June 19 – July 4

Happy Independence Day!

The last few weeks have flown by. Work is going great! My summer project is very high impact and very visible. So far I’m loving it (and Facebook). My team works pretty hard, but it is because our work really matters. Also, the walking path on the roof of my building is A+


Healthy, meatless eating is going just as well as was expected. I don’t get to eat any of the foods I like and, because I am not a fan of vegetables without cheese or meat (even as a garnish on a salad), I’ve been mostly carb-loading which also sucks for my waistline. Still, I know it’s the right decision in the long-run.


On a personal note, Ry and I are doing well. He is dragging me to LA next weekend to speak with his jeweler about my engagement ring. I say ‘dragging’ because I explicitly asked to NOT be involved in any part of the ring (I want Ryan to pick it out and surprise me). But he really didn’t feel comfortable with that :/

I am also a little worried about what moving out to the Bay will mean for my social life (if that’s what I decide to do – still don’t know yet). Ryan will of course want me to be in San Jose (and I DO want to be with him), but I really don’t like his house and it really is too far from everything and everyone else I care about.

That’s pretty much it for now. By next post, I should have heard back from VP (the writing workshop I applied to). Wish me luck 🙂
