What I'm doing NOW

What I'm working on

Watching movies without skipping

Finally, I watched a few movies without skipping forward or jumping between scenes. On the side, I realized how much I am a Lady Bird - obviously, I've experienced everything Lady Bird has done in the movie, more or less. This is a test to my patience.  

Reimagine my work

Recently my boss has reminded me how much I could do at my job. It sounds shocking to me because I've never had so much liberty and control over what I can do to make a difference to a business. Now, it's about time to dream big at work.

What I'm learning

Painting

My mother's watercolor and acrylic collection would be a waste if I don't start painting. So, I did! So far I've had a lot of fun, and it takes up my time and makes me feel much cozier in my house. 

Spanish

I am trying to take my learning to the next level these days by doing some online live classes with a profesora from Bogotá, Colombia. I'm super happy to have her as my teacher because we can talk about a variety of topics. So, it's a little sad that I have to find a new teacher soon since she's not teaching after September anymore. 

What I'm reading

Option B by Sheryl Sandberg

Facing adversity, building resilience, finding joy. Sheryl Sandberg and Adam Grant worked together to write this book, and I understand how strong one has to be to write down their deepest grief and related thoughts. 

David and Goliath by Malcolm Gladwell

Reading Malcolm Gladwell is a cross-training for my brain. He always structures his argument and thesis so logically, that I can follow with ease. Although, I'm getting a little lazy with my reading these days; I would rather listen to a playlist of reggaeton than actually sitting down and reading.
