Monday Motivation: The Hunger Games

Happy Monday–or not so happy Monday if you’re a Pats fan. Being from the great state of Massachusetts I was rooting for the boys in blue and red last night (even though I’m not a football fan). But you gotta loose sometimes. It’s a super sleepy Monday for me, and while I’m not ready to get in gear I gotta. This week’s quote is from the beloved Hunger Games. Let me know what you need motivation for this week in the comments!

Hey everyone, happy Monday! We had some major snow here in Massachusetts last week, so I spent a couple of days working from home and holed up in my apartment, but now it’s back to reality.

Monday Motivation: Fireblood

Like usual, I stayed up way way way too late last night and am paying for it this morning. Not the best way to start the week. But I’m just going to try my best to power through. But I have some exciting stuff coming up this week to look forward to anyway. My boyfriend is temporarily moving in for a couple days sometime this week, before for real/permanently moving in after the holidays. So that’ll be fun. And I have some holiday parties coming up.
