October 2019 Monthly Recap

October has been an action packed month, with tons of travel. It feels so good to have a few hours at home this Sunday to write this post and get myself together after being on the move!
Click to read now or pin to save for later! Check out what I was up to in October, with a lot of time spent in Disney

A professional highlight was opening the latest Women in Sales Everywhere panel. WISE is an organization I'm involved in in the capacity of content chair (check out our Instagram and blog!), and I helped connect Looker with WISE for our October event. It was exciting to kick off the discussion and my dream is to speak on a panel one day!

I've felt the happiest this month since moving to the city. It's almost like the summer felt like I was on vacation - like living in the city wasn't permanent. Now, when I'm taking walks in Central Park with Joe and hitting up the Met every free weekend, it finally feels real. Not going to lie, I teared up a bit looking at this view and realizing that my dream has become reality!

Mama and Papa came into the city and we visited Hamilton's Grange. Very cool to see where he lived and learn more about his life. That weekend Joe and I played quite a bit of Forbidden Island and Nina came for a visit too!


A local bar had a Disney movie trivia night, so you better bet we were there! We came in 4th place and were very proud of ourselves. Our team name (Put that thing back where it came from or so help me) was a big hit.

I headed off to North Carolina for a Women in Data event, and when I got back Joe and I went to the NY Historical Society for free Friday nights.

The following week I was in Atlanta for a happy hour and a few meetings, and that weekend I jetted off to Orlando for a weekend in Disney with Casey!




We went to Epcot on Sunday and I had a conference from Monday to Thursday. The conference was a great opportunity for me to perfect my Looker pitch and to refine my understanding of where we are in the data analytics space. All that aside...the conference closed down Magic Kingdom for us one night and I lost my mind! We got all the food and ice cream we wanted for free and I was so excited to go on the rides and meet characters. Major perk that comes along with all the travel.



I came home and had a hot second to rest, then the next day we headed to Jersey to visit with my and Joe's family. We also went to a Halloween party and made an interesting pair.

What has your month been like?
