HAPPY VALEN..TUES..DAY

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY! And if you don’t celebrate the commercial day of love, um, happy Tuesday? Or, best of both worlds, Happy Valen..Tues..Day. Heh heh. I’m not funny, but these cards from Emily McDowell are.. I’m currently desk-warming and spent three consecutive hours catching up on the latest season of ANTM. A few notes: I need a new wardrobe, specifically cute crop tops and bralettes because all of the contestants wear them in each episode and they look fly AF.  Rita Ora and I need to be BFF’s. I appreciate that the show is focusing on branding these models by incorporating their business and social media skills and not just producing a pretty face. #slay Beyonce’s Lemonade album is currently blasting in my ears, and I’m trying to kill another couple hours until I can escape from this desk. TBH, I have no game plan when I started writing this blog post so I’m going to go ahead and do a stream of consciousness. It’s V-Day today, and throughout the week I drafted two posts about love and relationships but trashed both because …

5 DATING TIPS TO CONSIDER OR WHATEVER

Valentine’s Day is approaching and whether you’re a bitter Betty or look forward to receiving edible underwear from your last minute desperate-times-calls-for-desperate-measures Tinder date, the commercial day of love is going to happen, whether you like it or not. It’s been awhile since I’ve written an advice post and thought I’d give my five cents when it comes to love and relationships. First thing you should know, never come to me for dating advice. You’re probably wondering, why the heck am I reading this post then? I don’t know, you chose to be here (I’m thankful for it, love you, please don’t leave me). When it comes to sage advice, I provide insight when it comes to how to sweet talk your way to floor seats at a concert, how to use chopsticks without offending your ancestors, and (my specialty) how to look like you have your life together when you really do not.. but when it comes to “Jessica what should I do if the guy I met on Tinder who I’ve been ‘seeing’ for two months isn’t returning …

WHAT I DID ON VALENTINE’S DAY

I know you curious kittens are wondering what I did on the day of love, and I’m going to tell you in bullet points because, list formats are just how my brain works sometimes. What I did on Valentine’s Day: – Woke up. Freezing. I mean, look at my view right now. Everything is frozen. #ExtremeWeatherWarning #ElsaWasHere – Had breakfast. Frosted Mini-Wheats to be exact. With orange juice. – Went to soccer. Learned “more” and “learn” in sign language. I recently started coaching all-abilities soccer (kids and teens under 15) and before each practice we learn 2-3 signs since some of our athletes are unable to communicate verbally. It’s pretty cool, and the athletes are awesome. After practice the organization handed out VDay themed stamps, stickers and pencils for the kids but, I obviously partook. – Went to Tim’s and grabbed a coffee. Won a FREE coffee from Roll-Up-The-Rim. – Drove home, took a shower. – I don’t know whether it was because I had a busy week, lack of sleep or the weather being miserable (-40C to …
