Loooong time, no blog! The past month or so has been pretty crazy busy and I truly haven’t found time to catch up on this space, but I hope to be back with some semblance of consistency now. I figured I’d wrap up the reason for my absence / new life changes with a little 5 on Friday action – You guys know how much I love lists ; )
One – I start a new job on February 12th! An opportunity literally fell into my lap back in November and (while I wasn’t looking to leave my current company) I had to apply and give it a shot. My new company is based in Boston but most employees are completely 100% remote – WFH FTW! My last day at Stream was Wednesday so I have a week and a half to loaf around and eat bon-bons. Related: what exactly is a bon-bon?
Two – Tim’s almost all moved in! He’s in the Fairmount area and we’re already having a blast exploring nearby. Also, we’ve assembled a handful of furniture together now and I don’t think it’s really that testing of a relationship… Just add beer and Spotify – works every time ; )
Three – The PHILADELPHIA EAGLES are going to the Super Bowl! The last time this happened was back in 2005, so we’re long overdue for another shot at that trophy. After reading a few posts and statuses about how Vikings fans were treated, I just wanted to say this: Don’t judge a book by it’s cover or a city by SOME of it’s fans. I promise you – we’re not all drunk a**holes, I’m VERY sorry on behalf of the ones who DID suck, and it’s perfectly acceptable to cheer for us – especially if you too want to see Brady taken down a peg ; )
Four – I hate to follow up those three with something way less exciting… but I am straight up obsessed with this new sweater/top from Target. THE SOFTEST. I sized up one! I also want to own this, this and this. Just because I’ll work from home doesn’t mean I don’t need to have cute clothes, right? Right!
Five – This isn’t even news, but I need your help! I need to purchase a laptop for my new job (they’ll reimburse me) and I want it to be a PC. My personal laptop is a MacBook Pro and it’s less than a year old, but I don’t want to use that one for work. I’m thinking Lenovo since that’s what I’ve gotten used to at Stream – but I’d love to hear your thoughts! 2-in-1 options? Second monitor size? For those of you with a home office – help a girl out!
