What's Playing On My Headphones Right Now

If you see me at work, chances are I have headphones on and am listening to a podcast. Working on a mindless spreadsheet? Podcast. Trying to drown out random office chatter? Podcast. Need to stretch my legs? Podcast. Going down to the gym for a workout? Podcast. Stuck on a horrible 1 hour conference call? I'D RATHER BE LISTENING TO A PODCAST.

Here's a short list of what I'm listening to at the moment.

Professional/Marketing Inspo: Marketing Trends

True Crime: Crime Junkie, Criminal

News: The Daily

2020 New Year's Resolutions

Happy 2020! Writing New Year's Resolution posts have become a welcomed time for me to reflect on the past year and what I've been able to accomplish. This year I missed every single resolution I set for 2019.

Every. Single. One.

But you know what I did manage? I managed to BF Harrison until his first birthday after s t r u g g l i n g through a year of low milk supply. I fit into some of my old jeans but have a long way before I lose the baby weight. Parker knows how to read and spell and is excelling at math. He's also becoming a sweat in Fortnite. I knomari'ed our belongings and donated so much. Harrison has his new hearing aid in and keep us on on our toes.  Tuan continues to be our rock and the more responsible parent, always hustling, always making moves, always keeping everyone looking fresh. I started a new position at work and am no longer managing events. For the first time in my professional life I feel like a complete newbie and am out of my comfort zone.

So much growth has happened this year and I'm looking looking forward to building on that growth in 2020. Cheers to a new decade everyone!

2019 Resolutions Recap

1. Read 25 books.
Something about having a new busy baby and starting a new position at work really cut into my reading time this year. I didn't hit goal but I did manage to read 15 books. Recommendations: Dopesick by Beth Macy, Becoming by Michelle Obama, Pachinko by Min Jin Lee.

2. Get rid of acne scars with aggressive face peels.
Harrison is (mostly) off the boob and I can start this now!

3. Finish 12 weeks of BBG.
This definitely didn't happen. Not even a little. However, I have purchased a subscription to the new Sweat app so 2020 will be the year.

4. Go on hot dates with Tuan at least once a month.
We don't get to spend as much one on one time together as we would like but we managed to see a Trevor Noah comedy show and visit some local restaurants together. I have to say that I love all the gray streaks showing up in Tuan's hair.

2020 Resolutions

1. Read 20 books

2. Finish 12 weeks of BBG

3. Take the Chuao chocolate food tour

4. Visit 2 new cities
