Holy cow!

Wow, I’ve been at my new job for almost a month and I can’t believe summer is over. Keeping up with life outside if work is somewhat difficult but now that I’ve adjusted to it. I actually enjoy being an adult. Not having homework or other tedious tasks to do on a regular basis makes me realize how much time there is in a day. If the weather were better it would make me more motivated to do more.

My rowing race this past weekend was canceled due to weather and my next is in October after my 8k. I played a few ultimate games in the past month. The most reccent without a sub, so that was both a work out and a challenge. Eventhough my team hasn’t won, we’ve improved leaps and bounds each game which makes me want to get in better shape. Sticking to my training schedule has been hard since the weather has been horrible. But now that my 8k race is getting closer I realize I need to workout or else I will disappoint myself. That’s the beauty of running, it’s you against the clock. No teammates, no excuses, just you and competing against yourself.

Canada here I come!



It’s official


I start my new job on Tuesday!  At this moment, I couldn’t be happier, but there have been some ups and downs.

Transitioning from college graduate to unemployed recent graduate was hard. Not having many friends in Seattle and figuring out what I wanted to do with my life put me in a bad mood. I realized I needed to put myself out there and find a job.  After many rejections and no follow ups after interviews, I realized that perseverance and determination will help me get through the process. Looking back on it, this is just the beginning. Even during my job I will have challenges I have to overcome and the lessons I’ve learned through job searching will help me along the way.

Now, I just need to keep rehabing my ankle and train for an 8K in October.
