March hare.

Yeah, I'm a day late for the welcoming of March. Whatever, it's not like this blog is quality anymore anyway.

So here's what's new in my life as of March 2012:

-I work. A lot. Which is good, because if I didn't have a job I'm relatively certain I'd just sit at home online all day and mope around about not having a job (or a rich husband). Although, I really like being the store manager. I have time now for the extra responsibilities and I feel like I'm handling it all well so far. The store is MOVING in April! We're going to a new location right off of Chapman and Alafaya (you know the 711 that's there? There's a new shopping center right next to it, and we'll be there!). We've bought three stores and they're currently under construction to make them into one BIG store. So I'm ridiculously excited about getting in there. It'll be big, clean, and new. And, hopefully, because it's right on the highway people will actually be able to, y'know, SEE us, and then sales will improve. Hopefully. HOPEFULLY. May 1st will be our first day, so stay tuned (we're trying to plan some kind of Grand Reopening special thing, and you'll hear about here first)!

Seriously, if you have nothing to do, go through your closet, bring us your crap, and buy a t-shirt. ALSO, if we buy any of your stuff and you decide to put that money towards a purchase, you save on the sales tax. So like, you have no excuse. COME SEE US OMG.

-This spring is going to be hectic (and expensive) because I have three weddings to attend. Granted, I'm thrilled because weddings are FUN and I dearly cherish all three of the brides (I know all of them through the brides).
The first wedding is March 10th (my birthday!) and it's for one of our oldest family friends. Their oldest daughter is getting married.
One week later (on St. Pat's!), my dear friend, Elizabeth, is getting married in Thomasville, GA. It's going to be a beautiful outdoor affair at a southern plantation. I am SO excited. Mom and I are going up for three days, so it'll be a nice little getaway.
And then, at the end of April, I'm flying up to Virginia for my friend Meagan's wedding. I'm also the Maid of Honor! I've never been Maid of Honor before! The last time I was IN a wedding, I was 7 and the flower girl for one of my aunts. So it's been a while! This whole ordeal is full of firsts, too. I've never flown before (okay, that's technically not true. This one time, right after Michael was born, I flew to NC with my Mom, but I don't remember it AT ALL), so this will technically be my first time flying. It's also my first time flying alone. So that's two biggies.

I won't pretend that I'm not TERRIFIED.

My Dad has a severe phobia of flying (hence why I'm nigh on 23 and haven't, in my conscious memory, ever flown before), so I'm a little panicky. I'm also super worried about the TSA, having heard nothing but horror stories. But I figure it this way: since all I've heard is how horrid flying is, I'll be pleasantly surprised if it turns out to not be that terrifying.

I will be live-blogging the whole event via my Twitter (which I almost never use, except to follow other people), so I'll post the link to that as it gets closer.

Also, the whole flight, I'll be thinking of this GIF and either crying or laughing, depending on how the whole thing is:

-I'm in a reading rut. I need help. Any suggestions? Leave a comment!

-I've been looking for jobs somewhere in my field of study, but it's so weird, because I really want to get into editing and publishing, but the written word is going extinct. I'm literally part of a dying breed. So a lot of stuff is moving online, and it's even harder to get work online because you don't have proper job interviews and can't really leave a physical first impression (which is always my trump card) or a hard copy of your resume with a real live person. So it's very odd. But I feel like I'm where I'm meant to be right now, and something will come along when the timing is right. Now it's just a matter of being patient...


Sorry I've been such a terrible blogger lately. I just have a strict "no work blogging" policy and since I'm there 5-6 days a week, there's little else that consumes my time. And I don't like disparaging customers, either, because that's not really fair. We've all had bad days and some of us are just WEIRD, and it's not my place to sit and judge them and discuss (read: make fun of) them when they've left the store. I like to leave work at work. Which means when I'm home, it's pretty much family and Bixby. Which I'm sure you guys are all like, "OMG THAT PUG. IT'S NOT EVEN THAT CUTE." So I'll spare you. Which means that I blog about once a month about all the glamorous, exciting things that aren't happening in my life. :)

If you ever have anything you want me to blog about or any questions about ANYTHING, hit me up! I'm always up for stuff like that.


  1. Are you doing Lent this year? That could be something to blog about :) Or maybe you could post some fiction writing instead?

  2. Hey You!
    I just read a book called How It Ends and I can honestly say it is one of the best books I have ever read! Its by Laura Wiess.
    Anyway, Its pretty good.
