This is the view from my friend's roof... (!)
Another quiet week on the blog, but I'm sure if you're a some-time follower you'll know that means I've been having lots of fun! I've hopped around to Brooklyn and Jersey, made several new friends, strolled in the sunshine, driven beside the city sky line at night, clambered rocks at midnight and seen a racoon up close. I've gotten addicted to Starbucks' iced vanilla soy lattes, been introduced to the American pitcher of beer, eaten a $1 pizza slice, gone vintage shopping and much more...
I have to admit that I'm a little disappointed in myself for not getting a writing schedule together, I'm sure you'll understand that I'm finding it tricky to strike a balance between working and playing in this crazy city...! I want to find a way to continue having all these great experiences whilst using my time without a 'real' job to write up a storm! Any tips?! Leave'em in the comments, I need you!
// Lovely reader Amber who sponsored Charade a little while back has a lovely new look on her lovely blog (lots of lovely.)
// Justine Musk on how to figure out your purpose/passion/just what the hell it is you want.
// I must have these bedside tables, on wheels. Big love. (The wallpaper is also something to behold - I'm thinking of papering my bedroom on my return to Bristol...!)
// Leo discusses doing what you love.
"That’s the amazing realization here: that we rule out the possibility of great change, because it doesn’t seem realistic. For nearly two decades I focused on going to college, and working at a day job that I sometimes enjoyed but often dreaded, because that’s what we expect should happen. Starting my own business, pursuing my dreams, doing something I loved? Crazy talk."
// Watch this and love it. The final quote is just...wow.
I hope your weekend is feeling miraculous and magical!
