Why the bloggy silence in the last week and a half?

Wednesday, October 5, 2011

I don't know how many regular readers I really have anymore, but for those left: sorry for the radio silence going here the last week and a half!  I did really well with posting the week before, but I was craaaazy busy all of last week and could not find the time.

Why was I so busy, you ask?

Because I was in Portland!  (And Seattle, but that was really only for about 38 hours).

And let me tell you guys, I am in love with that city.  Like...I mean, I'll always love San Diego. It's so ingrained into my heart and soul I couldn't ever not love it.  But Portland has definitely edged its way up there.  To the point where I am heavily considering moving there - and if not really, I will be job searching up there. And if an opportunity comes up, I have absolutely no problem taking it.

Once I get my pictures uploaded I'll talk more about the city and how wonderful and personable and weird and beautiful it is, but for now I will sneak peak you with this (and if you are my friend IRL, you've seen this via my Facebook):



Beautiful. Just beautiful.

We just landed back in SD Tuesday night around 11pm, so this has been my first day back and I'm trying to clear up all the things I've missed and get back into my routine.  And predictably, I came down with a crazy head cold while there, so I am still residually sick from that.  I'm trying my best to get over it, but my voice belies the health. As does my sniffly nose and cough.  It doesn't help that it's cold and rainy in San Diego, so it's all just under the weather. (pun!)

I am back to regularly scheduled programming though - not that I had any regular schedule, but at least some sort of regularity on this blog. And hopefully a nice layout change to go with it soon, as well as some new content. I've been considering including a hobby of mine that I've been kind of hiding (but not really, if you follow my twitter and see these tweets) on this blog, but was always a bit hesitant to. Not that I'm ashamed of it (because who is ashamed of nail polish?) but because way back when I was a real blogger with real posts on my really real active blog, the majority of my readers were boys. And there are few things I can think of that will make men hit "mark as read" faster than a post about my nail polish of the week.

But hey. My blog, my rules, right?  So...it'll come!

Anyway. I am now off to finally finish my work packet (even though I quit more than 3 weeks ago...ugh. That's a whole other blog entry) and trudge home in the rain.  I hope everyone has been wonderful the past couple weeks!

About Me

My photo
I'm fairly obsessed with penguins, Peanuts (the comic), and the TV show Friends. Parentheses may or may not be (over)used in this blog, and books will pretty much be the only thing I ever talk about because they are my One True Love.
