What exactly have I been up to the past few months?

It's clear that I haven't posted in a long time. A few months ago I took on some more responsibility at work. I started planning my own events rather than just helping people with theirs. Needless to say, I was psyched. It's not that helping other people with their events bothered me. The whole experience actually taught me a lot. However, the new role brought me a new sense of empowerment. I finally had control over my own (rather small) domain.

It started as a trickle of events - one, then two, then all of a sudden it was an uncontrolable deluge. In a department being pulled in all directions at once - with hundreds and thousands of events a year - they had no choice but to bump up my workload. My excitement has since dissipated. Getting more events has lost its luster (though there are the few that have piqued my interest). Generally speaking though, events have become mundane for me now. I'm ready for the next challenge.

In the meantime, as my work load intensified, I was also preparing to close on my apartment. Let's just say that 60 hour weeks alongside preparation of coop paperwork is just not fun. After I finally closed, it took me 3 1/2 months to pack and move in because work would not let up. Of course, if I had a strict deadline I would have done everything in my power to meet it. I didn't have one though - which was a blessing. Otherwise, it would have been an extremely unpleasant moving experience.

Now that I'm finally living in my first place, I finally have some time to myself again. Rejoice!!! I've begun reaching out to friends again. If I'm not out and about, I have the pleasure of looking for furniture and decor. So much fun!

I keep falling in love with my new neighborhood. Each and every time I stroll around I discover yet another aspect that makes me enjoy it even more. The quaint brownstones, the restaurants, the owner operated shops, the proximity to the city - I think I made a good decision.

Here's to a wonderful 2007!
