Hello friends. It’s me, the girl who never ever writes anymore. I’m still here, still kicking. I’m just having more fun than any girl should be allowed to have. Some days I find myself feeling so busy, and then I reflect back on my last three years of life, and I am so thankful that now when I’m busy, it’s because I’m doing things that I tremendously enjoy. I have a countdown feature on my beloved iPhone, and it tells me that it’s been 77 glorious days since I graduated. Let me tell you, life after school is pure heaven.
I survived working another marathon. This one just about wiped me out, yet helping out brings me a lot of satisfaction. After five years, I’ve come to really like the people who run this event and look forward to it all year. And working the finish line yet again gave me “the bug” to run a big race. For the first time in my life, I felt the desire to run a full marathon… all 26.2 miles. We’ll see if the bug is still alive and well come this fall, or if it has been replaced by yet another new hobby. If nothing else, I’m still determined to run a Half in honor of that milestone birthday of mine this fall.
I saw a rodeo at Cowboys stadium with my sister’s community group. After watching these bull riders, I’m seriously considering permanently trading in my stilettos for my pink cowgirl boots.
I recently met the governor. He came to town to stump for my state representative, and since my job has a strong community relations aspect, I stopped by to do some networking and represent my employer. I had to elbow my way through a bunch of old republicans to finagle this picture.
My sister and I saw my very favorite band, Needtobreathe, play at the House of Blues the other night. It may have been one of the best concerts I’ve ever been to. I love all their songs, and they’re ten times better live than on their CDs. We had standing-room-only floor tickets, and my fire cracker sister looked at me and said, “We’re pushing our way to the front… follow me.” And then my super petite sister elbowed her way through a bunch of huge guys until we were only a few feet from the stage. I was so proud. What a fun sister bonding night.
I’ll leave you with the greatness of Needtobreathe.
