i know this is ironic to choose ron swanson to express how i feel when i am out in nature, but, whatyagonnado
when we first step out of the car and i realize i am nowhere near civilization.
how i act once i am out in nature
and yep, that is pretty much how i feel about it. so if you want to remain friends with me, please refrain from asking me to go to nature. not gonna happen. let's just go to a movie instead. or paint our nails.
Tell us a little bit about what we will find on your blog. Life? Recipes? Fitness?
On Looking to the Stars you'll find all sorts of things! I love books and movies, so I'll write a lot about that. I've been on a health/fitness journey (probably since I started the blog two and a half years ago) and I'll write about that. I also talk about my family and friends. As I date and experience love I'll throw a little of that in as well. I have a link up that I host on Fridays called Friday Feelings. It's all about how YOU are feeling. I'm also a regular participant in the Write or Die Wednesday link up with The Chronicles of Chaos and Shelly's Cabaret. I love that link up, because it gives me inspiration to write. I want to be a writer (fiction/prose/screenplays) and #WODW started a Writer's Book Club and I joined that. I'm also in another book club that Chronicles started on Goodreads. I really like books :)
If you could have dinner with anyone in the world, dead or alive, who would it be?
Oh gosh, this is a tough one. I actually did a similar post with Write or Die Wednesdays and chose Gene Kelly, but I think I'll change my answer. If I could have dinner with anyone, dead or alive, I would pick Oprah. I think she is pretty fantastic. She gives great advice and there are some things that I could really use some advice on right now (relationship stuff). Plus she's an avid reader and I'd love to discuss books with her.
Describe your perfect Saturday
Wake up at 7:30am (this is sleeping in for me) and have a lovely light breakfast. Probably scrambled eggs, an English Muffin, and some fruit.
Yoga at 9am and my women's group at 10:30am
I'll probably putz around town for a bit and hit up Target and TJ Maxx
I'll eventually get home to shower and get feeling pretty. Lounging around the apartment and watching some Hulu is important for a Saturday. I might even sit out on my patio (weather pending) and reading a little bit.
I'd love to get dinner and catch a movie in the evening. There's nothing quite like a movie theater experience.
Depending on what time I get home I'll usually try to read before going to sleep. Writing in my Gratitude journal is also something I have started to do.
I'm all about hitting the hay early and sleeping in (just a little bit) on Sunday.
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be? Or, what is your favorite place you have traveled to?
I haven't been anywhere, really. I went to Canada once and then the Bahamas twice. Other that that I've stayed pretty inland in the USA. So, if I could travel ANYWHERE I would definitely want to go to England, Ireland, France, and Italy. I also want to go to Australia one day. England is my #1 place to visit! The countryside, high tea, the accent, Big Ben, Jane Austen, castles, Shakespeare! I love the idea of London!
If you could give advice to your younger self, what would it be?
Trust Your Gut and Be True To Yourself. About a year ago I was struggling with some stuff and I was having a hard time listening to my inner voice. I was trying to be the person that everyone else wanted me to be. So, as a reminder, I got a tattoo of To Thine Own Self Be True on my back. It's in script and all girly with stars and swirls. It's a reminder to be true to who I am and what I want for my life. I think that is so important. You have to put yourself first and love yourself before you can love anyone else.
thanks erica! happy humpday!
