Okay, so basically, I’m stuck with work and working out and making healthier meals. Which is all fine and dandy, but if I’m going to be single, I’d like to at least be hanging out with guys or going out or figuring out where I’ll be eventually earning a Ph.D. Yeesh. Is that too much to ask?

I have a busy, busy month ahead of me. Over the course of the next few weeks, I’ll be in Savannah, GA; Los Angeles, CA; and Las Vegas, NV. Jetsetter.
