For anyone that recently started reading my blog, I've been republishing some older posts leading up to my journey. I'm republishing them here because they were originally published using Google Blogger which was not quite as follower-friendly as this blog here with WordPress. Hope you enjoy! Originally published 7/29/17. Evening folks; I've realized over the … Continue reading Tough Mudder was Really Tough
Originally published 7/22/17. Good evening folks! (Note: This was written over the course of Friday evening and Saturday). Typing up this post on my Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 while I wait for my friend Firdaus to come into Penn Station. She's flying here from Cali and will be spending the weekend with me. Her, … Continue reading Two Weeks Left!!
Originally published 5/21/17. May 20th - the day of the Harryman Triathlon at Harriman State Park. I had signed up for the Olympic distance triathlon last fall with full intention of competing.

Originally published 5/6/17. Evening readers. 🙂 Work has been super busy. The project I'm working on is beginning to wrap up which is going to be very fast.

Originally published 3/29/17. Good evening folks. Not too much to report since my last post regarding travel stuff. Personally, it's been an eventful month.

Originally published 3/4/17. So, slightly unexpected but... I set the date I'm leaving the US (for an extended temporary period) in stone yesterday! So now, the first two months of my world travel is all set! Paid for?...well, I'm getting there. I learned that Global Nomadic partners with Student Travel Association. So I thought why … Continue reading Slight Change of Plans (“Fiscally Sound”)
Originally published 2/25/17. Today has been quite a productive day... Headed to the gym at 10:30, swam my 35 laps (~half mile) in about 40-45 minutes. After that, I was in a group class for some conditioning with one of the trainers. Wow, that class kicked my tush! I always thought my legs were … Continue reading Gearing Up, Part 2
Originally published 2/11/17. Hey Everyone! It's been a while! It feels like a lot but also like nothing has happened over the last several weeks since my last post. What's new... I spent a long weekend at home a few weeks ago. I took a Monday and Friday off; went home Thursday night and … Continue reading Gearing Up, Part 1
Originally published 1/1/17. Today was pretty boring. It was my own fault I didn't have any plans made in advance. I could have done something outside; it was a sunny beautiful day. But I'm usually a hard-charging, gotta-go-gotta-run-gotta-work-can't-stop type of girl. Always busy, always doing something. Oh well, I do need to slow down … Continue reading Boring Day? Make Travel Plans!
Originally published on Google Blogger - 12/31/16. Last week, I was able to leave work at a generally reasonable time each day which was nice. I'm admittedly a workaholic. I've been working 50 +/- hour weeks regularly. Had a few 60+/- hour weeks thrown in there, and only one week working a total of 71 hours over … Continue reading Happy New Year!
