Shout out to Squarespace
for sponsoring today’s video. Good morning. Yes, yes. Hey, YouTube World it’s me, Evelyn. Happy Wednesday. Today we’re
doing a life admin day, which is just a day dedicated to
getting your life back on track. I went to Turks and Caicos
for my friend’s 30th birthday. First dirty 30 of 2020 and hence the… hence. I got in at
midnight. Okay. I’m sayin, so I’m going to take y’all along
on my day as I get it together. It’s February. Happy Black History Month, first and foremostly, and
it’s the beginning of February, and I want this month to
be a good month. Okay. Life admin day is crucial to getting
my month off on the right foot. You already know what it is. The first thing we do in our
life admin day is we make a list. Let’s do that. All right, so this is what
we have going on for today. Today’s actually a mixture
of life admin, you know, getting myself back in order
after traveling for the past week, but it’s also a work day
and it’s days like this, it’s times, hallelujah. Like this where I’m just
really grateful that I work from home and that I work for myself, which
reminds me in my bullet journal. I have a gratitude log and I haven’t
filled it out for February. So today I’m going to also be marinating
on what I am thankful for in February, but we’re not there yet. First, juice. Um, could I get a shot of shot of wheat grass please? Yeah, do you
want one ounce or two? One ounce please. You got it. All right. I got a wheat
grass shot. I can’t. Cheers! Oh And then I got the moderator,
which isn’t on the menu anymore, but it’s like the best one.
It’s beets, lemon, ginger. You know, you know when your
mom says drink some ginger ale. You know what I’m saying? For
digestion. I just get this. Now we’re headed to the grocery store to get a little bit of groceries just so that I’m set up for the rest of the week to
have food in the house as opposed to getting tendies, as opposed
to getting chicken tendies. Headed back to the house gonna eat a little something cause I
am not one of those people that thinks juice is a meal. And the next time you see me I’ll
probably be doing a spot of work. All right. It is now
11:30. So there’s that. I’m reading a contract and I’m just like, I’m not built for this. Okay. Wait what? Pursuant…. Okay, I’m just going to send that to her. Okay. I have a phone call.
Oh gosh. I have a phone call. I’m nervous, ah No worries. No worries. I am tired. It is 3:30, call is finished. Follow up email sent. I got invoices to pay child. I’m going to pause on the work for a
little bit and pick up my life admin day. Let’s do that. Unpack. All right. It’s the next day.
Um, worry about yourself. Um, this post travel life admin day continues. So I have set up my calendar for the
month so that I know what I’m working on and when. Come on systems and
processes, I checked and answered all my emails. I always say
I hate emails, but I want to clarify. I don’t mean emails from y’all.
I love that. It’s a delight. I hate work-related emails.
Just want to clarify. I finished folding and
putting away the laundry. I opened all my regular
mail. Okay, #bills, I don’t know why they send me paper
mail when I said email is okay, but I think they knew I don’t
be opening the email. Valid. I did a little bit of meal prep m’kay,
so I have something to munch on instead of going to Shipley’s like I already
did. Don’t worry about it. It’s in the past and I updated my website
with all the places I believe I will be speaking at soon. We’re going
to Baltimore. We’re going to Toronto, I think, um, maybe some South by
Southwest stuff here in Austin. I don’t know if anybody looks
at the updates on the website, but I be doing them. Shout out to Squarespace for sponsoring

I graduate from my Masters program in May but the turnaround between that and starting a full time job might be tight so my family is road tripping from VA to Los Angeles with a long stop at the Grand Canyon. Pray we donโ€™t hurt each other in the car ๐Ÿ’€

  6. Ima give them kinky curls 3 mo days in Evelyn head lol, I would say two days but she booked and busy so she might have to postpone taking it out for a day or two.

  7. You deserve all the applause for washing AND THEN putting them away… I have came to terms that my laundry room is my extended closet.

  15. So glad to see you refreshed and perky after vacation! I really like to wash my clothes and take a shower after traveling. I try to make sure my place is organized and neat so when I come back I have less to do right away. Hope everybody is having a great day today!

  22. Evelyn, my black behind never goes anywhere and when I decide to intern in a whole Tanzania is when you decide to come to Baltimore? I do not appreciate the personal slight, lol!

  23. Trip I have in the faith-works is visiting my dear COUSIN cousin in Texas. ๐Ÿงฟ Gosh, I miss her. โค๏ธ

  24. I'm headed to Trinidad Carnival 2020 and I already mentally checked out from my 9to5. Unpacking is the last thing I do when I come from a trip…. UNLESS I'm headed out AGAIN!

  25. omg YES TO SHIPLEYS! The good lord understands bc them thangs are HEAVENLY OK ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ๐Ÿคค
    so much love you my fellow Kenyan cousin making me motivated to get mines all the way together ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—

  26. When I get back from a trip I lay on my bed and have a moment of appreciation. There is nothing like the comfort of your own bed! โค๏ธ

  27. Hey girl! I saw you at The Texas Book Festival but I was munching on a subway sandwich and did not want to approach you with honey mustard on my chin. I'm headed to LA literally in the morning. Have I started packing? No! Will I after I finish this quadruple patty burger from Jack in the Box? Yes! Love you girl <3

  28. Hi Evelyn! Iโ€™m so thankful for you and your creative self and your openness in sharing bits and pieces of your life and personality with us. Today was a really hard day for me and I barely just got my anxiety down. In the few seconds into this video I just bursted out laughing and for once today I felt happy and at peace. Thank you for giving me that today. โ™ฅ๏ธ you have no idea how much I needed this video โ˜บ๏ธ have a blessed day! – your internet cousin ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ท

  29. I returned from a trip to South Korea on January 4th. (sigh) I am still trying to get myself together! I feel like I am three months behind. lol

  30. I don't get to travel often, partially due to funds, partially due to getting homesick very easily (nothing compares to my own bed and bedroom, even if my mattress is old and lumpy, lol. It's MY lumpy mattress!).

    Ahem. Anywho, whenever I do get back from trips, it's important to give myself a full day of chill before going back to work. I unpack the day I get home (or clean if I left my room in a condition that would make a hurricane blush in embarrassment), and then chill the rest of that day and the next. Just like with my days off, I hate tasks looming over my head so I try to force myself to take care of things on day one so I can enjoy the rest of my time.

    Yes, I was that kid that finished homework on Friday night, so long as it wasn't math ๐Ÿ™‚

  31. Hey Evelyn!
    Im going to New Orleans for the 1st time. Im trying to organize my apartment more before I go. I like coming back to an organized space when I come home from a trip. It makes me feel at peace to see my bed made after missing it for a few days ๐Ÿ˜

  32. Lol, youโ€™ll keep it in for max, another month. When I come back from a trip I have to clear my suitcase first so I donโ€™t put it off.

  33. When I pack to
    Go home I Jenga pack to make it easier when I get home. That means if I can: wash before I leave. Learned that the hard way getting stuck in airports during small country crisisโ€™ or corruptions aka interruptions. At lest when you are stuck I had clean clothes. Also wash yo drawz by hand before you leave (see a trend?).

  34. I love your videos especially as a creative myself. Have you done a video on your journey to late your gig as a video producer (Pbs I believe) and if you haven't do you have any on which to share? Even on the types of jobs or work to produce to get connected with people in those spaces.

    Thanks again

  35. Girl, you funny ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ How am I just now finding you? Doesnโ€™t matter. Iโ€™m subscribed now I fixed it.

  36. I actually unpack as soon as I get in the door, well and make it to my bedroom. Even before taking off my bra. Because I've known myself all my life and I know if I don't do it then it ain't getting done in a LONG time. A week later I will be wondering where a particular pair of pants are and I realize, oh snap I never unpacked them.

  37. I was gonna press like as soon as she said "happy black history month", then I scrolled up and saw that I already had ๐Ÿคญ

  38. Lol, it is a given. When I'm feeling extra spicey and want to treat myself, I like to put on a mud mask and clean up my room. Then I binge play The Sims.

  39. I binge your channel like I binge cheetos. You are everything the little black girl in me needs ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ๐Ÿค—

  40. Iโ€™m just out here minding my magical Black business and BAM news hits that Bruno Mars and Janet Jackson are co-headlining this yearโ€™s Essence Festival. Now I got to plan a trip the same month Iโ€™m moving and buying a house. Lort
    But yeah. See yโ€™all in New Orleans.
