Okay you guys. So I dunno what is happening with me this year but I can’t get into ANYTHING. We are well into the World Cup and usually I’m excited about major sporting events like the WC, but I barely made it through one game. Some friends have said, “It’s cause the US isn’t in there”, but that really has nothing to do with it. I thought I would snap to when Wimbledon started but for the first time probably EVER, I had to google, yes GOOGLE, whether or not Serena Williams won her match on Wednesday. Um, what?! No, I haven’t been busy doing other things. My mind has been everything but. So let me fill you in on what’s going on and what’s coming up.
Okay. So, first and foremost, I have been doing some teacher work over the summer. I have been revising and writing curriculum for secondary English teachers for the district I work for, so that has taken up some time – and been a little stressful, but that’s beside the point. While I had been looking forward to a work-free summer break, I wouldn’t be me if I literally had nothing to do for two months. In addition to teacher stuff, I have tabled my thesis and opted to take a capstone course in the fall to finish off my graduate studies. In order to do that, I am having to do some prep work until then. Mainly, just some extra reading, but we all know this ain’t no beach read. It’s a little tedious. But there’s some good stuff coming up.
If you remember, back in February I attended the Create & Cultivate conference in LA. Well, C&C is having a Style Summit here in Houston – so I will be in attendance. It is a free event – you just need to RSVP – so if you are here in the Houston area, check it out! The summit is July 21st at the Galleria in the Saks wing. Say hi if you see me!
Shortly after the style summit, I am headed back to New York towards the end of the month (my usual trip) and will be hitting of course Yankee Stadium a couple of times. I am sitting in two different areas of the stadium, so be on the lookout for a post on those game day experiences.
At the end of August I’m headed to Chicago or the first time for the Create & Cultivate Chicago conference (can you tell I love C&C?!) and I’m headed to Wrigley Field to see the Cubs take on the Reds!
I’m really excited about what’s to come over the next couple of weeks. It’s going to be fun and I’ll be sharing all the good stuff over on Instagram so you got to remember to follow me @thegamedaystylist
