Kara has been shoulding the STS meme for the last two weeks, so I thought it would be nice to return the favor and actually do my part in running this joint. This be MY space for today!
So, I finally have a new job.
Two days into my new job, I was called for two other jobs that were better. After a bout of crying on the bathroom floor for a few hours, I decided to make it work. I'll have a much better resume for next year, after fulfilling my contract with my new position, and all I can do is move ahead and know that things happen to us all of the time. Maybe not for a reason, but they do happen, and we have to make the best of it. There is really no use in obsessing over every decision and second guess myself. Also, I just learned on Friday that I will be able to move into my apartment next weekend. That has helped perk me up. I also have a wonderful giveaway happening next month, and Kara and I have something wonderful in store, to boot. We have some exciting things happening, and I am looking forward to the fall season.
Onward to THE BOOKS!
