Sick Chick Club Update

This past Thursday night, three Sick Chicks got together at Nooch in Chelsea for some cocktails, mocktails and thai treats (sadly, one of our crew wasn't able to make it, but she was there in spirit!). For me, it was bittersweet as it was my last Sick Chick NYC gathering, and I will really miss seeing the awesome and inspiring women I have recently met through it, but know that'll we'll stay in touch- thank god for the internet, right?
And, if you are in the Baltimore area, let me know as we already have a small contingent in the works, and once I'm firmly settled in, I will be arranging a Sick Chick Baltimore Happy Hour to keep the movement going.
Check out Sick Chick Jodi Mckee's new portrait project! Jodi is a fantastic photographer and is using her creative talents to fight back against the invisible nature of autoimmune disorders by taking portraits of those of us with these often hidden diseases. She writes, 'I want to give a face to these diseases to inform my friends and family at least, and the world at best, that we really aren't "too young to have that" and that even though we "don't look sick," we are. And we need your care and support.'
I was lucky enough to be the kick-off portrait for her project (and damn, did she make me look good!), and she is looking for others who would like to volunteer to become a part of it. To learn more and volunteer, check out Jodi's project on here and help spread the word about her endeavor! The more buzz, the better.
My Life in Numbers
Days left at my old job: 4.5
Days left as a New Yorker: 11
Days left till I am an official resident of Baltimore: 14

Bear with me through the move and my trip! With everything going on, I'm not able to devote the time or brain space to blogging, but I will be much better once I am finally settled in at the end of September. I will try to post as much as possible, even while I'm in the Middle East, so please keep checking in here or, better yet, on my facebook page for updates.
Have a fabulous August, and I'll see you in another city!
