  1. Whoo hoo!

    I am so ready for this 7-13 month job search to be OVER!! I am feeling so emotionally exhausted. Anyway, on to the good news...

    1) This morning I received an offer from the company I am currently contracting with (I will call them Company A). I knew this was coming today, because they told me last Wednesday. The only thing is, I really don't think I want to work for this company (but I might end up having to). The offer is also A LOT less than what I would have needless ...

  2. A week on the ranch (January 1 - January 9, 2011)

  4. New Year's Resolutions

    I enjoy thinking about and implementing New Year's resolutions. I've learned to not be too rigid with my resolutions, but to allow some flexibility. I do this not only with my resolutions, but with other goals I make throughout the year as well.

    Last year, I focused on being more consistent with working out (not taking large chunks of time off) and I am proud of myself for staying pretty consistent. I joined a couple of running groups and that helped me to keep up my fitness. ...
