All About Sophia
This is where I ramble on about various topics... once in awhile, when I'm feeling particularly ambitious, there might even be pictures!
The last few weeks have been completely insane. My boss left for another great opportunity and I was mentally bracing myself to help pick up the slack until we found a replacement, but I was asked to take on the role of Editor-in-Chief. (!!!) It took me a week to let it all sink in. After having worked closely with Ricardo here at GameSpot, I knew that this job was not going to be easy and that I will likely be stressed out permanently. (but I still love it!) To be honest, when I made the decision to switch careers and move into video games, I really wasn't gunning for any kind of position. I just wanted to be surrounded by games and talk about games all day. Turns out I am pretty organized and apparently management likes that I've been so incredibly lucky and blessed, and I wouldn't be where I am today if it weren't for the wonderful people I've worked with at GameSpot, especially Ricardo, who taught me almost everything I know. (about yelling at people mostly. lol, just kidding. No not really.)
I still really like this community and I've been a part of it for so long, it's hard to leave but I'm excited to see what my team at GR can do. I'm on Facebookand Twitterso please stay in touch, and if you want to keep up with Bailey, he's got his own Facebook page and Tumblr too.http://thingsiputonmydogshead.tumblr.com/
Even if I'm not going to blog here, I will check PMs and lurk on YOUR blogs. Those of you who have messaged me in the past, know that I will always respond
GamesRadar has a lot of exciting plans in the next year, so I hope that we cross paths again on the internets!
Sophia & Bailey
Bailey turned 9 today! I took him swimming, as I normally would for his birthday. I used to take him to Monterey, but since he can't run like a crazy person off leash, I decided to take him to a closer park that has a smaller swimming area for dogs and he seemed to enjoy it. I may take him more this summer, since it's good exercise and low impact for his leg. He's pretty pooped now. He got a doggie donut cookie and big doggy biscuit that says happy birthday (you can see below on his head). I take a picture with him every year, can't believe he's 9 already! He brings me so much joy, I don't know what I'd do without him.
Sorry to @GunnyHath who has been waiting for the Minecraft server to go back up. It keeps getting reset so it goes back down. Will get it back tonight! If anyone else wants to join, it's126.96.36.199.
It's Bailey's birthday this weekend so I"ll try to have a post with some pictures It'll be 2 months tomorrow since his surgery and he's been walking and playing just fine. I can't let him run yet, but he is gaining his strength back slowly so I'm happy and relieved.
I've added some new photos on his tumblr here:http://thingsiputonmydogshead.tumblr.com/
Things have otherwise been going well at GamesRadar. Lots of changes happening, but I'll update when I get around to it. I do miss GameSpot still, but I know you guys are doing well so that makes me happy
Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Some people just don't have opinions. Like Sophia.
Sophia does not have any recent activity. What a slacker! Maybe you should send Sophia a private message and ask, "Where are you hiding?"
