I think I'm finally getting used to the schedule, though. So fun Ashley should be making an appearance once again (as opposed to workaholic, sleep-deprived Ashley).
Anyway, here are the few recreational(ish) activities I partook in.
The wee pup you see in this post is my friend's new dog! Her name is Bindi and she's adorable! Snapshots of Bindi:
Besides playing with puppies, my other recreational activities have involved feeding myself with indulgent foods...
The famed Sprinkles Cupcake. Yes, it's that good.
Coffee. I've been drinking copious amounts of coffee and am starting to believe the phrase above. So, I'm hearing voices???
Wine & Cheese night. I fully recommend the Stag's Leap Sirah. One of the best red wines I've had it a long, long time and from a winery featured in the movie Bottleshock.
Hoping to eventually find a good work/life balance in where I can fully embrace San Diego as home again. I really don't think I'm there yet. And maybe I'll never get there? The next few months will tell a lot; especially if I'm honest with myself.
It's difficult to explain it in words, but changing homes between two countries does a number on a person. I've tried my hardest to really embrace every moment, but I cannot ignore the fact that I've felt unsettled for the last 7 months of being back. At the end of the day, I've resolved to live a life completely true to myself and not everyone else's expectations. That's the best I can do for myself, I think.
And there I go turning a fluff post into something very introspective and over-analytical. Typical Ashley. Just had to unload all these thoughts!
