daily affirmation.

If there’s one thing I want this little blog to teach the world, it’s that you don’t have to settle. For anything. Patience is a virtue, and in the end you’ll be happy.

K and I were also compared to Thelma and Louise at the start of this grand adventure, so this picture seems fitting.

It also seems fitting considering the news I have to share in my next post…

PSA: Starved for entertainment?

Netflix, the savoir of well, everyone, but especially the Funemployed (once you have the SOAPnet daytime schedule memorized, you realize it might be time to back away from the 90s soap reruns). It has introduced me to Breaking Bad, The West Wing, and Scandal; and helped me relive my girlhood crushes on Pacey Witter and Matt Saracen.

But for those of you aching for more current fare, I’m here to tell you The Hunger Games has now made its way to the streaming site.

This might be old news, I’ve been busy working 14-hour days, but I’ve was pretty excited when I  saw it just now.

Things that are not beautiful: Waking up on a Tuesday morning thinking it’s Friday. Apparently 14 hours now feels like a complete work week to me.

lifelong commitments & temp engagements.

Where to even begin.

I had an incredible weekend seeing one of my best friends from high school get married. I was fortunate enough to be in the wedding, which meant a full Friday afternoon rehearsing and reliving the past before starting Saturday early at a hair salon. Don’t worry, we were smart (and lucky) enough to have mimosas and delicious breakfast there as well.

KW & M are just so lovely together. I’m so happy my friend found such a genuine, caring guy. And obviously I think he’s pretty lucky as well.

I spent most of Sunday recovering from all the fun. Then laughing harder than I have in a long time hanging out with my roommates while watching / judging the Country Music Awards. But in all seriousness, without judgment: Blake Shelton, I love you.

So another thing that happened on Friday: I got a call from this boutique temp agency where one of my mom’s friends works. They got a job in they thought might be good for me while I still go on interviews. Obviously, I am in no place to turn down such a favor. And the people at this agency are so, so sweet and great to work with.

I went in for my first day today not really sure what to expect. I’ll be acting as a communications associate for the organization — managing some social media, helping round up press clips. It was a good first day — as temporary as the time might be — and everyone was so lovely and nice.

Oh, also, my day was 14 hours long.

Fourteen. I went from a relaxing 4-month stretch of not stepping foot in an office to a 9:30 a.m. to 11:15 p.m. day. Now, I was forewarned they wanted / needed me to live Tweet a meeting for them tonight, and I didn’t mind doing it. But it was a bit jarring to go from setting my own schedule to having my whole day consumed sitting at a computer. Especially when the weather was an UNBELIEVABLY GORGEOUS 70 degrees today.

I’m not sure what my schedule looks like the rest of the week, but it’s a part-time gig, so the days will likely not all be 14 hours. (I’m bad at math, but that just don’t seem to add up, AMIRITE?) But I’m lucky to have such a great network here, and lucky to have a temp opportunity that will give me some applicable skills to what I want to do eventually.

And there’s a little more movement on the more-permanent job front. So, fingers crossed for that. In the meantime, I’m gonna go fall asleep listening to the soothing sounds of Mr. Shelton’s new album.

Upward,
