Hi, I'm Morgan.

"Cheers, Morgan" is how I sign my emails, and the upbeat attitude I try to bring to every aspect of life. Read on for thoughts on books, fitness, travel, approaching my mid-twenties, and everything in between.

It's been a week of quality time with friends and soccer and naps and great food. I hate how hot summers are in North Carolina, but I love the easy days and relaxed spirit. The weather can go, but that mood can stay forever.

Currently reading
My friend Mary loaned me a book called My Oxford Year, the plot of which is basically my dream? The protagonist goes to Oxford to study for a year and at the same time gets offered her dream job on a presidential campaign. She tries to do both at the same time, and I feel extremely confident she's going to fall in love with the "posh prick" she crashed into in the fish and chips shop. Can't wait to find out!

Currently watching
WORLD CUP, BABY! A podcast that I listened to described it as the "Christmas of soccer" — except if Christmas lasted an entire month instead of one day. I'm pulling for England (which I usually do) and Egypt (who are highly unlikely to even advance from their group, but my angel Mo Salah plays for them).

Currently listening
I taught a "Best of Broadway" spin class on Wednesday, so I've had an extremely weird mashup of a lot of different songs stuck in my head for much of the week. Even ones I listened to and didn't end up using in the class! It was a super fun playlist, with lots of traditional Broadway songs (Rent, Hairspray, Spring Awakening) and a few weird and fun things thrown in (a Dear Evan Hansen remix and a trap version of Circle of Life — because why not). 

Currently eating
Last weekend I made funfetti cupcakes and iced half with marshmallow vanilla frosting and half with strawberry frosting. I've basically been eating one per day since then, and it's been so tasty. I love funfetti so much.

Currently loving
Funfetti, Holly Springs Salamanders, Savannah Bananas, Parkland students singing at the Tony's, Bachelorette Mondays with friends, s'mores in a jar, summer skies after it rains, Erin and Corey's new apartment, Pizzeria Toro, quiet Sunday nights in downtown Durham, raspberry gelato, Queen Elizabeth wearing lime.
