Hey all, I can’t believe it’s already been a couple months since I last wrote a blog! I meant to write a few a week, but I got a second part-time job, and I’ve been so busy lately. This time last year I was getting ready to defend my thesis for my master’s thesis! Oh, how things change. Anyway, I’ve been planning a lot for my wedding in June. Just a few details left…picking out the songs has been one of the hardest parts!
I updated our website with our engagement photos, story of how we met, details of the event, and of course, our registry. We’re doing a nontraditional registry called a honeyfund because we would both like to go to the east coast. My fiancé is originally from there, and I’ve always wanted to go there. We’re flying into NYC, driving up through Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Maine, and driving down through New Hampshire and Vermont back to Boston to fly back to Denver.
Right now I’m working part-time as a junior content manager at GoAbroad.com, and the contract ends the end of this month. It’s been great practicing my writing and editing muscles and learning about SEO. Here’s my lovely profile. I also started working as a caregiver for HomeInstead a couple months ago, and it’s taught me a lot about patience and compassion.
Other than that, I’ve been riding my bike and doing yoga as much as I can every week. My fiancé and I are still keeping up with our plant-based diet. Lately, we’ve been trying out quinoa apple salads, beet burgers, and veggie soups. Some days are harder than others to keep up with it, and we splurge every now and then on junk food. We’ve heard the first year to transitioning to it is the hardest, but we’re keeping on! I notice I feel a lot better and don’t get as many headaches from it as well.
I still definitely need to cut out more sugar!
My neighbor also let me borrow a book called The Name of the Wind and its sequel Wise Man’s Fear by Patrick Rothfuss. I read both of them. They’re about an orphan boy who learns how to be an arcanist (a wizard) in a supernatural world. If you like Harry Potter, I’m pretty sure you would like these books, too. The third one should come out soon, and I’m excited to read it!
I probably won’t have much time to read in the next few months with planning a wedding, honeymoon, and working. This month is also filled with family birthdays including mine (yay #26). Well, I suppose aging is a privilege as my grandpa liked to say.
Thank you for reading!
