Hey y’all. I know … today is Wednesday.
Just a small detail. Delivering the 5 Things Tuesday in the middle of Wednesday afternoon. What can I say? Sometimes you just slack off and you can’t really beat yourself over it.
That is until you receive a Tweet the next day or something. Apparently people read this thing despite the lack of comments. It’s all good though. Here’s my day-late 5TT!
1 NIGHT OWL WAYS - I’ve learned to accept my night owl ways, but it’s hard trying to find the balance in between it all. Because I do sunrise shoots and early morning networking meetings, but it’s dreadful to peel myself out of bed for that when I most likely stayed up really late the night before.
I can’t help it though. I’m pretty useless throughout the day - granted I do things like visit people and watch TV and nap (like I did yesterday). But I can’t work until night. My brain doesn’t switch on until sometime past 8 PM.
Sigh. What can I do about that? I’m trying to regulate my time management and such. Still testing things out. I’ll keep you posted.
2 007 MOVIES + JESSIE SPANO + KATE BECKINSALE - This past weekend I had the opportunity to watch the new Bond movie with a bunch of my friends. That alone is great, just because I love their company but it gets better when one of them even dressed up for the occasion.
Say what you will about the movie (some liked it, some not so much) - I thoroughly enjoyed watching how handsome Daniel Craig was as Bond. Hmmmmmmyes.
In other random news, both Elizabeth Berkley (from Saved by the Bell) and Kate Beckinsale were in the same movie theater. They didn’t come together (they’re not like best friends or anything) but they were both there. I’m still not used to the fact that celebrities live here and that I may see them from time to time.
3 BEN CORNS IN CROSSROAD - Being in LA you get to meet a lot of aspiring actors. That just comes with the territory. But I live in West LA where we don’t have a lot of industry people - so technically Ben is the only one in our groups (all 3 West LA groups) who is a working actor. So last night we went to the premiere of his new movie. It’s a small Christian movie but still. He got to punch a guy in the face! And he wears a suit!
So a bunch of us dressed up and went to town. Watched the movie. Then hit up Happy Hour in Beverly Hills. Dude - $4 burgers and sweet potato fries! UM, YES.
Best people ever. Such a great night.
4 COFFEE & PEACEMAKING - In church, we’ve been slowly going through the Beattitudes and Sunday’s sermon was all about how blessed the peace makers are. Which is so timely for a coffee date I had with a friend.
For the past 3 months we’ve been at odds and his wife was tired of being our mediator. And after trying a Tuesday dinner last week that did NOT go well, we met for coffee to clear the air and reconcile our differences. Or just plainly agree to disagree. But to love instead.
Oh goodness. It was a hard meeting, but really needed. So yes - peace making is hard at times but it really is a blessing.
5 I NEED SOME GOOD BOOK RECOMMENDS - I just finished Sharpen Your Heels, a biz book for women. It wasn’t my favorite but it was still a good read. But now I need a new book to read.
Or maybe like 3 books. I need to stretch my brain a little. If you have any ideas on awesome reads, let me know! I think I may check out the nearby library. That sounds like a good idea … but I miss the way it was in Orlando when they would mail the books to you. Man, were we spoiled.
