So many times in the last two months I meant to get on here and write a post. Over Christmas I wanted to write about the cynical attitude I had adopted. In the beginning of December I meant to post an update about my new (and awesome job).
But I didn’t do either of those things. I’ve just been so busy. So now that I’ve made my way over here, I ought to fill you in on how life has been.
First, job update. I am now an editorial intern at VentureBeat, a technology and business blog. And its awesome. Better than I could have hoped. I finally feel like I am on the path to what I want. Not that freelancing wasn’t a blast — it was. But its nice to have a stable day job that is fun and exciting.
Second, as is par for course in the new year, I’ve created resolutions. Well, sort of. See, I really hate new years resolutions. Like many Americas, I don’t keep them. They die before ever seeing February.
So this year I have goals, one of which is to organize my digital life (and hopefully write a post about how I did it). I follow so many blogs and websites and forums that the constant stream of content has become overwhelming and stressful. I should want to read all the great blogs I follow, not feel obligated to. I intend to clean out my Google Reader and Reddit Feeds, and my two messy email accounts.
My other goal is to indulge my inner child, something I rarely do. I’d go into more detail, but that’s a whole other post worth of stuff.
Oh, and I intend to join a gym (gasp). I really hate to admit that because I feel that writing it sets me up for failure, but I lack muscle strength and I want to get stronger. Not thinner, not lighter, not more toned. I want to be strong and healthy. If I focus on obtaining a flat stomach or weighing less, I am destined to get upset when I don’t the results I want and I will likely stop going to the gym. But if I focus on making a healthier lifestyle choice, hopefully I will see the value in exercising and stick with it.
Well that’s what I’ve been up to and where I intend to go. Until next time…
