Intriguing Things:Volume XII

Hello, folks.

It’s been a wild run this June. I’ve been working almost three straight weeks. My last day off was Sunday, June 5th, after working at Mountain Jam for the weekend. I had the most special Sunday, it was glorious, and I am eagerly counting down the days until I am off.

I am working a triathlon in Hague, NY (up near Lake George) this weekend for my ‘real job’; we’re going to leave at 5:45am on Friday. I will see ya later, sleep.

Also, I’m teaching 3 yoga classes a week, as well as finishing up this Standard Process Purification cleanse.

So far, June has been 1. work, work,work,work, work,work, which results in 2. saving money, and 3. getting healthy.

Can’t complain about that.

Somehow, I’ve managed to see a few dear friends in this time, go on a couple of adventures ( like taking my sister to see Mumford & Sons tomorrow night at SPAC- can’t wait!), and read this amazing book, which I’ll tell you about below.

Without further ado, here’s what’s intriguing me now.

All things Osheaga


I went to Osheaga last year, and bought my tickets the second they came on sale for this year. Last week, my boyfriend bit the bullet and bought his tickets, too, so we are going on another grand adventure (he went to Mountain Jam, too- fun!).

I’ve got about 12 amazing friends from all over ( Toronto, New York and Vermont) coming to jam out with us, and we’re staying in a nice part of the city. We went to an old warehouse for a jungle-themed after party last year, and had an absolute blast.

In preparation, I’ve starting hoarding singles from my yoga classes in a jar, to cover cocktails, stocking up on rompers, and obsessively listening to the artists who will be at the event.

Ce’st la vie!

His Dark Materials Series

It’s true: I am a nerd, forever, and will always be. I prefer to read a book than watch television, and didn’t even know how to use a remote until I moved back home in December (not for lack of trying).

I used to never own a tv, and exclusively binge-watched Netflix or HBO original series when something intrigued me, and went back to my normal life. The series is something I have read before, and, when I found it in a thrift store for $1, I could hardly pass it up…

Learn more about it on GoodReads here, or just believe me that it will change your world and pick up a copy from your local library.


I’m into hiking right now; like, I’m really into hiking right now. We’re going camping at North/South Lake Campground next Friday, and I am eagerly awaiting 1. beer ( cleanse ends, joy) and 2. checking out some trails I haven’t revisited since I was in college.

Hiking and yoga are a perfect mix, not only are they a sweaty and perfect workout individually, but both focus your breath on the moment and place you are in, and what could be better than that?

I’m also in the process of figuring out where I want to do my 500 hour yoga teacher training, and applying to some of those places. I can’t knock the feeling in my mind that someday, I will move to Rhode Island for like two years and get the Master’s in Holistic Psychology I have been craving- it would be happening after I buy my ski house, of course, and renting it out to make that monayyyyy!

I think this 500 hour should tide me over until then, and allow me to open the gateway to more yogic opportunities, like teacher trainings, retreats, and workshops.

Summer’s looking good- what’s intriguing you now?
