Sweating the Big Stuff recently made the comment, “Yeah man – you haven’t written anything new in a WEEK.” That must be the equivalent of being gone for several months in blogging years. ;)
So, let’s dish out some juicy gossip on what’s been going on.….. not much if you can believe it!
Went to the April Happy Hour which was great. The $3 PBRs were expected, but I’d been looking forward to the shindig for some time because Lean Life Coach dropped by. Plus you simply can’t beat the energy emanating from My Next Buck & Budgets Are Sexy.
After the big race, I’d thought it was back on the blogging track. Nope.
I crashed and burned. Started enjoying sitting around (not running) and catching up on some TV.
In my own defense, I was out-of-town last weekend. That was invigorating. Hung out with a bunch of college buddies – always helps to refuel the ambitions although too hard on the liver. Most exciting was catching up with a good friend who’ll be starting a Master’s program at Stanford. Made me think again about my own future, and may be doing a comparative review of MEM vs MBA vs MSE programs along the lines of Well-Heeled.
Taking care of a few items in the background. Still keeping up with Kathy Kristof, she’s still trucking along with her site and told me about a potentially exciting opportunity in the near future.
Looks like Engineer Your Finances will be doing its first “official” book review! I’m [attempting] to knock out this John Bogle book, Enough, before I receive the other book. You may have already seen the title floating around, so we’ll keep it a secret for now. ;)
My fiance and I are plugging away at our wedding plans. She’s doing the brunt of the work right now, as I’m more interested in doing a blog post about our honeymoon to Ambergis Caye, Belize! I will admit, the flower lady we met (and went) with had a pretty incredible life story to share. When you find someone who has such passion in their work, it eventually translates into your own happiness.
Oh yeah. And remember that nice picture with T. Boone Pickens? Well, future Mrs. FinEngr had an even MORE amazing second night and got to meet Condoleezza Rice! Her girlfriends ate it up.
