Things Distracting Me At Work Today….

Liz,

I’m in a funk. And I know that all of us get into a funk every now and then, but, I think it’s just way too early in the new year for me to be so darn melancholy. 2011 is cool and all, but in the midst of my angst surrounding my current job and my uncertainty regarding my ”ultimate” career path (and the ever daunting future) I find myself viewing it more as a year of tackling some pretty overwhelming questions and trying to figure out ways to stop myself from retreating into a corner. Gaaaah.

Well, being in a funk is never fun. So, instead of stressing myself with all of the things that I’m so unsure about, I’ve been spending my time thinking about things I can control and plan for like….VACATION. If I ever felt the need to get away, it’s now. Lol.
So, number one on the list of the things distracting me at work today is my top vacation spots that I’d like to hit before 2012. Let’s see if we can make it happen.

Universal Studios – Orlando, FL
I am determined to make it here this year to get on that damn Harry Potter ride. I promise you that I will make it to Orlando, even if it’s only for a weekend. Who’s with me?
Las Vegas, Nevada
Just ’cause I feel like I have to make it to Vegas in my early twenties, you know, before people can judge me for acting like a reckless Vegas first-timer. And who knows? Maybe I’ll win big and splurge on seeing Celine Dion.
Somewhere with a BEACH
The beach really is my happy place. Like, actually. So when I say “the beach,” it really can be anywhere warm, where I can sit in the sand with a cocktail, look at the ocean, and forget for just a few days that I live in “the city that never sleeps.” And it’s about time I made my way to the Carribbean. Any suggestions?
London
I want to shop and eat lunch in Harrods, see Big Ben, and really just sit in a coffee shop or something somewhere and listen to people talk. Lol. And hopefully travel around Europe a bit. Oh, and…ur totally coming with me. ;)
Ok, my list could go on and on and on, but if I make it to at least two of these spots this year, I think I’ll be a happy camper. Dream big, right? I totally feel better already….OK, back to work.

Halloween 2010: The Adventures of Amber and Liz

Amber,

It’s been two weeks – two weeks of back to the grind. Wake up, work, sleep. Repeat. But just two weeks ago we were doing none of that. We spent a week and a half in NY and DC to chase away the working woman blues. Rally to Restore Sanity, hangin with friends, my first slice of NY style pizza, wine and singing Disney…..all amazing times. But here is perhaps the most memorable….and what I’d most like to forget.

We were hipsters for Halloween.

Oh, goodness. I never thought I could feel more ridiculous (sorry hipsters). My exposure to hipsterdom has been to limited to our blog (here and here). So you told me, “All you need is a flannel shirt.” My response? “I don’t own a flannel shirt.” This was gonna be an education. Walking around DC I was incredibly self-conscious and full of loathing for my shoes and glasses and leggings and…..well, see for yourself.

Amber and Liz, if they were Hipsters.

Freakin Scary, Right???!

PS – More about our vacay to come!

Where Am I?
