Do What You Love and Starve

Wednesday, December 12th, 2007

I came across this article today and it cracked me up, if only because of the title: Do What You Love and Starve

The hefty dose of cynicism aside, he actually makes some good points regarding how to make a career transition to ‘something you like’, although I’m still an optimist that you can do what you love AND eat well.

I’ve been very busy the past few months – I’ve been to New Caledonia, Fiji, LA, Minneapolis and Las Vegas since October and it’s looking to be a hectic start to the new year too. I’m writing travel guides and marketing the honeymoon registry, along with some writing on the side for MSN, thanks to a wonderful introduction from Leif at KillingBatteries a few months ago. These are all things I love and I’m not starving, so I’ll argue Kiplinger’s a little longer 🙂

Bubble Tea, Girlfriends and LA

Bubble Tea!

This past weekend, after my whirlwind touring of Alabama, I took on L.A. with a group of my sorority sisters from college. We last met up in July of 2005 for Maggie’s wedding and had vowed a reunion every year since.

Mag's 2005 Wedding

Amazingly, six of us met up in L.A. Deej is the only one living there – the rest of us flew in and spent the first night at Yujin’s parents, in Glendale. The second night we crashed out in Marina del Ray at my friend Tim’s place. The third evening I spent with my extended family, down in Orange. A whirlwind trip for sure! I don’t think I’ll get the chance to write much more about it, but it was an awesome time and I’m so glad we were able to make it happen. Now, everyone just has to come visit me in Portland!
