A Mindful Geek Update

Where did Brittany go?

After 6 months of unemployment, hours of job searching and days of depression…I finally got a job. This came so abruptly that I started the very next day. I had no time to process any of it. I am 3 weeks in now and finally able to breathe. On top of being a mom, girlfriend, employee, blogger…I am also a full time student in college.
