I've been working for the medical offices of an animal shelter for 7 months now and I don't think I could ever tire of it. Aside from all the adorable puppies and kitties I see on a daily basis, I also just love the people I work with. It's always an interesting environment there and I think I just got really lucky to end up in such an awesome and giving place.
So Michael's parents decided to clean out their garage and have a yard sale a week ago. Little did we know, they were stashing some amazing records that they were just going to sell. Having gotten a record player for Christmas (thanks to Michael and his parents), we're always looking to expand our collection and added so many amazing classics like Thriller by Michael Jackson and three Pink Floyd albums! This is too awesome! We have two milk crates full of records now. (Milk crates, how badass is that? It's like we stole them or something. That's a "That '70s Show reference ;D)
At the end of the month, Michael and I are going to California for Labor Day weekend to visit family and friends. I could not be more excited! During Labor Day weekend, my hometown of Orange has, what they like to call, The International Street Fair. They close down Old Towne Orange and sell food from all over the world and we drink beer and rita's (short for Margaritas) and just have a good time. So I'm looking forward to that and eating In N Out and other delicious SoCal food!
I'm just obsessed with it at this point. I go at least 5 days a week and today I ran 4.3 miles along the water. It is the best stress reliever and I feel amazing! I'm in my second month of running so far and I'm pretty proud of how consistent I've been with it. And the other day, Michael told me he was proud of me for sticking with it too. It really made me feel good to hear him say that.
I also found a cool app called CharityMiles. It tracks how far you run and for every mile you run, corporate sponsors donate .25¢ to a charity of your choice. It doesn't seem like a lot but every little bit counts! And doesn't it make you feel good to give even the littlest bit instead of nothing?
