Goodbye and Hello

My new site is (barely) up and running! So I am officially retiring this blog (although it’s been so good to me) and switching over to the new one.

Goodbye, JessLovesNYC.

Hello, Principles of Panache!

Come say hi! 🙂


Stay tuned…

For anyone who still reads this, I will be moving blogs shortly, and it will be quite different! As soon as I figure out all that self-hosting nonsense, it’ll be up. 🙂


December, Already?

Who can believe it? I can’t believe it’s the last month of 2009, and that at no point during this year was I ever in Hong Kong. I was talking to my manager at Thanksgiving and I mentioned how it’s crazy how quickly this year’s flown by, and how this year has been totally crazy. I said, and I quote myself, “I’ve done more this year than I’ve ever done in my life.” He paused and then said, “That is so freaking cool. How many people do you think could really say the same? Think about how cool it is that you can say that!” And then he repeated what I said, and it was only after he said that that I even really thought about it.

Most of the time I just think about how crazy my year’s been, what with working at least 2 jobs for just about half the year, running around like a chicken with my head cut off! But when I think about it, it’s true – it’s pretty freaking cool that I can say I’ve done more than I’ve ever done in my life this year, all at the same time. And sure, it was also definitely pretty stressful at times (and still is at times), but I also feel like I’ve gained so much experience this year in all aspects of life – from applying to jobs, to figuring out and finding a career, to actually moving and apartment hunting and finding roommates and making new friends and all of that…it’s been nuts!

Anyway. That’s all I wanted to say.
