I'm going to skip the "I can't believe I haven't written in so long" so, <insert whining here>.
This past week, I've been lucky enough to have stayed 3 nights in Redondo Beach, here in Southern California. It's about 30 minutes west of Los Angeles and it was my first time there. I was thrilled when my company decided to have a conference there! Living in L.A can get kind of lame when it comes to conferences and summits because they tend to 'bring' the events to L.A - and of course, since I live in L.A, I don't get to pack up and fly. I guess it's a form of a #humbebrag?
Anyway, since Redondo Beach happens to be quite far from my home and can be a traffic nightmare, I got the OK to to stay at the hotel where they held the conference. I. Was. Stoked. 3 whole days to spend in Redondo Beach - yay!
I had such a blast at the conference, too. My two bosses attended as well but we weren't seated together and I ended up meeting a ton of new people. I continuously feel blessed that I've been given this opportunity because every single person there was older and more experienced than I am in this position. I learned so much from them and excited about the new connections I've made.
I ended up not having that much time to explore the city but I was just happy to be by the beach. Who knew this city girl's heart gets tugged by the beach? I loved it. I never hang out on my hotel patio but I spent hours there this past week just absorbing the beach fragrance and view (our hotel was right by the beach).
I'm halfway through the busy work schedule. I'm mid-convention again that started Sunday until tomorrow and then I'm off to D.C the following Monday for a whole week. That will temporarily end my conference season - phew!
