Hey, long time no see! So the past months have been kinda crazy, but in a good way: I got a new job! Or, not entirely new… it’s actually my old job with a twist.
My old company shut down and I became unemployed, but not completely. We had a pretty cool photo development service that we were building and maintaining, and that particular service was actually sold off to a company in Stockholm. So main company shuts down, but this particular service will live on under new ownership.
As it turned out though, these Stockholmers were not only interested in the code, but also in the people who wrote the code. I.e. me and my back-end developer colleague. I.e. they offered us a job! I started on March 15. ✌ 😀
I will continue to do front-end work on this photo service and also take on the sites and services of my new employer. I’m doing a lot more design work now too, which is super fun. It is all pretty exciting actually!
Since we live in almost the opposite end of the country this will have to be remote work.

It’s been almost 40 days since our wedding and how does it feel? About the same lol I’m not really sure if I expected it to feel different? I really don’t know. Eddie and I talked about it some over the last few days and have come to the conclusion that that’s a very good […]

Hello Lovelies,For almost three years, you've all known me here at AGOB. However, I've had many other blogs in that time, many other sites I'd run, all aimed at different audiences. All of them were a genuine part of me, but none of them were completely me. I'd have different parts of me on different sites and everyone knew a slightly different Sarah. My real life friends knew me as one Sarah online, some online friends knew me as another Sarah, and others knew me as yet another Sarah.I've decided that this isn't how I want to do this anymore. It's exhausting trying to figure out where I'll post a certain thing and where I won't post another. I want to be integral. I want to be the same person here as I would be anywhere else. I don't want people to know different versions of me.Which I why I've decided it's time to move. It's time to move from having four blogs to one. It's time to be real wherever I am. So I'm moving to a site called Meraki, the definition of which is "the soul, creativity, or love put into something; the essence of yourself that is put into your work". I want to put all of me into my work, not just parts. So what I've done is I've taken posts from different blogs and compiled a selection of them on this new blog. That'll be the blog I'll post on from now on. The only one. So if you'd like to keep in touch, and I hope you do, come over and follow me there! It's been an incredible journey with you all and I'm definitely going to miss the security and comfort of AGOB, but I know this is what I need to do. So for the last time here at least, this is Sarah signing off on A Glimpse of Blue.

August, oh August. I frankly don’t know how I would describe this month. It contained an equal amount of highs and lows. I found my moods swinging from being happy and feeling great one week and then rapidly sinking down the next week. It was an inevitable cycle. But I’m positive September will be better. For […]

So I have their songs stuck in my head now thanks to the ads that was strategically placed every time I want to hear a Halsey song on Youtube. BLACKPINK – BOOMBAYAH (붐바야) BLACKPINK – Whistle (휘파람) (Darn, I need to fix my site’s encoding. It irks me that foreign characters come out as a […]

I have never been a “natural athlete.” I have never had talents for the athletics, and I trip over air periodically. Knowing this (I guess I was always a slow slothy child), my parents put me through vigorous athletic childhood. I swam for 10 years (2 to 12 years old), and played tennis for almost...Continue Reading

This year I’ll be celebrating Mother’s Day… with a brand new Birth Control! That’s right kids. I’m taking charge of my reproductive health. A woman can make these decisions, you know. It’s a thing now. I was inspired to write about it due to a HuffPo piece this week. Women have been sharing their stories […]

Happy New Year all you cuties! I hope you all had a wonderful time with friends and family! For my Christmas break, I ended up spending time with family and friends. It was a lovely time off and great to catch up with everyone, but I felt that tired hosting so many parties! I think […]

It’s been a long while since I last updated my blog and I do apologize about that. I have been steadily busy with other things that at this moment right now, seem a little less important compared to what I am about to discuss. I … Continue reading The Truth About Abuse

It turns out my motivation at completing writing prompts is pretty low. In the beginning of the month I was going to do a bunch of the posts and liked the ideas and then it never happened. Early in October...
