“Try new things. Go new places. Use new tools. Meet new faces.” ~Unknown
Going to places in the city that I’ve never been to before is something that I really love to do. It is fun finding new spots in town that you can leave and say to yourself, “That was fun. I really want to go back there.”

Should you split the bill on a date or should the guy pay for it? I go back and forth on this topic.
I want to be the independent, millennial woman who takes care of herself and says without a doubt that the bill should be split 50/50…but there is a part of me that wants that old school, romanticized, he took care of me feeling.
“Every time I thought I was being rejected from something good, I was actually being re-directed to something better.” ~ Dr. Steve Maraboli
I understand why rejection hurts so bad when you are really interested in a guy and you find out that he is not interested back. That’s a shitty feeling. You start questioning everything about yourself. Am I not pretty enough? Did I say something wrong? Does he not like where I am in my career? Etc. etc.
The thing I am struggling to understand is why rejection still stings so bad even when you may not be that into a guy or are still trying to decide. Let me explain…
A few months ago I scheduled a personal day for today. I had no plans and I still don’t; and can I just say that feels terrific?! Some people may see taking a day off for no reason as a waste of a vacation day, but usually when I’m taking a day off it’s for others- such as traveling home to see family for holidays, etc. So, why not use one of my days for myself and take a ME DAY?
