Happy 30th Birthday To Me

Laura_Realization_Point

When you’re ten years old, you can’t really think for yourself – you go to school and do what your parents tell you. When you’re a baby, you can’t even take care of your bodily functions. So I think that 20 is the first decade where it’s fair to compare what you’ve made of yourself in the world. And boy, have I come a long way since I was 20! Today I turned 30 years old, and I couldn’t be happier with where I am. I’m a billion times more confident than I was at 20, and not afraid to …

Continuing to ponder the work-life balance

Last week, I wrote one of my most honest posts to date, on how I’m feeling about the relationships in my life. I was surprised to find a lot of empathy from others – I guess this is something that is pretty common after all! Since no one ran me out of the blogosphere with nastiness for my last post, I’m going to try to stop censoring and start writing what’s really on my mind. When I wrote that last post about relationships, an anonymous commenter wrote an eye-opening reply suggesting that perhaps this isn’t the job for me. Shortly …

That true blue BFF

Lately, all my travel is really wearing on me. Earlier this year, I was in DC four days a week, and then traveling so much on weekends (Europe, woo!) that I was only home a few days a month. I started losing friends (okay, maybe not losing, but drifting away from and losing closeness) as a result of my traveling, so I made it a point to mostly stop the weekend travel and make myself more open for weekend planning. I thought that would cover it, but it seems that in my absence, a lot of my friends have shifted …

The Friday Night Conundrum

As a single girl in NYC, every week I face the Friday night conundrum: to go out, or not to go out? When I’m dating someone, I love spending a quiet Friday night at home with him. Watch a movie, cook or get takeout, and basically just cuddle up in bed until I drift off to sleep at the geriatric hour of 9pm or so. (To explain: after a long week of work, especially with my current travel schedule where I don’t get home until 2am on Friday mornings, that’s pretty much all I have the motivation to do on …

The stress is almost over…

This week has been crazy. I think I mentioned that Boyfriend is apartment hunting, but it’s been so much crazier than I thought. His lease is up June 30th, so still being undecided and looking at apartments through today was really stressful! We’ve been going into work at 6 AM in order to get out early enough to see apartments in the afternoon, and then Boyfriend has even been going back to work after that and not getting home until midnight… just to do it all over again. Fortunately, by Tuesday, we found a few places that were good options. …
