Day 150: Routines on Vac & To Do Capture

I spent the first four days of vac kind of ignoring my usual routines, and it was a nice break at first. But honestly — it kind of caught up with me. Not having morning time to think & organize –> less focused all…

Day 149: Vac Feeling

Day 142 // Habit Series: Walking
