Ok so last week was pretty amazing.
I made a promise to myself in march saying "April was going to be MY month!"
I need to be proactive about the positive changes I want to see in my life...
Anyway, so I got a job on Tuesday. A job in graphic design. A job doing what I went to school for. A job doing, what I think, I'm good at. Hallelujah!
It's with a new marketing group called "Riceldon Marketing Group". They are owned by a guy who owns a lot of other random things- a swimming pool company, a marine construction company, a biker bar, and a general contractor company. I feel like I've been exposed to a lot of entrepreneurship type people lately... It's inspiring. Anyway, so I am the in-house graphic artist! Woo! It's not AMAZING pay or anything, but hey- it's a job, it's a job doing something that I like, and it's enough to help me start moving out! PRAISE JESUS. Something else that will hopefully happen in April :o)
Also, I had a date on Friday night.
I know, everyone catch their gasps.
It was with a friend of mine's husband's brother. If you can follow that. I met him at their wedding in July of 2007, and at the time, he had a girlfriend. He was my person to walk down the aisle with- foreshadowing? We shall see! haha...
He was very sweet, we went to dinner & then down to the Marsh Walk and listened to some music. It was nice to be out of the house, with a boy.
We went to the beach to sit on Saturday & out to lunch before he had to go back to VA. He's in the Navy, stationed in Norfolk. So that's kind of a bummer... We'll see what happens though- I'm just excited about the prospects. This coming from a girl who hasn't gone in a date in seriously about 3 years... It's crazy how much one person can hurt you and make you think ill of all people with X & Y Chromosomes.
More good news? You know it!
Gap was having an AMAZING sale this weekend and I was able to purchase a sweater/jacket I've been wanting FOREVER. For real, every time I went in there I'd just feel it. Well, it was on sale, along with some other really cute stuff- AND they were having a buy 4 things on sale and get an extra 30% off! Oh yea, I scored.
I got some other stuff, but nothing as amazing as the waffle sweater!
Is it sad that clothes make me that happy? If it's wrong, I definitely don't want to be right!
I also got a grown-up watch. It's my Easter present from my parents. Jenna & I were at JCPenny looking for a watch for her... and I came across this cute little one... they were having crazy deals- 25% off and then an additional 15% off! It still ended up being more expensive then I would have paid, but since I have a big girl job, a big girl watch is totally required, right? Right. It's like a piece of jewelry too, it's kinda loose around my wrist so it dangles all pretty-like. I love it. I keep looking at it and just shaking my wrist around.
So Yea, job, date, sweater & watch. Not too shabby!
Oh, I also washed my sheets today! I LOVE clean sheets!
And everyone needs to download Kings of Leon "Use Somebody". I'm really loving them at the moment.
I hope everyone else is having a great start to April! Yay for Idol tomorrow :o)
