Hello SkinnyOffice! I’m back! It’s been almost a year since we were posting every day, and though Elena has moved onto greener pastures, I’m going to try to resume posting a few times a week. I mostly want to start writing again because I’ve spent the better part of the past year eating, accumulating a long list of Skinny Snacks in the process, and I feel like it would simply be a crime not to share! Some things other than my jean size that have changed since SkinnyOffice 1.0 (I will call this reincarnation of SkinnyOffice the 2.0 version, much like Justin Bieber did with his My World albums).
1. Elena and I have remained good friends but now we are also tennis partners. We’re not exactly on the Olympic track (actually, we’re not even ready to play anyone but each other), but Elena studies pictures to perfect her groundstrokes and I’ve started wearing glasses when we play, so we are (hopefully) making progress. If you read at all last year, you might remember that this isn’t our first athletic endeavor.
2. Elena, who does things like drive below the speed limit and read the contract at the gym before signing it (and thus has zero speeding tickets and does not owe Equinox $1,200), will finally put her allegiance to the law to good use when she moves up to Boston in the fall FOR LAW SCHOOL!! And it’s great for me too, as I will certainly need a lawyer in the near future.
3. Over the past 12 months, while Elena was studying for the LSATs and buying dress pants at J. Crew to prepare for a future of academia, I underwent one of the least rigorous training programs in the history of sport and am now able to stand on a balance board for 30 minutes; I went to London and got my haircut at the same salon Kate Middleton goes to; and I learned how to use WordPress a little better. Hopefully one of these things will come in handy at some point in my life.
I’ll be back soon with some new snack options, so stay tuned!
