No matter how crazy and frustrating life can get, I always make an effort to see the silver lining and be obnoxiously positive. That’s why I did something called I Love…Fridays on my blog every week, but haven’t done so in the last few years when I needed it the most. Consider this a comeback of this weekly feature, where I talk about the things that have made me smile this week. Feel free to chime in and tell me the things you love on Twitter with the hashtag #IloveFridays. If you aren’t following me on Twitter, get on it! @BerrakDC
You’ll also notice that there are no longer comments on my blog. One of my favorite things about blogging, when I began, was all of the interactions in the comments. There used to be pages of conversations in the comments along, but as the internet has evolved, so has blogging and the way people interact with blogs. I get that. While I still love the feedback and interaction I get on my blog, I have to accept that it’s evolved into conversations off the blog. So you can find me on Twitter, my Facebook page, or email me.
Now on to the list!
I love…that it’s WORLD PENGUIN DAY!!
I love…that Istanbul is at the top of this list. Because it’s awesome, and I’m ridiculously homesick.
I love…my job. Seriously. I’m going to write a longer blog about it and how the adjustment to working with a team has been, but I wake up every day and get to do what I love for a company I’ve loved for years.
I love…that my impostor syndrome is in remission.
I love…that my friends send me ridiculous pictures and GIFs in the middle of the day.
I love…that I FINALLY GOT TO SEE PENGUINS IN REAL LIFE AND FED ONE NAMED FIONA. BECAUSE GUYS, MY LIFE IS NOW COMPLETE.
I love…that no one even batted an eye when I said that I’m going to get the domain name berrak.coffee
I love…that I am going to both VidCon and World Domination Summit this year! This summer is going to be wonderful. Are you going to either? Tell me on Twitter!
I love…living in Seattle. I love that my friends and I now have rituals, and that I enjoy both the sunshine and the rain.
I love…having ridiculous conversations like these.
