Y’all. Am I the only one who doesn’t have a set workout routine? When I think of exercise, I don’t imagine a planned list neatly organized in sets of reps. If I tried to workout that way, I would give up after a week. Hour long pilates videos and weight-lifting have never worked out for me. Instead, I like to think of working out as a set of activities that I enjoy doing throughout the day. Everyday.
Normal. The idea
pushes you forward,
stains your tongue
red. Normal proceeds to
get stuck in hyperspeed
and see its way
“When nothing is certain, everything is possible.”
The year of 2020 is an eventful one to say the least. The intensity, the chaos, the bizarre changes in the society, which at times feels surreal, resembling an apocalyptic movie more than the reality. According to many ancient texts, however, there is a bigger picture at play, something that has been gaining its momentum since 2012, namely the end of one age and the beginning of another. Everyone remembers the “end of the world” prediction connected to Mayan calendar, apparently it was not supposed to be taken literally, and meant the end of the world as we know it.
It's only November. Trust me, I know. But with the way 2020 is going, I think we're all ready for a fresh start. A new year is the absolute perfect time to reflect, learn, and change old habits.
The Perfect Pairing
Most people pair their fancy wines with some delicious food and take pictures for their twitter accounts or something of that nature. However, us normal people are wearing sweatpants, at home with a huge glass of cheap wine, and tuning into Netflix or in my case podcasts. More specifically, murder podcasts because who doesn't like a good murder story? I know I do, especially the creepy heinous ones. No one can seem to explain why murder documentaries are so addictive but we all know secretly its our guilty pleasure, and wine too. Therefore, the perfect-sweet yet affordable-pairing is undoubtedly Barefoot Red Moscato wine, and a good gruesome murder podcast.
With the holidays around the corner, I decided this year to purposely make these the most memorable holidays I possibly can for my children and I. My boys are starting to get to the age where they will start remembering traditions and make memories to share with their families as they get older and have kids of their own.
