I had every intention of getting a blog post up yesterday, but it just didn’t happen. Life has been pretty busy lately during the week and on the weekends, so I’m beyond ready for this long Fourth of July weekend ahead! I made it a point to not plan too much this weekend because I have a lot on my to-do list at home (including catching up on blogging things) and just really want some quality time with my couch and new 4th gen Apple TV!
But since I’ve been a little more absent on social media and the blogosphere this past week (I’ll be catching up on post reading and commenting this weekend), I wanted to check in and chat about what I’ve been up to in my life lately. So here goes.
Celebrated a Birthday
Last weekend I celebrated my 26th birthday! It was a great day and as birthday celebrations usually go, I ate entirely WAY too much food. I received some pretty awesome gifts as well. My two favorites were a one-time cleaning service from my parents (I’ve been talking about needing a deep clean done forever) and an Apple Watch from Ted (I’ll be reviewing it – along with the new Apple TV – once I’ve spent a little more time with it)!
Orange is the New Black season 4 hit Netflix a few weeks ago and I got through the season pretty quickly, as usual. Another one I’ve been watching? Bloodline! I saw bits and pieces of it last year when I visited my college bestie, Kerry, in NYC, not long after it was released. Since it’s basically a TV drought in the summer, Ted and I decided to start from the beginning and have already made it a few eps into season 2. The family the show follows is CRAZY. 100% beyond dysfunctional, filled with drama, and includes lots of sketchiness. Obviously we can’t get enough of it.
Did Lots of School Stuff
I’m only taking one course in my graduate certificate program this summer, but it’s a lengthy one, and has been pretty challenging and time-consuming. Basically, economics kind of makes my head spin. But I’m happy to report that I’m doing very well in it so far and have made it well past the halfway point. Just 3 more weeks to go! I’m also looking into transitioning fully into an MBA program, so preparing for that has been taking up quite a bit of time as well.
Got a Big Promotion
The timing couldn’t be more perfect on this one. It happened early last week, at the start of my birthday week! Talk about a fabulous week of celebrations. This ended up being much bigger than I originally expected, so I’m pretty excited about this climb up the ladder.
So that’s what’s been going on with me lately! Tell me, what’s been going on with you? Do you have any fun plans for the long weekend ahead? Travel plans for the summer?
Have a safe and wonderful Fourth of July weekend! I’ll see you back here next week!
