Six Months In Review

It's been about six months since I last posted and I wanted to compare my last post with where I am now. Immediately after I left my position at Team Detroit, I started working as an Assistant Interface Developer at HelloWorld (we used to be called ePrize) and I absolute love it. I love everything: the environment, the people, the projects, the clients, and the skills I've learned. I'm doing exactly what I went to college for and I get to drink beer while doing it! I've learned so much since I've started and I can't wait to grow even more. 

I've been swimming, dancing, and reading. I bought a Betta fish; his name is Rufio. I started my own garden and have been traveling a lot lately. A couple of weeks ago I met my nephew, Adrian, for the first time (he's adorable)! My sister's wedding is coming up quickly and I couldn't be more excited.

The year is halfway over; some goals I met and some I didn't (yet). For the next six months I predict I'll definitely have to buy a car and I'll be moving to the Royal Oak area. I don't see myself buying a dog anytime soon since many landlords don't allow pets, but ONE OF THESE DAYS. I plan on moving to Seattle within the next five years, but I know for sure it won't be anytime soon. I love my job too much! Right now I'm really happy with where I am in life. There have been ups and downs this year, but all in all 2014 has been really great to me so far! To be continued...
