[Rainbow flatties on a road trip.]Loving my job. Never did I think there'd be a time in my life where I'd wake up and go to an office where I would sit in front of a Mac with a pencil and a sketchbook to design mobile apps. But that's what I'm doing, and I couldn't be happier or feel more proud. I wear heels every day and I have a few really cool bosses and some awesome new friends, too. That's like the cherry on top of an awesome professional ice cream sundae.
Reading Les Miserables by Victor Hugo. Still. It's really long. But it's beautiful and I intend to stick with it. I took a break to read Megan Mayhew Bergman's collection of stories, Birds of a Lesser Paradise, recently, and I'll be writing a review of it for Drawl Magazine really soon.
Watching nothing, really. I recently caught up with Game of Thrones, and I was watching a lot of the Olympics, but that's all over now. I have quite a few episodes of True Blood to catch up on and I hope to do that soon.
Thinking about how bizarre it is to be done with my thesis. And still thinking about how awesome you all were when I wrote about it here. Love and support is awesome, especially when you've spent a year pouring your heart and mind into something that matters so much to you.
Anticipating Rob's move to Northern Virginia this weekend. I know it sounds weird, but I kind of want to just get it over with already so that we can figure out what our routine is going to be. I don't know when we're going to talk on the phone or what time he's going to wake up, and it makes me kind of anxious. We've been two hours apart for a year before, but this is four hours and we're both going to be busy. I think I'll feel better once we've just jumped into it and can start planning fun weekends together.
Wishing that my best friend Emma were currently living in Roanoke. She's in town for a few days and she came over last night to do a CrossFit WOD with me and it was so wonderful. I miss being in the same city! She's wonderful and I love the way we just pick back up as if there's been no time lost between us. It's a blessing to have a friend like that.
Making me happy that another dear friend of mine, Amanda, had a sweet baby boy over the weekend, and while he initially had some complications, he seems to be doing just fine now and will hopefully be going home soon! Amanda and I were best friends in high school and somehow lost touch with each other over the years. I feel so honored to be part of her life again and have the opportunity to watch her beautiful little family grow. She's a wonderful woman and mother and she and her husband give me so much hope.
So what about you? What are you up to currently?
