The madness is coming to an end...

Ok, so yes, I might have abandoned my blog this week. I might have not even thought about it. AND, I might have not had a problem with it. Normally, I am a blog obsessed woman. Everything and anything that happens to me usually is processed in my mind as Blog Worthy or Not Blog Worthy.

However, I do have news. I GOT A JOB! And I couldn't be more thrilled about it. After two hellish long months, about a trillion interviews (honestly, I should count, but I went on at least 20), and only a few emotional and mental breakdowns, I am starting my new job on Monday.

First I want to say, interviewing is seriously the worst. I like to compare it to dating. All the companies that wanted me, I didn't want them. And then the companies that I wanted, didn't want me back. I sometimes feel like I am the butt of every joke. Not cool. Not cool.

Now, as to protect myself from Internet stalkers I will not reveal the name of my new employer. I am still working in account management at an ad agency. It's a fun industry and I am so happy to be staying in it. However here are the job facts: 1) I will be making more money 2) I will have a much cooler boss and 3) there is room for me to advance my career. Three very very big pluses in my mind. HOORAY!

If you know me well, you know that I like order in my life. I like things planned and I like structure. I blame my lack of blogging on the fact that my life has been all out of whack the past couple of months. I see the craziness subsiding soon. Bare with me. I apologize for my lack in Flashback Friday posts. My lack of pictures. And my lack of posting in general.

But, I will leave you with a funny conversation I had with my friend Justin tonight. Mind you, Justin is my former home teacher and current executive secretary in my SINGLES ward:

Me: Wow, Justin, you have like no hair on your legs.
Justin: That's because I shaved them
Me: Really? Is if for cycling?
Justin: No, it's for sex.

That's awesome Justin. I didn't know this was allowed. Maybe my bishop is lenient on some rules? I'll have to check into that.

I'm so excited for you. I'm with Amanda on the celebration.

Kristine in a nutshell said...

Yippee Skippee!! We need to go out and celebrate! Neither of us drink, but a high dose of "carbohydrates" always gives me a buzz. By the way, isn't it "brunt" of a joke?? Not butt?? I don't know... it just sounded funny. You didn't know I am tracking your grammar did you? Love you Nat and I'm so stoked for you!

Mar said...

Congrats! I'll miss you until you figure out how to "chat" with me. As for Justin, I am not sure which is more offensive, having sex out of wedlock or shaving his legs.

Miranda said...
