morning morning. here we are, another monday, another two weeks void of blogging (save for a few ardent eyes posts). we can only get better from here, right?

the last couple weeks have been a whirlwind for me. from ramping up some activities and letting others go to diving head first into the austin professional community, i feel i’m finally making strides on the ‘ol job hunt front. but while i’m feeling better and more comfortable with my approach, there’s still a lot to do (i.e. actually landing a job).

so without further ado, here’s what on the list for this week in an effort to continue full steam ahead on my progress:

– working on a really excited application today (requires ideas, suggestions, and lots-o-thought put into it)

– updating all my web pages with the new and improved résumé format

– reaching out to a long list of suggested contacts and companies

– laundry and grocery shopping

– and for a bit of fun, one of my good friends is coming in to austin this weekend, so lots of planning to be done.

what’s going on with you this week? can’t wait to make it another good one!

so, it’s been a while, no? after what seems an eternity of wading through self-doubt, frustration, mental blocks, and general feelings of defeat, its seems the clouds are parting and hope is slowly seeping back into my outlook. it’s tough out there, but you gotta keep on keepin’ on.

so on that note, let’s pick up with our regularly scheduled posts, shall we? in true monday fashion, here’s a look into what’s coming up this week:

– feeling pumped and refreshed to be picking up the job search again! follow-ups, new outreach and application submissions are all on the docket

– finishing up my taxes

– a class on ux tomorrow

– an hscaa meeting on wednesday, followed by a long overdue happy hour

– and this awesome event that i’m super excited to be attending on thursday!

what’s going on with you this week? whatever it may be, make it a good one, and here we go!

one day i’ll get my posting act together. and another heads up: posts will be light this week, as well, due to a growing to-do list. but hey, shaking things up is the best thing for me right now.

so, here we go…

– volunteering all week for this unofficial sxsw event

– wrapping my head around projects and tasks to be done for the hsc alumni association i’m helping get off the ground (oh, btw, that run for office i mentioned last week – elected president!)

– attending some more cool sx events

– gaining some traction on the ol’ job search (yay!)

so that’s it – a pretty packed week, but sure to be exciting. what’s going on with you?

and we’re back to our regularly scheduled programming. after a couple weeks reporting on the collections coming out of fashion month, it’s good to be back to a routine.

so, without further ado, here we go with a look at the week ahead:

– preparing for an exciting run for office with a new volunteer project i’ve taken on

– following up on some very exciting job apps (oh, and hunting for more!)

– a fun happy hour and movie date

not too much going on, but still looking forward to another productive week. how about you?

so clearly, i missed monday. but, let’s try to just sidestep that fact and carry on like usual. sound good? cool.

i don’t think this week will be too crazy – coming down from my nyc high will be the big thing on the to-do list. here are some others:

– following up on the meetings i had in the city

– two online classes today (still obsessed with this!)

– a bit of soul searching and gathering my thoughts again on the job search front

– tidying up after my travels

– birthday dinner for my little brother today

well, the start of the week sure did get away from me. i guess i was in denial about those two glorious days ending already. how does it never fail that weekends are short and weeks are impossibly long? one of the great mysteries of life, i suppose.

so how was your weekend?

mine was full of long walks traversing all corners of downtown austin. in an effort to give my poorly equipped lower body joints a break – yes, i hear it. i sound like i’m 70. but if you came from bad knees on both sides of your family and had crazy flat feet, you’d get it – i’ve been drawing out my daily strolls to make up for forgone running time.

there’s something awesome about walking. walking through neighborhoods and across town. sites that whiz by every day from the car window somehow look new and fresh. you gain a greater appreciation of your normal surroundings. you discover things you never knew existed before.

you should give it a try. ok, i’m off my soap box now.

anywho, after my leisurely weekend, i’m ready for the filled-to-the-brim week in front of me. on the top of my list is prepping for my so-close-i-can-taste-it trip to nyc (yay!). here’s what else is on the docket:

– major cleaning of the ol’ apartment (it’s way past time)

– organizing my finances and taking a peek into the future with some planning

– laundry and packing

– and other necessities to wrap up before heading out of town

what’s on your list this week? hope it’s a good one.

even though it’s a holiday and long weekend for many, i thought i’d carry on with our usual monday look-ahead-to-the-week post.

from a much needed lunch date today to getting my home life in order, this should be a pretty good week. here’s what’s going on:

– the aforementioned lunch with a dear friend at cenote today

– setting up in-person meetings with career contacts for my trip to nyc next week

– unpacking from my getaway to dallas this past weekend

– general organization and tidying up of my apartment
