I was going to write this post all about challenges. Especially at the beginning of a new year, we’re encouraged to challenge ourselves, face our fears, try something new, and conquer our dreams. I was all ready to sit down and talk to you about challenges and this avocado smoothie, then…
My wifi went out. Of course. The biggest challenge of all. The universe must be testing my patience.
I’ve been in this apartment for a little over two months, and overall, I really love it here. The location is perfect – on the bus route to campus and close by to a beautiful city park. Leo🐱 and I are finally settled in and mostly organized. I love the ample storage space in the kitchen and my simple bedroom, and he loves looking out the window sitting atop his cat tree. Man, I love that little guy.
Anyways, all has been fine and dandy… except the wifi. It’s unpredictable and quick to go out at the exact time you need it most (like when a paper is due or when I need to write a post about a creamy avocado smoothie). Look, I know there are much, much bigger problems in the world than my wifi, but as someone who mainly works online, it definitely is a frustrating situation!
Buuuut I guess it was only fitting that when I wanted to write about challenges, I faced a big one of my own. I sucked it up, dragged my butt to the nearest coffee shop, and kept on working. When life tries to bring you down, drink an avocado smoothie and act like the superhero that you are. That’s my motto, at least.
I wanted to talk about challenges because some of you might be thinking, “Avocado? In a smoothie?! No way. I just got on board with spinach in my smoothie. No more vegetables.” Trust me, I get it. You may be weirded out. It’s new, unknown, and… super duper green.
Or you might be really excited about avocado in a smoothie because HEYYY avocados are basically a food group on it’s own for you. Team Avocado Lovers, woo! (P.S. I really need to update my phone so I can use the avocado emoji. Ugh.)
