I’ve really topped myself this time.

What’s it been, *7* months? For serious?


I’m sorry, I really am. You would think, given the SCADS of free time I have now, that I would have been blogging like a MANIAC! So wierd. I’m barely even READING blogs anymore. I don’t really understand it either, frankly.

Anyway, you *might* be wondering what I’ve been up to (if you’re still checking, that is. You could possibly have completely forgotten about me, considering the 7 months and all…)

Well, I went to Greece. My quasi-cousin chartered a boat and 20 of us sailed around the Greek Islands. Now, while that sounds all kinds of glamorous, and while we did have a fabulous time, it was way more Pirate Adventure than Posh Yacht Voyage. I spent the entire first day puking over the rails!

The Aegeotissa

Also? We totally got stranded at sea. For two days.


At Sea.

When the Rescue Boat came, we literally had to jump from one boat to the other (after throwing our luggage over to the other boat.) There were other adventures too, like when the on-board chef badly sprained his leg two days in and had to bail on us. We got a new chef a day or two later, but in the meantime, the captain cooked us spaghetti. IN GREECE. LOL. OH! And one of the lower cabins flooded! AND! I broke my toe on the last day. ON LAND (ironic, no?) BUT! Really, it was a nice trip :)

See? Nice!

Since then, I have:

  • Gotten a new laptop (funded by crap I sold on ebay for mad cash!).
  • Moved to NY.
  • Taken Hayley to the vet approximately 10 times (she’s fine now).
  • Been to 2 funerals and 2 weddings.
  • Taken 3 weekend road trips (including MDS$W!).
  • Designed one portfolio website.
  • Bought my car (which I was previously leasing).
  • Missed You.
  • Gotten addicted to Facebook.
  • Applied for hundreds and millions of jobs.
  • Gotten 2 interviews.
  • Cried over my application to interview ratio.

I have also pissed off the City of New York with my failure to keep up with alternate side of the street parking regulations.

The Scarlet Letter Sticker of SHAME.

Unemployment has been tough, but I’ve been hanging in there. This has helped greatly:

three fingers neat.

I would like to thank Adam for keeping the whiskey stocked in the house and Ebony for passing on that three fingers neat will cure anything that ails you. Although, I will tell you that right after taking the picture above, I accidentally kicked the whiskey INTO the tub. Bathing in it does not have the same effect as drinking it. FYI.

Besides that, I’ve just been spending a lot of time with these guys:

Rock Stars. All of them.

So far, I’ve been shuttling between my mom’s house on LI (where I officially live and mooch) and Adam’s in the Bronx (where I UNOFFICIALLY live and mooch). However, in about a month and a half, I will be officially be MOVING IN WITH ADAM :) After nearly three years, I finally broke him down. :-P

So hey, it’s not all bad, right? ;)

  17. Sarah S Says:

    I’ve been following your blog for a little while now and it’s good to see you back! You’ve had a lot o’ stuff going on! Greece looks fabulous, the story of your trip, not as fabulous, but definitely memorable. Your portfolio rocks! Maybe it rocks so much that places are afraid they can’t offer you enough money to hire you. :oS What a double-edge sword. Good luck!

    And yes, it’s about time. ;)
