Wow, once again I’ve been an awful blogger. I’m catching up on all that this week though…really! Writing and reading. I’ve been posting a lot over at my new Tumblr, but I’m definitely not abandoning my blogger. Tumblr has just been conducive to my current lifestyle; I can randomly post what I want/when I want. For some reason, writing on blogger seems like more of a commitment and something that needs to be thought out. And I really haven’t had much time to think lately. But I love blogger, and I especially love all the people here (that includes all you Word Press users!) and miss the interaction with you all.
On the bright side, the reason I’ve been so busy is mainly because I started another freelance job, which I LOVE. I think I finally found what Sara refers to as my “genius zone,” except I am in no way a genius at it yet. Basically it’s tech writing and I’ll give more details as it progresses, but for now, I’ve been learning so much and it’s been awesome. And I’ve never been sucked into something so quickly before. Right now it’s a part-time freelance job, but I spend a lot more than my required hours immersing myself in it because I want to learn as much as I can. It’s a hard field to break into, but I think there are lots of opportunities. My boss paid me to go see Lisa Stone (founder of BlogHer) speak at Harvard last week and she gave a great presentation. I think I want to talk more about this later, so stay tuned.
My boss at my other freelance job also wants me to start my dating/relationship blog, so I’ll send along the link when that’s up. Should be interesting as my dating/relationship life is pretty much non-existent right now. We’re gonna have to dig into the archives until something exciting comes along.
I spent Saturday/Sunday with my parents and it was really great. My mom and I went to lunch at the Met Club on Saturday and then spent some time at Home Goods. Today was spent just hanging out with the parents, doing laundry, and relaxing. The Easter Bunny brought me some fun stuff like a pretty pink rug, new pink sheets, a pastry bag set, and other fun stuff. Then tonight my mom randomly told me she’d buy me a vacuum. Nina’s broke about 6 months ago and I’ve basically been cleaning my dust-bunnies with a broom. Not OK. She told me to pick one out and order it, so I did and I am MORE than excited! Yay for cleaning.
The up-coming week involves a lot of work and tons of Google Reader catching up and commenting. Hope you all had happy Easters and I’ll be checking in soon
