Monday Musings | March Week 2

Personal Blog post II Copy.jpg

Hey it’s Monday again! So that means it’s another Monday musings!! Let’s get through those Monday blues together, shall we?

Look on the bright side:

  • It’s not raining today! Or isn’t supposed to be. (Good thing, cause I have an engagement session later in San Francisco)

  • Due to daylight savings & “springing forward” we have more daylight - yay! Enjoy that sunshine people!

  • I had the pleasure of taking event photographs over at SC30 and SOL Development was one of the honored guests and performers. There was a fireside chat before their live performance, and oh my - inspiring. If you haven’t yet checked out SC30 in Old Oakland (yes, it’s Steph Curry’s - SC - pop up shop but it’s much more than that. It’s much more closer to a community space and safe space for Oakland youth. Go check it out if you haven’t. They’re only open Fridays - Sundays and on Warrior home games - you can watch free at their large screen tv set up!) Anyhoo - one big takeaway from SOL Development is

    • “It’s not about being perfect, it’s about being present” - Karega Bailey

    • They spoke a lot about space and making room for others, to be heard, to be seen, to be able to hold space - and a great question asked: “how do we create the conditions for others’ light to shine” How do we help provide space to allow those in the margins to be heard, seen, felt and included? SOL development stands for Source of Light…. go check them out if you haven’t yet heard of them. They are an amazing talent and force. So inspiring.

  • Gas prices are under 3.00 again - ok, it’s $2.99 but still (unless you need to pump premium gas)

  • I can’t wait for this IKEA collection to hit stores (in May UGH)

  • I can’t wait for this series to hit Amazon Prime (along with a few other new seasons to hit online streaming as well - this and I really hope there is another season of this one)

  • Someone please buy this #Aframe home for me? Or make it your dream A-frame home. If you don’t know by now - I’m really into A-frame homes and cabins! Cabins in general.

  • If you are in Oakland, are an entrepreneur or in a creative field and want some awesome like minded folks to hang out with - come to the Oakland’s Tuesdays Together meetup at Ghost Town Brewing starting at 5pm for our March meetup and #tacotuesdays and a creative happy hour. We’ll be talking about Pinterest and how to use it with your business AND we’ll also just chill and hang out and keep each other company and accountable.

How are you getting through your Monday? Here are a couple of apps I use on the daily to start my day:

So tell me - what’s on your mind, on your list??!!! Please share!
