Hi everyone! Help me welcome July with a cup of coffee and a chat! I can’t believe that we’re already in July. It seems like this year is flying by!
Today I’m having the new dragonfruit drink at Starbucks! I did manage to try it this month before it started selling out in locations near me and I really liked it.
So let’s get into our chat!
If We Were Having Coffee
If We Were Having Coffee, I’d tell you all about how I’m totally over thunder storms that have been in the area for about two weeks. I hate driving in the rain since I got in an accident years ago and yet it always has to rain during my commute, even if it’s not in the forecast. Then my friend and I keep trying to go to Six Flags and every day that we’re both free the forecast changes to stormy which doesn’t work at an amusement/water park at all. I’m so done with it!
If We Were Having Coffee, I’d tell you how I’ve come to the conclusion that health insurance is an absolute scam. First, I have to pay money every month for insurance, which is fine. BUT then the only thing that is covered at 100% is preventative care. Which is super limited. If I go to the ER or doctor’s for anything else I have to pay a few grand out of pocket first before the insurance starts covering anything. Of course, this is just the insurance I have through work and a ton of coworkers have told me that there’s much better policies out there but they’re also more expensive and also don’t necessarily cover everything. In my opinion, if I pay for insurance everything needs to be covered at 100%. My auto insurance does that, so why not health, dental, or vision? So annoying!
If We Were Having Coffee, I’d tell you how I have increased my Netflix watching this week. I noticed my dad has been watching a ton more soccer because of the world cup and he’s normally watching Netflix during that time so I have to make up for it.
If We Were Having Coffee, I’d tell you how although I didn’t plan for this to start so negative I have one more thing that’s kinda complain-y. My public library sent their newsletter that included their programs for adults for the next few months. They have a lot that sound cool, and there were DIY programs that required registration. I went online to register two days later and they were all full! My library is never busy so I didn’t expect that they would be sold out already. I did get on the waitlist for them but things don’t look positive as I noticed the waitlists were closed after I went online so I’m guessing I’m at the bottom of the waitlist. Sigh.
If We Were Having Coffee, I’d tell you how I have hung out with so many work friends IRL. On Thursday I went with two friends to mini golf, dinner, and a movie. Then yesterday I went to game night hosted by a work friend. And then today one of my work besties went to Six Flags with me (one of the mini golf friends)! We were chased out because of storms but it was so fun and I had fun hanging out with them.
If We Were Having Coffee, I’d tell you how I’m starting to get stuff ready for a garage sale! So my subdivision sent out a flyer that they were having a subdivision wide garage and my mom and I are all in. We’ve never done it and now I’m gathering books I don’t need to try to sell them. I can’t wait to try it out although I’m worried it’ll be more trouble than it’s worth. Now that I think about it, I may have mentioned this before.
If We Were Having Coffee, I’d tell you that although I’m sad I missed picking strawberries at a local farm, I’m happy I missed out on getting a million mosquito bites. That always happens!
If We Were Having Coffee, I’d tell you that I need to get working on my homework again! I started quite a bit of it but haven’t picked it up again in a few days. I should start!
If We Were Having Coffee, I’d tell you how my bookshelves are starting to look empty. I’m trying to to buy more things though so I might try to turn it into a space for stuff to review or something. Any other ideas?
If We Were Having Coffee, I’d tell you how excited I am for the adventures that are to come in July!
My Life in Seconds
This app is actually starting to make me think my life is quite boring. Usually I’m not sure what to do because the highlight of my day is generally something that has already been seconded, like lunch on the patio. Ah well, it’s still fun, even if sometimes I forget and have to use photos instead of seconds to fill every day. Plus, some days are really awesome so it’s fun to share it!
And that’s what I’d share for our coffee chat and my One Second A Day video. Let me know what you’d share in our coffee chats!
Thanks for reading!
