It's been a long while since I've updated here! As you may have noticed, my running is a bit off. Well, it's like, super off. It's so off that I'm sleeping with my running gear on so that when I get up tomorrow morning it's the first thing I do! I've only logged 5 runs … Continue reading Hired by Amazon, Moving to Seattle, Learning Ruby/Rails, And Other Good Things
Happy Tuesday, folks! I've gotten a flurry of Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ love for my birthday last week. Thanks again for your outpouring of love and support, especially all I've gone through this last year. It means the world to me. So, on to the title of my post. Pretty loaded, huh? Well, it's the … Continue reading I’m 28 and I Don’t Know What I’m Doing With My Life…Still
Woah, where did February go?! There's only 15 more days until the LA Marathon. Good news is that I wrapped up my fundraising. I can't believe that I was able to reach the $1,000 fundraising requirement. Honestly, that seemed more out of reach than the actual 26.2 miles! Special thanks to the landslide of friends … Continue reading Marathon Countdown: 15 Days, 60-hour Workweeks
Time is surreal. It's a manmade concoction with which we rule our lives. Some people say time is money, time is life, life is money. Some people never have enough time to finish a project, pursue their dreams, or spend with their loved ones. I say that if you don't have enough time in your … Continue reading Don’t Have Time? Make It.
Just in case you didn't quite follow along, productivity is inversely related to daytime hours and is compounded by caffeine. At least it is for me. I've always believed that the daytime is meant for living. You know, experiencing the world, meeting people, soaking up the sunshine. It has always seemed counterintuitive that people slaved … Continue reading Productivity = Daytime^(-1) * Caffeine
I love what I do. I love it, I love it, I love it. It is days like today that I thank the starry sky above that I've been blessed with the brains, determination, and opportunity to pursue my passions fearlessly. Last night I slept when I wanted to. This morning, I woke up when I … Continue reading The Best Way To Motivate Every Creative
In my last post, I went at great lengths to detail exactly HOW to set goals. It might seem a bit self-explanatory but I've worked with a lot of people who are just plain overwhelmed and don't know where to start. If you are one of those people, hopefully my suggestions helped! So, we've established … Continue reading 4 Steps To Making Your Goals More Achievable
I make lists all of the time: lists of things to do, places to see, what to accomplish. But, what I haven't done in awhile is put together a strategy of how to get there. (My idea of long-term planning is making dinner reservations at the end of the week.) Most of what I've done … Continue reading Find Success By Setting Goals
I've always loved dressing up. For some girls, that means whoring out or dressing skanky. For me, it's always meant sophisticated/business casual. I grew up wanting to dress older than I actually was because I wanted to be taken seriously. In high school I was that annoying girl who really wanted to wear cardigans, slacks, … Continue reading Getting Dressed For Work Is Kind Of A Big Deal
A young up and coming star in the start-up world recently confessed to me that he hated networking. I sighed (with great relief on the inside) told him to join the club. I've been to mixers, networking events, tweetups, meetups, etc -- all in the name of being more social. When you're tethered to your … Continue reading I Hate Networking!
