++ I admit it, I am a terrible blogger with my sporadic once a week (sometimes if you're lucky twice a week posts). To be really honest though, I'm not upset about it. There's been a lot happening around here lately and I am trying to really enjoy my day to day life without being glued to my social media sites. I really needed to get to a point where I could unplug without feeling bad and I think I have finally gotten there!
++ Earlier this year I took the last part of my Certification of Internal Audit exam and I failed. The reason this fail hurt so bad? I studied like a mad woman. Every day for hours at a time I would sit at the coffee shop and read til my head was spinning. I did approximately 1900 questions and then re-did them all again days before my exam. And when I went in to take my test, there were topics on there that had NEVER been covered in my study materials. Needless to say, I was so beyond livid and frustrated that I saw nothing but red for a few days. But since there's nothing I can do about it (and the study materials have finally been updated to reflect the information which WAS in the last test) I'm hopping back on the horse for another try. Wish me luck, folks. I just need this one last exam to get my certification!
++ I've been attending Barre3 classes about 3-4 times a week and I am loving them. I used to do The Bar Method back in Houston and I forgot how much I loved this workout! I always walk out feeling like I got worked over and then get all gung-ho excited for my next class. Added bonus: I'm seeing some serious changes in my flexibility which I am loving!
++ I started reading All the Lights We Cannot See, but am putting it on hold so I can read Paper Towns and watch the movie before it leaves the screens in Manila! Has anyone seen it yet? Worth the watch?
++ Our next couple of months are absolutely INSANE with travel and I am SO looking forward to it. Up next: Singapore for a weekend, Seoul for a weekend, Vietnam for a week and then a trip to our new home area for a house hunting trip...and since I've been teasing y'all with it forever, want to know where we're moving to? (Pending everything continues to work out as planned)
AMSTERDAM!!!! I'm so beyond excited I cannot contain myself. Such a fun new adventure to look forward to and I am super pumped that we will be there for Christmas time this year! I'm a cold-weather kinda gal and this new move is going to be awesome!
So, who's coming over to visit?!
Hope y'all are having a fabulous week friends! XO
