We’re back with a fall update! Technically, we’re only a few days shy of being in the winter season, but I am officially six months into my lease and, as promised, I wanted to give y’all an update. As much as I want to say, “I can’t believe it’s been six months,” it has definitely felt that long. But, of course, not for negative reasons related to the house or my living partner…entirely. 🙂Continue reading “Fall in the House”
Exciting news! If you watched my most recent video, then you will have found out that I’ve decided to increase the number of videos I’m putting out this month. I decided halfway through filming this week’s video, so that lets you know that I do not have pre-planned content. While I did have a few things on my calendar already that I knew would make this month’s videos more exciting, this is going to be a challenge for me to create content at a faster turnover rate. It’s not quite a vlogmas, but maybe a Christmas special! 🙂Continue reading “Going the Extra Mile”
I think we can all collectively agree that the last thing on our minds is a New Year’s Resolution. Although I’ve already caught glimpses of morning news broadcasts talking about losing quarantine weight, I like to think most of us are fully aware that COVID-19 doesn’t expire at midnight on New Year’s Eve. Though it is exciting to have almost-certainty that an effective vaccine is coming our way in 2021, I know I’ve learned my lesson about great expectations. I certainly don’t think there’s anything wrong with goal-setting as I have been making vision boards for the past two years and may even do one next month; however, I don’t have to be the one to discuss the harmful effects of setting overly ambitious goals at the beginning of the year and falling into a pit of self-pity three weeks later.Continue reading “#goals”
If you have been keeping up with my YouTube channel, you may have seen my vlog of how I spent my August. It was during this month that I started to think more about how I can make the most out of my time since we will be in this for the long haul. I wrote a post reflecting on quarantine as one does after realizing it’s been six full months (now 10 months), and I talked about the weird tug-of-war of wanting to live life to the fullest but not knowing what that looks like during a pandemic. Even though there are certain things I am not interested in or don’t feel safe doing, I know it is impossible to find 100% enjoyment from being in the house 24/7. So, I have researched some socially-distanced and mostly free things to do here in Dallas:
- Dallas Museum of Art (Downtown)
I am a museum person through and through and I think it has been amazing that so many of the most coveted museums around the world have managed to make their exhibitions virtual. Dallas Museum of Art (DMA) is one of my favorite art museums and it re-opened in August to limited capacity, hours, and days of operation. Knowing how easy it is to socially distance yourself in a museum, I decided to check it out and see how this experience has been updated. Masks are required, there is only one entrance and exit out of the museum, and the check-in process for ticketing is completely contactless as tickets have to be reserved online in advance for a specific time slot. General admission is free, but you have to pay for special exhibitions.
