As I mentioned earlier this week, I took a trip to the homeland and got to spend time with my wonderful parents and a couple of elementary school buds. When I returned, one of my favorite ladies from college was visiting NYC from London. We did happy hour, did lunch, went dancing with fabulous ladies, took shots of tequila (only one), and ate lots and lots of fro yo (it was really hot last weekend).

This week I got to spend a number of delightful dinners with my classmates (yea grad school!), including one that began at a Thai restaurant (Yum Yum….not sure which version), traveled to a bar for pumpkin beer ($5 special what whaaaaat) and ended with one of the most amazing pieces of theater I’ve seen since I moved to New York. Seriously, go see Sons of the Prophet at Roundabout. I say no more.

These are just some highlights of the glorious disregard for deadlines I’ve been reveling in lately. Yes, I have a marathon to run in a little over a month. Yes, I need to find a full time job soon. Yes, I’m in charge of making a huge event happen in early December. Yes, I have a flurry of school deadlines looming over the next few weeks. No, I haven’t accomplished as much as I should have on any of these things, but I haven’t been wasting any time. I’ve been taking good care of myself and my personal well being. I’ve been treating my relationships with the wonderful people in my life with all the care and time they deserve, and I’ve been enjoying every minute of my life. And you know what? I’m not behind on any of my big projects either. I still went on my long run on Saturday (which went great), I’ve gotten all my work done for this week’s deadlines, and that event is going to be awesome.
Work hard. Play hard. Love life.
Do you prioritize fun? How do you feel about missing a workout?
