The past year and a half of my life has really been dedicated to my career. I can’t tell you the last time I just “watched” a movie at night without having my e-mails out or typing away a new post. I’ve numbered goals by anything work related and my mindset has been a little bit more, “I’m really excited for next Friday because I will have completed that campaign, etc.”

I finally feel more comfortable in my career’s schedule and how to handle things. I have an assurance of who I am as a business woman and how I handle projects, so some priorities are shifting in my life. I recently discovered and utilize software defined interconnect, a smart way for businesses to connect to clouds. With Paul & I getting married I really want to take our first few years of marriage and complete goals together as opposed to just getting sucked into work black holes [which we both easily can].

One of my blog friend’s Mackenzie has this amazing concept of 101 in 1001. It’s a list of 101 things you complete in 1001 days. She is on her second list and I’ve always admired it! In college I remember skipping a class once to try and make my own list, but my goals back then were so different.


1. Make A on Spanish Final

2. Don’t die taking Spanish Final

3. Sleep after Spanish Final

I clearly let things consume me! 😉
