I moved to London at the end of 2018 and have finally found my place. The neighbourhood that speaks to me. Whose cobbled lanes call out my name. Hampstead is the cutest little village in London. It’s far superior to Notting Hill. Maybe it’s what Notting Hill used to be before the movie “Notting Hill”. No fear of such a thing happening following the 2017 romcom, “Hampstead” that just popped up on Netflix. It is by all accounts a terrible movie despite the fact that it features both Diane Keaton and Brendan Gleeson. But it’s a good thing that it is such a bad movie, because I don’t want anyone to know about Hampstead.Continue reading
Denver is trending. It was probably always great but only now have people started to take notice. And when I say people, I mean me, because I’m usually a few years behind the trends. I get it now though. The sun is always shining, the mountains are all around you, and there’s a distinct weirdness everywhere you look. Kind of like Austin or Portland. They are so weird that they don’t need to fight for the slogan “Make Denver Weird”. All this made for a great week-long visit to the Mile High City.
Some things cannot be written about. Some things cannot be expressed in a way that does them justice. Some things are just too wonderful to document. It has been two months since I returned from the most wonderful trip of my life and I have writer’s block! How is that possible? I have so many things to say, that I have nothing to say.
One of the huge perks about my job is that I get to work from home. It’s the reason Tommy and I have been able to move around as we please these last few years. However, there are both advantages and disadvantages to the lifestyle.
- Dress Code = Pajamas
- Commute = 3 seconds from bed to desk (slight traffic as puppies are running around)
- Morning Prep time = ranges from 2 – 15 minutes depending on if I have a video conference. (at some point we should talk about the enormous injustice of women having to wear makeup to look presentable)
- Disturbances are minimal – ever need to just GET SHIT DONE without people walking by and talking to you every 5 minutes?
- Office = Anywhere with internet!!! This is the real inspiration for the post because I like to sit in beautiful coffee shops. At the bottom of the post are a few of my favorites in Austin, TX.
