As of today, it’s officially December. Say what?! I know I always talk about how quickly time goes by, but seriously, where did 2017 go? I don’t know about you guys, but I’m ready to finish off the year. It was so incredibly (truly), but I’m certainly ready for all that 2018 has to bring. Keep reading below for the latest volume of Friday Five!
Earlier this week, I posted a quote on my Instagram stories from this new devotional I’m reading. A lot of you messaged me wanting to know the name so I figured I’d include it here! I haven’t been the best about reading it every single day but I’m certainly trying. So far, I really do like it as it’s very relatable. It’s a great pick for me while I find my way back to my faith.
Eat // Bounce Sporting Club
Okay, maybe not eat (though they do have food), but definitely drink and party here! Last night, I went to the opening of Bounce Sporting Club and saw Fetty Wap perform to celebrate the occasion. It’s a new spot in the River North neighborhood of Chicago where the nightclub Parliament used to be. If you love sports (or just drinking), it’s definitely a place you’ll want to check out soon.
Listen // Get comfortable with being uncomfortable
If you read my favorite podcasts blog post then you know that TED Talks Daily is one of them. Today’s daily talk is all about becoming comfortable with being uncomfortable. Luvvie Ajayi basically says that our silence serves no one. More often than not, we need to put ourselves in that uncomfortable place, for a multitude of reasons. Take a listen. I don’t think you’ll regret it.
