I’m currently enjoying a bowl of strawberry yogurt flakes and watching Ellen. I only have three more weeks until I begin my full time internship, so I’m trying to relax as much as possible! I’m really going to miss having time in the mornings because I’m one of those people who takes a while to get going after I wake up.
One of the ways I’m trying to bring balance to my life is by doing more enjoyable things during the week. I hate how the work week is all work. Saving all the fun for just two days of the week makes the weekends fly by. I loved being able to get a little bit of work done on a Saturday in college in exchange for going out on a week night. You get the point. So, last night I attended one of my favorite events in Boston–Shakespeare on the Common! Seeing a play is the perfect way to take a break on a weeknight, especially when the performance is free!!. Matt (my boyfriend) is in charge of organizing events for the local young alumni of our college and he thought it would be fun if we got a group together to see Othello on the common. Only four alumni actually showed up, but we enjoyed chatting with a small group.
Before the performance, I picked up strawberry goat cheese salads from b.good. I also brought along a bottle of red from our mini wine collection at home (sorry about the blurry picture…I’m learning!)
The wine was called ‘Three Blind Mice’ and was delicious!
The weather in Boston was perfect (even a little chilly) and it made me excited for fall. The play was really well done, but I have to admit that Othello is not my favorite. Matt and I were sitting on a blanket and, by the end of the three hour performance, our necks were aching.
Cleaning up my apartment, a trip to the gym, searching for babysitting jobs (for the fall), and a Friday night beer are all on the agenda for today. I’m pretty excited to have no real plans!
