Let’s have coffee

I love these types of posts. Whether it’s coffee, tea, diet code red mountain dew (my teeth are going to rot off, I swear) … I love getting coffee with a friend and catching up. Since I don’t have many in-person coffee dates planned, let’s have one together!

Coffee Date

If we were having coffee …

I’d tell you about the awesome, life-changing and uplifting trip I had to Chicago last week. Do any of you ever just “click” with someone, something, some place? That’s how I felt with Chicago. I’ve always liked it there, but this last time just solidified things for me. Even a few of you who watched my video noticed how happy I was, which is crazy to me that you can see that!

I’d ask you a million and one questions, because that’s what I do. I love hearing about things happening in my friends lives, whether it’s how passionate they are about their work, a new person joining their family, a funny date story … I love it. So how about you tell me something about you in the comments? I’d love to hear it. πŸ™‚

I’d probably spill some of my drink on myself, let’s be real.

I’d tell you about a huge weight being lifted off my shoulders. After over a year of being denied by loan refinancing companies, one finally refinanced my loan based on my credit score instead of solely based on my very low salary. So, my payments were supposed to go up to $867 in January (per month) … and the loan refinancing company cut that in half. It’s a HUGE weight off my shoulders and a little more manageable. Seriously, check out SoFiΒ if you’re struggling with student loans (or any type of personal debt).

You’d probably ask me about my dating life because, well … that’s what people ask single people. It’s okay, though. I’m used to it. I’d tell you I’m not actively seeking anyone, not online dating, none of that. I’d tell you that I’ve given up on the dating scene where I live a long time ago because I have no intention of staying in the area forever, which obviously hinders my dating life. Now, if you prod a little bit more, I’d probably tell you about someone that currently has my “attention”, so to speak, but I’m nervous about it. GirlΒ hasΒ been burned quite a few times, so I am apprehensive. But you would be able to see past the nervousness and see that I’m more excited than nervous. We’ll see what happens. πŸ™‚ (<— I’m THE BEST at being vague enough that ya’ll will hate me)

I’d ask you your opinion on what to wear for a wedding next month because girl is BAD at making decisions.

I’d ask you about your favorite hair stylist … hair is a big deal for me and I haven’t had mine done in almost a year. Whoops …

I’d tell you about how crazy my November is going to be for work – just the full-time job. I have five events next month, but four of them require overnight travel. Nov. 3: Madison, Nov. 10: Minneapolis (overnight), Nov. 15-18: Chicago (multiple overnights). I’d tell you that I’m excited about it, because getting out of the office and being at my events is the best feeling. Although, you would probably be able to tell that I’m hopeful for new opportunities soon.

I’d tell you that we need to have coffee more often because I miss being with like-minded, fun, energetic, driven people. So, I’d basically beg you to be my friend all the time. πŸ˜‰

Linking up with Amanda!

I asked you above, but if we were getting coffee, what would you want to talk about? What would you ask me? What kind of drink would you get?

It’s good to have a gym to go to……I’m getting more fit slowly but it is happening:) I love this wx……Fall can stick around for a long time if it wants. Oh and I want to visit Chicao so badly! It didn’t happen this year—which anoid me……..so cool that you love it!

    • Jessie says:

      Positive vibes to youuuuuu! I’m sure you’ll find something amazing. πŸ™‚ And LOVE to hear that you feel like you’re getting more fit. So awesome! Well, if I ever move to Chicago you can come and visit and we’ll get a REAL coffee! πŸ™‚

      • Amy says:

        Thanks Jessie:) I started out feeling like a new opportunity may happen, but over the last month, I need to be working from 8-5, so yeah…….patience is not an easy thing. Oh Chicago……..if I land a job soon, I may go solo for a couple of days:)

    Thanks for reminding me I need to find a dress to wear to a wedding in November too! And that is so awesome you got your loan refinanced! I would tell you how nervous I am about the Cubs playing tonight.

    • Jessie says:

      Dangit! We should’ve went shopping together when I was in town. πŸ™‚ Thanks, girl! Huge weight off my shoulders. And I hope they win! As long as the football team loses to my team tonight, all other Chicago teams can do well. πŸ˜‰

    Reading this reminded me that I too desperately need to schedule a hair appointment because YIKES mine is looking rough. Also that’s great about your student loan refi! Sounds like such a relief!

    • Jessie says:

      Don’t you hate it, though? I love having fresh, pretty hair but I HATE spending money on it! πŸ™‚ And thank you, it’s a huge relief.
