Hello! Wow it has been a while since I’ve last blogged. As you probably know, I got a new job in a city half way across the country.
The company wanted me to do orientation in July instead of waiting until August so I agreed. What I didn’t realize is that they would want me to continue to train every single week thereafter. I’ve been doing a lot of flying back and forth between Philadelphia and Chicago, and I’m feeling stretched thin and overwhelmed.
That being said, I’m home this week and working from my kitchen. I need to be back for training on the 10th and the 17th. Instead of hopping back and forth on a plane, I’m moving in with friends this weekend! I know, so quick, right?
I think needless to say but my stress levels are through the roof! Now only is all this travel pretty hard on a person but also the fact that I feel like I’m being ripped away from home. Maybe it is like a band-aid. The faster I pull it off, the less it hurts? I don’t think so but it is what it is. I am happy to have found a job in a field closely related to my studies. I just wish I had more than 4 days to pack and move.
Since I’ve spent the last 3 weeks in Chicago, you know I have tons of stuff to talk about! But no time to compose anything, so expect to see some restaurant recaps and hotel reviews popping up here and there. I have got some great material! All those fancy restaurants in downtown Chicago were amazing!
Also, once I am moved and settled, I hope to find a good routine and get back into my fitness. I will update you all as soon as I have a plan. I’m not sure yet if I will be exercising from home or getting a gym membership once I move. Like I said, I’m moving in with friends (actually my friend’s parents!). I’ll have to get into a sort of routine with them and how things work there. I’ll be staying there for a few months while I figure out where I want to live and all that. Rob is going to move out once I find a place for us and the kitties!
Okay wow, that was a lot of text and lack of pictures for one post. I just know it has been a while since I said hello! I promise the next post will be more fun and less functional
