Thanks for finding your way to That’s G!

enjoying sangria in Madrid.

I’m a UC Berkeley grad with lots of obsessions including working out, Spain, psychology, sarcasm, a good IPA, travel, modern art, pop culture, law, running, and DJ Pauly D. (I also might talk about how I dislike country music, the way people obsess over their pets, traffic, and chain restaurants, but my mom told me I need to “accentuate the positive” so I’ll try not to rant…)

I spent the 2010-2011 academic year living and working in Madrid, Spain as an English teaching assistant – you’ll find accounts of my time there, as well as travel recommendations and trip re-caps on my Travel page. Now I live in LA Post-Spain I went to law school at Loyola and I’m now a practicing attorney in DTLA.

role models include Lauren Conrad and Elle Woods (wish I were kidding).

So follow me and please leave me a comment or ask me a question whenever!

    Hola !!!

    Good blog!! We would like to link exchange with you!!
    We are from Spain, a couple of years ago we decided to leave our jobs and go around the world for a year. After that we decided to start a small business related to travel, called Way Away (http://www.way-away.com ): an online platform to help independent travellers to build their own trip.

    Please send me an email if you are interested to link exchange too

    My name is Lauren and I am contacting you on behalf of Don Quijote language school in Salamanca, Spain. I believe that “That’s G” would be an ideal candidate for our Affiliate Program. Based on a pay per sale scheme, we monitor the traffic you send to our website using cookie-based technology. This allows us to recognize a client that has come from your website, to purchase either a course or accommodation, and adjudicate the sale to you. If you agree to collaborate with us through our Affiliate Program, every time you send us a customer from your site, you’ll earn 15% commission on each sale.

    If this sounds like something you might be interested in, I can be reached via email at seo.en@donquijote.org, or, if you’d like to talk about this by phone, the office number is (34) 923 26 88 60 (you should ask for Lauren as I do not currently have access to my own phone).

    Equally, if you are not interested, please let me know so I can cross you off our mailing list.

    Many thanks

    I am so glad I found your blog!

    I think you are someone who will relate to my blog. You might be able to understand it better than others. Spain and Italy are similar enough- right??


    I hope you enjoy it.

    I’ll keep reading yours.

    No shame in counting Elle Woods as a role model…she was a smart cookie!

    Hope you are doing well!

    I visited your blog thatsg.com earlier today and just wanted to congratulate you on a well presented, and informative blog. I have an article which has content relevant to your site. I am interested to do guest post submission.

    As per Google update we all know that unique and relevant content is more important for a blog. So I want to submit related article or post on your site for free on “Top 10 ways to lead a healthy life” and I just need one clean back link in return. Suggestion from your side is always welcome. So if you are interested please inform me soon.

    Thanks & regards,
    Kristy Jones.

    Hey there, Gillian!

    My name is Mackenna and I work for a company called First Aid Shot Therapy, an over the counter, FDA compliant, single dose liquid relief medication. We offer a range of easy-to-swallow, single-dose products that provide fast-acting relief for your most common everyday symptoms including pain, heartburn, hangovers, and colds.

    I noticed you are very active, and our pain product is perfect for sore muscles after a strenuous workout. The active ingredient is Choline Salicylate, an NSAID that is not as damaging to your liver and stomach as Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen, and a great alternative to other OTC pain medicines out there. It even works 5x quicker!

    We would love to send you some complimentary samples for you to try out and let us know how it worked for you!

    For more info check us out at firstaidshottherapy.com. Talk soon!
