Helloooooo. It’s already been over two weeks since my last post and besides that it’s been months and months since I wrote a real life update. I’m not sure when my blog got a LOT less personal, but I remember back when I first started writing I shared a lot of stories about my life and I just don’t do that anymore. I guess my life got boring🙊 So here’s the lowdown on my life lately.
I’m running in a half marathon on the 24th. Kinda freaking out about it especially because I thought I was following a 12 week training program and just today realized it was a 16 week one…so I’m definitely four weeks behind fml. So hopefully just bumping up my runs to 4-6 miles 3-4x/week will help me get ready in time because as of now I can only run 5! Yikes! Anyone have any crash half marathon training tips?
I’ve started my own business, Kova Creative. It’s a full-service social media agency (I might be the only agent so far but whatever!) that I’ve been thinking of starting for about six months now, so I’m pumped that I’m finally getting finished with all the legal stuff/it’s officially named/the website is finished!
Ilhan and I are going to Coachella this year. We bought our tickets last year in like June or something so idk how I haven’t mentioned this before but there’s that.
Chaya passed away very unexpectedly back in February. I didn’t mention it yet because I didn’t want to talk about it…it’s still hard for me to think about. We’re on the hunt for another friend for Nala so she doesn’t get super lonely but she’s picky about who she rooms with.
I’ve gone 85% pescatarian! I’m planning on eventually transitioning to vegetarianism, but for now this switch has been difficult enough. I’ve done a really good job at ordering strictly seafood when I’m out, the only time I go back to other meats is when I’m at my parents’ house or if I get drunk food or something haha. I’m going to do a more extensive post on this transition later this week (it really has been an experience haha) with more details about why I switched etc.
Also I’m going to try posting 3 times a week instead of 5…I think shooting for 5 is what made me burn out every time I’ve gotten consistent this year so far.
So what have you guys been up to?
