Just because you blog doesn't mean you're a creepy voyeur. I know this for a fact, because I took advantage of my short time in Columbus to meet up with some fellow blogger gals for dinner at the Cheesecake Factory! They weren't weirdos, and I didn't feel like I was in danger for one second. We've spent months reading about each others' lives, so it was only right to make an effort to get together. Nine showed up for the gathering, and our time was filled with great food and conversation about nearly everything - from personal stories to blogging techie-type stuff, we got to know each other even better! I made sure to set near the middle so I could chat with each girl during dinner. In the end, it was clear that we're all 20-something women with a wild creative streak and a cheesecake craving, trying to make a living, reach goals, and blog about it all. In the end, we were so much alike. In the end... spending time blogging is perfectly O.K. I've sometimes questioned whether I should spend so much time and put so much effort into my blog, but after solidifying friendships with 8 other ladies from central Ohio, it became obvious that blogging is much more than writing; it's fun, fulfilling, and there are terrific, interesting writers that are great to know and develop relationships with! Until next time, girls!
Enjoying dinner (it flew by!)
Without revealing too many details, I can say that my husband is well on his way to obtaining a position as an assistant professor somewhere. The "interview season" officially kicked off with some fun air travel complete with lake effect snow and delays out the woo-zah earlier this week. Interview Season is kind of like the NFL Scouting Combine - you go and show 'em what you've got. And hope and pray that someone likes you and wants to pay you to move there, work, and make 'em look good. And win a SuperBowl Trophy... oh wait, no - not quite like that, but you get the picture. In other words, IT'S ON NOW. Am I anxious? You betcha! I'm also fearless and totally ready to move on up to the next thing, to the next place.
