Personal Update and Hello!

Hello, lovely F-Listers! Remember me? It's been...I don't know, decades since my last post? I was talking to some friends the other day about how LJ is still the best place for the COMMUNITY of fandom, so figured I needed to reacquaint myself with it! So here's an update from me.

[Blah-blah-blah]I quit my job a month ago! I don't regret leaving the company AT ALL (man, they were a great big bag of dicks), but kiiiinda regretting not having something solid in place now because even though I desperately WANTED at least a month off, not having something lined up is really starting to make me nervous. I have been to a recruiter and they really like my resume and are on the lookout for me, but they said it might be a couple months even. Kind of a drawback of being in such a senior position, I guess - there aren't too many coming open at any given time. Ah, well, more time for...sitting on my couch?

I am getting healthy(er)! At Christmas I hit a new high on the scale (aka a low for me!) and said screw this. So I've been using MyFitnessPal since January 1, and just TODAY finished a 30 day challenge with morrezela, kelios, somer, sleepypercy, alycat and some others where we worked up to doing 40 sit-ups, 100 crunches and 100 squats. I'm proud that I stuck with it because I never stick with anything lol. A lot of it has to do with the encouragement of all the girls on twitter, that really helps and makes it fun! At the same time I'm on week 7 of an 8 week running program, and that's coming along slowly but surely. I've lost 15 lbs so far and at least that's something I feel good about.

I've written one fill for spn_masquerade (so far) and started another last night. Hoping to do at least five like last year, though tebtosca is pushing for six because she's mean. I've signed up for spnspringfling and still have spn_meanttobe to work on as well, so...maybe it's a good thing I'm not working? lol

I'm going to Vegas for my birthday! I know I said I wasn't going to any more cons but first we signed up for NJCon, (though that one is more because of the fangirls I'm going to be hanging with than the show people) but then JDM happened and now I get a Jared/Jensen/Jeff photo op ON MY BIRTHDAY. Top THAT, life. Plus I've bid on a Jared meet & greet because why the hell not, right?

What about you, people, what's new?
