Life has been flying for me. Has it for you?? It's almost March! Are you kidding?! Don't get me wrong. I am beyond thrilled for March (St. Paddy's Day celebrations, friends' Birthdays...), April (Easter, CARDS OPENING DAY...), May (warmer weather (!!!), parties and BBQs...), June (weddings, a week-long trip to see the Cards in TORONTO!)... Aaaand so the excitement goes... month after month. Man. So many things to look forward to! It's just hard to believe the second month of 2010 is almost over!
So, let's see. What's new? Last Wednesday-Saturday, I was in D.C. for work. My first work trip, haaaay! I went to a conference with over 10,000 people. Since I'm the "Collegians Director" of our organization, I was in charge of promoting our collegians conference this summer... which turned into literally hundreds of mini conversations... over 3 days. Seriously.Exhausting. This job is stretching me. I meannn... in a good way. Today, I used some basic html to format an e-mail. ...And I never thought I'd use ANY coding knowledge from that old "Interactive Media I" class! Haa... I'm sure my teachers would all get a good kick out of how much knowledge I'm actually using from their classes. "I told you so." Yeah yeah... haha.
Despite how life is flying... and I have so much to look forward to... I'll be honest. I'm kinda tired. Just in general. Of the routine. As a freshman in the "real world," I'm beginning to really miss those trusty breaks we always had as students. I've really only had off Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and New Years Day so far... Just those 4 days since I started working 8 months ago. Not to whine or anything. I'm just getting antsy for my trips coming up. They're a ways off, in June and July, but still... it will be so nice to have several days off in a row. It's fine. Part of being an "adult," right? Riiiiight.
Ok. It's 11 pm and I am exhausted. Another sign that I am no longer the stay-up-till-2am-every-night girl I used to be! (The weekends are a different story... ha.) But really... I'm learning that it pays to take care of yourself. You know... eat healthy, workout, actually get 8 hours of sleep a night. Brilliant, huh? It only took me 23 years!
