Well, guys…I GOT A CAR!!!!!!
There she is! Ain’t she a beaut?
As you can imagine, I was overflowing with joy and drunk on the freedom and independence my new-found wheels provided. Therefore, I’ve spent the last few weeks zooming around Indiana and Chicago, visiting friends, laughing at the depressed-looiking people I see car shopping, and NOT updating this blog.
READ: I’m a lazy asshole. Shameful, I know.
In the last few weeks there has been a LOT of stuff going on with me, so here is a quick recap:
1. Crazy Zombie Race Training
Remember a while ago when I wrote about how I was training for a 5k zombie race? Well, I’ve totally been keeping up with said training. In fact, today I ran my first full 3 mile run. LIKE A BOSS!
2. Visiting friends
I visited my lovely friend Jamie, who just moved to Chicago. (I’m going to be the minister in her wedding in October)
3. HOLY PORTER, BATMAN!
While visiting Jamie in Chicago, we spent some time chilling at the Green Eyes pub in Bucktown, Chicago. It was there that I experienced love at first sip. Breckenridge Vanilla Porter… How do I describe it?
It’s got a dark, deep flavor that reminds me of coffee and chocolate, and then at the end it has a vanilla-y kick that makes it oh-so-delectable!
4. Interviewed for a new job
Just Monday, I found a post on craigslist for a writer/editor job about a half hour away from me for a local magazine. I jumped on it instantly, sending them my resume and CL the day that I saw the posting. The next morning they offered me an interview, and today I actually went to apply for the position. I think the interview went well, so keep your fingers crossed for me, peeps! :)
5. New blogging opportunity
I just recently got accepted as a columnist for an AWESOME new blog called kate-book.com. This interesting and quirky site is written for girls named Kate by girls named Kate, Kait, Kathryn, Katie, Kathleen, etc. etc.
So check out my new, biweekly column, called “CompliKAITed Life”, which will be posted every other Wednesday. I’ll be posting an announcement when the first one goes up, but for now, if you’re intrigued, check out kate-book.com here.
So I guess that’s it for updates right now. LOTS of stuff is happening for me right now, so keep checking back for more randomness, zombies, and generally quirky life stuff.
