A Short Break… But I’ll be Back Soon!

Whew!  It is hard to believe that my move is almost here!  I’m putting the finishing touches on projects, drastically simplifying my life, and getting ready to move next week!  Eek!

I even sold my car since I won’t be needing one living in NYC!  That was SUPER weird to me, because I’ve had a car since I had a driver’s license.  It’s definitely an odd feeling being officially without wheels (even though I have a rental until I leave).

Anyway, with all I have left to do over the next week or so, it’s going to be pretty tough to be 100% sure I get a post up next week.

I don’t want you to think I’ve forgotten you, so I wanted you to know ahead of time that you may not hear from me until mid-June.  I’m hoping to have an interview with another former student athlete ready for you by June 12th.  Then by the following week, I should be back at it.

Please try not to cry…  Seriously, keep it together… If you start crying, I’ll start crying and then we’ll both be one big crying mess. 

Plus, I tend to cry more when I’m stressed anyway so it won’t take much for the waterworks to start…

Going a week or two without a post from me is going to be EXTREMELY difficult to handle, I know ;)   So, to help distract you from the pain of disconnection, I’m providing you with some fantastic blogs and websites full of generally awesome stuff to go check out.

I know a few of these folks personally, and I can vouch that 1- they’re legit and 2- their stuff is awesome.  Some have been blogging longing than others, but they’re ALL worth checking out!

Enjoy!  I’ll be back soon, y’all!
