Yoga + Cards

Looking for jobs is exhausting and frustrating.  It makes me stop to think: 

If I could do absolutely anything for work what would it be?
What would you do?

It made me think of a business plan I had to do for one of my many, many group projects in undergrad.  The sheer number of group projects in business classes was amazing.  Anywho, a little background, I always stood out in my business classes and never quite fit in, but I absolutely finished my minors in marketing and sales leadership.  (Between my major and minors I dipped in the communications, art, and business schools.)

I have no idea how, but I convinced this particular group to do a business plan for a yoga studio that has a card making studio.  Looking back, I would have loved to see my professor's reaction when he first heard what our business was going to be!  

I really wish I could remember how I convinced them and made that happen.  I could use those skills everyday.  I think I just didn't over think it.  I just thought it was a good idea so I told them.  I didn't care if they said no.  It was all about throwing ideas around.

I mean, wouldn't that be amazing.  You go in, do yoga and then when you're on your yoga high (which does exist) you can stop to make someone a beautiful card or just spend time with your yoga friends.  

Something we didn't include that I'm thinking of now, is partnering with a group that distributes cards to hospitals, nursing homes, etc.  So if you're just hanging out, you can make a card for someone you may not even know.

I don't really remember how the business plan went.  I do feel like I remember the professor was against us from the start, but our business plan was the most creative in the class and I think we brought a little spunk into that classroom.  Honestly, it was probably pretty far out of his comfort zone.

To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.

Veggie Tinga

I made Vegetarian Tinga for a mexican pot luck I went to on Tuesday.

Many people have never heard of Tinga, let alone knowing you can make it vegetarian style.  You absolutely can!  And it's so easy.

Traditional tinga is made of shredded chicken with chipotle flavoring.  I used cabbage instead of the chicken.

I looked at a lot of different recipes online, but couldn't find a recipe for the veggie tinga I had in mind, so I ended up combining the guidelines of those recipes and making my own.

Here's what I did:

1 onion
1 head of cabbage
1 7oz. can chipotle (the peppers in adobo sauce)
5 ish roma tomatoes
olive oil

-Saute onion in olive oil.
-Chop cabbage (I used youtube to help me figure out the best way to do that) add to onion and saute.
-Blend the chipotle and tomatoes in blender.
Note:  Some people only like to add the sauce from the chipotle peppers.  I added the entire can (including the peppers themselves).  It's up to you depending on how spicy you want it.  (I like my food s…

Week Notes

The teenagers from Parkland are giving me so much hope.  So much hope.  I think this is the first time I've read a political news article and smiled since Nov. 8, 2016.

Is the Tide commercial making anyone else cry during the Olympics?

As someone who's not generally a TV fan, how is it possible for me to get so involved, so quickly, in every sport?  Which by the way I know nothing about.

Anyone ever try Door Dash.  I'm not big on delivery services in general, but after a bad experience with Grub Hub we gave Door Dash a try and we are fans.

When a friend recommends a happy hour place, you go.  So Thursday morning a friend told me about Mangia Italiano.  Thursday happy hour Mike & I were there.


*Karen tells me that is not what I'm supposed to say, but it makes sense in my head...

Saturday I was in San Antonio for work, I did get to hang out with a friend while I was in town so that definitely made the trip better, combined with the fact that the volunteers there are just wonderful.

I knew Sunday was going to be overwhelming before I left on Friday.  I always write lists when I'm overwhelmed, I wrote a list.  (Even though I hardly referenced it on Sunday.)  Just writing it down helps me feel better.

Sunday we registered for at two places, starting at 9am.  When we finished the second one (which we were both dragging ourselves through) it felt like it was time for was 2pm.  Guys, this experience brought so much clarity to people's registerys.  I would not necessarily say it was a fun experience.  And I am very happy Mike seems to have a vision because we would limit the insane number of options down to a couple options together and then I would say I don'…
