Hello, world! I haven’t posted in awhile but trust me, it’s completely excusable and hopefully soon I’ll be back to annoying you with the details of my life you never needed (or wanted) to know.
In the past week I…
- Worked the last day at a job I truly loved and said good-bye to all my people
- Packed up most of my belongings
- Dealt with annoying car trouble
- Went to Mexico for a 3 day weekend getaway with Brittany and friends
- Started a brand new job upon returning from Mexico
- Moved my life up to Encinitas
So yeah, it’s been a busy ass week to say the least.
Mexico was basically the most fabulous budget-friendly getaway with girlfriends I could ever imagine. We stayed in a beautiful house with ocean views for days in Las Gaviotas, a gated community just south of Rosarito. The cost was so insignificant that it’s actually kind of ridiculous. Every house in the community has a view of the ocean because of the way they’re built upwards, like a stadium, and everyone has access to a large shared pool, hot tub and private beach.
We laid on the beach, floated on a giant raft in the ocean, ate lobster in the nearby town of Puerto Nuevo and went out for a night of drinks, dancing and a fabulous karaoke performance by yours truly (which Brittany has footage of for future blackmail). It was a total blast and I highly recommend making a trip down there if you’re in southern California. I felt like we made out like bandits with our sweet little house and awesome rooftop but apparently that’s just standard.
This past Monday was my first day at my new workplace which always tends to be equal amounts anxiety and excitement. This situation is no different but luckily my team is pretty wonderful. The first three months are usually the roughest and I always feel completely clueless. I just have to remind myself that’s normal and it’s a positive thing because I am being challenged. It also doesn’t hurt that I have an office with not one, but TWO windows and the ocean is just down the street. Did I mention I also live a mile and a half from my office?
I moved basically everything on Wednesday after work and I am getting all settled in up in Encinitas. I struck gold with my apartment and roommate situation. She’s truly incredible. I came home from work today to her baking cookies and then tweeting along with me while I co-hosted a Twitter party. When I finished my run tonight, I had a bowl of her homemade chicken noodle soup. Yeah, I know. Pinch me.
And this is my new running route…
I think it is totally appropriate to end with the hashtag #blessed. Goodnight, y’all!
