thirty-somethings

life in all its glory

challenge: week 1

My challenge is already off to a rocky start. Soon after my post on the first, I got the flu. Apparently it’s going around. I can’t even remember the last time I’ve ever been that sick. It started with problems with my asthma, then the flu, then it turned into some respiratory infection. It took me nearly two weeks to become a functioning human being again. Soon after, I started school and my internship again. 

With that being said, I’m a little behind and trying to play catch up! I’ll get there eventually. For week 1, I visited a champagne brunch restaurant in downtown LA with my friend to meet some guy she had been talking to. A friend of his was supposed to meet us there, was it a double date? I’m not sure. But it sure made me feel a little uncomfortable going. The friend ended up not showing up which was awesome for me! Meeting a couple random dudes and a new champagne brunch restaurant, does that count as two things?? 

Anyways, I hope this year started off a bit better for everybody else! I’m looking forward to the new things I’ll be trying out. There’s already one in progress! But it’s a surprise.

new year and new beginnings

Hello everyone! 

It has been a very long time since my last post. So sorry I’ve been lagging. I officially finished my first semester of graduate school. I finished with a 3.66 GPA. It’s not perfect but I’m still so proud of myself for not only getting accepted into one of the top graduate schools in the nation but also SURVIVE! I’ve made great new friends and I’ve learned so much about myself along this journey so far. Being in this program has been so incredibly challenging but I have loved every moment of it. Well maybe not the all nighters I had to pull a couple of times. 

One of my new years resolution is to start blogging on a regular basis again. With that being said, I’m going to be taking part of a 52 week challenge. It was my sisters idea last year so I can’t take credit for it. I will be trying something new every week. So by the end of the year…I’ll have tried 52 new things!! Pretty cool, right? I’m excited. 

I will attempt to document my journey with pictures and stories. I’m really looking forward to this. 

Anyways, I hope everyone’s year is off to a good start. Mine was pretty shitty but I’m not going to let that stop me in keeping my head up. This year will be a great year and I will keep reminding myself of that. 

HAPPY NEW YEARS! May this year bring you lots of love, happiness, and success.
