Well it has been a long time since I posted anything on the blog, and I hope that I can change that going forward. I did want to just write a short update of why I haven’t been posting. It’s been tough to find some free time in the last few months to take care of the blog. Here is a rundown of what has been going on in the last few months:
1) At the end of June, I purchased a house. This was both a huge financial commitment and time commitment. I’ve spent a lot of time doing repairs in the house and then painting the entire house. As a first time home owner, I didn’t realize how much work there is to do outside the house too!

2) Shortly after buying the house, I started business school part-time at Carnegie Mellon’s Tepper School of Business. The school is amazing and challenging at the same time. Classes are Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm. It was really difficult to adjust to this schedule at first, but I am finally getting used to it. I pretty much spend my Saturdays at Carnegie Mellon too because of group assignments and studying. We actually just finished our first Mini (we have 2 classes every 7 weeks). I had a probability and statistics class and financial and managerial accounting class.
It’s been a challenging and busy couple months, but I feel like I am finally getting organized. A lot of the work with the house is done and I have more time to focus on school and work now. Right now, I’m enjoying a week off before my next two classes start!
