Monday- first day of work, went to Nathan’s house
Tuesday- work, Game 6 at Dave and Busters-
Wednesday- work but it was Nathan’s day off and he spent the night hanging out with Dillon and I was suppose to come over to meet Aunt Doris but was working. I hung out with Eduardo and he took me wine tasting at Noir. And then we went to In n Out.
Thursday- game 7!! Work. Nathan came over and we made up (we got in a big fight which I don’t want to discuss again) We won! I hung out with Irene and then we went to old town and jakes diner
Friday- work, errands, Kiss my Bundt baking class (accenture women’s social) – our group made Irish Creme and chocolate chips with a Mint American buttercream frosting. The other group did a banana bourbon bundt cake. The chef was very informative. Nathan came over late and we passed out.
Saturday- busy! I was suppose to go rock climbing with irene and Casey an I didn’t but went to the rose bowl instead and struggled through a run in the heat. Then went to bobbys for urth cafe. Afterwards wedid a fathers day celebration at Gourmet Island (omg yum!!) It was Nathan and mine’s 9th anniversary but he got back so late and was so tired that we just decided to postpone a celebration and get a fathers day gift for his dad instead. I was slightly disappointed but I understand why someone would require so much sleep now.
Sunday- woke up, worked out, got dressed for a Sunday brunch at the green raven with Irene, Barbara, mei and a few of their friends (all super nice). They went to go watch satc2 and Irene and I walked around opt town briefly. The. I went to Bella’s birthday party where it was more of an adult party than a kid’s one but it was fun and the monkey cupcakes were great although I chose to only make them.
This past week I have been a food and a money glutton!!
Food- DB for the game on Tuesday, Wednesday wine tasting and fries, Thursday- food all day and had a burger at Jakes! Friday- bundt cakes and sweets, saturday- fancy coffees and Chinese food, Sunday- brunch and bellas bday.
I feel sooo gross!’ not to mention that my expenses this week were over $300 (fathers day gift, Nathan gift, Bella gift, food food food) eels I feel bad about spending anything extra especially on food (when I don’t care that much) when we are trying to save for our apartment.
I need to get over it. I use to do this last year without even blinking on traveling trips or shoppig trips. But somehow a trip to Paris or Barcelona seemedore worth it.
Anyway so let’s talk about friends. One of my main worries in moving away is that I won’t see my friends as often. Pasadena is as close to downtown LA as I’m interested in and I can’t do the Bobby or Mei thing where I want to live in the city and be able to walk to bars or clubs. Ok so they have access to really cool things but I’m more of an outdoorsy family suburban girl who still wants access to those things without having to face the occasional bum.
Things that make me feel better about the move to WC- we are closer to
Ashley, we are in the same city as Allen and Irene’s work, and Barbara too(found out today), we are kind of closer to Eduardo.
Well I won’t be driving too much so I can sacrifice the time and endure the drives and traffic to see friends.
I am a bit nervous about moving in seeing as how I have to adjust to a new place during a time where I have a lot going on but I guess that’s a good thing because I like to be busy. It’s bad because it is another distraction.
Ok so one mile on the ellipitical doe and 20 minutes passed.
I will note the following on paper ad well- these are my work from home goals- be able to distinguish work from
Home and not work crazy hours, stay social somehow and sane with social activity, or use that loneliness I use to desire for creatvity purposes, get the apartment together, study my GMATs,
Do the business school thing, do not get fat, lose weight- plan my food,
Find hobbies(useful or lucrative). Omg oh and plan a wedding! Hah is that all?plan my career, my education, get my home together and a wedding going. Mmm easy! Lol! Oh and designate a workplace.
You know what’s funny- I am a self motivated person who is realizing that reality is not as idealistic or as fun as I thought it would be. There is a lot of stuff to do and it is easy to get distracted by quadrant three things.
This past week I struggled with work and being at home and being tired and I wasted a lot of time on pto and just chillin – I mean I worked from home almost the entire year so far (half a year) and I had 2 months off (one stressful) but a lot of things happened. I changed my job. I got engaged. I am super fit and healthy. I am moving out with my fiancé. I learned what was important to me. There is that intellectual inspiration missing but I will get it back.
Everything I have going in my life will keep me busy and when I am lonely r bored- I will be creative (and not sleep!!) goodness those two months ff messed me up-my body had a chance to experience lots of sleep and now it cares and requires it. Boo.
30 minutes into the elliptical. Okay tonight I will need to work and jot down my map and review my blog and documents for anything I missed.
