I’m still here

Don’t worry friends, I’m still here. It’s been a crazy summer for me but I’m hoping to get back on track with my blogging now that I have everything organized again. My life remains pretty crazy but I think I have a better hold on all of the nonsense now. So what have I been up to?

 

-New job! I celebrated my birthday by moving on up in the world. I’ve joined an awesome team that’s allowing me to really define my own role with the company and that’s kind of awesome. I have high hopes for this place!

-New apartment! Husband and I moved out of the house we were sharing with roommates and into our own apartment. The neighbors aren’t too friendly but the apartment is nice and new and secured – so no major complaints there! Also, I FYI, I hate moving.

-Still classes! Oh me oh my. I will be so happy when I’m finally done with my degree. In case you don’t know the story – I went to university for two years, dropped out, took random classes at a community college for two years, left school for two years, got my associate’s degree, took a little less than a year, then went back to school to get my bachelor’s. I expect to have my bachelor’s degree by the end of winter 2014 and when that day comes I’m going to party my ass off. It has taken me so long to get to this point. If you had told me, graduating high school at 17, that it would take me around nine years before I would see a bachelor’s degree I would have laughed. And cried. And ran away. Long, arduous process does not even begin to cover it. But now I’m rocking a 4.0 GPA, a member of Golden Key International Society, and working my ass off in my 400 level classes. I can’t wait for the weekend that doesn’t have a homework assignment mixed in. It will be oh so glorious.

Geeked Out Fitness. If you’re following me on twitter (and you should be) then you might have seen this project I’m working on. Some friends and I are created a retail store that allows us to design and sell geeky fitness apparel. We built a Kickstarter to get our company off of the ground and we met our goal! The Kickstarter is still running for a couple more days so please consider donating to the fund. The more money we earn from this Kickstarter – the more we have to put into the business and we have some pretty big and awesome plans for this company.

-Speaking of companies, I’m a fairly active part of Hashtag Studios. If you’re one of the two people that watched DrewTV, you know that this fledgling studio has been around for a little minute. We just moved the studio in a great space in a local business park and took on a great partnership opportunity. I’m helping to get the studio operational on an administrative level and you can also catch me doing some interviews at upcoming cons. Watch out for Hashtag – we’re making moves!

 

So I’ve been a tad busy. But I’m going to start making time for writing again. I hope someone is still reading this (hi mom!) and if not – well it’s time to get my content rolling again so there’s something to read!

Thanks for your patience, awesome readers. Tell me if there’s anything you’d like to see from my blog (more unicorns?) and I’ll try to make it happen. As long as you don’t request something totally weird.

 

Weirdo.
