I should be hearing back from a job opportunity today or even tomorrow. I think it's a good opportunity, it's just intimidating to think of moving somewhere totally different by myself. I'll let you guys know. Prayers are always appreciated ;) Until then, I am a morning supervisor at the University's gym and a new Starbucks barista. So much to learn but I work with great people so that is always a plus.

Happy Halloween! and Happy Birthday to my brother-in-law, Henry. I missed yet again the Thriller on Main in town near me. Every year they do the Thriller music video reenactment down main street and I'm sure they have other activities too but I don't know because I always forget about it. I was going to find a picture to represent this but zombies are creepy so I gave up pretty quickly.

Adam came last weekend and we had a friend take our engagement photos. It was good to spend quality time together. I'll post a picture preview later this week when I get them from my friend.

Job Market

Applying for jobs can be so montonous. Each business claims that they're fast-paced and ever growing, oh and would need someone highly organized, with years of experience, and a good sense of humor. I seriously doubt every single business is like that. Sometimes I think they lie just so unsuspecting people will apply and get stuck in the world's most boring job. A lot of jobs I apply for sound down right boring. I literally fell asleep filling out an application the other day. I can't imagine working for said business on a day-to-day basis. I would probably be the most rested person alive. But every once in a while, I find a job opening that sounds so fun and exciting that I start to dream what it would be like to work there. I get my hopes up only to have them dashed upon the rocks of inexperience because that seems to be the only thing employers see in me. What ever happened to giving people a chance to learn, grow and get that experience? I know I could do 95% of the jobs that I apply for without any trouble.

We'll see what the future holds.

35- amount of bug bites I have right now on my legs
17- times I thought about blogging but found myself doing something else
7- kinds of lipsticks my friend and I just tried on in a Rite Aid because we wanted to be bold but not too bold, ya know? We ended up getting a pinkish red and are pretty excited to rock that. (we both got the same color but different tubes, we're not sharing it as that last sentence might suggest.)
5- the amount of weeks I've been waiting to hear back from a job interview. (Yes, I have followed up with them so please don't bother asking me that silly question)
4.5- the number of weeks since I've seen Adam in person (only 2 more to go!)
4:45- the time I will have to wake up tomorrow to help a friend out cover a shift at the gym
4- the amount of really, really stressful things that have happened lately
3- the amount of dollars in my wallet ;)
0.00000001236- amount of work I get paid for these days
