Facebook controls my life.
Social media govern my days.
Such is the fate of a social media and web administrator. Or, my preferred title, an online community manager. Sounds much more interesting.
So how do I relax? Turning the computer off and hitting the pavement. I am a self–titled fitness junkie, always interested in trying something new so I don’t get bored. In nice weather, I just want to run. When outside doesn’t cooperate, I do a HIIT workout from some favorite online instructors. I’m always pushing to beat my scores and improve. Step by step, I am building a better me.
Besides earning a paycheck, I am newly married and am launching a business with the best of partners, my husband and my brother. I hold masters degree in journalism from the University of Missouri School of Journalism. My preference is advocacy journalism: human rights, conflict mediation and peace-driven reporting are just a few of my interests.
The rest of my life consists of:
- being active often or I’ll go crazy;
- watching too much Vampire Diaries (possible?);
- during football season, well, it’s football all the time;
- hitting up every café I can find in search of the best Chai tea;
- spending as much time as possible in my neighborhood park, which is the best neighborhood park of all neighborhood parks;
- tackling new sewing and crafty projects (“professional Pinterest–er” is my next official title);
- and finally, embarking on a new stage of life with my pretty rad husband.
In reality, I just like to have fun. That fun can range from lounging on the couch watching the Steelers game (or not so much lounging and more jumping around yelling) to crazy dance parties with our favorite people. But as a friend said to me a lifetime ago, life is more funner when you’re having fun. So amid the craziness that life brings, I want to have always have at least a little fun in the mix.
