March was a crazy month. I was travelling for half the month, and when I wasn’t travelling my body decided that it was a good time to get sick. We are only a quarter of the way into 2014 and I am positive I have spent a majority of that time fighting off bronchitis, a sore throat and now a nice cold… I’m sure work is very concerned about my (seemingly) non-existent immune system.
I apologize for the brevity of this blog post, but you, my loyal audience, are worthy of a weekly post from me. So, without further ado, I present March through a series of quick snapshots:
The first weekend of March, I went to Ikea with my mother to (finally) update some of my furniture. I bought a new bed frame, sheets, bedding and a nice new multipurpose gray cart! I then enjoyed a brief week at home, and a Rain Concert with my friend, Lexxi. Rain is a Beatles Tribute Band, and crazy good live. This was a nice break before jet-setting off for vacation.
Then it was off to Los Angeles to see my good friend Beth! Beth and I went to high school together, and it is always great to be able to pick up a conversation with someone like no time has past! Beth and I went to Venice Beach, got dinner, played in the sun and chatted like old times. It was great to see her and I am so happy for her to be living out her dream in LA!
From LA, I continued my journey of the West Coast up to San Francisco, where I spent time with Shannon, one of my best friends from college. Much like Beth, she moved to Cali to live out a dream she’s had for awhile. We had a very chill and relaxed week and even had a mini spa/pampering day where we drank wine and did face masks! It was just like a middle school sleepover all over again!
San Francisco was a blast, and I immediately left there to head to NYC for a business trip, talk about CRAZY! Bi-coastal in a week! My sleep schedule was completely wonky… I was heading to NYC in order to attend a giant Biopharm tradeshow and live-tweet the event. Our company’s booth was breathtaking. I am blown away with how quickly they can set these things up!
It was also my first time in NYC since I was a child, and it was nice to see Time Square… that’s really all I saw though. There really isn’t much time for exploring during business trips! But I did manage to trick someone into taking this photo!
From NYC, it was off to Columbus, Ohio, because I like to push my body to the brink of exhaustion and I also wanted to see my college friends… In Columbus, I got to hang out with friends, relive my youth by going to a Demi Lovato concert and learned the valuable lesson that hangovers hurt more as you get older.
All the travelling was fun, but now I am paying the price; I am sicker than a dog! But, I wouldn’t trade it for the world. March was fun, and I look forward to April!
