Goals For The New Year: Belize and a New Job

Hopkins, Belize by Sharon Wagner

My goal this year is to slowly but surely improve my life. I will start in two simple ways:

1. Go to Belize
2. Get a new Job

My sister and I have never been to Belize City, Belize, our mother’s hometown. We look forward to meeting family members that we’ve’ve never met, and most importantly, taking in the culture. If you know me then you already know that I am interested in checking out the local music, food, fashion and art. I will keep you posted on that, of course.

Like many people I am on a job hunt. My career growth is at a standstill and I am ready for something new. I specialize in social media marketing – specifically community management and blogger outreach. However, I am ready to learn new things and grow in the online marketing field. I enjoy working with exciting brands and meeting new, creative people. I also have experience in Journalism.

If you know about any openings in the Los Angeles area feel free to let me know in the comments section. Check out my LinkedIn profile so you can get the gist of my overall interests.

What are your goals for 2014?

LIFE, My Life

My Trip to Las Vegas, Nevada

meMe. Smelling the flowers at Bellagio.

Just got back from Las Vegas, Nevada yesterday, and man am I tired. I really enjoyed myself; however, I am so glad to be home with my family. Now that I am all relaxed, it’s time to get back to living normally: working, eating properly, exercising, getting 7-8 hours of sleep, etc., etc., etc – yeah you know, all that healthy stuff.

This was my second visit to Las Vegas, Nevada and my sister’s first visit, so we wanted to see what else the city had to offer besides “The Strip.” Honestly, it was a very interesting experience. We talked to shop owners – locals who know exactly what’s going on besides the pure hype of the big gambling city; We visited University of Las Vegas, the arts district, Fremont Experience (aka Old School Las Vegas), and ate the most delicious Thai food.
