It’s March 1st. To be completely honest I did not expect to get here with no substantial job opportunity in place. In fact, I assumed (yes, I know what happens when one assumes) that I’d be working again by now.
I did hear that a fellow sabbaticaleer has landed a new gig that he will be starting next week. Unfortunately this does not open any doors for me, but I am very happy for him. Time to step up my game.
Workout Hard, Eat Good Food
I put in a solid hour of exercising (thirty minutes each on an elliptical and stationary bike) at LA Fitness yesterday before “ruining” it at Elmyriachi in Kirkwood. A tampinqueno burrito (grilled steak, caramelized onions, and jalapenos, topped with house-made verde, drizzled with queso, and served with rice and refried beans — $9.75), basket of chips and salsa, and one Sweetwater 420 was the order of the day, and holy cats was it good.
I also got a bit of a show from the young couple nearby who leaned in for kisses every once in awhile.
Today I’ll be eating lunch with my friend Hank. Hank now works in an office building near Spring/17th so I will pop into the Atlantic Station LA Fitness for a workout beforehand.
After lunch I will be hunkering down to do some coding to prepare for future job interviews.
Mixing It Up
Tonight I will be attending another Urban Explorers of Atlanta event, this time it’s a “Mix & Mingle”. Given that I am usually bad at both “mixing” and “mingling” this may be a challenging event for me, but I need to learn how to network better.
Okay, I have to run as my window of opportunity for writing today’s blog is closing. Make it a good one.
