Any advice for a lady that's moving to a new city for a man, and leaving a great job behind with no new offers in the pipeline?
oooh gurl, i feel your pain .. pain in your heart swelling with so much love for your boo that you’re willing to leave an amazing job and city to be with him! it’s not an easy decision and i’m no expert but i have certainly learned a lot in the past year.
so, those are my 2 cents! i hope you don’t mind that i answered this publicly, i’m sure we’re not the only ones to take the plunge! enjoy your new city with your man!! xo
it’s almost 2 o’clock on monday afternoon and you’re just cheesing at your computer.
a year+ ago, i thought i had a good weekend when i was still hungover 3 days later or when i couldn’t find my apartment keys after a wild night out but my life has surely changed for the better since then.
my first week at the new job was pretty damn good. i still have lots to learn but my coworkers have been super helpful and it’s nice to be able to work from home in the mornings. dress code is business casual, emphasis on the casual part, so my closet is finally getting some love again! i’ve decided to keep the bar job 2 nights a week for now because it’s easy/fun money but i’m not so sure about only having one FULL day off .. we’ll see how long this work ethic lasts.
in the end, neither job kept me from having a blast this weekend! i skipped out of work a bit early friday and headed down to columbus (again) with jake for his best friend’s dad’s law school graduation party. we’ve been spending a lot of time in the car lately and i must say, it’s been pretty great to just catch up and talk about anything and everything. saturday we stopped at a fancy mall on our way back home and did a little damage to celebrate the fact that i actually have money to spend and then i headed back north to work a party at the bar. it was a REALLY late night/morning for me so sunday was for sleeping in and vegging out with a bagel and mimosas .. until jake showed up at my door with tix to see aziz downtown!
my cheeks are still sore from laughing last night so i should probably stop with the cheesing but i’m kinda on cloud 9 over my life/career/relationship these days and i guess i really want my computer screen - and anyone who walks by my office - to know.
and by “cool” i mean SWEET/AWESOME/HOLLABACK
suffice it to say, this week > last week. i don’t want to jinx myself on the job front buuut i’m currently sitting in what will (potentially) be my new office, working on a project that i will (potentially) be spearheading and the VP just included me in her weekly staff memo email. that’s good, right?
PRAISE. THE. LAWD.
crossing fingers and toes and eyes that it all comes true.

You might be sitting with him at the kitchen table drinking coffee from mismatched mugs and saying nothing because sometimes saying nothing is the best thing to say. He’s miles away, and you’re thinking you should take a shower or fix your hair or at least brush your teeth because you feel dirty and self-conscious. You wish the sun weren’t so bright on your face and you wish there was something other than corn flakes for breakfast so your stomach won’t start making hideous noises. You’re about to open your mouth and say something to break the silence, but he speaks first. He tilts his head slightly and says:
“You make me really happy.”
And you will agree he does, too.
