Happy Tuesday! Aren’t you so happy Monday is over?? Only 3 more days until the weekend rolls back around (yessss!)
The past month and a half have honestly been pretty chill but also productive since I’ve had to take this semester off for medical reasons. I’ve spent time getting into photography, taking voice lessons, creating this blog, and several other things I’ll have to make time for when I return to school. So many thoughts have gone through my head since I’ve been making an effort to be mindful and spending more time at home. Like have you ever thought about you can live in a city or neighborhood for so long and never really take a chance to explore it?
Last week I grabbed coffee with a friend at a gorgeous place in West Midtown. It’s literally two minutes from Tech, but over the two years I’ve lived on campus I’ve barely been there once. I completely missed the décor and environment the first time I went (probably because I was rushing tbh). So this time I made sure to appreciate it. I’m kind of a picky about coffee – dark roasts are way too bitter for me so I always order something on the sweet side and usually with caramel. The Caramelatto I ordered was SO good and we split the most amazing roast beef sandwich I’ve ever tasted.
Genuine conversation + an industrially beautiful environment + delicious coffee = Octane Coffee officially becoming my new favorite spot.
As a part of my vow to carpe diem and enjoy the moment, we decided to take a few pictures before we left.
As I’m preparing for surgery later today, I’ve been thinking about how the next couple months will be totally different from the “usual daily schedule” I’ve gotten used to. So to help me get through the recovery period, I’ve decided to think positively and look forward to getting back on my feet to explore all the nooks and crannies of Atlanta (and of course document with tons of pictures). It’s SOOOO much easier said than done, but I think one of the best ways to get through a rough time or experience is to look forward to the end of it and what you’ll do when it’s over.
If you’re in Atlanta, definitely go check out Octane Coffee!
