Back to My Regularly Scheduled Life

I have been a horrible blogger since my life went back to being on a more regular schedule after graduating from The Iron Yard. For anyone who hasn’t heard, I got my first job as a Front End Developer [Apprentice] at a company in Charleston called Blue Acorn. I hit the ground running as soon as I finished getting my portfolio completed after graduation and applied to many jobs, went on many interviews, and landed the first job I applied for (and the one I wanted to most!). Blue Acorn has an amazing training program that I am currently a part of and will be a part of for a few more months. I am really enjoying learning something new each day and being challenged at the same time. I was truly lucky to land a job in development and start exactly one month after graduation.

In addition to landing my first development position I have been steadily getting back into my circus training at Aerial Fit. I have really dove back into static trapeze and am loving it more than ever. I cannot wait for July when they will have two trapeze classes a week!

Wooden HangersI have also been reading “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing” by Marie Kondo and attempting to apply the concepts to our home. So far, I have only completed a couple of categories in the house, however, we have donated enough stuff for two trips to different donation centers! I even invested in some beautiful wooden hangers for my closet. Which really, wasn’t as big of an investment as I had imagined, since I cleaned out so many of my clothes! I tried to apply Marie Kondo’s principles as well as work in some of the capsule wardrobe principles into my clothing clean out. Although I am not following either plan fully, I have used their methods to help me pair down to a manageable amount of clothing. I am also understanding more and more what I really do and do not like in order to keep from splurging on clothing!

Now that my life is back to the semi-normal schedule that I tend to keep, I’ll try my best to keep up my blog posts more often and bring some new, fun and interesting posts to all (5?) of my readers!
