Long Time No Blog

Let’s skip straight to the point and list the highlights because to say I’ve been neglecting my followers (hey, Mom!) would be an egregious understatement.

  • Starting last Thanksgiving, visited my friend Rachel in Michigan whom I met while I was studying abroad (had to give a shoutout here because I never wrote a proper post on my trip!)
  • Had a great holiday season filled with Christmas cookies and family
  • Went to Paris with my mom and rang in 2014 my new favorite way: in a different country
  • Moved to NYC (well, Brooklyn, but I work in the city)
  • Began a music management internship at Brick Wall Management (our biggest active clients are Gungor, The Clarks, Vanessa Carlton, William Fitzsimmons, and Cherry Poppin’ Daddies – look ’em all up)

In between the big stuff my life has looked like this:

nyc update2

  • Got sick in Paris and subsequently stayed home much more than I would have liked
  • Visited NY for two days, looked at eight apartments, and picked one before bussing back home to pack up and officially move one week later (fast turnaround for sure)
  • Scoured DIY sites and photos for decorating my new room (all this did was make me want to decorate an entire apartment for which I do not have the funds)
  • Watched to completion a few more TV shows on Netflix (this is simultaneously my favorite time waster and probably the reason I do not have a boyfriend)
  • Hanging out at home now means also getting to know my four roommates: Shanti, Jimmy, Sonny, and Tommy – we get along well and bonus, I’ve got an insta-friend group! Annnd we have a dog, a poodle named Godis (pronounced goo-dis, Swedish for “candy”)
  • Pretended to train for my impending 10k by laying in bed with my eyes closed thinking really hard about the race
  • Seen an influx in my wedding pins for reasons unbeknownst to me
  • Waiting for warm weather
  • Wrote my first rent check (yowza)
  • Mastered Explored the metro
  • Preparing for our Chinese New Year party tomorrow night (and by preparing I mean making a feast, and by making a feast I mean watching while everyone else does the actual cooking part)

And the things I need to do look like this:

  • Find a paying job so I can afford to write more rent checks
  • Meet some more people and learn how to make friends again
  • Actually train for my 10k
  • Explore Brooklyn and the city (this is why I need warmer weather)
  • Laundry at a laundromat where they don’t take student IDs as money or have eSuds

Ironically, the less I have going on in my life the more blog posts I write, and the more I have going on in my life the less I make time to write about it all. It is here my dad would say C’est la vie.
