What’s New, Pussycat…

Life has been more than a little crazy lately. Between work and my landlords selling the house I’m in, there hasn’t been much down time. In a way that’s good – I’ve always been one to enjoy being busy. However, the occasional downtime to read a book, do laundry, or even get groceries has been few and far between. A few updates though….

  1. I traded in my car and am now the proud owner of a new SUV. It’s a fabulous bright blue, making it my first colorful vehicle. It also drives fast (okay, I drive fast, but it equally feels fast).
  2. I joined Orangetheory Fitness! If you haven’t heard of this place (maybe you’ve been living under a rock), you should check it out. You wear a heart rate monitor to gauge how hard you are pushing yourself and complete a circuit of cardio and strength training. Honestly, it’s one of my favorite workouts because it changes every day. Also, your first class is FREE.
  3. There is roughly 30 days left before my first cruise and first trip to the Mediterranean. I still have yet to test out my new camera, but I’m hopeful that can happen this weekend. I’ll likely take it out to Lake Michigan and test a few settings with the combo of water and buildings, which is similar to the cruise atmosphere.
  4. The best news of all – I’M MOVING TO PHOENIX. It’s true. Next June, I’m officially moving for a variety of reasons. The climate (heat and lack of insane humidity) and having a couple incredible friends already there are my two biggest reasons. I may even have a roommate after a couple months there if things work out, which would be awesome for saving money.

That’s pretty much all I have for now. I’m working on a side forensics project testing FitBark and Whistle3, but don’t really have any updates on that yet. Once I do, you’ll be the firsts to know (as well as anyone attending Phoenix’s CactusCon, if my talk gets accepted).
