Just went on a short walk in my neighborhood to get some fresh air. It actually only lasted two minutes because most of the sidewalks weren’t shoveled. Does that still count as a walk? Here are a few shots from the walk:
On Thursday, we had a company welcome party for the Spring interns at the Goodman Theatre on Dearborn Street, and it was such a fun night! I didn’t know if I wanted to go or not because I’m pretty awkward at starting conversations, but I’m glad I went. I got to meet and talk to a lot of full-time employees while eating appetizers and having drinks. Honestly, everyone is so chill and has really cool stories to share. How does one become like that? It is a question I ask myself everyday.
Continuing on with my babble, I had brunch with the girls this morning, and although it was for only an hour, it was a very relaxing one! Alex came back from Korea with presents, and I got stationary!! I’m gonna write her so many letters. Even though we all have pretty busy schedules, it’s nice to get together once in a while. Definitely going to miss seeing them when they go back to Champaign.
IT’S SNOWING AGAIN. I think I’ve written about snow in almost all of my posts so far. I really just want summer to come. Hope everyone is having a safe and warm Saturday!
Not only am I new to work, but I’m also new to this church called Redemption Bible Church! Guess what that means? You’re right! More names to remember! All joking aside, I really do love going to work, and I loved the church I went to on Sunday. It’s basically what I’ve been looking for: located around 15 minutes away, congregation isn’t too large but not too small, a range of ages, and most importantly, the pastor speaks truth. I really appreciate how he tells it how it is rather than covering it up. It’s so real. Not to mention that the coffee is delicious and they put their own stamp on the cup. I love that hipster stuff.
I cannot believe it’s already Thursday. Only one more day of work and three more days until Sunday. Can’t wait to go back to church. Some people may think being excited for church is crazy, but I say it’s normal.
I’ve brought back to life the DSLR. I haven’t been using it a lot because it’s so inconvenient to carry around and iPhones take such great photos! As an added bonus, the iPhone has some great apps such as VSCO and Afterlight to edit. It’s been a long time since I’ve taken the DSLR to eat with me, but today I did, and I’m glad I did. I forgot how fun it is to take pictures!
I spent a few hours with Lizzie after church today, and it was lovely! I feel like I did most of the talking, explaining my job and the different aspects of it. I probably bored her with my talk, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. We went to Egg Harbor Cafe in Elmhurst for some breakfast food, and breakfast food is my favorite. I usually get something along the lines of pancakes or french toast, but I thought I would be healthy and ordered oatmeal. It was so good! Maybe I’ll start getting oatmeal from now on!
To digest a little, we walked around downtown Elmhurst, which is absolutely adorable. I used to live in Elmhurst so it was nice getting to walk around it a little. The weather was absolutely beautiful today too! The sky was clear-ish, the sun was shining, and it was 40 degrees! It was definitely refreshing after days and days of snow, rain, and gloomy weather. For dessert, we went to Elijah’s Coffee Shop, which is a neighborhood coffee shop. We shared a raspberry white chocolate scone and drank some tea. A lovely lovely afternoon!
I first came upon this store on accident while browsing the web. It’s a store based in London, but it now caters to customers world-wide. It began as a way for consumers to buy clothes that were of quality. What especially draws be to this store is its aesthetics. It’s clean. It’s fresh. It’s refined yet effortless.
There’s a part of me that wants to start another blog for a variety a reasons. For one, I feel like I’m not able to be as creative as I want to be on WordPress. This might be due to the fact that I am incompetent in the coding language. Second, I feel like I’ve had this blog for long enough. When I think about it, though, making another blog would complicate my life by giving me another face on the web. There are going to be some changes on this blog in the coming months; I’m going to be incorporating more of the things I enjoy. A lot of times I feel like I’m being judged for the things I like, but I think it’s time to be a little more confident.
Hopefully this blog will be like Goodhood: clean, fresh, and effortless. On that note, welcome to another year of Kriscape!
