[Thankful Thursday]


Umm, how is it Thursday already? So many things have happened in the past week, I lose track of time, and how much I have scheduled for the weeks to come!

1. Yoga. In the final year of my PhD, yoga was one of my saving graces. It was the only hour of the day where I didn’t think of my PhD at all. Instead, I was busy thinking about how I couldn’t feel my thighs from holding crescent lunge for (what seemed to be) 10,000 breaths. After falling off the yoga wagon, I want to get back into it, and went to a core power session on Tuesday. Let’s just say that it was intense, and I still have tender glutes. Looking forward to some quick daily yoga practice though!

[eating out]: Bites by D (Mt. Hawthorn)


I have come to realise that Mt. Hawthorn is one of the most inconvenient places for me to get to. I like direct routes to places, and Mt Hawthorn is the complete opposite. There’s not one road I can go along then easily turn off and reach the place. Instead, I have to turn onto another main road from the freeway then another one, then some small streets. Who else finds these kinds of routes annoying?

Anyway! I digress. After a few weeks of planning and a long email thread, it was finally time for my friend’s (CT) high tea at Bites by D! (In case you didn’t know already, they have really pretty cakes).

[Thankful Thursday]

My, what a whirwind of a week it has been! Whilst most days were generally quiet and relatively slow, it seemed like things were paused to bombard me all at once! Some days it felt like time wasn’t passing at all, but other days zoomed by before I realised. Nevertheless, even in the ‘busy-ness’ of our lives, there is always something to be thankful for in our daily lives.

1. Warmer weather: Funnily enough, a blood test a month ago actually showed I had depleted Vitamin D levels. I’ve never had that before and it’s hilarious because I was just lamenting to my GP that I am so sick of the cool weather. Well, it seems God has heard my complaints and blessed us with beautiful warmer weather!  I’m not a summer person at all, and I always complain about the heat, but I am SO looking forward to getting some colour to my pasty legs! haha.

2. New opportunities: I had to make a somewhat difficult decision a few weeks ago. After some discussion with my besties, I decided to take the leap and boy am I glad I did! As that door closed, another one opened with more potential for my future. I’m looking forward to seeing what this brings me for the remainder of the year, and hopefully the next!

Thanks for reading! ^^ Can’t wait to see what this coming week brings!
