Best Things of the Week!

I’m not feeling super great today, so this will be both a short post and a way to cheer myself up.

1. I’m Certifiable!

A few weeks ago, I took a class at Dakota County Technical College; this week, I found out I passed — I am now a Certified Master of Social Media.

Internet, you just got owned.

Does this mean I know everything there is to know about social media? Obviously not. But I do have a good knowledge base and a good idea of how to keep up on this world. (’90s Rachel still can’t believe this is her life, by the way)

2. Lazy Saturday – my life isn’t all pedicures and shoe shopping

Look, sometimes a girl just wants to kick back with an old friend, grab some beer and some delivery Chinese, and play some SuperNintendo.

As a Master of Social Media it's important to keep up on new technology.

3. Boooooo!

My love of ghost tours is already established.  I fell in love with the Wabasha Street Caves in St. Paul during a tour last year.  The speakeasy/gangster history gets me (Tommy gun marks in the fireplace!), and it’s on the list of most haunted places in Minnesota.

My fellow ghost-hunting enthusiast Sabrina flew in for a visit this weekend and we decided to visit the Caves for the monthly “All Souls” Tour.  It was almost more fun – and creepier – than last time.  I absolutely recommend this place and can’t wait to go on the other tour offerings.  Particularly the gangster tour.
