It has been WAY too long since my last blog post. Essentially after my spring break trip, I was slammed by school (I suppose that’s my fault for taking 17 hours…). I seriously just wanted to cry the last few weeks because of my classwork! I think the worst part has passed (hopefully/thankfully) as most of my classes wont have a final exam.
Due to all the craziness in my life I haven’t had the chance to update about my spring break! Phillip took me on some great adventures, we went to the Boulder Planetarium, skiing in Eldora, attended Frozen Dead Guy Days, discovered a little Buenos Aires community, watched season 1 of “True Detective” (and sat on the edge of our seats during the entire finale), toured the only Celestial Tea manufacturing plant in the world & had a tea tasting, strolled down the 16th street mall, ate pizza at the Mellow Mushroom with my study abroad roommate- Rachel (SO unREAL!), and browsed through the Denver Art Museum.
I also had the opportunity to go to the Denver TEKsystems office and network with my future co-workers. I met Olivia K, the account manager I will be aligned to, and had the chance to eat dinner with her downtown. I had the opportunity to eat lunch with my Director of Business Operations, Justin Watson and he and I discussed mutual expectations for when I start in May. Justin even helped organize a brief office happy hour so I could become familiarized with my new TEK family. My official start date is going to be Monday, May 19th.
Oh, and another amazing announcement!!! As of today, I have signed my lease & officially have a place to live in Denver! Phillip and I are reaching our 2 year mark, and in that time we’ve mostly been in a long distance relationship. For a long time we’ve both known that we wanted to take this next step together and I can’t wait to move in with my best friend in about 30 days 🙂 We will be living in around the Washington Park & South Broadway area.The neighborhood has a lot of character and it really reminded Phil and I of the Bishop Arts district in Dallas (which we also love). My move-in date to Denver is still planned for Monday, May 12th.
Thankfully the chaos in my life has helped time move a little quicker. In just 30 days my life is going to be completely different, and I couldn’t be more excited about it.
