The past month has been a bit insane. Hence why there isn’t more posts on this for a while. But I’m hoping to turn this around and get back in the swing! To start that a little, I’m going to be a little selfish and talk being proud of yourself. I realize the post before this was the same thing, but sometimes, you just need to be proud of yourself. This month, I’m pretty proud of myself for completing all the races I’ve signed up for this year!
I’m slowly getting back in the habit of blogging on a regular basis. I find at the beginning of the week, I have a harder time getting motivation, but once Wednesday and Thursday hit, I usually do a lot better.
Here are some things I’m thrilled about this week!
It’s almost halfway through the month, but whatever. In addition to saying “Yes Please” to more things, I’m going to try and do things that push me a little out of my comfort zone. I’ve said before, I’m not a very adventurous kind of person. I usually have to grip onto the Gryffindor part of me pretty hard and convince myself that I can do whatever is out of that zone. I haven’t died yet, so I know that I can do it.
Last year I stepped out of this zone by participating in a crazy amount of 5ks (more on those for 2016 coming later this week). But this year I’m going to try and push it a little bit more.Starting with January. But January is mostly going to be about planning out my comfort zones and where they end.
January Goals: Work This Out
(FYI: It should be noted that any time I can use a High School Musical song to explain something, I will.)
What the frak is Geek Girl Brunch?
Geek Girl Brunch is an organization started in New York City where a group of fantastic ladies decided to get together for brunch to talk about all things geek. This simple idea has launched chapters all over the WORLD (for real! There are chapters all over!) for other ladies to gather for drinks, brunch and a safe and fun space to discuss geeky and girly things.
Not only do I think that this is an amazing group for geek girls to get to know other geek girls, and I also think that everyone should look into to see if there is an active chapter near them, but finally, I recently volunteered as one of the officers for the Salt Lake City chapter! Me and two other amazing ladies are working on getting everything ready for our chapter launch.
If you’re in the Salt Lake City area please go here and join (even if you’re not, go there to find your local chapter!). You can also follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Things are still getting off the ground for it, so there isn’t a ton of activity, but it’s going to be the best place for new information. For those not in my area, any signal boosting you can do to help us find more members is greatly appreciated! It’ll give you all sorts of good karma!
