Sometimes it's the cliches that hit home with me the most {a letter}.

Why hello there Friday, it's very nice to see you.

Did you know that there are only 3 more of you until I'm Jobless?

And only 4 more of you until I'm homeless?

And only 7 more of you until I see you again in Spain?

Yeah. Think about that. I know I am.

This week hasn't been the easiest on my emotions, dear Friday, which is why I'm pretty excited to see you. It's like this week, Aunt Flo came to town x100. But let me tell you...That wasn't the case and I can't blame it on her.

Anyway...the important thing to remember here is that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

Things are really ramping up here for this life changing event!

I just placed my beloved Tiffany's jewelry on eBay last night and within hours, someone bid on it!

The Dizzle also honed in on his wonderful photography skills and put this bad boy on Craigslist. I have high hopes for it to sell soon, dear Friday!

Once this is gone, we're basically living in an empty apartment for the next few weeks.
But that's okay because we have a mattress in the living room (yeah, that still hasn't been moved), a laptop complete with Netflix, and some Fudgsicles in the freezer!

What more could we want, really?

I say this because, yesterday, The Dizzle sent me this article written by a 90-year-old man on 45 life lessons.

Some of them were super cliche like, "When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer." Or, "Life is too short not to enjoy it."

But you know what, Friday? Something about those uber cliche sayings made me feel better about this week. It made me focus on what's important right here and right now and to stop worrying about the small, insignificant things that were making me stressed or lose focus of the bigger picture.

Anyway, that's all, Friday. Glad to see you. Thanks for listening.




  1. I don't think I could do what you are doing. Selling all my jewelery and belongings? It would be so hard. But this whole experience is going to be so character building and worth it for you! Think about when you are 80 and telling your grandchildren that you sold all your stuff and slept on the floor for three weeks and then travelled the world. Crazy!

  2. If I had room for that table and chairs I'd take it in a heartbeat!

  3. I am still in awe of what you and the Dizzle are doing! I think it is absolutely one of the most amazing, and ballsiest (is that a word?) things to do. It's definitely encouraging me to throw caution to the wind and actually accomplish the things I have dreamt about doing for years now! SO EXCITED FOR YOU!

  4. you're so crazy (in such a good way) for doing what you're doing. It'll be the best adventure of your life.

  5. I am soooooooooooooooo happy for you both!! this is going to be an amazing experience of a lifetime. i cant wait for your updates!!!

  6. This will be so rewarding! I don't think I'd be able to sell everything and go off & travel (ok maybe I would if I had such a studly boyfriend to do it with..)

    But seriously - Tiffany's, cars, purses, dining room sets will always be waiting for you, but you will only be 26 ONCE! There's no better time!

  7. When you put Fridays that like, they seem even better. Here's to enjoying the bigger things in life!

  8. it's so sad that when you talk about selling all your possessions i kinda freak out, but then it really got me thinking about all the stuff i have and don't really flipping need. thanks for some perspective this Friday!

  9. Are those fudgsicles for sale .. I'm very interested in them!! You guys are so close to your goal .. I wish the best for both of you!

  10. *fist pumps* you can do it!! Almost there...

  11. You have the rest of your life to accumulate "stuff." And you can always replace that dining room table and Tiffany jewelry but the memories and experiences you are going to have while traveling the world are going to be irreplaceable =)

  12. I actually have a question. Are you two planning on going back to SD or maybe if you find a location along the way; settle somewhere in the world? If you loved Spain (hypothetically) You'd have to sell all your stuff anyways :/ Periods on top of chaos is never good, it will get better! :) *Hugs*

  13. It really is the small, cliche things in life that motivate us to keep on going. I am almost as excited for your adventures as if I am the one going on this trip with you! This thing you are doing really has taught me that if I really want something I can work my butt off now and I will get there. "Hard work pays off." Right? Haha keep on going girl, everything will come together soon enough :)

  14. Sometimes cliches are more true than we might think they are! They don't all need to be dismissed...

  15. Your little letter was just so sweet. And really, you don't need much more than Netflix and fudgesicles and people you lub.

  16. With every single one of your posts, I get more and more jealous!

  17. My Sweet little girl,
    You are DOING what most people only dream of doing. If it were easy, the whole world would be doing it. I hope that one of the lessons you learn is that you are still YOU even without all the "stuff" that identified who you were in the past. I love you!
