Thinking of the lavender mocha I'm going to treat myself to from @cure_eats after lab today to get me through my Monday. . It would be just my luck that I find the BEST coffee drink I've possibly ever had (even over Starbucks' peppermint mocha) just a few weeks before we move to Texas. I'm going to figure out how to make myself one of these, because they're the perfect fuel for working on manuscripts or reading research articles.
Finally getting back into this blogging thing, but this time on my personal blog (yes, I know the name Living a Psyched Life is cheesy, but I don't care). I'll be posting more on this personal blog as I continue to make the transition to making photography more personal for me! . Today on the blog you can read all about our day trip to the Outer Banks on Easter weekend, plus see some really cute pictures of Roscoe. You don't want to miss it! Also, who else thinks this picture of me and Roscoe needs to be made into a big print/canvas for my home office once we get to Texas?! #linkinprofile
I don't know about you, but this Monday has me feeling a lot like this little squirrel running away. Between a psychology conference in DC on Friday/Saturday (which was SUPER fun) and packing most of the day yesterday, I could use some extra rest! . Tiredness aside, what are your goals for this week? I have a huge pile of research articles to get through plus a poster and some papers to work on. Not to mention packing, which I can't WAIT to be done with. . PS. I had never seen a black squirrel before so seeing this one in DC was actually really exciting for me. Kind of feel sorry for my lab mate who was with me when I stood there like an idiot taking pictures of a squirrel though 😂And yes, I did manage to get a couple that actually show the squirrel's face.
Well, the packing has started here. Let me tell you, moving is HARD. This next month is going to be pure craziness between packing, having fun spending time with friends, and getting ready for my parents to visit for graduation but it's also going to be so worth it! I can't believe that next month we'll be living in Texas for the next 4+ years and I'll be starting work with my mentor at my top choice school. A year ago I never would have expected any of this, and now it's time to start!
I had a TON of fun this week getting to take pictures with my friend @bhais9510 for her blog! . Bri and I met through the psychology program at ODU and connected over everything we were doing in the psychology program (hello, honors thesis!) and how similar we are as people. This is one of those friendships that's going to make it REALLY hard to say see you later when I move at the start of May, but I guess I have to go to Texas so we can have our Silos trip!
When I saw @juniperfoxx was getting a book, you can bet I pre-ordered it! My book arrived yesterday and I was SO excited that I read the whole thing last night. It did not disappoint! . My husband and I talk a lot about Juniper's owner because talk about an amazing human. Her love and dedication to animals is amazing and something everyone should aspire for. . PS. Swipe left to see what it's like taking these pictures with Roscoe 😂
Happy Monday! I don't know about you, but I definitely could have used some extra sleep this morning! But that's okay because here in a few hours, I'm off to campus to continue discussing getting my undergrad honors thesis data published. I still can't believe that I get to do this research I love for the rest of my life, and I have the feeling that this is going to be a good, productive week 👍🏻
Happy #nationalpuppyday to my favorite cuddle bug, study buddy, and Starbucks sharer. I couldn't have done these last few years without this little guy! Also yes, that is whipped cream by his one eye (puppuchinos get a little too exciting sometimes!)
