21/100: Got a salary job!

I got a job as a run coordinator, building a team for my organization’s charity running program! It’s a dream, I absolutely love it, and it sort of fell right into my lap. It’s still a nonprofit salary-not the best-but the enjoyment I get out of it makes it MORE THAN WORTH IT!

20/100: Learned how to make espresso drinks (lattes, mochas, macchiatos...)

I worked at Starbucks while I was job-hunting for a salary job, and I LOVED it. Well, not entirely true—I hate retail and the hours in general, and the customers who think they know everything. But on the whole it’s a great company to work for. I loved my coworkers, and I loved my regular customers even MORE! I like knowing how to make the good drinks… and I want my own milk steamer and espresso machine. (;

19/100: Rode a motorcycle!

A real one, a Gold Wings motorcycle! A fellah that I work with at the Census Bureau is this endearing old hippie from New York who works as Santa during the Christmas season, if that gives you a better mental image. He learned that I’ve never ridden a motorcyle, and he insisted that I come for a ride! We went to McDonald’s for lunch today and then he drove me around. It was fun! I like riding as a passenger, but I don’t know if I’d want to drive my own bike. He said his bike weighs like 900 lbs, but the smaller bikes don’t have little trunks or comfy, sofa-like seats.
