On who I am right now


I am …

… in a little bit of a shock that May is almost over. I mean, seriously, where did this month first half of the year go?

… totally in love with my new sandals (and they’re comfortable, too. Double-win!)

… thankful for some new connections that have slowly but surely grown into friendships over the last couple of months.

… always super-happy when I find a letter or card from someone in my mailbox. If you want to know the way to my heart, send me snail mail and you’ll be my bff for life!

… looking forward to spending the weekend in Southern California. I’ll (hopefully) go thrift-shopping with my MIL, meet with a new friend, go to the beach and just have a good time. Sometimes I really miss living in West LA. J and I had a good time there and I loved being so close to Santa Monica and the beach.

… curious what everyone else thinks about the book “MWF seeks BFF” by Rachel Bertsche, which we will be discussing at the Stratejob Bookclub meeting on Monday. I can say as much as that I could very much relate to Rachel’s endeavor to find new friends in a new city. It’s not the easiest thing to do once we’re out of school/college. In fact, it turns out to be quite hard.

… missing my niece and nephew a lot. My sister keeps sending me these adorable pictures and videos and I just realize every single time how much I am missing out on. Sigh. Can’t wait for our next skype session (hopefully) next week!

… stoked about Baseball season. (Go, Red Sox!)

… getting into the new HBO series “Veep”. First we thought it to be a bit silly, but now it’s been kind of growing on J and I. We’ll keep watching for now.

… hating a little bit of miscommunication that I had with a friend due to ‘cut-off’ text messages, missed phone calls and stupid assumptions. Always talk it out, peeps. It’s much better than letting bad feelings fester.

… happy to see my little potted vegetable garden grow. I am a total newbie to gardening and I really hope that something will come off it. I’ve been taking pictures of the progress (I am only in week 3 so far, so there is not much to see yet), which I will share at a later point.

ridiculously excited about a trip to New England that is in the works for this summer. It’s been long overdue! We’re going to see some friends that we haven’t seen in a couple of years and then we’re also going to go up to Boston (my favorite city in the whole wide world!).


  1. Super cute sandals! I used to read Rachel’s blog, because we share the same city, but stopped reading it after a while when it became clear she wasn’t interested in making personal connections (wait, did I tell you that already?!). And you must tell me when you’re going to be in Boston, because we’re going to Cape Cod this summer and I might be able to get to Boston if there was good reason to be there. =)

    I love that skirt – and the fact that it has pockets! I am all about dresses and skirts with pockets!

    I am currently…

    – feeling guilty that I won’t be going to my parents’ lake cabin over memorial day weekend as that means I miss my brother and his family’s visit home. They said they understand that I need to stay home and study but I still feel bad as I haven’t seen them since thanksgiving :(

    – thankful for the friendships in my life – including my friendship with you! I am lucky to have so many wonderful people in my life that care about me, encourage me, and believe in me.

    – so tired. I just need a solid 10 hours of sleep. But my body won’t let me sleep in, even on weekends.

    – looking forward to my long vacation in July. I will spend a long weekend at my parents’ lake home and then fly to british Columbia for amber’s wedding :)

  3. Where on the East Coast you going before Boston?

  4. I love the Red Sox too! I have a game there next week I think.

    but HOLD UP…. YOU ARE GOING TO BE IN NEW ENGLAND?!?! WHERE? WHEN? Can we make a get together happen? This could be incredible! Email me!

  5. You’re going to be on this side of the country? Oh tell me when and I’ll meet you for lunch or tea or anything!!!

  6. Um, I’m sorry. I thought you said Go Red Sox? You meant Giants. I know, sometimes mistakes happen. Wow, it seems like you have a fun summer planned — LA, Back East, your garden! I love Boston; my Mom’s family and my boyfriend are from there, so I go often. It’s a great town! When will you be there? Maybe I will be there too!

  7. Allerdings sehr schöne Sandalen:-)

  8. Love those sandals and New England? Awesomeness! Hugs xxx

  9. The first thing I thought when I started reading this post was “Where did those sandals come from?” So cute!

    I love Boston, too. I used to live in Rhode Island and we spent a lot of time in Boston. It is such a wonderful city.

    I miss my nieces and nephew so much! They live back in DC so I don’t get to see them very often. But I’m going there in 2 weeks! So excited.

  10. Nice sandals! I seriously can’t believe how fast this first half of the year is going either. Wasn’t it JUST Christmas? Goodness. I mean, I’m happy it’s summer don’t get me wrong. But the older I get the faster time goes!!

    It must be so hard with your niece and nephew so far away. I can’t even imagine only seeing my nephew through Skype. I wish family could be teleported over at any moment! I’ve always wanted to pick up and move far away but I think it’s my family that has always been a restraint for me personally. Who knows though, maybe one day I’ll be traveling the world and saying hello to them from afar, too!

  11. So sad that you’re visiting Boston just after I’ve gone!

  12. Love Boston! Have a grand old time, my friend!

  13. I am SO excited for baseball. We’ve got a little minor league team here who has made me fall in love with baseball.
