“All I Want is Everything”​

— one of my fave songs by JoJo; it’s one of my anthems


How you doing? I’ve been feeling a little antsy and I feel the travel bug creeping in but…we’re in a pandemic so where am I going really?

Rest has been the theme of my week. My newest thing is working intuitively. When I wanna beast, I beast. When I wanna binge Netflix all day with UberEats by my side, I do that. It’s a very new concept for me and I love it.

I’ve had many late nights of work this week, but I’ve also woken up to 2 90-minute massages in my living room, a private yoga class, many joints + laughs shared with friends…. It’s a beautiful balance.

In honor of Future Mae, yesterday I decided to block off the following on my calendar:

  • the last week of every quarter
  • the last 2 weeks of the year
  • the entire month of January 2022

These won’t be my only rest days, but I live for structure and I figured this would be a great way to set a foundation of luxury + rest.

The life that you desire is yours if you choose to make it happen.

And I love making shit happen.

Let’s dive in!

  • The Mail was formally ordered to post about their loss to Meghan + Harry on the front page of their Sunday paper and if that isn’t justice, idk what is.
  • If you don’t watch Queen Sugar — why not?! These interview tips that Charlie gave Darla are straight facts.
  • 3 words: Marc Lamont Hill. 🤤 I just bought his new book Except for Palestine. Here’s a great summary about why he’s so invested in what’s happening in Palestine because he stands for justice of all people, not just his own.
  • I laughed way too hard at this. And watched it way too many times. #noregrets
  • I love Planet Money, I love The Simpsons and I love economics so this podcast was my dream come true. Do you think The Simpsons would be considered middle class in 2021?
  • Great article about how student loan debt in the States is holding back would-be entrepreneurs and thus holding back economic growth.

What’s up with me?

  • The highlight of my week was busting my ass attempting to do a handstand without a wall. I love my inversion practice so much and I’m always like 🤯 when I think about how scared I used to be of falling. Now, the only person scared of me falling is my mom.
  • I took a nap today for the first time in a minute and omg…
  • I’ve had some super busy days lately and sometimes I’ll get overwhelmed and then I look at my calendar and it’s full of business meetings with friends, Spanish classes, therapy… Again, the balance right now is 🤤🤤🤤
  • If you’re working on handstands, I like these drills a lot.

Track of the Week

Drizzy… Why do you do this? Idk how I choose a favorite of these 3. I think it’s What’s Next, but I can’t decided yet. Listen to them all and decide for yourself.


  • What’s your favorite thing about yourself?
  • If you’re in the market for virtual private yoga classes, I can’t recommend Route + Align enough. My classes are the highlight of my week.
  • I’m looking to collaborate with 2 fellow stoners who are down to collab on a rolling class that I’m hosting. It won’t be a paid collabo because all proceeds will be donated to organizations fighting for criminal justice reform specific to cannabis convictions.⁠ If you know anyone, send ’em my way por fa!

Until next Friday, mi gente! I hope you find time for a snuggle or cozy nap this weekend.

And maybe a massage. You deserve it. 😉

Stay cozy,
