I'll try anything once

The other day, I was feeling really down. Mostly, I was feeling incredibly discouraged because my job search had so far led to nothing. I had had an interview the week before, but I still hadn't heard back, so I figured the position had gone to someone else. I was kicking myself, thinking about how I really should have started my search before I graduated...

But, as it turns out, I needn't have worried. Yesterday, I found out that I got the job! I am so excited, I can't even begin to tell you. It's a small homeopathic medicine company, and I'll be doing mostly editing and proofreading for them, but also some writing. It's full-time, so I'll be pretty busy, but it's so worth it. I don't have much debt from college, but still, it'll be nice to have that off my shoulders! I can also finish paying off my trip to Romania, and maybe start saving to go back...I hope, I hope. But one of the things I'm most excited about is that now I can afford to buy Andrew Bird tickets! At least I have my priorities straight, eh? Ha.

In all seriousness, I still can't believe I've graduated and am now about to join the working world. When I got the phone call, I was just dumbstruck. I know it's silly, but I couldn't help but think that they made a mistake - that any minute they would realize "Wait a minute, we can't hire her - she's still a kid!" I don't feel like an adult, yet. Not entirely. And yet, here I am.

As I write this, I can hear the sound of the rain and the fading rumble of thunder. I know that tonight, I get to see my love. And I can't help but think, things couldn't be better.

(p.s. - Blogger apparently thought that it would be a great idea to delete some of the comments on the last post. I think it was a terrible idea, but Blogger reigns supreme, unfortunately!)

So very young were we

It has been far too long! But with the coming of spring and the ending of school, I'm finding myself newly motivated to start writing here again.

Yes, school has ended, and I am officially a college graduate. I would say something here about how radically different my life is now, but the truth is that it hasn't really sunk in yet. For now, it just feels like any other summer. I'm pretty sure it won't hit me until fall rolls around. But before then, I have to join the working world. It'll be nice to hopefully get a job and have some money to put away, but to tell you the truth, I'm quite nervous that I won't be able to find a job that I really love, and I'll be stuck. Oh well! It'll only be for a couple of years, at which point I want to go to grad school.

Anyway, I've been busy at work on the shop. I have updated some pictures and I've newly listed the dress I'm wearing in these pictures: a fantastic silver 1960's dress. I'll be sad to see it go...

We have baby robins in our backyard again! Here's hoping they make it, like last year's birds, and not like the poor rabbits...
