scenes from my weekend (and some thoughts)

ok...so I cheated! I posted two weekends in one.
both were verrrry nice, very relaxing. filled with flowers. and caffeine. and hockey playoffs.

- - -

So, unrelated to the above pictures...lately I am feeling like I need a little push in the right direction.
Should I focus on applying to grad schools? being irresponsible and traveling the world? 
volunteering my butt off in my current job? focusing on moving out and getting an apartment?
studying something that really interests me, like Italian? spending more time improving my artwork?
I can't decide which one I want to throw my all into. I find myself wanting to do it all,
but then I can't get really good at one thing.

So I am feeling a little direction-less. But grad school is a definite must for me sometime soon.
I really want to do something that gets me traveling again - but I worry that it will conflict with my job.
I want to study italian again, but I worry that I will never have the opportunity to use it.
The GREs terrify me, too. What if I don't get a good score? What if it takes multiple times?
I think that this is a great strength and flaw of mine, to always wonder what is next.
Because it propels me to keep moving...but there's that question that plagues me...what if?
Ok- this is a bit heavy for monday morning.
All in good time, all will fall into place - it always does.

some posts that have inspired me over the weekend (check them out!)

ciao, xo


  1. beautiful photos


  2. I feel the same way sometimes. I'm a year removed from college and am in my second post-grad internship, and I find myself constantly wondering what I do next. Say "screw it" and backpack through Europe until my money runs out? Send out a million applications until I get a full-time job? Reconsider grad school? But you're right -- everything eventually falls into place. :)

    1. I am here too. It's like 6 days away from my 1 year graduation anniversary. Like you, I am: full time job? grad school?

  3. I love what you are wearing behind that coffee, and the coffee doesn't look to bad either.

  4. beaautiful pictures. and you are right - all will fall into place. following back!

  6. I love that first picture! Totally know what you mean about feeling directionless. But somehow it does all work out in the end :) Keep on keepin' on!
