Catching Up

It's been a long time since I posted about what's going on in my life so I figured I'd get on that.

I posted a while ago that I was working at That is no longer. I was there maybe a month? I hated it. I didn't like coming home every night feeling like crap because of customers being upset and taking it out on me. I went around to a zillion vet clinics (I kid you not. A zillion.) to fill out appliciations. I got an interview at one clinic but it didn't work out.

I did, however, get a job at a cute local store called The Dog's Meow. It won a Best of Utah award from City Weekly for Best Holistic Cat Food. It's a store that sells healthy, natural food for dogs and cats as well as accessories. I LOVE it. I can't even begin to explain how happy I am. It's such a wonderful feeling doing something that relates to what you love and what you want to do in life. I leave work thinking, "so this is what it feels like to love what you do."

It's only part time though. I traded down, pay wise. I guess I can honestly answer that question that pops up on quizzes, you know the one: would you quit the job you hate for a job you love with lesser pay? Or something like that.

I'm in school part time. I'm ONE credit away from being full time. I was only going to take two classes but I learned that next semester I can get my letter of completion if I take three classes in spring. I'M SO CLOSE TO ACCOMPLISHING SOMETHING! It's been hard taking care of all this school business though. Financial aid and books and homework and blahblahblah. I'm loving every second of it though!

I've been awesome at being social too. I hang out with people now, I never used to do that (except in high school). And I lost 7 pounds.

I'm thinking of just adopting one and bringing it home and once it's here I'll be all, "well it's already here you wouldn't kick a poor rescue out WOULD YOU!?"
