And just like that, itâ€™s December. We still grossly low on snow up here in the Rocky Mountains but the weather has taken a turn for the colder [much colder] so I guess we can officially say winter has arrived. Finally. The resorts opened 3+ weeks behind schedule which meant those of us lucky enough to snag mountain jobs were stuck with an extra 3 weeks of free time, sans paycheck.
Iâ€™ve also managed to survive long enough to make it to my “forever 29” birthday while forgetting to grow up in any capacity. Turns out being 30 really isnâ€™t that bad! Seriously, zero complaints with where life is going right now. Hereâ€™s whatâ€™s going down in my life, currently…
…ranÂ the Big Backyard Ultra in TN on a whim + sorta surprised myself with the outcome.
…back in Colorado for the winter with another seasonal job, sleeping in a real bed!
…immersing myself back into the medical field, slowly but surely.
…mastering the art of chasing down buses + surviving a bus-mute.
…finally finishing books, courtesy of Audible + online libraries! #pocketperson
…jumping out of perfectly functional planes, just for fun.
…digging around in the CMCâ€™s course catalog for some interesting spring semester classes.
…watching Robb chase Max around the living room; my friends are weird.
…being extremely thankful for the weird friends I do have, they help me feel normal!
…attempting to do budgeting math + never loving the numbers.
…half-heartedly attempting to put myself out there + discovering that dating is a LOT of work.
…rather unfulfilled by the new Gilmore Girl episodes — learn something from your past, people!
…finally found my way to the summit of Buffalo Mountain, my backyard mountain!
…picking up all of the extra hours + working my way back into 60+ hour weeks. Phew.
…snagged myself a birthday present — one way flights back to Switzerland come April!
…discovering new ways to spend my money — while getting outside. #worthit
…kinda, sorta forgetting how to run; especially when it comes to legit training.
…embracing my daily dress code + rediscovering my ability to look cute with a little creativity.
As I read through all of this Iâ€™m seeing itâ€™s all quite positive. In the grand scheme of things; life really has been quite positive! This either means reality is about to punch me in the face or…Iâ€™ve finally found my happy medium in this world. I guess weâ€™ll just have to wait + see.
