Life/blog update!!

Hello everyone!!

I’m so so sorry I’ve been away! I just made a post about wanting to be more open and then I disappeared. 😦 No bueno! I’ve been super busy in lab (woo!) and with some new hobbies that I’ve been picking up recently. 😀 I don’t know why I haven’t been blogging about that stuff, I really should! In the meantime, I wanted to quickly share some of the stuff I’ve been up to…

WRITING

I’ve recently started trying to write more! One of the things I miiiight want to do in the future is science writing, so I decided that I need to get comfortable with my writing ASAP! I signed up for daily writing prompts from Sarah Selecky’s blog and they have been soooo helpful. I have prompts emailed right to me every morning, and I try to spend 10 minutes near the start of my day writing a little story in my journal. Some days I don’t have time, and some days I don’t feel super inspired and can’t bring myself to write the full 10 minutes, but I still really love it. It’s a nice little morning ritual! I’ve discovered that I tend to make Stephen King-esque horror stories a lot. Hah! And I’ve been very aware of what I both like and don’t like about my writing. I would totally recommend signing up for the daily prompts if you want to write more, it’s super fun!

YOGA

I freaking love doing yoga, but I’ve been practicing pretty consistently for the past few years. I found a YouTube-instructor who I really love (Yoga With Adriene!) and who I would recommend to everyone! I’ve been doing her 30 Days of Yoga Challenge–I already finished it once, and I started again on May 1st. I already feel so much stronger, more confident, and more centered, so I’m excited for what the second month will bring! The first time I had a few 1-2 day gaps, my goal this time is to finish by the end of May. So I only have one day of wiggle room! Wish me luck!

Neon shirts and pretty mats make yoga better.

PLANNING AND LISTING

I recently got a super fancy planner! *heart eyes* I got one from Plum Paper Designs, and one from Erin Condren that I use in lab and don’t really spruce up a lot, hah. I have been posting about it a LOT on my Instagram, so, you know, you should follow me. 😉 If you want. No pressure.

In addition to my planners, I’ve been doing list challenges! Basically you’re given a prompt for every day and you make a little scrapbook page for it. I love it! It’s been so much fun. It’s been so nice to get my creative juices flowing in such a productive way!

ANYWAY, that’s what I’ve been up to lately! I’ve been a lot more active on Instagram then over here lately, so you should totally follow me over there too. 😀 And I’ll try to commit to posting more here, too!

Much love,
Allie
