I ventured to San Diego for a getaway with my college roommates, Kira and Amanda. It was our first annual trip together since we can no longer rely on multiple weddings every summer to reunite. We ate, endured the heat wave, and napped. Ideal? Yes.
This is my first week after leaving work. Since my lineup of speech path volunteering gigs and fall quarter classes won’t start till September, I found myself with some good ole fashion time off. What have I been up to? Errands, socializing, the apartment hunt, and lighthearted reading. In other words, here’s a half-hearted attempt at justifying my post-work existence.
Four years ago, I moved to Chicago with my best friends for a one-year adventure after graduation. Here’s a secret: I actually started a blog so I could document the experience and process everything I would learn. I wrote exactly one entry (spoiler: I hadn’t even left the Bay Area yet). Determined not to make the same mistake twice, I’m taking steps to set myself up for success this time.
