    Cali Girl Does New York

    Work was calling, so I went. I have always wanted to go to New York. The glitz, the glam, the “City that Never Sleeps.” Let’s not forget about my beloved SATC too, even though Girls Gotta Eat has me rethinking my love for those ladies! Every year there are two large tradeshows for my new(ish) industry, one on the east coast and one on the west coast. Last year I was too new to venture out East, but this year I was for sure going. So I went. I knew my adventure time was limited and I tried to remind myself that I should be grateful for any time in…

    Musings: ENFP

    I’m going to start using Myers-Briggs to vet potential dates! I haven’t heard four letters thrown around so freely until I started at my current employer. I’ve taken the test a handful of times, on my own accord. But I’ve never had my employer be such a huge advocate for Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI). They encourage us to find ours, then they go deeper and teach you to communicate and learn from other types. I enjoy professional development, probably more than most. I was really excited to sign up for this course and to solidify which four letters would be assigned to me. Little did I know, they aren’t assigned…

    Musings: One SPECtacular Year

    Workavsaries are a thing, right? If you haven’t come to notice it, I love to celebrate milestones, birthday’s, anniversaries — pretty much anything that can be celebrated. I know this tradition stems from my parents, because they too, like myself, celebrate all this stuff as well – mine, theirs, Lils, everyone’s! ‘Birthday Month’ notwithstanding of course, it created itself and continues to be strong. I won’t defend it, it just happens that way every year. Why stop it? HA HA! In 2017 I left a job where I loved my coworkers and I enjoyed what I was doing, but saw NO career growth in sight. I left that comfort and…

    3 Day Sabbatical

    Better late than never, right… I’m already finishing the third week of my new job. Surprise! I got a new job. I wanted to do a post about leaving my job at the Nut House and how I was excited to start something new. But then I figured I better wait until I actually start the new job before I blog about it. Then, the next thing you know, my first week was done and it was a crazy, busy and here we are NOW! Three weeks in and excited…and being challenged in a great way. It’s not like you walk around talking about looking for a new job. But those that I vent to…

    Musings: Organized for Life

    How do I organize people’s lives for a living? Via Seriously! If you were to ask me what my current or in the moment ‘dream job’ would be, it would to be a “Professional Organizer”. I have no clue what it is, exactly, but I know I’d kill at it. My life isn’t the most organized, because when it comes to myself, I tend to become a little lazy. This isn’t the most accurate statement, my life isn’t most organized when it comes to putting away laundry. I love to wash and sometimes fold laundry, but putting it away is my least favorite chore! I digress. However, if I were…
