my father mother instilled in me that if you don’t see things happening the way you want them to, you get out there and make them happen.

sooo, my mom has taken to posting daily quotes on facebook. i’ll be the first to admit, i usually just skim and/or ignore but i’m so glad i read today’s. it was just the boost i needed as i’ve been stressing over: my pending unemployment after next week; contemplations about life/career; moving and furnishing a new home whilst possibly being unemployed. 

the list goes on but bea’s post got me motivated. if i happen to be without a job while we move, i’ll have more time to unpack and paint and get shit set up. if i get this job that i really want, i’ll (finally) be taking a step towards a (somewhat unconventional) career doing something i actually care about and if i don’t, i’ve got solid letters of recommendation and all weekend to write cover letters. if i’m not making any money, i can’t spend $500 on that wild chair i really want for the new living room but i could maybe go for the more reasonably-priced, neutral option. yadda yadda yadda. with all of these rambles running through my head, i didn’t even notice my phone buzzing in my bag but a voice mail and a call back later and i’ve accepted a new position at an awesome company where i can wear yoga pants every day. holla back. 

new year, new house, new job .. this is as “get out there and make it happen” as it gets!

today in career moves

  • beginning of my last two weeks at my current job and it’s awk-waaard.
  • emailed my old DC boss asking for a letter of rec and she was kind of a beeyotch .. but she’s glad to hear “things are moving along.”
  • letter of rec is necessary for a new job* i’ve been interviewing for the last 2 weeks. i’m hesitant to move forward because the job schedule includes every other saturday and i still have showers/weddings through october but they asked me to send them the dates i’d need off and see if they can work around them sooo i guess that’s good? 
  • i’m 29 and i have no clue what i want to be when i grow up and it’s stressing me out.

*potential new job revolves around wearing yoga pants, doing yoga and getting my community to do yoga a.k.a. dream job .. i think.
