Oh em gee!
It has been faaaar too long since my last post. I’ve missed my little blog! But I have a good reason, I swear. Ready for it? Ok! I started a new job today!!! Like, a real person job that requires my degree and everything I had been interviewing for this position forever (seriously forever, I applied in September, had 3 interviews, and just found out last week) and it is so exciting to be starting this new chapter in my life. Check off my resolution to make some inroads in my professional life! Anyway, as exciting as this is, it’s messing up my routine in a huge way so it’s going to take a bit of getting used to. Before today, my weekday life consisted of me working from home, writing articles and doing ad work for an architecture and design magazine based in Boston (while fun, was extremely part-time, maybe only 5 hours of real work per week) and working a few shifts a week at a retail store. I am suddenly being thrust into 9-5 life and I have a whole lot less time for fun things like hours of browsing at Whole Foods!
Whew. So this week especially will be crazy with me trying to adjust and whatnot, but I am really going to try to get back to daily/every two days posting. Plus, to add to my wanting to post, I bought myself a new camera as a celebrate-my-new-job present It’s a Canon PowerShot SD1200 IS and it takes fabulous pictures. Just look at how good my juice veggies look in this pic:
Anyway, besides getting hired and continuing to do some magazine ad work I also went skating at Fenway Park this weekend. The experience was unbelievable, and I didn’t even grow up with the Red Sox the way some kids did (Nova Scotian kids don’t have any home sports teams to cheer for, lol).
It was pretty fricking freezing at Frozen Fenway! I wore wool tights, under armour spandex and pants, then on top a long-sleeved shirt, turtleneck, hoodie, and coat. And hat and huge mittens. And I was still kinda cold!
I am so excited about my life right now! Thanks for being around to read about it
