Just when I thought it couldn’t get any better…

So I have a membership site about weight loss. As I mentioned in the last entry, I lost 100 pounds, so it’s a passion for me.

Anyway, a lady from Woman’s World found my SALES LETTER and wrote to me and asked if I’d be interested in being in the magazine.

(If nothing else, this is going to be huge for my copywriting business. All she did was look at the sales letter and then contact me!)

We talked back and forth… and next thing I know.. I’m going to be on the cover of Woman’s World Magazine!

They’re doing an entire story on me! They’re flying me out to Los Angeles on Friday where I’m going for my shoot. They’re doing hair, makeup, and clothes.. and then I’ll be interviewed by a writer once I’m done with the pictures.

I don’t know for sure if I can advertise the membership site yet in the article, but like I said…

-It’ll be huge for my copywriting business

-I can advertise the fact that I was in Woman’s World on the sales letter

-I’ll be on the cover of a magazine!!!!

Have I mentioned that I love my life?

Absolute craziness I tell you!

I’ve walked on tightropes before.

I’ve done extreme obstacle courses.

I’ve driven cross country by myself.

I’ve lost 100 pounds.

I’ve gotten in many near-death accidents, including one where I flipped off a median, went across 3 lanes of traffic, and went head-on with a tractor trailer.

I’ve broken an arrow against my throat.

I’ve worked 70-80 hours a week while taking full time classes at university.

I enlisted at a Warrior Camp by myself (and if I told you about all the crazy things that I did there, you’d be blown away).

I made somewhat of a snap decision to quit a cushy full time job in order to go into business for myself.

For a 24 year old, I’ve been through a bit.

But NOTHING has prepared me for…

Driving the hills of San Francisco.


I was driving to find my hostel today, and let me tell you, it was RIDICULOUSLY SCARY!

People had tried warning me about them, but I always kind of ignored them, because people are always warning me about the idiotic stuff that I put myself through.

I tell you though…

Those hills are nuts!!!

As the self proclaimed worst driver in the world, I acknowledge that some of it could be my fault. But… you drive up those hills, and you have no idea where you’re going. You come to a flat stop at the top, and you kind of end up hanging off the top… because you can’t drive further (if there’s a red light), but you don’t want to lay hanging down on the hill without any sight of where you’re going.

Oooor, there’s traffic lights right in the middle of those godforsaken hills. Every time someone got close to me when we stopped, I started getting nervous, thinking that I was going to back into them once I hit the gas.

The downward ones aren’t any better… once again, you have no idea where you’re going to end up, and you keep thinking that you’re going to hit things.

I literally yelled when I encountered my first uphill. I wasn’t expecting it! A guy on the corner looked at me like I was a lunatic.

And the drivers aren’t exactly the most empathetic.

…and that’s all I have to say about San Francisco for the moment.

Still having a blast!

I’m still in San Diego and absolutely loving it!

It’s so laid back here… I definitely really dig the vibe. People are awesome and everyone smiles at each other on the streets. People are telling me that I’m going to like San Francisco even more than San Diego, which is hard to fathom, but I guess we’ll see!

(Actually, I think I might like L.A. slightly more than San Diego, but it could’ve just been that I was with Jaime the entire time. I’ll have to re-evaluate. :))

I’ve been staying at a hostel in San Diego, which is really interesting. It’s so weird how people refer to hostel-mates as “The Australian Girl” or “The Norwegian couple” or whatever. I really love meeting all the different types of people, though… I’ve been having a lot of fun with that, and getting myself into all sorts of new situations.

Hmm, so what have I been up to… went to the San Diego Zoo, Mission and La Jolla beaches, the outlet centers, Seaport Village, the Horton Plaza, and Balboa Park… had a good time in all of them. I really, really loved Balboa Park.

I actually met this fascinating man at Balboa Park one day. His father has written 17 different books, and has been a professor of psychology for over 40 years. I got his phone number (!!!!), and I’m going to call him and hopefully get to discuss some of the 493 million questions that I have for him.

I think I decided that I’m going to go to Europe for a lot of months. I mean, I’m paying $23 a night for a hostel, which is $6xx per month. I might as well just get a new apartment in a new city every month in Europe and/or South America, and just explore to my heart’s content.

Being an Internet Marketer is amazing!

What else..

Ohhh, I’m stopping in Laguna Beach on the way to San Francisco. I stole the phone number of the guy with the elevator in his beach house (I’m really good at that) and gave him a call… he invited me back to his house, and they’re going to have a BBQ when I come up. How neat is that!?

I don’t think there’s too much else to report, although I probably should be more religious in my blog postings, as I’m sure I’m missing a ton.

Ohhh, and Happy Birthday (although it’s a day late… but I did call on time :)) to Jason Henderson (aka Mr. Sexist!)


Edit: If anybody wants to come to Las Vegas for my 25th birthday on September 25th, let me know! I expect it to be an amazing time!
