That's What She Said.

Life is funny. I'll save you the hallmark-y stuff about how good things happen when you least expect them and to never fear because life will turn a corner and etcetera, ad infinitum.

Good things are happening to me now, all over the place. First and foremost, a friend is starting her own business (under a very stable contract) and has offered me a position with her that relates to my field of study, lets me work less, and bring in a similar (albeit slightly less, but c'mon, ten hours a week to spend how I please is worth it) income. This means that my stint at my current unstable, obnoxious, uninteresting, too-much-work-for-too-little-appreciation job is coming to a close.


I cannot begin to tell you how this has begun to change my outlook on just about everything. I feel like I'm finally getting out of the rut I've been in for the last almost two years. This has been the catalyst to me feeling like myself again: I am funky, I am stylish, I am different. I'm not the conservative prep with no personality that I've been dressing as for so long.

So I cut my hair. Seven inches off of it, actually, and I feel amazing. And I'm wearing makeup and earrings and acting like I give a damn about what I look like, because I feel good inside.

These are wonderful things.

In addition, we got a puppy who has been the loviest little thing, and I have been delighting in watching him stumble around and learn and grow. His name is Trumpy, he's a daschund, and pictures are forthcoming.

So... things are good. Everything has been a whirlwind of change for the past couple of months, and I think that I'm finally satisfied with where things are laying. I'll leave it all alone for awhile, and enjoy this satisfaction while it lasts.

Congratulations on the new job! It's always good to leave a situation in which you aren't happy for a better one. Enjoy it - and your extra time off! :)
