  • Updates All-Around: Career & The Usual Stuff

    { 17 comments }

    It’s been a really good week. I recently stepped out of my role as general manager of the gym and into a position where I provide marketing, website, communications and social media support on a more part-time basis.

  • The Final Countdown

    { 18 comments }

    I am so happy to be in a vertical position blogging in bed right now. I was a busy bee today trying to make all the final preparations for my trip tomorrow. I’ve always found it challenging to get things in a good place at work before I leave for vacations. I want for things [...]

    I have been relatively worthless today. I subbed out my classes so as not to spread my cold germs and proceeded to sleep until 9 a.m. Once I rolled out of bed, I immediately started on breakfast and coffee. I made a bowl of Silk Nog Holiday Oatmeal and topped it with TJs pumpkin butter [...]

  • A Festive Weekend

    Happy Sunday! I hope the weekend has been great for you. I think the theme of my weekend is taking pictures in front of Christmas trees. Such a festive time of year. :P I’ll divide this post into “what I did” and “what I ate.” Weekend Activities (a.k.a. how many pictures can i take in [...]
