you can only do so much

i love it when i go about the house while everyone else is sleeping. it allows me to be me, silently. this week has been harder for me at work because i'm literally starting from scratch. i had to create new trackers and other files to support the group and to track accurate data of our performance. in other words, i have been burning my ass, typing on my seat with hardly any breaks and yet, i'm still a lot behind on other deliverables. how can this be? if not for the vogue feature and harry keeping my mood up, i would have broken down. leadership is after all about service but i can only do so much. 

so, at 5:00 AM, just as my shift is on its 9th hour, i sigh, look at my unfinished work, pack my bags and drive myself through the silent city. 

i've said this and i'm gonna' say it again --- thanks for the support of this blog and for taking the time out to not only check my outfits but also read what i have to say. it means a lot. 

striped top - thrifted
brown leggings - random buy
brown peep-toe platforms - matthews at cmg
rings: black spade - props | round animal print - props

song on my mind: soldier on by the temper trap

Follow vanilla ice cream
