Donâ€™t forget to nominate a blogger for the Blogging Pants! I’d like to give the pants to a newer/lesser known but equally awesome bloggerâ€¦ so nominate away! Itâ€™s going to be hard to pick someone. And Iâ€™ll announce winners of The Spark giveaway at dinner.
I finally wedged my bike into my car and took it to the shop to get the chain ring fixed.
I crashed in November and destroyed the chain ringâ€¦ Iâ€™m excited to get Pink fixed so I can ride outside again. 🙂
Afterwards, I headed to the gym. I did 37 minutes on the stationary bicycle while reading a draft of Jennaâ€™s memoir/cookbook. Itâ€™s good! I canâ€™t wait to buy it.
For a while, I wanted to be a book editor. I was convinced that I couldnâ€™t write well enough to make it into a career, but I really liked writing and books, so I thought editing would be a good fit. I landed an interview for a Penguin publishing internship; however, I didnâ€™t think I could afford to live in New York City for the summer so I never even went to the interview.
Other career choices I flirted with:
- Sexual Assault Counselor
- Marketing or Public Relations
- Newspaper journalist
- Lottery winner
- Physical Therapist
When I graduated college, I began a position as an Urban Planner/Technical Writer and worked there for about 3.5 years. If you told me that Iâ€™d be a semi-professional blogger, freelance writer, and author a few years ago, I would have laughed in your face!
Funny how life works out.
Anyway, while I did my workout on the bike, I looked longingly at the treadmills:
I am happy to report that my foot is feel a LOT better. Actually, after biking, my feet felt great, like the movement and increased blood flow was good for it. Keep your fingers crossed that this is not a serious injury! 🙂
I made an amazing grilled vegetable bagel sandwich. I covered slices of eggplant and squash in low-sodium soy sauce and then grilled on a George Foreman for a few minutes.
With melted cheese + mustard:
And a copious amount of grapes:
What career paths have you considered and where did you end up? Do you like your current field or do you want to make a change?
