Hi.

This blog and I have been through a lot together: graduate school, first jobs, second jobs, cross-country moves, third jobs, fourth jobs, funerals, an engagement, a marriage ... and a divorce. 

We've learned a lot, grown even more and we're still adventuring. 

Let's adventure together.

The differences in Oklahoma and North Carolina. Volume 1.

IBraves’ve made it through my second full week of work, and this time – not as a sick kid. If I could give myself a high five, I would. Instead I bought myself something pretty on the internets. Don’t shake your head at me. If you survived two weeks of learning new clients, new coworkers and a new city – you’d buy yourself something from Kate Spade’s family and friends sale, too. Let’s talk Charlotte.

The main difference between the 405 and the 704: Substitute the red dirt that coats your car after a cruise down a country road with a yellow chalkish substance, and that’s what every car in North Carolina looks like. Pollen. It’s everywhere.

The meteorologists said we’d have severe weather last night. I looked at the radar and saw green and yellow when I was used to seeing red and black. Calm down, North Carolina – it’s just rain.

It’s safe to say nothing was sold or claimed by the section in this wonderful state. This means an east/west road easily turns into a north/south road, which results in me discovering new parts of town. Not cool, Robert Frost.

Last weekend, we went to Atlanta. Read as: replace “weekend trip to Dallas” with “weekend trip to Atlanta.”

In the 405, my client was a region of the state. Here, I’m working with the entire state. A state I’m so excited to discover.

We found Molly.

The worst sick person.
