Getting Back into the Grove of Things

Yesterday I had a fantastic day!  I mean, I had my coffee...I worked...and then I had some good company for a night out of randomness.  I must say I enjoy things when they are spare of the moment...but if they are weddings or something more special then yeah that deserves a lot of attention.

I originally had planned to attend the Texas Democratic Party State Convention but in the end I had to pass. I wanted to do some many things but I just couldn't.  I really don't like to hear no or say no but I had to say no to myself.  On a good note, I attended the first Drainage Advisory Committee meeting at the ITT building this morning. It ran a little after one but its all good. I learned a lot by all those who were present but more importantly I realized that I had to do a lot more reading.

I have been keeping a peaceful mind lately and believe it or not it has helped me stay focused. Having some Mari-time other than work is always good for the soul. Lets just say I am content and really looking forward to my new life adventures and new beginnings.

Alright friends as for now I got no new updates other than that I gotta go run today and put in some exercises!

Peace and Love, MDL

Its Been A While

Alright so its been about three months since I last posted something. I had a lot on my plate and I actually still do.  But, I realized if I am gonna make this blog relationship work I gotta work at it.  So here I am.

I got good news. I have finished my masters coursework! Finally :) Now I gotta finish up my thesis that is due before the end of this month so that I may graduate for sure in August.

Aside from that I have been dealt with a pretty ugly stack of cards.  I cannot trust men...but after watching "When in Rome" with my lovely cousins and Moses, I have some hope. I guess I gotta find a man that I love more than work. I think that is when I will be serious and committed to someone other than myself. But for now, I am single as a bee.

Also, I am documenting my health plan once again. A year has passed since I last started and I am getting back into the grove of things. Going to the gym and watching my meals have made more happy than I already am.

I am excited about moving back to Austin in September. I am determined to keep doing good and hopefully landing an awesome job...I mean a second job. I just got too much time on my hands.  I am so determined to get my career on its feet and running. My goal of making a minimum of $100k is in reach. My estimate is within the next two years, hopefully by the time I am 30....I am calling that "Mari's Peak." At that point I will and should be ready for anything that comes my way.

Alright, this ten minute break has done me good and now I got 50 minutes for lunch.

Have a Super Duper Awesome Day Everyone!

Peace and Love, MDL
