Awaken, my friends!
There are signs of spring in New York! The sidewalk snow banks are steadily melting into dirty street slushies. The fragrant piles of frozen garbage are thawing. And crabby, pale New Yorkers from all five boroughs are clawing their way out of their stale apartments and bracing themselves against the sun.
Remember the sun?
I admit that I am guilty of this particular brand of hibernation. And now that I work from home, it’s a bit more extreme. Yes, the total number of times I’ve changed into “real” pants over the last three months may be less than 10 (though I still argue, to my husband’s chagrin, that Rite-Aid jeggings are indeed pants), but I promise you that I have not been inactive.
I’ve actually been quite a busy little wordsmith. Some of what I’ve been working on is of the contest/submission variety and, as a deeply superstitious person, I’ll need to keep those details under wraps. But, I hope you’ll check out:
- My blog series for The Box Magazine. As an intermediate CrossFitter with an advanced cheese habit, I took on The Whole Life Challenge. This upcoming Saturday will mark my last official day of 8 weeks of consistent exercise, mobility, hydration and Paleo(ish) nutrition.
- This article on yoga for CrossFitters, which I also wrote for The Box Magazine.
- This piece for Billy Boy Enterprises in which the memory of my late grandfather calls me an asshole.
- Also, this spicy little Billy Boy article on food and privilege.
- My weekly articles for OfficeNinjas. My favorite (and most cathartic) is this on one that covers all the GOOD things you can get from a BAD job.
Also, you should know that I recently purchased this book and have become obsessed with all things KonMari:
Expect a detailed, spring cleaning-themed post soon (whether you like it or not).
So far I’ve only KonMari’d all my clothes. Here’s a little before and after action.
I feel approximately 100 lbs lighter.
More soon, friends!
