What Have I Been Up To

So, my New Year's resolution to keep up on my blog has only partially been realized, and obviously not on this blog.  I've been pretty good about updating BiCoastalBites, so there's that.

Anyway, let's get down to it, what have I been up to?  Lots of things!

Online Computer Classes - Thanks to my friend Amanda I discovered I could take a ton of different classes about computer programming online via Skillshare.  I took the HTML/CSS course and am now in the middle of a Javascript course.  I'm going to be a freakin' computer genius.  Really I signed up for these classes so that I can have more control over my blogs, and things I post online.  It's nice to kind of have a base for what's going on.  I'm working on a website to help market myself as a contractor for office work in the Bay Area.  Once my site is done I'll definitely let everyone know.

Cooking Classes - I discovered an awesome new cooking school in San Francisco that offers fun beginner courses, SF Cooking School.  I'm loving it so far and anticipate signing up for more classes in the future.  You can read more about my experience at the cooking classes here.

Blorpy: My friend Emad started a fun site that shares real life stories, and he asked me to help find and post them.  So every day I look around online, reading people's comments and shared stories and then help filter them on Blorpy. 

Visitors - My sister, Melinda, and her friend, Joel, just came to visit for Melinda's 23rd birthday.  We made sure to drink too much, eat too much, and get lots of sleep.  In other words, we had a good time.  Bob and I took them up to Napa for wine tastings at Cuvaison and Domaine Carneros.  It was a gorgeous day for drinking wine and relaxing.

We also went to an Electric Six concert at The Independent.  This was my first concert at this venue, and I'm glad I saved myself for this concert in particular.  I had an absolutely fantastic time!  If you ever have the chance to see Electric Six in concert, do it!  

And on a sad note, my grandfather, Milton E. Wadsworth passed away on January 31st.  Everyone in the family knew it was coming but you can never prepare for the death of someone you love.  I was able to make it home for the funeral and it was really great to be surrounded by the family and share our stories about Grandpa, and what an awesome and influential guy he was to all of us.  It also gave me a chance to really see all my cousins in a different light.  I'm related to so many talented and wonderful people and it's nice that we all have each other.

I'll try to keep up on this blog more often, especially because I have a big event coming up.  March 23rd marks my 30th birthday, and we're doing it up right with a big party!

Loves and kisses,
