At the Del Mar Fair 2015

Alex and I went to the Del Mair Fair this saturday. It was quite a decision to go. I haven't been for over 3 years, and the last time I really went as a fair goer (not as an exhibitor) was over 5 years ago. I felt like a change of pace so we decided to brave the crowds and just go. It turned out to be so much fun!

3 Possible Venues

Alex and I visited three possible wedding venues suggested by our wedding planner today. All of them were better than the only other venue we have ever visited. I believe this is the benefit of having a planner. The three we visited were Marina Village, Soledad Club, and The Rose Creek Cottage.

High Tea at Aubrey Rose

We had so much fun going to the coral tea room that I decided to look up other highly rated tea places in San Diego. The Aubrey Rose seems to be quite well regarded in the community.

Full time work, part time school. First semester reflection.

I feel like I have two full time jobs. I have my real full time job where I spend 45+hours per week, and my part time school commitment that I have decided to commit a conservative 15 hours a week studying and attending class. I knew something would have to give when I signed up for this. I was hoping that thing would be my breaking point. I was hoping that if I worked the hardest I could possibly work, stay focused the most I ever had before, I would break down some kind of capacity barrier and reach that next level of efficiency. Instead, I am finding my priorities shifting under my feet. My relationships have crumbled, my hobbies are fading, and my health is deteriorating. I am having serious doubts about the path I’ve chosen for myself.
