Currently... (and Happy First Friday)

CurrentlyMegan WhitsonComment

Hi friends! Happy First Friday!

Two semesters ago in PT school, our class schedule worked out to where we didn’t have class on Friday’s so we (my classmates and professors) started calling Thursday our “First Friday” and it stuck! And makes me smile happily bc it reminds me of 62 wonderful, talented friends that are all across the country right now kicking ass on clinicals :)

 Pro tip: if you want to see beautiful men with their shirts off on the reg, go to PT school ;)

Anywho…how has your week been? Flying by? Dragging slowly and painfully? Whatever the answer…put a pep in your step bc tomorrow is the REAL Friday! I’m heading up to the mountains with some dear friends and my fella for a few days of hiking, farmer’s marketing, craft beer drinking, board game playing and yummy food eating - cannot wait! I think I am most excited about the 60’ weather YESSS. We are rocking a balmy 81’ today here in Beaufort with 1000% humidity. Needless to say, I am slightly ecstatic for some fall weather - even if only for a weekend.

Alright moving onto today’s post which will be a monthly (maybe weekly, we shall see) topic on what is going on “currently.” I’m borrowing this idea from Tracy at Shutterbean because I think everything she does is absolutely amaze-balls (I know I hate myself for using that word too. I am a closet frat bro apparently). I kind of want to be just like her when I grow up and I love her Currently posts. I actually started using the same format in my journal this year so I’m carrying it on over to the blog-o-sphere (God, sorry. My verbage is truly bro today and I can’t seem to stop it…must be those First Friday vibes).

Good Vibes Only

Folly Beach, SC

CURRENTLY …

INSPIRED BY: Strong women (check out this podcast episode with Sophia Bush - I want to be her best friend), men who support and respect strong women, my patients who keep fighting against incredibly odds — I am humbled to get to walk alongside them <3

WATCHING: Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown (RIP - still so sad over his loss), Ozark (Anyone else watching?? Jason Bateman is incredible!)

READING: The Throne of Glass series (Holy cow…I just finished this series a few weeks ago. I literally did nothing other than eat, sleep, go to work and READ for about 2 weeks while I flew through this book series. I have not been that obsessed with a series since Harry Potter. HIGHLY RECOMMEND)

THINKING ABOUT: Salt Lake City (where I will be in less than a month for my next rotation!), thinking of and sending prayers for those affected by the hurricanes recently, how to become more disciplined in my yoga practice (I have been soooo slack recently)

LISTENING TO: Podcasts like crazy recently - a few of my current favorites: Unspoken with Sean Brock, Joe Rogan with Morgan Fallon, Dr. Death (seriously terrifying) and Oprah with Pico Iyer (so inspiring); and I’ve had my YOGA playlist on repeat at night recently

DREAM LIFE: Crazy dreams recently - I’ve been taking 5-HTP to help me sleep and it is wonderful but it also gives me some super out there, lucid dreams; I’ll try to remember some of them to share next time ;)

GRATEFUL FOR: the opportunity to start this blog…it has seriously been a dream for a long time and I’m thankful for everyone who takes the time to read and comment. Thanks guys <3

 I will be on this porch looking at this view in less than 24 hours &lt;3

Questions…

Any Salt Lake City must see/do recommendations? Or recommendations of things to see/places to stop on the way out there?

What are you reading right now? What do you recommend?

What are your weekend plans?!
