Afternoon, everyone! I’m still enjoying my time here in Oklahoma City, and all day I’ve had all kinds of thoughts I knew I wanted to share with you. I had so much fun doing my random ramblings post last week that I thought I’d give you guys another glimpse into my thought process today!
1. I caught the movie Elizabethtown on TV last night. I love this movie! Do you recognize the quote in my title?
2. I would truly love to live in a walking city. I have no desire to live in one where you have to drive everywhere, but there’s something about a city like New York or Washington D.C. where you can get everywhere on foot or by public transit. Now, for the record, Oklahoma City is not like that. However, I get to pretend like it is while I’m here because everywhere I go is within walking distance!
3. I woke up in the middle of the night to a pretty bad pain in my knee. When I woke up this morning, I didn’t notice it and thought I’d imagined it. However, it was back with a venegance by this afternoon. I suffer from runner’s knee (ironic since I’m not technically a runner!), and it bothers me when I overdo exercise. Looks like I’ll be sticking to lower impact workouts for the rest of the week.
4. I finally picked this book back up after putting it aside when I got into that Stephanie Plum book. I love it! Reading books like ignites a fierce desire to get out on the trail, and I just hope someday I can do a long thru-hike. Definitely my number 1 dream!
5. You all may have noticed my new button the side. I’m participating in Courtney’s yoga challenge this month. This morning before I had to be at the conference, I spent sometime with Jillian. It was so much harder than I expected yoga to be, but I can’t wait to do it again!
6. Have you guys ever noticed how much technology thoroughly consumes out lives? I looked around at the three hundred or so people sitting in the conference all before the keynote speaker this morning, and I bet 90% of them had a tablet, laptop, or smartphone they were playing away on. Granted, I am at a technology conference, but I can’t help but feel it wouldn’t be much different anywhere else. I felt a little out of touch-I was the only one sitting there with a book
7. Last, I need all of you to excuse me as I end the post here. There’s a Whole Foods in this city, and I’m going to find it!
Any small-town people out there who would like to live in a big city? What about city people who wouldn’t mind a rural area?
