Happy March! 🍀
It is officially the third month of the year and time is really slipping away from me! I can’t believe we are almost done with the first quarter of 2020!But maybe that’s a good thing. I think this year I have started to prioritize taking time for myself in between working. When we all just put our heads down and work insanely long weeks, time seems to drag on forever.
However, when we take that much-needed time for ourselves, we start to enjoy life!
For those of you who read the newsletter last week, you know that I went on a trip with my friends to Joshua Tree national park.
Here is a picture of me with my best friend Chrysantha (yes I am one of the shorties of the group!)
It’s moments like these that make me appreciate having great friends and stepping away from my computer for a couple of days.
I hope everyone gets the opportunity to step away a little bit this week to take some time for themselves.
And now, here’s the Weekly Soundcheck!

💥Silly Scientific Findings
Ashlee Lumley, our podcast manager extraordinaire sent me this article last week: 3D-printed steaks are starting to actually look like meat
We are trying to predict if this will be a food trend at events, but we aren’t sure how we feel about it….
Printed food= less fat and calories right? Maybe this is the hottest new diet trend? Perhaps I’m not as interested since I don’t eat meat in the first place. But the second they start printing out tacos, I’m in!
