I know I wrote about a “Real”  job that I got, it’s most of the reason I haven’t been posting. I work full time as the front office manager at an optometry and optical office. I really enjoy it, I love the people I work with, and the company is taking care of me – IRA, paid vacation, sick time. No health (yet) but thanks to the Affordable Care Act, I can stay on my parent’s until 26. There’s also something up in the air but, eh, let’s just say an opportunity. I will update accordingly.

But for this year, I don’t think I can successfully make any goals. I think last year at this time, I thought I would be in Chile now. Unfortunately, I am not. Student loans, life and I will admit it, fear got in the way. I do want to travel. I know how much it opens your horzions and makes you question what’s around you but WHY DOES EVERYONE KEEP ASKING ME ABOUT JOBS? That’s how I feel. I don’t necessarily want to get a job, get married, buy house, have a family all before I’m 30. Give me some time!

What happened to fucking around in my 20s? But anyways I’ve got this “sweet gig” of a job as the bf calls it, and we will see where it leads. I’m learning a lot about insurance, and health care. Learning is good, and I haven’t given up on maybe, one day, attempting to go to Chile. It’s something I should do soon and I’m in a very good position now to do so – it’s just the loans, and the fact that this job I have now is a great first job.

Student loans suck!

That is the lesson behind my life so far. And also why I can’t seem to make any plans.

All My Plans Fall Apart

You are what you eat


Recently, I’ve been noticing that since I don’t cook often for grandpa (about 99% of the time, I’m just eating and making my own food), I eat strange things. I eat pretty much what I want and I try to buy only things I will eat and quickly too. I feel like too much stuff goes moldy if I try to buy things I don’t love. So this has made up a lot of my meals recently:


Hot chocolate (with soy milk), hummus, cucumbers, cheese (lactose free) and crackers. Oh and a gluten free cookie!

I love allllllll of those things and it’s been nice to only eat what I love recently!

I will try to do a knitting and life update post – psst. I got a real, full time job with benefits, at a small company. Very happy so far!

Moving up – hopefully

I had an interview (on the phone) today. It went well, and I will find out soon if I have the job. Without exhausting everyone with details, it can be called a small beginning, but I hope if I get it will lead to bigger and better things. I think the reason I got this interview is the universe: Three or so days ago, right before I wrote my last post, I came to the conclusion that I didn’t absolutely need a job before the summer and that if I didn’t get one the WHOLE summer, I would live. That if I didn’t get an awesome job right out of college, I would be emotionally alright. And tada, an interview pops up. The universe knew I was balanced and didn’t think I NEEDED this job to live and be happy with myself.

(The only question I may or may not have screwed up on is the “ideal job” question – I was honest, and I didn’t describe the job I was interviewing for, but I didn’t want to suck up so I feel like I did the right thing)
