#Weekend Coffee Share–Keeping Busy, Looking to the Future

If we were having coffee, I’d start off with asking how YOU are, since it’s been so long since I’ve joined the coffee share. I’d pry a little bit into your life and we might exchange a hug, if you’re the type of person who likes to exchange hugs.

If we were having coffee, I’d talk about how good it feels to be home, how I miss Thailand dearly, but how I know I made the right choice in coming back to the States earlier than anticipated. I’ve spent the last few weeks spending time with family and friends and catching up on some much needed sleep, which was very much lacking in my life during the month that I was traveling in Europe and Thailand.

If we were having coffee, I’d talking about how I’ve spent much of this week checking job postings and writing cover letters and updating my resume. It’s been nice to have this time back at home with my family. It’s been nice to relax and not having to worry about much in terms of responsibility…but I’d also talk about how ready I am to move on with my life. How I, in fact, crave more responsibility and look forward to having a bit more independence when I am living on my own. I’m more than ready to pick up my things and move to Washington D.C., which is what I’m looking to do now that I’m back Stateside.

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you about the major changes happening on my blog. I have a completely new look and color scheme, and I’m so pleased with how it’s turning out. I never really liked the most recent look my blog had, but was busy living in Thailand and traveling and also couldn’t find a theme I was really happy with. The theme I’m using now is brand new to WordPress and, overall, I’m super thrilled with it. It’s here to stay for a while and, once I’m done clearing up the finer details, intend to write a more in-depth post about my thought process with the change and where I see my blog going in the future.

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you about seeing Paul McCartney in concert. It was definitely this week’s highlight and it was a very last minute thing. My mom acquired the tickets the day of the concert from a coworker who ended up not being able to attend that night. It was a fabulous show. Sir Paul may be 73, but he still knows how to rock. It was so cool to see one of the original Beatles perform the songs I grew up listening to in person. My mom is a major Beatles fan, too, so we had a great time together. The concert was a last minute surprise and so worth it.

If we were having coffee, I’d be about ready to switch it off to you–and I’d ask you, do you have anything to share over coffee?

    1. Thanks so much! I have enjoyed what I’ve seen of your blog, too.

      Ah yes, it was an amazing experience. Maybe one day you will. Who knows how long he’ll keep performing–he seemed to have quite a lot of energy at the concert.

  1. I’ve spent a lot of time this week as well looking for jobs and writing cover letters. Looking for a job is literally a job in itself lol. Thanks for sharing Britta!

  2. Your blog looks great, Britta! I’m going to spend some time in a couple of weeks (after grading 93 final exams) changing my theme, etc. Paul is coming to our area in the Fall but it just sold out. You are a lucky duck! I read the happiness in your words, Britta. Nice to have you back in the states and to read about your next journey!! Thanks for the coffee 🙂

    1. Thanks Terri! Good luck with grading. I can relate to the rush of getting exams graded, after teaching in Thailand. 🙂
      Ah, yes, it was such a fantastic experience. I am rather lucky, considering I had no plans to go initially.
      Glad you enjoyed catching up, Terri. I’ll have to stop by your blog soon. It’s been a while since I’ve made an appearance there!
