I'm so bad at the blog thing nowadays. Oh well, still not giving up.

I decided to write a blog today because i have recently entered into a temporary period of vegetarianism.

Now, before you start thinking I've become some granola-chomping hippie, it's merely for the health and fitness benefits. I'm trying to get in the best shape possible with out any kind of hindrance other than time. Finding time to lose weight when you work in the fast-paced and busy political world is difficult enough on it's own, let alone adding in shitty food and bad diet.

Thus far, I'm a week in and feeling good. I don't feel guilty after meals anymore and I'm discovering creative uses for vegetables (not like that, pervert. Lol).

I'd appreciate any and all low-fat, low-calorie vegetarian recipe's all of you may have to be shared with me. Really looking for new ideas.

In other news, my job is going extremely well. I've taken to it like a fish to water, which makes sense as my major in college was Political Science.

Also, I have two small trips planned in the coming months. One is a trip with Aimee to San Francisco in early April. We plan on watching my Dodgers play the hated Giants, which should be fun, as well as visiting landmarks including Alcatraz, where my Grandfather worked as a prison guard for a time.

After that, i'm doing a boy's trip to Vegas for my buddy Matt's birthday. I'll leave out any and alld etails of that trip. =)

Hope everyone is well!

New New New!

Hello Everyone!

So, this is my last week at work and it is a bittersweet time.

Quick Refresher:
I am the Head Grant Writer for a Non-Profit Organization that deals with homeless services. We provide emergency, supportive and essential services in addition to transitional and affordable permanent housing. I have enjoyed it here and have witnessed first-hand many of the amazing stories of some of our clients. 

On the one hand, I absolutely love what the organization does and as an integral part of that, I've been extremely satisfied with the results.

On the other hand, I feel as though my job has become stagnant and the Development Director does not make life any easier.

Because of the very few cons of the position, I would not be leaving were it not for the amazing opportunity which presented itself recently.

I was offered (and accepted) the position of Communications Aide for an elected member of the California State Assembly! I am now officially a political staffer for a newer Assembly Member who really has a genuine interest in the people she serves. I am excited and eager to take on this new challenge, and am very excited and thankful with the vertical direction my career has been taking.

Onward and upward!

Wacky Wednesday Wha???

Hello again!

I'm back (again) from self-imposed exile. Self-imposed exile in the sense that i almost completely forgot about blogger.

But I'm back and ready to rock and/or roll.

On to the wackiness!
