My man mentioned that I hadn’t been blogging much, and have only been cross-posting my Instagram photos, to which I reply: guilty as charged. He is partially to blame for my lack of writing (I like to blame things on him even though he encourages me to foster my interests). It feels a little weird to write for fun.
But. I really want to change that. So I need to get back in the saddle.
Anyway, the first half of the year was great. Awesome, I should say. I’m still at SocialChorus, which has grown in leaps and bounds since I started working there in 2012. It really feels like I have worked at several different companies, each better than the last. It feels super exciting to be a part of something that’s growing at this speed.
After over two years of working on our blogger programs, I’ve moved on to a different role at the company doing email marketing and I’ve been really liking it.
Otherwise, I’m having a great time with the dude. He’s similar to me in that he loves to venture around and try new things and already we’ve driven through most of California (north and south), and gone to Portland and Vegas. He’s also teaching this city girl how to be less of a nature wuss. But it’s a process. Yesterday we went hiking and I was scared to use the park bathroom because I thought there’d be a “Creature” hiding in the toilet.
You can take the girl out of Brooklyn, but you can’t take the Brooklyn out of the girl…But I really do love to be out there! I can’t believe I’ve lived here for so long and have never ventured to Mt Tam, but I haven’t gotten in touch with my inner jock ever.
I’m still training for a marathon in October, but my half-marathon I did in Washington last month really wore me out, so honestly I have fallen off the wagon the past two weeks. This is the last time I get to slack so the next three months are going to be about building more endurance. I am really good at sticking to the long runs, but the day to day stuff is where I slack. And so, I’m going to face my worst enemy: the TREADMILL.
Another great thing about the dude is he is very into sports and always has a sports quote or anecdote and is very supportive of my marathon training.
What else? I bought some honest-to-goodness adult furniture. I went to CES. I’ve consumed many amazing meals. I’ve taken 45938493048q3903290 photos of the ocean on my phone.
I am pretty thrilled with how things are going.
And, I am going to try to write more. Promise.
