Today, I walked shelter dogs for the first time. I was so intimidated, but they are so happy! I should have known better. Dogs are friendly.
Today, I made a cake from scratch for the first time. Much like gourmet food, sometimes you just prefer the taste of the boxed kind. But I am still proud of myself for doing it the old fashioned way, at least once.
Today, I went to town on my LinkedIn profile. How come no one talks about LinkedIn? It's just Facebook for professionals; instead of favorite music and movies, I have my resume. When I first heard of LinkedIn, probably through Google searches gone slightly awry, I was pretty sure it was a scam. Yes, we have WHATEVER name you're looking for! Just sign up here, it's free! Fill out a profile to message WHOMEVER you're looking for! Invite WHOMEVER you're looking for to sign up for LinkedIn! See? Super sketch. So imagine my surprise when I figured out that it was pretty legit. I have sent many connection requests, feeling mostly ridiculous, but a network has to start somewhere. Incidentally, my only picture where I don't look absurd is me on my most recent birthday, relishing a Coldstone creation. At Coldstone. Maybe at our October photo shoot I'll have her take some that I can remotely use for things like, you know, LinkedIn.
Yesterday, I signed up for a new Google Voice number, with a semi-new email address, and took more consideration in choosing my digits and scored a number whose last four spell HUGS. HUGS!
Stay tuned tomorrow for painting Kathryne's condo and my first official venture into yoga since high school.
