Well, hello. It's been a bit. To say the last few weeks have been stressful would be an understatement. While I've definitely had worse weeks in my life (I'm safe and healthy, as are my loved ones), these past few were filled with stress that was unexpected and unwarranted. Little things piled up quickly but I still had to keep going every day, as one does. While I'm still waiting for a few things to sort themselves out, for the last few days, I've been able to take a deep breath, reevaluate some goals, and catch up on sleep. Easing back into this blogging business with this week's ten things:

1 / An eclectic Los Angeles home.

2 / Single minded: the difference between being single and being alone.

3 / "I'm depressed and employed. How I make it work."

4 / Secrets of a celebrity stylist.

5 / Into high waisted everything lately.

6 / Thong underwear sucks. Couldn't agree more.

7 / Ruth Wilson is one of my favorites.

8 / Ranking the friendships on 'Grey's Anatomy'. Christina and Meredith forever.

9 / Teachers who deserve a gold star.

10 / Types of roommates: which are you? I'm quiet and tidy but always mysteriously stuck in my room.

It's been a while since I've had time (and inspiration) to update this space. In the past few months, I've finished my first year of nursing school (two semesters down, three to go) and started two new jobs. This week though, I've finally gotten a chance to breath and have spent the weekend in bed, watching "Mad Men", eating way too much unhealthy food, and am now making pasta al pomodoro. I'll ease back in with this week's ten things:

1 / Adoring this couple's Brooklyn apartment. And wanting to replace all my underwear with their brand Land of Women.

2 / "My husband and I sleep in separate bedrooms."

3 / Gwyneth Paltrow's Goop offices. That would make going to work every day easier.

4 / Stephanie Danler's Grub Street diet. If you haven't read Sweetbitter, I highly recommend it.

5 / 11 times 'Girls' really nailed it.

6 / Don't have it all figured out in your 20s? That's okay, and here's why.

7 / On the recommendation of a friend, I've been listening to this song on repeat.

8 / I just bought these jeans and I'm obsessed with them.

9 / This baby loves being "unwrapped".

10 / Hollywood "It Girls" through the years.

Have a great week.

Since spring break ended, I've been struggling with completing the semester. I'm happy to see April begin, meaning I'm that much closer to the end of the semester and warm weather. I'm definitely going to appreciate being outside and the pool a lot more this summer. Next week, I'm starting a new job, and am hoping to get back in the swing of things. Here are this week's ten things:

1 / Laura Dern's rustic Los Angeles home. Slightly in love.

2 / Mindy Kaling discusses the final season of "The Mindy Project".

3 / Jenny Slate and her year of living publicly. I love her.

4 / Examples of minimalist living.

5 / Recruiters' seven biggest job interview pet peeves.

6 / 'Ugh, I'm so busy': A status symbol for our time.

7 / The most perfect boots I'm completely lusting over.

8 / Seven bad habits and what they say about you.

9 / Charts for anyone trying to be better this month.

10 / Ellen Degeneres and Portia de Rossi's stunning Santa Barbara home.

Without fail, I'm constantly watching a TV show. I don't watch any shows while they're actually on TV, that requires too much patience, something I am severely lacking in. So I watch shows on Netflix or Amazon Prime, whose access I've stolen from my grandparents.

This week, I started watching The Newsroom on a whim (on HBO Now and Amazon Prime). In fact, I loved it so much, upon finishing (there are three seasons totaling 25 episodes), I immediately began watching again. The Newsroom is a political drama series chronicling the behind the scenes and events at the fictional Atlantic Cable News. Centered around Jeff Daniels as anchor Will McAvoy who, together with his executive producer Mackenzie McHale and staff, sets out to put on a news show "in the face of corporate and commercial obstacles and their own personal entanglements."

As this crazy world we live in just seems to get more and more unbelievable, I find myself thinking, "What would Will McAvoy think of all this?"
