Is it brutally hot where you are? We've had a heat indexes around 100 for the past week, and with the humidity it's suffocating!! WANT. POOL. NOW! Making a trip down to Hilton Head sound even more tempting. I still haven't decided whether or not I'm going to go for a few days next week (to my parents' house there), but I'm really leaning towards it. It just sounds so relaxing! I feel like that would be amazing to have right before school starts up again! Just deciding if the long drive is . . .
Today was GO GO GO! I slept in a little due to a late-ish night out with friends (pics on Insta!) and then started my day at a research meeting with my dean. He has become a really great mentor, so we always chat about everything, not just the research project. It's about to ramp up with data collection starting this fall, so that's good! But we also went over some plans for wellness activities at the start of the school year and even some curriculum ideas. After the meeting I swang by to . . .
Be up to something bigger than yourself. That's one of my favorite themes in Baptiste Yoga. How can you use your talents and power to benefit others? How can you become your best self and then share it with those around you? In fact, part of our yoga teacher training is to come up with an idea to bring yoga to others. I'm not totally decided on what I want to do yet, but I am inspired by my recent yoga "classes" with my dad. It's been really helpful for his bad back and arthritis, and . . .
Dublin is one of my favorite places in the whole world. I'm lucky enough to have visited seven times, one of which included going to school at University College Dublin for four months. I actually just got back from my most recent trip a few weeks ago! (Recaps here and here.) I have especially loved getting to experience the city with my Godparents and friends that live there, allowing me to get to know some off-the-tourist-track spots. If you're visiting Dublin soon, first time or not, I am . . .
Whenever I heard "Yoga Every Damn Day" I always thought two things: Oh coooool, you're such a badass that does yoga every single day. Is it really GOOD to do yoga every day? Don't you get sore? Don't you need some rest? But going through teacher training has totally opened my eyes to a new viewpoint. Yoga and praticing yoga has a whole new meaning for me. Yoga means unity. Unity of self with higher self. Unity of your body and mind. Unity of breath to movement. Yoga helps . . .
Heyyyy, friends! Happy Saturday! My day started perfectly with the sweetest puppy cuddles. In case you don't follow me on social media, I am obsessed with my roommate's dog, Gus. He is the cutest -- barely ever barks, is a great fetch player, and and gives nearly human-like hugs. I was up a little earlier than I expected to be, so I decided to join a yoga teacher training friend for yoga at the park! My knee is feeling a little bit better, and stretching helps a ton, so I figured I'd . . .

Hey everyone! I'm currently at my parents house again because they have power! There were HUGE storms last night with over 60 mph winds, and it took down trees and power lines all over the city. It was nuts! There are huge tree branches all over yards and roads. photo via I had just picked up my parents at the airport, so we went out to dinner at Bar Louie. It wasn't our first choice but the restaurants were PACKED and had huge waits. My fish tacos were really good!! Then I went back . . .
Current Mood: hoping I can squeeze in a few beach days in Hilton Head before my summer is over! tank || dress || bikini || sandals || bag || sun hat || sunglasses || beach towel || pillow || chair || umbrella How did summer fly by so fast!? I had ALL these plans of things to get done and now suddenly I've only got a few weeks left before school starts again. I'm hoping I can push really hard on my work for the next two weeks and then use my final week for some (more - I've . . .
Heyyyyy y'all. What's up? Hows your week going? Mine is great - busy so far!! I'm helping prepare an anatomy presentation for my yoga teacher training and it's taking a lot of time. Good thing is I LOVE IT. It's great review for me, plus I get all nerdy excited about the body. It's actually turning out to be a fairly thorough yet simplified review of anatomy and physiology, so I'm considering sharing/selling/using it to teach others in the future as well. Last night my friend Nicole . . .
