movie.

Now, if Penelope Garcia was a real person and not a character on a TV show (Criminal Minds), she would undoubtedly play me in a movie:
