It's Sunday, the 8th of July (that's impressive because days are hard to remember now) and I'm lying in my hotel bed in Springfield, Connecticut. I never thought I'd be here, but my buddy Kevin lived here through undergrad and told me to check out this gnarly pizza place. So I did and now I'm… Continue reading Ay Ay Ay, I’m on Vacation
Started this particular blog post on June 30th, 2017 and I'm finally coming full circle with it. As a small caveat: Mom, I hope know you're proud that your third son just finished college. That makes three. Thanks for being there when we needed you and thanks for helping us grow up. Congrats, Sal! Have fun… Continue reading Happy Mother’s Day, Mama
Currently: Sitting upright in my bed drinking straight out of a half-gallon of chocolate milk listening to I Can't Stand It by Blossoms. A relatively unknown song - that's kind of how I roll.

It's been a rough one for me, likely because last summer was spent traveling the country without restrictions and this summer has been spent starring at a computer screen, attending meetings, and being indoors most days. What in the world can I do to fix this? Well, as… Continue reading Showing Gratitude
Lately, I've been in a rut. Trying to balance out future career decisions with frustrations and turnover during our slow season at work. I'm fresh off of back surgery and the slight loss of feeling in my right glute is making the muscle soreness last longer than it should. I find myself utterly bored with… Continue reading happiness
When I decided to change my name on social media accounts from UITourGuide to LifeAfterLopez I couldn't really tell you what was going through my head. I would by lying if I said that giving up the handle UITourGuide wasn't a difficult decision though. I credit a lot of my personality to the time I… Continue reading Why LifeAfterLopez?
Laying in bed for four weeks with a lot of time to think made me slightly loopy. I had all these big ideas - like I often do - but was not physically ready to act on them. I recently had a surgery on my lower back (3/10/17) that literally took the life out of… Continue reading Why I Decided to Start a Blog
