A First: Aromatherapy Dough

On a whim I decided to buy aromatherapy dough and see how it worked for me. Random, I know. An old coworker of mine was always messing with some throughout the day so when I stumbled across it online I thought, “why not give it a shot?”

Now if anyone doesn’t know what it is or supposed to do (I didn’t know either)- I can only describe it as playdough that smells nice with a purpose in the same vein as a fidget spinner. It was explained there are lots of benefits to using it from dealing with stress and anxiety to stimulating learning, etc. I purchased mine for the former.   

All in all I’d say it’s pretty neat so far, but I did make one grave error…I may have picked the wrong scent: lemongrass.

Now don’t get me wrong, I love lemongrass or else why would I have picked it? The problem though is I’ve realized lemongrass isn’t particularly soothing…for me. Within a day my thought was, “I should have gone with eucalyptus”.  

I plan to give it a few more days, but as of now I think I’m going to save it for when I start a new position. Something tells me this lemongrass is really going to give a boost with training.

It’s Time for a Vacation!

Full disclosure it probably isn’t the best time for a vacation given the recent unemployment situation and all, BUT…I already paid for the flights well in advance and considering it’s only a weekend trip- it won’t interfere with possible interview dates.

Anyway! Now that we’ve covered the responsible adult take; we can now look at the fun stuff. such as the main question: Where am I going? Well, it’s none other than The Big Apple also known as; Empire City, The City That Never Sleeps, The Capital of The World, and…uh…New York City!

It’s going to be my first time (whoop whoop!) and I’m literally flying up tonight for a party tomorrow to then fly back Sunday.

My boyfriend told me we’re going out with friends once we land, so I’m honestly not sure how much of NYC I’m about to see in the daytime, but…I’m really all about the food. In fact, I really want to to go to one of the restaurants that serve bugs (I can thank Adam Conover for that!).

Now let’s get this show on the road because I just got my final paycheck and have an interview on Monday!
