So, since I’ve been Tumblr M.I.A. here is what has been going on in my life:
I’m working at the Ttown school system as the PR intern for the next year. Good experience and better money…how often can someone say that? Haha
About 2-3 weeks ago I decided to use the last year of my scholarship/GI Bill to pay for a MPA rather than goof off for a year. As of yesterday, I’m in the program officially and will start come the fall semester. Woot! Two degrees for the price of none!
I was selected to be a 2014-2015 Google Student Ambassador for Alabama.
I’m going to San Francisco July 23-30
I’m going to the Out for Undergrad Tech Conference in SF in October
My dental hygienist is Bradley Byrne’s sister-in-law so I might (big might!) get a job working for him/his campaigns next year/after my MPA. Yay dental hygiene connectiosn!
I’m working on NYE plans and staying at the Bellagio this year.
So, besides the massive fight I just had with my parents, life is pretty great.
“Oh yes, the infamous women in tech and how we’re such a delicate breed of flower that needs to be bowed down to … I find it appalling that there are some women out there who use the term ‘feminism’ to mask the wider problem of bullying, and bullying happens in all industries, not just tech. Because guys are harsh on guys, guys are harsh on girls, girls are actually worse with each other, and girls are bad with guys. So I actually get told to wear makeup or get a designer handbag more by other women than guys.”—Caroline McCrory, GigaOm Research’s senior director of product development (via self-ownership)
“People always say that it hurts at night and apparently screaming into your pillow at 3am is the romantic equivalent of being heartbroken. But sometimes it’s 9am on a Tuesday morning and you’re standing at the kitchen bench waiting for the toast to pop up. And the smell of dusty sunlight and earl gray tea makes you miss him so much you don’t know what to do with your hands.”—Rosie Scanlan, “On Missing Them” (via rawkiss)
You ever look over at someone and they’re just watching TV or laughing about something and all you can think is how much you love them? They’re not doing anything special but that just makes it that much better.
