[Meet the hilarious, intelligent and flirty Farkle Minkus from Girl Meets World. Turns out there is a lot you can do with pen and paper. Some of the things we do with these two simple objects are what makes some of us feel the most alive.]
Goal for the week: Let’s take out the headphones, put away the phone, make some eye contact, and connect with those around us.

A happy crisp morning to you! The sounds of sirens and construction inundate the busy Manhattan life. It’s a fresh new start today to get stuff done. The sky is a perfect shade of blue. And while it will be a long day, it will be a good day.
People here in the lounge are pacing around and shuffling papers. I am here, posting and smiling. A professor just walked by and gave me a look–he is definitely wondering what I am up to. Celebrating Monday, of course. Oh yeah!
1] Hellooooooo first Monday in November (Farkle voice). I am loving this crispy air and fall makeup situation. You can just feel the fact that the holidays are coming at us quick, and I can’t wait. Felicia will laugh at me for this, but I also have to mention that November is Diabetes Awareness Month. Why they pick the month when we eat rich foods is beyond me…
2] Walk your road

4] I guess it’s about filling the holes of uncertainty with the things that have proven to be certain in your life.

14] It may leave you a little out of breath, but it’s worth it because out of breath or in pain, you arrived.
