Inspiration

It’s Friday! WOOT! I love Friday!

Hope everyone is as excited for the weekend as I am!!!!

Anyways, I’ve been dying to make an inspiration board but I hate cutting and pasting magazine pictures so I decided to do one in my sketchbook program on my mac.

So without any further ado, my inspiration…

I always love the concept because I believe that seeing your goals visually on a daily basis is a better reminder of the task at hand then say a word document with what you want to do with your life.

Anyone else love the idea of the inspiration board?!

Back to work…Happy Friday!!!

I don’t know what to write…

besides the fact that I’m really excited for Friday for two reasons.

1. it’s the start of my weekend

and 

2. I’m going to try out a spin class here! They’re about 30 mins away from home and 20 minutes from work, so I decided that it’s probably easier to go from work.

This Friday this having a movies music themed class, i’m totally stoked for it!

This is the place. They’ve got these awesome combo classes, where you do 45 minutes of spin, then 30 or 45 minutes of yoga, a weight class, a barre class…I ❤ the variety I just hate that it’s so far from home!

I’ll definitely post a review on Friday!!

Do you ❤ spin classes like I do?

This whole daylight savings thing is cramping my style..

I woke up and looked at my clock, it said 7:04..I closed my eyes and said i’ll sleep another hour….

welp an hour and a half later it was 9:30 am….damn you daylight savings.

My Mom and I had plans to visit this little breakfast place I heard about on Yelp. I felt so tired and my mom was totally surprised by the time too that we decided to try next week and stay in today.

We watched some Housewives of Miami, some Designed to Sell, some other HGTV shows and it was already 3pm! ugh.

I decided I wasn’t going to do much today so I decided to watch “9” on HBO on demand.

 

I remember seeing trailers in the movies and I was like I have to see this…i’m quite a nerd when it comes to post-apocalypitc movies, not like scary ones, but somewhat realistic ones. aka I cannot wait for The Hunger Games

Anyways the movie was fantastic…I highly suggest you rent it.

I continued my day of laziness with my dogs and finally bit in to my petite treat from Starbucks.

I got the Birthday Cake Pop, and even after a day I took a bite and the cake was amazingly delicious, it was not in the least bit dry. It really reminded me of funfetti.

Even Lula wanted a bite!

Welp it’s time for me to repaint my nails, pick an outfit out for tomorrow and continue watch the West Wing..

byeeee

Traffic Jams

For those of you who sit in traffic to get to work, you know how crucial it is to make sure you’re entertained in your car, especially if you had a long day at work and all you want to do is get home.

Fortunately for me I have xm and an auxillary cord for my iPod.

Today I bring you my thoughts on the jams that will hopefully make you smile and maybe a bit nostalgic on your ride home.

I must tell you…I searched iTunes with words like car, drive, ride. I figured there’d be some songs out there that might have been inspired by traffic on a highway…

So here they are!

Calm the road rage with these tunes and before you know it you’ll be home!

Any particular song(s) calm you during traffic or long drives?

Google It

Do you ever look to a friend or a family member who you think is tech savvy?

I have some exciting news…

YOU could be that tech savvy person with a little practice.

My family comes to me all the time, sometimes it’s simple and sometimes it’s tricky…

Once upon a time when I was a teenager and wasn’t sure what the solution was I’d get all annoyed and just tell them I had no clue and stomp off. Now (with the occasional stomping) I google their problem and find a solution. It’s that easy! 

The point of this post is to share the wealth. Google is a wealth of information, you just need to know what to search.

For example, my dad and I didn’t know how to right click on an iPad. Go to Google‘s search and type in “How to right click on iPad”.

Viola! Tons of links on how to master that skill.

Another place I go to for social media development is Mashable.com, probably the best source for up to date info on the latest social media and how to enhance your presence on the web.

Don’t forget blogs! They’re the best place to get first hand accounts on issues with computers, social media confusion or internet tips and tricks. I visit KatyWidrick.comJulia Roy or David Carr just to name a few!

Day after day we see new ventures with social media sites, new tricks to optimize your internet search, and of course new techie gadgets. If you want to keep up with the times you need to start googling and finding answers, you need to research and learn about these new things, test out techniques for yourself…

I can’t guarantee you’ll be a coding genius like Mark Zuckerberg but i’m fairly certain you could be a Google Guru and/or a Social Media Savant

Happy Googling!!
